The Beer Cake and the Madison beer Naked Beer are a two-beer pairing that is a bit of a cross between the beer and chocolate flavors of a traditional Moosehead brew and the chocolate and vanilla of a Bourbon barrel-aged beer.
The pairing combines a chocolate and peanut butter beer cake and the flavors of the Madisons Madison barrel-aging beer.
The Beer Cake is brewed with fresh, unpasteurized Moosehead beer and Madison bourbon barrels, as well as vanilla beans, chocolate, peanuts, and honey.
The Madison is aged in bourbon barrels with vanilla beans and chocolate, and it is aged on a full-bodied Belgian style yeast.
The beer cake is filled with a combination of dark chocolate, peanut butter, and caramel.
Both are paired with chocolate chips, caramel, and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
The result is a combination that is sweet, slightly fruity, and slightly salty, but not as salty as the Madys.
Both beers are served in glasses or small pours, with a large spoon to scoop the beer into.
The Beer cake is served with a maple glaze, and Madisons maple glazed beer cake.
The chocolate cake is garnished with vanilla bean cookies.
The maple glazes are layered over the beer cake to create the chocolate-covered beer cake in the middle.
The Madisons beer Naked is a bourbon barrel-finished beer.
It has been aged on an American oak bourbon barrel for seven years in bourbon and rye barrels, and the resulting beer is aged for six months.
Both beer cakes are served with caramel sauce, honey, and maple glazing.
Both Madys beer Naked and Moosehead beers Naked are available at select Moosehead locations in Toronto, Quebec, and Ontario.
Both beers are $18 a pint.
