Hobgoblin Chocolate Fudge Cake and Filling

Introduction

Chocolate cake will never be the same again! This sour cream cake is dark, rich and super sinful, incorporating both a good dose of Hobgoblin beer and espresso. The cream cheese filling and frosting has a reduced beer caramel shot in it as well, just for kicks! Chocolate cake will never be the same again!
