Bottle share in Orland Park. Pour is very dark brown with no head. Aroma of chocolate syrup, cinnamon, oak chips, vanilla, and roaste grain. Flavor is similar with added notes from the barrel aging - whiskey, vanilla extract, oak, molasses, and liquorice. Great.

Bottle: Thanks, Nolan. Black, oily, & thick, just like regular Abraxas. Deep-tan colored, leathery foam rests on top for only a few moments before turning to a collar. Aroma... Wow. Warm cinnamon Teddy Graham crackers, sweet vanilla cake, snickerdoodle cookies, brown sugar, light fudge drizzle, & a mild sense of bourbon soaked wood chips hanging around just outside the periphery... So smooth, so complex & unique. Taste gives way to some dry coffee beans but youíre quickly launched into a world of cinnamon graham crackers, lightly tannic barrel presence, bourbon infused dark chocolate, robust vanilla, & some burnt brown sugar in the finish. Finishes with a lingering taste of cinnamon cookies drizzled in chocolate & vanilla goodness. My god. A fantastic beer.

artmcd8 (1546) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle thanks to beerman6686. Pours a dark brown to black with a slight brown foam head. Aromas of alcohol, fudge brownie, cinnamon. The taste is sweet and not much barrel comes through until it heats up. Really good stuff in smaller amounts.

Bottle to goblet at the RBAG14 warmup Wow...okay, I just finished slamming down a Prairie Bomb which was amazing BTW, but this is AWESOME! Huge caramel, molasses, rum, raisins, and whiskey....damn, I donít know, thereís much more going on. Dark creamy, silky dark brown with a tan head thatís so thick that requires 7 rinsings and some scrubbing to clean. Taste is my momís rum Christmas, fruitcake...rum, maraschino cherries, currants, vanilla, candied fruit.

DuffMan (6543) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle, RBAG 2014 prelim. Extremely viscous near black, clinging viscously to the glass. Wow. Incredible aroma, brothy, soy sauce, burnt marshmallow, breadcrusts, cinnamon, sponge toffee, fudge fudge fudge!!!! Holy flavour bomb craziness-- so incredibly dense, but balanced. This absolutely CRUSHES in the impy stout arena, risky in its spiciness, thick with toasty caramel, intriguing with its peppery heat. Certainly one of the most compelling beers Iíve had to date. World class,
