CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 9, 2013
750ml bottle: pours an oily opaque with dense froth of beige head. Has a rich sweet dark caramel and chocolate nose with some dark fruits. Starts with good rich fullness and chewy dark caramel sweetness with lots of raisins and molasses with a touch of warming spice in the finish. Has good complexity and should age well.

750ml bottle at brewers republic, cos. Strong cinnamon aroma with notes of chocolate and a hint of chilies. Pours black with a thin light brown head and no lacing. Taste is rich chocolate malt with notes of chilies. Finishes smooth with a strong cinnamon and dry finish. Delightful.

On tap at Tap and Handle. Pours black with a bubbly tan head and a treacle and pepper aroma. There is a chocolate flavor with some cinnamon and mild chili pepper. Complex and very tasty.

750, shared with only one other person. OH EM GEE. This is a cinnamon bomb. But as dontdrinkbeer says. Don’t be a bitch about the cinnamon. A thinner less flavorful than hunaphu, some chillis in the there at the very end.

Pre-DLD bottle share at Hampton Inn. Pour is deep brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of semi-sweet chocolate, roasted marshmallow, coffee grounds, cinnamon, and slight chili. Finish is sticky sweet with a slight spice and alcohol warmth. Great.

It aint no huna but its aight in my book. Cinnamon and chilis are the dominant flavors with the chocolate not very present. The base beer flavors are licorice, a bit of burnt toast and some caramel. Finishes quite sweet and cinnamon forward. Overall a really nice beer.

Huhzubendah (2399) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Served alongside Cigar City Hunahpu’s. The beer is black and viscous with an oily beige collar. Aromas of heavy cinnamon with some peppery heat. Vanilla and chocolate are there as well, but in the background a bit. Really nice flavor, with cinnamon leading the way. Rich, roasted malt with hints of coffee. Thick body with a delicate sweetness throughout. While Hunahpu’s still reigns supreme, in my opinion, Abraxas is certainly a delicious and well crafted beer well worth seeking out.

MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle @ THT May, courtesy of kermis. Pours a pitch black beer with almost no head on top. Aroma is mostly coffee, licorice, cacao and some dark fruits. Flavor is very sweet, touches of chocolate, boozyness, some pepper sensation in the background. Very smooth drinking, great stuff!

dEnk (3682) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle @ tht. Aroma is marsepin, caramel, bitterkoekjes, chocolate malt and other sweetness. Flavour is very bitter of dark chocolate, roast, coffee with sweetness of marsepin. Too much for me.

Benzai (7219) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2014
Sampled from bottle @ Tha Hague Tasting thanks to kermis. Opaque pitch black color, average to medium sized rown head. Aroma and taste are malts, some alcohol, lots of chocolate, some vanilla, dark fruits, dark malts, slightly herbs or spices, a bit sweet and bitter at the same time. Good beer for sure but I’m not really keen on the vanilla.
