750 ml. shared bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and spices. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, spices, chocolate, and some vanilla. Nice, but much prefer regular Abraxas.

Leighton (17475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2015
Bottle shared late-nite at RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Cheers! Pours oily black-brown with a frothy beige head. Hefty coffee in the nose, light mint and peanut butter. Medium sweet flavour with light mint chocolate, some earthy bitterness, moderate coffee, cocoa. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with more minty notes, good roast, chocolate, bittersweet coffee, earth. Great stuff.

solidfunk (6875) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Well integrated coffee and big roast. More chili evident here than in vanilla version. Black pour with good head and lacing. Bittersweet finish with light vegetable coffee aroma. Very good but less so than other variants. Tap at churchkey thanks to iphonephan.

Nickls (2284) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Tap. Like like all he other variants. Cold pressed coffee is the dominating aroma, faint dark chocolate, and not getting the rich cakiness of the vanilla version in the aroma. Flavor is a little more interesting, with a great dark bitter chocolate presence, though the coffee is right there all the way. Feels less sticky and lighter in the body than the vanilla.

750ml. Lots of cinnamon, but in a very unsweetened way. Almost overpowers everything else. bitter coffee. Slight Pepper on the back end.

HonusWagner (1978) - Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2015
At Perennial 4th Anniversary party. Nose is coffee, semisweet chocolate, peppery in the finish. Front of palate is cocoa and cinnamon with some coffee. Finish is strong pepper heat reminiscent of California Brandy Hunah. It burns all the way into my chest. I think a bit more subtlety would serve this well...a downgrade from the last time I tried Abraxas (2013?).

markextrae (3213) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle shared at the Moeder Lambic cellar session 2015, shared by dennis, side by side with the regular and barrel aged version. poured a murky dark brown to black colour with a non lasting tanned head on top. aroma has that typical vegetable coffe note, like over-boiled vegetables, mixed with green peppers and jalapenos, and it really takes over the base part, the cinnamon and spices are comeplete masked by musky coffee. still a good amount of sweet bakers chocolate and chocolate fudge. mixed with some burned caramel. bitter burned coffe. just not that good. i donít get all those high ratings at all. (set aside the rare factor) the guys from perennial do know how to brew a incredible coffe stout looking at the regular sump. this is just a bad blend. itís like drinking 2 totally different beers blended together. to bad. i think we all agreed that the regular version was the best one. and was just miles ahead compared to this version.
