Bottle to glass. Pours a pitch black color with a thin creamy brown head. Aroma is big roasted malts, coffee, light chocolate. Flavor has a solid burnt roasted malts, light chocolate, big coffee. Medium to heavy body with a huge coffee in the back. Absolutely phenomenal!

after4ever (6265) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Draft at SB. Absolutely, fully delicious. Pours jet black with a dense, creamy, and lasting dark tan mousse atop. Dense roasty coffee nose, showing earthy coffee grounds, roasty, nutty bean husk notes, some charcoal in the back, malt sugar, baking chocolate, and a little bit of plum. Sticky thick heavy body with sluggish carb. Luscious little tongue-grabbing beer. Roasty thick heavy coffee, chocolate, and black bread on the mid palate. Oily. As it warms, the coffee flavors deepen and show broader and broader complexity, revealing tangy pitted tree fruit notes and sharp earthy roast. Long heavy roasty finish. Delectable beer.

Black with a thin ring of tan head. Has a cocoa and chocolate nose. Carmel notes. Super complex. Creamy. Frothy. Delicious.

bytemesis (3521) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle thanks to beernbourbon! Pours opaque black with a medium dark brown head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, very coffee forward, cocoa, perhaps a touch of cinnamon. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, roasty with a touch of cinnamon. Definitely coffee forward. Medium body with a bit of acidity. The coffee in this case detracts from the subtle nuances of the base beer. Bummer.

Dark obviously, little head but a little dusting remains throughout. Cinnamon dark chocolate with some roast. Cinnamon in the flavor as well, not picking up much chili, but the coffee subjugated other flavors quickly. Bitter, cocoa finish. I like it but feels diminished compared to my memory of regular Abraxas.

Bottle @ RBSG Grand Tasting. Pours a black color with a small tan head. Has a roasted malty coffee aroma with weak hints of spicy chili. Roasted malty weak tart coffee flavor with hints of chocolate and chili. Has a roasted malty coffee and chocolate finish.

seymour (1478) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Tasted at Greg’s honey-themed beer gathering, thanks for sharing Tony. It poured an opaque black colour with thin but persistent brown foam. It’s as crazily complex and delicious as advertised: imperial stout with ancho chiles, cacao nibs, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, aged on Sump coffee beans. Exquisite smoky, woodsy, roasty, nutty aspects. Tart and toasty, with a subtle yogurt-y bite. Great balance of sweet, tart, bready, and pleasantly acidic, like cherry pie. Fantastic stuff.

brokensail (11600) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Black pour with no head. Woah, really, really disappointing. Infected? Slight sourness and lots of green peppercorn on the nose. Some cinnamon, plenty of roasted malt, and cocoa powder. Not very good... Flavor is quite acidic and borderline sour. Tons of bitter coffee grounds and green pepper. Kind of spicy with some cinnamon and mild chili. A lot of roast and ash. A let down.

GenDV138 (1834) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle during RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting at Schlafly Tap Room. Black with tan head. Aromas of oak, dark fruit, smoke. Tastes of oak, chocolate, caramel, dark fruit. Full body with a dry finish. Prefer regular Abraxas to this one.
