I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at perennial during abraxas week 2015. Thougjt that regular Abraxas had vanilla (or at least the perennial website says it does). Maybe this is just more? Anyway, Cinnamon is still the dominant theme. But isn’t completely overpowering like in the 2013 regular abraxas I had. The vanilla doesn’t come through as much as it mutes the cinnamon. I guess more of a balanced flavor between chocolate and cinnamon with a touch of vanilla. Nice little pepper kick on the back end, which works amazing with the cinnamon. Really solid.

On tap at Perennial. Comes black with a small beige head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, spice, and coffee. Taste is vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate, cinnamon, and some coffee. Very nice.

jet black, thin cream head, small lacing. Light heat from anchos is married well with sweeter cocoa nibs, think spiced holiday supper. Front palate is harsh sugar, burning and gritty with some heat before softer, more caramel mid, sticky cocoa mid. Not enough heat esp when compared to the nose. No bitterness or hop presence through the watery, light-plastic booze end, full and sweet. Nuance only in nose interplay.

Sampled at Max’s Rare and Obscure Part 8. Pours a murky, deep black with some brown head. Nose has... whoa, wow, lots of cinnamon and vanilla, brown sugar, cakey, raisin, molasses, some clove too, a bit of candle. Flavor is solid, malt, brown sugar and caramel, cinnamon, clove, the chili comes through as black pepper, some raisin. The heat on the end is pleasant.

On tap at Tria Taproom. Black brown with some edgy tan foam. Nose is chocolate, raisin, vanilla, coconut, cinnamon and mild chili. Medium body with a tang and a tingle. Taste is caramel, chocolate, vanilla, chili and licorice finishing earthy with some wood.

PhillyCraft (4542) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Draft at Tria. Pours midnight black with small to medium beige top that fades after a couple minutes. Medium bodied for a barrel aged stout, not overly sticky either. Aromas and flavor are roasted barrel, cocoa, lots of cinnamon stick, light vanilla comes through in the finish/aftertaste. Really well done, I would take a regular or barrel aged Abraxas over any dark lord these days. Only complaint is maybe it could have been creamier with a touch more vanilla.

ryanfolty (2209) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2014
February 5, 2014 - on tap at iTap. Black pour with limited head. Aroma was the usual delicious abraxas shockingly with some vanilla. Taste is like the base as well, but the vanilla sweetness cuts down some of the spice. Full bodied and spicy finish.

Beerman6686 (5622) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2013
This one poured a very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was a good bit of vanilla, roast, cinnamon and light alcohol. Flavor is mainly sweet vanilla, chocolate and cinnamon. Dessert beer for sure. Nice stuff.

Really good variation, lots of vanilla, the pice is still prevalent, it is a bit sweet.
