tiong (10000) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 18, 2019
UPDATED: APR 19, 2019 750ml bottle. Thanks for the trade Alex! 2018 vintage. Vertical with regular Abraxas. Intense, spicy, smooth and bourbony with some vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa, chocolate, oak and toffee. Awesome, really tasty and complex spicy barrel aged stout. Smoother than the regular one, spiciness is really well rounded by the lovely bourbon notes.

snowcrash000 (755) - Cologne, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2019 Pours a pitch black coloration with a small, creamy head. Smell is dominated by rich chocolate fudge and an intense cinnamon note, as well as a strong earthy, oaky, peppery rye barrel note and hints of vanilla and chili. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by chocolate fudge, cinnamon and and a fantastic rye barrel character of earthy, musty, oaky, peppery notes, as well as lighter notes of roasted malt, vanilla, chili peppers and just a hint of dark fruits. Finishes with a light sweetness and some cinnamon and oaky, spicy notes lingering in the aftertaste. Full, creamy mouthfeel with a rich body and low carbonation. The cinnamon and chili work really well with the peppery, spicy rye barrel character, although I have to say that the cinnamon presence is way overdone here for my personal taste and that there is also not quite enough of a bitter/roasty counterpoint to the sweeter chocolate and vanilla notes. Considering the ridiculous secondary market value of this, I'd honestly rather have Bomb!.

juiceisloose (2323) - Windermere, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2018 750ml bottle. Pours nearly pitch black in color with barely any head. The aroma is really nice showing notes of dark chocolate, cinnamon, chili pepper spice, dark roasted malts and smooth bourbon laden oak with a touch of spicy rye. The flavor follows suit with notes of the dark chocolate, cinnamon, and chili pepper spices right up front followed by the dark roasted malts and smooth bourbon oak to balance things out while some spicy rye ties it all together. Not overly spiced or too much heat from the chili peppers which is nice. Everything is very well balanced. Full bodied and smooth with soft carbonation that leads to a dark chocolate, cinnamon, and spicy rye with whiskey soaked oak on the finish with soft lingering chili pepper spice long after the finish. Really well balanced and perfectly done with the spices. Really damn good barrel aged imperial stout.
