Bomber. Batch 253-254. Chili pepper and sweet malt and chocolate dominate the nose. Black with no head. Awesome flavor with chocolate and chili peppers dominating. Sweet and silky smooth.
On tap at Underground. Pours a deep black to brown with a medium sized tan head. Big roast, a hint of coffee, dark fruit, almost a licorice tone? Medium bodied, big and sweet, fruity with some cherry and warmth peeking through. Super fruity, spicy roast, warm alcohol, chocolate, cocoa into the finish, more lingering cherry tones, maybe some cinnamon. Odd but tasty. Big and tasty, just on the drinkable side of cloying.

Bottle-pours pretty much motor oil black with a small fizzy tan head with barely any lacing. A bit of legs on this one but not like some others of this style. Nose has lots of cinnamon, spice, burnt malt, quite a bit of hops, vanilla and alcohol. Quite a bit going on here and i like that! Flavors seem to exhibit lots of cinnamon and pepper, almost too much given this beer could possibly have alot to offer. The chillies are very up front however, i do get alot of the coco nibs and vanilla as it warmed up a bit. This is on the borderline between great and sensational.

22 ounce bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, spice, vanilla, and malt. Taste is chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, roasted malt, and some heat from the chilies. Nice. bierenjoyer1 (103) - Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2016
Very nice stout this year, great stout aroma of cocoa, molasses, vanilla, cinnamon and malt. Pours black with a moderate brown foam. The flavor really excites the senses with cocoa, cinammon, and chillies. An awesome combination for the 2016 edition. Ahuth (609) - Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Bottled. Pours heavy black. No head. Smells vanilla chocolate. A spices hint. The palate is thick. The taste big. Chocolate vanilla and toffee. There is a big pepper spice after taste. A little over the top but doable.

22oz bottle pours out black topped with a small tan head. Nose is big cinnamon vanilla roast malts coffee chocolate. Taste is more of the heavy cinnamon roast malts pepper vanilla. dinkle50 (1488) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Black pour with little to no head. Aroma of leather and a bit of roasted grain. A little cinnamon too. Aroma is pretty typical of a milk stout. Prickly carbonation. Spicy, thin mouth. Vanilla and a bit of cinnamon in the flavor. A bit vegetal. This is just spicy to be spicy, it isn’t adding anything to the beer. Kind of a mess honestly. No lace present.

22 oz bomber pours pitch black with a tan head. Get some dark chocolate on the nose initially, some vanilla. Silky-smooth mouthfeel. Clean, bitter finish. Pretty nice. Berard (639) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours super dark brown with very little head. Mild mocha aroma. Nice balance of sweetness and burn from the chills.

Aroma of vanilla and cinnamon. Flavor is slightly sweet, some vanilla, some cinnamon, and some heat at the end from the chillies. This is the closest thing to abraxas I have had. Awesome stout
