Served in Perennial snifter

This beer pours out a midnight black body devoid of any lighter hues and supports an inch and a half of lightly tawny foam that showed moderate head retention.Slick,oily lacing was left on the glass.The nose is assertive and a good indicator of the beer's constituent parts.Big,fresh espresso roast initially followed by fragrant cinnamon then quality bittersweet chocolate,scalded milk and finally an earthy peppery note from the chiles.Taste follows the nose for the most part.Slightly sweetened espresso,baked sugars,rich chocolate,cinnamon and a slight peppery heat.Mouthfeel is appropriate.Creamy and viscous with a moderate coffee bitterness and medium/full body.Seriously balanced with a true coffee presence and a creamy moderate sweetness.Dangerously drinkable.I love the base beer and I love high quality coffee so this is extremely successful as far as I'm concerned.Hope I can score BA Abraxas when it comes around.

A - Dark chocolate with a big frothy rocky head to it

S - Green, fresh and slightly vegetal coffee, cinnamon, spice, dark chocolate, fudgy goodness, and slight peanut butter

T - Dark chocolate, slightly astringent dark espresso, fresh deep chocolate, slight peanut butter, slight spice and cinnamon meld together well

M - Thick creamy beer with slight astringency and heat from the cinnamon and peppers

O - Really good with the coffee adding a dark chocolate and fresh coffee that adds some nice depth and flavor to a good base beer

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Viscous black with a huge khaki head. Great retention. Surface foam lasts forever.

Smell - Peppers, cinnamon, coffee, and chocolate. Lacking the graham cracker around that I love in Abraxas.

Taste - Chocolatey and more peppery. Coffee adds some acidity to it. Cinnamon and chocolate finish.

Mouthfeel - Thick and viscous, but not too sweet. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Disappointing compared to the hype, but it's still a very good beer.
