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. (957 characters)

As with many other reviewers, I find the coffee detracts from the regular beer rather than adding to it. Aroma overall is fairly muted; some coffee but restrained. Flavor is coffee dominated, overwhelming the spice and vanilla notes of the base beer. Body seems much thinner. I love the base beer, perhaps more than the BA version, and the creamy body is one of the reasons. By no means a bad coffee beer, but I'd take regular old Speedway over this for what it's worth. (470 characters)

Name is exactly what comes through. The coffee flavor adds a complexity factor to the original, while not overpowering the other flavors. (138 characters)

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

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 (538 characters)
