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.
