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.

4.58/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - The beer was a dark black color, looking like used motor oil. A slight mocha head topped the glass.

Smell - The aroma I detected was almost a syrupy coffee smell. The sweetness in the aroma was almost overwhelming.

Taste - This seems a little lighter than regular, but certainly tastier. Initially, I am led to believe this will be sweet like molasses and coffee. Then, I notice cinnamon and vanilla. I do no get the impression of spice in this one. The warming in the aftertaste is mild, but it is the thick sweetness that gives the biggest impression.

Mouthfeel - This is thick and coats the tongue and throat. It leaves an impression well after the swallow.

Overall - I liked this one a lot. This is a fantastic stout.
