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.

Serving type: bottle

Had on tap at the Sump release party. Side by side with Sump and regular Abraxas.

A: Black as night, little to no head, strong legs in the glass.

S: Cinnamon. Less coffee than anticipated, though there is some. A little bit of vanilla.

T: A bit of a letdown, actually. The coffee is present, but muted, especially when compared directly to Sump. The standard Abraxas flavors are also more muted, subtler, smoother... but not in a way that really adds to complexity. This was agreed upon by everyone in my tasting group.

M: Great mouthfeel, just like regular Abaxas, but a little hot in the back.

Overall, this disappointed me. I was hoping for an Abraxas-style cinnamon/coffee bomb, and while the flavors were all there, they seemed to detract from one another rather than amplify.

Serving type: on-tap
