The chili spice, sweet vanilla and chocolate and slight bitter finish works so perfectly in the beer. A must have for stout and big beer lovers.

On tap at the Pine Box Seattle. Had this next to Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout and Berserker ... an interesting comparison of three powerful Imperial Stouts.

Abraxas is a great overall stout (roasty, cocoa, vanilla), with a spicier profile than either of the other Impy Stouts. Cinnamon is what I got most, in aroma and taste. I didn't pick up as much chile pepper heat as others seem to, but being a chile head of sorts, it probably takes a pretty good dose of pepper to make me notice. I saw a bit of chile influence.

It's a great stout, and I'd love to find bottles around Seattle some day.

So many flavors. Slightly sweet, slightly spicy and ultimately outstanding. Almost a great meal in a glass. I can't wait to try this Barrel Aged.
