8 oz. pour for an anniversary part at Bier Station in KC.

The nose on this beer is just awesome! Tasting this side by side with the regular abraxas. The barrel adds a flavor profile that in my opinion detracts from the already great base version. The vanilla from the barrel masks the chili heat and mutes the cinnamon. Really good beer but not worth what you would have to give up in trade for a bottle of it.

Amazing. So good. The bourbon really ties the room together.

batch 1....can't taste the rare...a nice stout that pushes the cinnamon too far for my tastes and while I really liked the base, something here just didn't do it for me. The lingering heat from either the peppers, the cinnamon, or both, was too pervasive and distracting for me.

Amazing! Had it on tap at Perennial. One suggestion I offer is to let it warm up quite a bit. The cinnamon explodes in your mouth when it's warmer! It was fantastic!

A perfect way to describe this is a cinnamon infused, super fresh dark fudge brownie. Awesome deep fudge notes along with a nice cinnamon hint. Not a cinnamon bomb like others in this style have been. Barrel comes through exactly like it should with subtle whisky notes. Everything compliments each other well.
