6 oz pour of batch 2.

Smells of cinnamon and chocolate fudge, with the barrel taking the back seat. Taste follows the smell, still not much from the barrel which is quite a letdown. Mouthfeel is creamy and full-bodied.

Overall, this is a great stout, but the lack of barrel presence in this beer makes it taste more like a year old regular abraxas (which I've had). Not worth the price of admission. Had Proprietors right after, and it was a much better example of a BA stout!

FYI: The blend is insane!

On tap at City Beer Store during the event with Perennial. Beer pours pitch black with thick and creamy dark brown head. Head dissipates to slick of brown after a few minutes, leaving heavy lacing and alcohol legs.

Nose is really nice, dark chocolate, espresso, graham cracker, cinnamon, vanilla, toasted coconut, sweet fudgy brownie. Can't really detect any of the chile in the nose.

Taste follows the nose exactly, very well balanced flavors of sweeter fudge and bitter dark chocolate, fruity espresso, graham cracker spices with the extra hit of cinnamon. Whiskey barrel contributions mid palate as the beer warms with vanilla, toasted oak and vanilla, caramel. Finish is long and lingering chocolate, spices and the chili hits in the back of the throat, light vegetable and spicy chili.

Fully body, thick and creamy beer. Very slow sipper as the flavors are big and bold but balanced, without any alcohol heat. Very nice beer.
