Yet another bottle provided by my favorite trader. Thanks, Dan... Again. Opened at a small share a few weeks ago. This review is from notes. Though, the beer has stuck in my head.

A- Beautiful sludge. Finger of brown head fades within a minute or so. You're not gonna get more black than this. An intimidating and ominous onyx.

S- Big time bourbon and chocolate/fudge right off the bat. Some delicate cinnamon follows. Splendid barrel character on this beer lending some vanilla and caramel to the mix. The bourbon rides the whole way through. I would give it a five, but I'm not smelling any spice. Especially compared to regular Abraxas.

T- Bourbony fudge and dark/sweet chocolates with hints of cinnamon. Can't get over how wonderful this beer takes to bourbon. The tannins provide a understated vanilla/toffee flavor. While I didn't get spice on the nose, I'm getting hints of it here and there on the flavor. There is also the faintest bit of booze, but it only adds to the complexity. Such balance here.

M- Thick. Oily. Awesome.

There are few imperial stouts that I would like to, and probably could, drink the whole bottle. I wish I wasn't so generous in sharing this bottle, cause I could've taken it out alone. 6-7 ounces was such a tease. But who doesn't like to be teased? If the opportunity arises, I must trade for this beer again. Phenomenal stuff.

A-Black in the glass, some carbonation, one finger brown head that dissipates quickly.

S-Very good bourbon, chocolate is there, the peppers are mild with a nice cinnamon.

T-The bourbon is spot on present but not overpowering. Chocolate is there, mild chili heat followed up with great cinnamon.

M-Medium bodied, with mild heat and a tad creamy.

O-Wow. One of the best beers available. A must try.
