The base beer this year is the same as abraxas (which is different from previous years)

The beer pours a dark, but not inky/oily black with no head or visible carbonation. The nose is fresh chopped mint followed by milk chocolate - muted compared to the regular version- with a hint of barrel notes. The taste bring forward a piney and biting mintiness, some chocolatey sweetness, and a subtle oaky vanilla that lingers along with the alcoholic after-burn. The mouthfeel is smooth, rich, and full bodied with little carbonation, but is still slightly bitter and biting to cut the through the sweetness. There are minimal overt barrel characteristics, but the beer feels more balanced compared to the regular version. As the beer warms, the bitterness and booze become more pronounced hurting the overall drinkability. I definitely prefer this beer to the liquid-thin-mint regular version, but will let it continue to mellow for a few months before revisiting.

Serving type: on-tap
