Pours dark with a fizzy short lived dark khaki head. Chili pepper and cinnamon on the nose. Barrel is subtle to start but grows as it warms. Great pepper flavor. Whiskey, caramel, and cinnamon as complements. Roasted malt and dark chocolate. Smooth body with medium carbonation. Nice heat that doesn't cover up the other aspects. Creamy. Fantastic beer. Well balanced, bold flavors, and good heat.

Undoubtedly Abraxas characteristics, with perhaps a lighter sprinkle of cinnamon and better BA character. If you're looking for more balance, perhaps BA Mex Cake beats out Abraxas. If you're looking for more cinnamon, Abraxas is the winner. Great nose, good balance, dark pour that drinks oh so good.
