I'm sorry but regular abraxis is better. I was disappointed this varaints didn't have a stronger coffee flavor. I had it from the tap at the brewery pub.

Black with a large mocha foam that dies to a creamy thin blanket, then nothing, leaving brown legs that stain the glass with a swirl.

Smell is raisin and loads of cinnamon, much like a spiced bagel, with a red fruity sort of pepper, or is that the coffee? There's a slight char of brown sugar and a touch of licorice as well.

A tangy flavor of roasted dark malt is joined by a solid punch of dusty cinnamon-brown sugar and a good toastiness. I can actually feel a bite of pepper towards the swallow, which I don't normally expect much of in Abraxas. Coffee isn't contributing much but a red fruitiness and maybe a touch of bitterness, even as it warms, which is pretty disappointing, considering the clout that something like BA Sump brings.

The body is moderate, but a swish creates a substantial thickening with a soft carbonation before the semi-dry, tingly finish.

The beer pours a Pitch Black with a large frothy brown head. It has medium carbonation. The beer smells of cinnamon sticks, coffee roast, baker’s chocolate, hot pepper, cayenne, and nutmeg. It tastes of cinnamon sticks, roasted coffee beans, cayenne, nutmeg, with mild chille heat. The mouthfeel is medium and creamy. Overall, a very good stout from Perrnnial. Just wish there was more spicy, hunapu is my favorite in this style of stout.

Looks like a black hole..smell is cinnamon, coffee and chili peppers..my throat tingles a bit from the chilli pepper..taste is cinnamon up front mixed nicely with the chili pepperz and coffee is bringing up the rear..very nicely done.. sweet and thick with very little carbonation..this turns the regular abraxas up a hefty notch, and is quite delicious..one of the best coffee stouts ive had and one of the best stouts period..fantastic!!
