Got this in a trade awhile back and left it in the fridge for about 6 months before tasting with family and friends recently. I honestly think this helped preserve the coffee flavor, which was still strong and very well-balanced. I've never had BAA or regular Abraxas, but I will say that this was the first beer we drank on Dark Lord Day 18, and it was definitely the best beer we drank all day.

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.
