2019 vintage. Drank this beer through its entire flavor profile, from cold out of the fridge until room temperature. At all temperatures, the nose/aroma was strong peppers with slight cinnamon and no coconut. Taste/finish was similar with faint coconut.

Bottle at share. Near black, small patchy head. Aroma is coffee, roast malts and coconut. Taste brings a little sweetness, roasty bitterness and light notes from the coconut.

Matte black with a creamy mocha head settling to a persistently thick blanket.

The added coconut here seems to mute everything that normally unabashedly explodes within Abraxas. There is no pepper whatsoever, and there is a very mild cinnamon presence compared to other versions. This, in conjunction with the semi-dry finish, actually helps make it very easy to drink, leaving room for notes of chocolate pie, charred crust, a nice roast, and a little alcohol sting--all of which seems totally uncharacteristic to Abraxas, or at least not easily detectable in other vintages or variants. As it warms, the coconut does add a hint of florality, and I also begin to taste Spanish peanut, but the added coconut doesn't successfully express itself overall.

The medium body is unexpectedly fizzy and frothy on the palate, quite light and lifting even, particularly for Abraxas.

poured from a 750mL bottle into an oversized snifter. (have had on draft a couple times too.) pours a thick, sludge black with a few coconut floaties in top. dark brown collar. smells and taste similar to regular abraxas. has a slight coconut tinge to it. nothing crazy. mouthfeel is full bodied and low carb, very akin to all the abraxas variants. overall, good variant but not enough coconut to call it coconut.
