2017 vintage

Was really excited to try this, since it’s so highly rated and I rarely see it on shelves in the Seattle area. My overall impression was that it is very similar to Stone Xocoveza, but for $25/750 ml. Abraxas is a very tasty, cinnamon-forward beer. But next time I’ll stick with Xocoveza for $15-$18/6 pack.

2017 vintage.

Pours thick as motor oil. Smells sweet, a little spicy. Tastes awesome. Cinnamon, chili powder, some alcohol heat, thick residual sweetness in the finish. Really tasty beer, glad i popped it now, don't see this aging and getting better. Vibrant flavours, drink up.

Bottled 11/07/17

Beautiful looking beer that is black with a large mocha colored head that settles to a thick cap. Aroma of cinnamon, cocoa, and lightly roasted malt. The cinnamon is the dominate component in the aroma and flavor. Very mild chile flavor and heat to the point that I wonder if I sensed any at all. The cacao adds a nice flavor. The malt also seems to be mildly roasted as there is not much roasted malt qualities besides a faint hint of smoke. Big body with a smooth, luscious texture. I am a bit disappointed in this beer. Seems like a timid attempt at a Mexican chocolate stout.

L - Pours dark chocolate black. Looks a little thick and oily. No head.
S - I get notes of coffee, chocolate, and a little woody or medicinal.
T - Tons of flavor! Dark chocolate espresso.
F - Rich and thick. Light on carbonation. Which make it smooth. Dry finish.
O - fantastic coffee stout.
