Awful! Last years Abraxas was great, but this year's bottle was terrible. No carbonation what so ever, waaaaay to spicy, overly bitter, and just complete crap in evey way. It taste like they threw a bunch of random shit into a brew kettle without measuring and didn't give it any care throughout the brewing process. I want my $20 back.

ughh... can't believe this beer is rated this high.

Spice is too over powering and nasty.... to me it tastes very artificial (although probably not).

We had KBS, Grey Monday, and then this... even in this order this beer/spice was so... obnoxiously fragrant and overpowering, our tasting group couldn't finish this bottle.

Aroma is close to mint. Throws the whole experience off. Nice chili flavor.

Pure cinnamon bomb. If you like cinnamon go for it, but if you want anything other than a smooth stout with an arse load of cinnamon steer clear.

Poured well, smelled OK, but nothing (not even the chilies) made it through the cinnamon. Harsh finish with a touch of what felt like fusel alcohol. Feel was good, but then you remembered how overpowering the cinnamon was and gagged anyway...

Had this on 2 separate occasions, and age does tame it down a bit, but Huna and Prairie Bomb achieve significantly better balance of flavors

When we poured this it looked like motor oil. Cinnamon and pepper hide the rather mediocre stout that is base for this beer. The sweetness is over the top. Finish is the redeeming part of this beer. Love the pepper finish.

Initial chocolate up front. A very, very quick hit of cinnamon follows almost simultaneously. The cinnamon is actually perhaps a bit overdone. I love spice and have never said that, but I think I'd appreciate a richer chocolate and malt like their mint beer. That was very well done. Anyways, cinnamon overwhelms this beer. On top of the malt base being less than expected, the mouthfeel is also a bit thin for all the spice. I would buy this on occasion at $10 A bomber. For $24 this is disappointing.
