Abraxas 2015

Pitch black with a deep brown tinge, no carbonation, half finger of chocolate brown head, and foamy chocolatey legs.

Cocoa, dark chocolate, cinnamon, a hint of heat and dark toasted notes.

Chocolate, cinnamon, coffee, dark chocolate, toasted notes, a light cinnamon, and chilie pepper note. The spicy heat on the end is light. Chocolate and cocoa resonate on the tongue. For a very long time. Hints of cedar all through as it warms.

Medium oily body but very smooth, foamy carbonation. Slick and smooth.

Got at Rincon Tap Room and Bottle
Shop in Sonoma County, Santa Rosa California. Excellent brew that has good reason for being so well sought after. Drank Sept 15th 2016 at the taproom.

On tap at CBC 2016 - day 2. Tons of cinnamon up front, followed by cocoa, milk chocolate, molasses and chili peppers. One of my favourite beers at this year’s CBC.
