look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Dark coffee-black pour with a thin dark khaki head
Smells like brown sugar, cinnamon, chilies, molasses
Coffee chocolate upfront, sweet cinnamon that fades into subtle but present peppered heat -sweet but not cloyingly so
Thick, chewy without seeming like syrup
Overall worth seeking out!

Pours black with hardly any light passing through. Has a dark caramel head on top. Can smell cinnamon as well as something sweet. Taste is full of cinnamon with a hint of spice.

Abraxas 2016, at Side Project Cellar

This is a beautiful imperial Stout, black with a dark head and nice lacing.

Smell is chocolate, roasted malts, cinnamon, Chile.

Taste follows the smell, lots of chocolate and roasted malts, Chile peppers, vanilla, cinnamon. Feel is thick.

Near perfect imperial Stout, the flavors complement each other beautifully. The ABV is well hidden. Simply delicious.

A solid cinnamon, chocolate, chili stout that's pleasant to sip during cold months. Flavors are strong but mesh well. Will definitely be ordering again.

Pours pitch black with thin mocha head.

Aroma is chocolate, cinnamon and pepper

Taste chocolate upfront, cinnamon mud pallet. The pepper comes in late aftertaste . Very similar taste to prairie bomb.

Mouthfeel is super thick . This is what I want in an imperial stout.

Overall- totally worth the hype. Actually exceeds my expectations. Prefer this over bomb and huhnapu due to mouthfeel. Would LOVE to try barrel aged version. Elite beer in every way
