2018 vintage. Released a month or two ago. The cap seems to be leaking very slightly.

A: Pours thick and black with a ring of thick, dark brown espresso-like head. Some dots of lacing and pretty good retention.

S: Cinnamon, rich coffee and dark chocolate, and a bit of vanilla (esp. as it warms).

T: Darkish roast coffee dominates the palate; it’s really delicious but covers most of the other flavors. There’s some dark roasted malt, slight burnt note, a bit of cinnamon (less noticeable than on the aroma), boozy vanilla bean, and chili heat. Very mild sweetness.

M: Full bodied, medium-light carbonation. Decent amount of alcohol warmth and a tinge of burn.

O: Like all the Abraxas variants, this is good but basically tastes like the base beer. Maybe slightly better. The coffee is the star.
