2017 Bottle. Drank in a snifter.

World class beer. Definitely lives up to the hype. Highlight of the beer is how thick it is. It completely coats your entire mouth. Worth seeking out

2017 vintage
750ml bottle poured into a snifter
Taken from notes, Aug 2017

Pours a deep black color with a thin khaki colored head that has short retention before setting to a ring around the edge. Cinnamon leads the way in aroma, followed by undertones of pepper skin, vanilla bean and chocolate. Peppery barrel aroma closes it out and adds some woody oak and a hint of caramel. Cinnamon leads the flavor as well and is immediately complimented by some peppery rye notes form the barrel that seems to enhance the cinnamon. Mid-palate brings out some sweet notes of cocoa & vanilla bean. The finish brings out just a hint of pepper heat, that is immediately followed by light notes of peppery rye, woody oak and a hint of caramel sweetness on the linger. Medium body with moderate carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel and warming finish. Take an already outstanding beer and age it in rye barrels, it's delicious

Legit smells like cinnamon toast crunch w/ cacao, whiskey, light pepper; tons of cinnamon, barrel, big malts, nilla, lasting whiskey. What a luxurious mouthfeel; bitter, big whiskey finish w/ notes of cinnamon, cacao, and light spiciness; wowzers, love this beer, again.

It just doesn't get much better than this. All the robust flavors of the base Abraxas plus the additional barrel vanilla and wood notes. Exceptionally well balanced. Simply Amazing!
