Had this side by side with Abraxas and it tasted to me as if the barrel did not leave an imprint but amplified the base beer. Strong chocolate and cinnamon, with an immense amount of coffee and roast. It's as if you are drinking an after dinner coffee with a chocolate, caramel, vanilla and toffee dessert. Light heat from the chile's but it helps to liven the experience.

Let it warm up a bit. It had a little too much of a bite on it till it warmed up a bit. Once warmed, it smoothed out and was very enjoyable.
