Perennial Vanilla Abraxas

What the brewers say

“Abraxas has always had vanilla in the mix, but our vanilla variant has an even bigger punch of rich Madagascar vanilla beans.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Cinnamon and cayenne dance above an intense roasted quality. A touch of vanilla beneath the huge cinnamon character along with roast, chocolate, and clove.”

Flavor: “Spicy cinnamon up front with moderate chocolate and roast toward the end of the taste. Light clove spiciness as it starts to warm.”

Overall: “Rich and complex and still well balanced. The spice additions are really well done. None of the individual ingredients stands out in particular, but all contribute to the overall impression of a nice cup of Mexican hot chocolate. The finish is creamy, has good warmth, but isn’t overly boozy. Yum.”
