@bfreebern and I did a virtual side by side of Perennial Abraxas. Mine was 59° straight out of the cellar and got even better as it warmed more. Big beer with so much going on flavorwise. I can see why people go crazy trading for it.
As @jfields said above, we both drank a bottle of Abraxas, Friday night and it was great. Mine was a little colder than Johns, but as it warmed, it really opened up.
Lots of cinnamon, chocolate in the middle and peppers on the finish. The peppers reminded me of BOMB!. With most dark/oil like stouts, I expected it to have some pretty serious lacing on the glass, but it was minimal. Nose was like someone took cinnamon and dumped it into the glass. Great beer, now I want to try the BA version.
