PhillyCraft (3437) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle at Churchills. Poured a pitch black body with wery tiny beige head and sporadic lacing if any. Aromas of the purest cocoa, rich bourbon(jack daniels barrels), vanilla bean, hefty amount of toasted coconut, and caramel. Taste reminds me so much of bourbon angels and older visc. Notes of oak, chocolate, whiskey, sweet caramel, roasted malts from the Serpents in it, black cherry even when it warms up a bit. Soft as silk mouthfeel. Warming and delicious. Thanks Tony.

THX!!! to fux. 2013 Vintage. Pours an oily black with only some mocha bubbles on the side as a head. Nose is incredible, thick vanilla cake, brownies, chocolate chip cookies & cake, bourbon. Tastes like brownies, chocolate cake soaped in whiskey and rum, vanilla, very sweet, rum cake, palm sugar, melted milk chocolate, warming bourbon finish. Low carbonation, very oily. This is amazing, believe the hype.

1st entry I guess. BA Serpents 5050 blend with Older Viscosity, 50 cases, 12 bottles per case, 22oz gold wax dipped bombers. Churchillís label, notes bottled and brewed by port brewing co. Really is 50 50 ba serpents and older visc tasting blend. has the broad, chocolate, smooth and nice texture of serpents with the extra boozieness, with the dark rich, thick, roasted herb and oak older viscosity. Drinking great from the start, the 5 gallon keg at churchills at the release was very similar in every way to the bottled version with nice carbonation. Drinks well now, not sure this needs or would improve with extended bottle aging. At $25 per bottle, 2 bottle limit if you got a ticket, itís expensive, but rare and delicious and would stand out with many other ba imp stouts.

ryanfolty (1900) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2014
March 24, 2014 - bottle at Churchill. Black pour with almost no head. Aroma was sweet, chocolate, wood and bourbon. Taste was consistent with the aroma. Some initial heat that moves quickly to the sweet chocolate and then finishes with woody alcohol. Super smooth going down and medium to full body. 2014 vintage.

Rusty (1537) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Non Infected Bottle shared by the uber generous Wavers1 at Dakís house of beer porn on the day of July 29 2010. Pours a nice deep brownish black with a brown head. Aroma is vanilla oak, bourbon, chocolate. Ther beer is creamy and smooth vanilla, oak, tannins, bourbon, chocolate, mouthfeel is slick chocolate and cream and the alcohol is very subdued. This stuff is awesome, one of the best barrel aged stouts iíve ever had if not the best.

HopMasterFlex (108) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 6, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2011 Pours a very dark brown with a small cream color head. Smells of oak, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts, and whiskey. Taste is oak, whiskey, and a fair amount of chocolate and malt. This was the best beer I have drank this year and I live it. So glad I was able to score a few bottles of it!

48FanInCali (747) - California, USA - MAY 28, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2012 2011 Poured from a 22 to cap off Beerfest 3.0. Nose is bourbon, vanilla and sweet chocolate. Taste follows the nose with a very smooth bourbon, vanilla, malty greatness. This one is special. Updated for 2012 release. Similar notes but sharper vanilla and bourbon notes. Even better than 2011.
