Viscous pitch black pour with mocha head. Yes. An LA BA Stout with head. Nose of dark roasted coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and booze. Taste follows the nose with some nice coffee bitterness with plenty of sweetness to balance it out. Chocolate is there for sure as well. Thick and oily on the palate as I would hope for and expect. Very well done.

Bottle gift from SJ. This brew has a lot going on, but it is awesome. Notes of cacao, burnt / roasted malts, wood, a rich and dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and brown sugar. The blend is amazing, it’s like they took serpent stout which is all ready phenomenal and made it better.
