Staffan47 (802) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2013
"Bat out of hell" från Lost Abbey boxen, (som tydligen var alias med denna). Aska kaffesump och nyskuren chili. Intensiva smaker av kaffe som hänger i. Viss beska mot slutet. Lite småvass. Bourbon kan anas.

SlackerMads (1238) - DENMARK - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle at Theis. Pitch black with a small dark brown head. Lots of coffee in the nose, cocoa, lots of coffee, light acidic, burnt malts. Medium/full body, oily texture, near flat carbonation. Medium/heavy sweet and bitter.

b3shine (4402) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle to taster at FoBAB. Looks good; a dull, dark brownish black with beige lacing. Smells of dark malt and the barrel treatment with some pepper spiciness. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not sure where the pepper notes came from, but they were definitely there to me.

phaleslu (5863) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Sample from a bottle at FOBAB 2013. Pours a deep, dark, opaque brown with a sizeable brown ring for a head. Very, very rich- roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, cacao nibs, vanilla, burnt brown sugar, toasted oak, fudge, and molasses. Full-bodied, with a smooth, rich, coating mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Very good take on Serpent’s Stout, which I love. So I wouldn’t call it an improvement but it’s also no worse. Beat the hell out of Track 13 next to it.

SrSilligoose (3117) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottled offering at fobab. Strong preference for regular serpants stout. This was much sweeter. Not liking vanilla addition. Okay in small doses. But too much sugar sweet doughy vanilla offered. Would have preferred more dark chocolate roasty bitterness. Good if you like sweet vanilla stouts. Perhaps. bit too sweet otherwise.

rxeight (1041) - Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle to sampler at Fobab. Shit man this was the best of the night. Coffee and chocolate. Touch of bourbon. Everything perfectly balanced. Thid is great stuff, really wish they made more.

HonkeyBra (3108) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Bottled. Dark, rich pour with a nice tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, coffee, lots of chocolate and oak notes. Some booze elements, very apparent oak and wood notes. Flavor is chocolate focused, with bourbon waiting in the wings. Some bitter wood and coffee notes are present, as well as a warming booziness. Slick, oily bodied with lower than average carbonation. Finishes chocolatey and boozy.
