phredrik (999) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2012 Tap @ CBC. Ink black with a nice small brown head. Aroma had lots of wood, bourbon and vanilla, creamy chocolate ganache, dates and figs. Cocoa nibs and vanilla beans, not much coffee presence other than a hint of fruity espresso. Pleasant aroma. Taste is heavy bourbon and dry wood. Lots of chocolate and burnt caramel, some roasted malt notes and coffee. Lovely cocoa nib and chocolate brownie elements, roundes up by a pleasant amount of hop bittetness. Smooth palate, very creamy. Better than the regular Serpent’s Stout because it’s rare dong whale.

maneliquor (2782) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle shared during the Track Set interval of the Brokeback Revisited tasting in London. Cheers Kenny! Geez Meat Loaf... Pours very deep brown with ruby edges and a very tight rim of tan around the sides. Nose is chock full of dark, bitter cocoa, dark chocolate, big espresso, very ashy and spice driven with pepper. In your face bitterness. Taste is balanced bitter-sweet dark chocolate, plenty of fresh pressed coffee, loads of spice. Very bitter on the finish. The coffee is the winner here. Some cinnamon and coconut on the finish. Probably a little too coffee forward for me. Very good nonetheless

Bottle shared at the BIG Friday tasting, massive thanks to our Ken for sharing the entire track set and also to Bruce for providing the accompanying music 03/01/14. This one labelled as "Lost Abbey Track #10 - Bat Out Of Hell. Thanks again to Ken for some old time music history relating to this one. Pitch black with a moderately appointed dirty tan covering that thins to spotting and edgework. Nose is green pepper, mineral tones, booze, earthy cocoa, spice, dark malts, light roast, rich dark chocolate. Taste comprises rich chocolate, light spice, coffee notes, toffee fudge, chocolate cake mix, boozey bourbon twang. Full bodied, fine carbonation, light booze and spice in a drying closure. Nice impy, well balanced, alocohol well integrated.

Mega Tasting at Bruce’s pad. As ’Track #10’. Opaque dark brown beer with a small pale tan head. Palate is softish and semi dry. Fine carbonation. Rich dark chocolate, little coffee. Light bourbon and tangy dark fruits. Coffee becomes earthy before tge semi dry finish. Very nice.

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Black as you can get on the pour, a minimal tan head. The chocolate and coffee really add something to this and take away a bit of the booziness. Lots of whiskey and vanilla notes are still present, however. A touch of dark fruit in the background. The whiskey still cuts through the flavor along with some vanilla. Heavy on the chocolate and coffee with notes of raisin and burnt sugar.
