4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Enjoyed on tap at FOBAB. Served in my FOBAB taster.
A: Pours a dark black color with a very dark tan head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thick ring that leaves some splotchy lace.
S: Huge notes of fresh coffee bean, chocolate, roasted malts and espresso. There is a faint barrel smell in the background, but this is heavily dominated by the coffee and chocolate.
T: The taste follows the nose with a more roasted malt presence and touch more barrel. Vanilla espresso, freshly ground coffee beans, milk chocolate and roasted malts. Some light oak with just a kiss of bourbon. Booze is hidden extremely well.
M: Medium low carbonation with a heavy mouthfeel. Decadent and creamy.
O: While this beer was lacking the in your face bourbon barrel weíve all come to love I think this limited barrel actually worked with this beer. It made the coffee and cocoa flavors the stars of the show. Iíd love to try this again.
Serving type: on-tap

Draft pour at the beer junction barrel Lost Abbey event. Pours black with a brown head that fades. Big coffee bean aisle in your local grocery store aroma. A ton of coffee here, and I thought I would never say it, but it overpowers. Especially in the finish. Definitely a sipper, these is a big beer. This beer is great for what it is. I could sip this over time, but itís quite intense. Tastes as strong as it is, if not more. I really hope I run into this beer again someday. It might not fit my personal favorites, still itís a special beer. Good stuff.

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, itís like they took serpent stout which is all ready phenomenal and made it better.
