On tap, brewery. Pours deep dark chocolate, thick, small tan head. Aroma has huge lush bourbon, roasts, light chocolate. Mouthfeel is so creamy, mouth coating, lightly carbonated. Flavor is a blast of flavor, starting with vanilla, toasted wood, molasses, dark chocolate, roasted almond. This is amazing. Finishes with a burst of chocolate and warmth. The depth and power of this beer is fantastic. Even better than regular Serpent’s Stout, mainly for its decadence.

Lost Abbey Barrel Night. Deep brown pour, nice brown head. We sampled 2 barrels that night. One was mellow and fudgy the other was a hot and awesome bourbon bomb! Rich flavors of vanilla, cocoa, espresso, roast, bourbon, oak shined in both and when we blended them...oh hell!

4 oz Sample courtesy of Bill, Thanks again man for busting out this rare brewsker. Poured a dark brown, with lighter head. Aromas of fudge, bourbon, vanilla bean, dark fruit, and roasted grain. Taste was around the same with further small notes of tobacco, fig, and cofee. Mouthfeel was very sticky. Overall a great beer. Very warming.

On tap at Toronado for Lost Abbey night. Rating this from the bar, with Tomme right here, because I’m way too obsessed with beer, frankly, and get some bizarre satisfaction from being first. Pours jet black with a nice well-retained tan head and good lacing. Aroma is awesome and intense: bourbon, roast, smoke, oak, and a little chocolate. Flavor is also great even though it’s a bit hot. Bourbon, roast, and coffee stand out, along with dark chocolate, oak, and even some dark fruits. Really full on the palate with slight booziness and low carbonation. Overall a really excellent beer. You heard it here first!

Thanks to Paul for getting me to this! Poured oily black with just a loose ring of dark tan head sticking around. The aroma picked up sweeter and a tad tangy bourbon over brewer’s licorice, baker’s chocolate, and molasses.. the barrel was well integrated with the base beer, and I enjoyed the kick it had on the back of the nose. The flavor opened syrupy with maple and molasses leading.. peppery alcohol, bourbon, and a hint of rye surrounded.. sticky-sweet across the middle.. finished warm, tangy, and near perfectly balanced.. this was delicious! Heavier-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. quite roasty.. the barrel did very good things with this one, and I’d love to try it again.

On draft at 4th anniversary party. Oily pitch black pour, small tan head. Dark chocolate, with some sweet milk chocolate as well, raisins, roasted dark malt, bourbon oak, and warming alcohol. This beer is very big, Personally I love it, but wouldnt want to drink much.

On tap at Beer Revolution. It pours jet black with a creamy tan head. The aroma is very strong with bourbon, burned wood barrel and fudge. The flavor is very alcoholic with lots of wood and chocolate. Theres a hint of dark fruit in a very hot finish. This almost tasted a little young for me, but it was still a extremely well made BB stout.

(Bottle) Pours near black with almost no head. The aroma holds smooth barrel – vanilla and wood alongside creamy chocolate, light spicy yeast, dark fruits, brown sugar, light tobacco and tiny hoppy. Well-balanced and complex nose. The flavour is near medium sweet, light to medium bitter and light acidic. Tones of bourbon, chocolate roast, light dark fruits and tiny spicy alongside a whisper of herbal/grassy hops. The mouthfeel is round, silky, oily and fat with almost no carbonation. Hops, wood and chocolate on the finish. Medium to full bodied. Really nice!
