COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Late in November of 2011, Mike Rodriguez our head brewer asked about creating a Coffee and Cacoa Nib version of Serpent’s Stout for the San Diego Strong Ale Festival. The beer was a hit with our fans. When we wrote up the syllabus for the Ultimate Box Set, we knew a version of this beer would be included. We waited until the very end of the release schedule to put this beer in a bottle so that the coffee and cacoa nibs really come through. Four Bourbon barrels were selected for their rich and dense chocolate flavors. One week before packaging, we added 17 lbs of Ryan Brothers Coffee and 4 lbs of TCHO Cacao Nibs were added to the coffee and cacao to steep before packaging.

Pours utterly, completely black with a nice, creamy, beige head. Aroma has vanilla, cocoa, coffee, light roasted, mild vinious. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is really nice, nuts, chocolate, mild coffee, soft vanilla sweetness. Oak dryness. Very sweet, but maintains a very good balance with roasted malts and oakiness. Light warming vinious. Really well-balanced.
