Draft at Brouwers Big Wood IV under Lost Abbey Barrel Fermented Serpent’s Stout.
Poured very dark chocolate brown with a black hue and a dark tan creamy thick head. The nose was awesome; lots of delicious bourbon, charred oak, vanilla, Swiss almonds, dark bitter chocolate, roasted malt, toffee, burnt caramel, and mild hops. Taste was an amazing blend of luscious bourbon, vanilla, toffee, dark chocolate, light bitter hops, charred oak, burnt coffee, and roasted malt. The sweetness of the bourbon was light and mixed in with the dark malt and roasted flavors to create a truly harmonious drink. The mouthfeel was velvety and creamy, coating the entire mouth. Epic beer.

Appearance: Pours a midnight brown with a rich, creamy tan head.nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Aroma: Chocolate, roasted malt and a slight hint of booze.
Taste: Burnt roast, vanilla, chocolate and hot spice.
Mouthfeel: Warmth, creamy with low carbonation.
Overall: A hell of a beer, not much different from regular Serpent’s Stout, just maybe a hair spicier.
Dark black pour from the tap. Rich roasted malt notes on the nose. Creamy smooth and rich on your palate. The barrel aging adds a layer of pleasant complexity to this beer . More pronounced chocolate , vanilla, coffee flavors but not in an overpowering way. Alcohol in the background. Excellent.
