On tap at Lost Abbey Barrel Night 2010. Listed as Older Tea at the event. Pours pitch black with a creamy brown head. The nose is chocolate, coconut, vanilla and roasted nuts. The taste is fudge brownie, vanilla, sweet bourbon and coconut. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Damn good beer - my favorite of the night. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 24, 2010
A: The pour is dark and viscous, just like Viscosity is, with a finger’s worth of tan head.
S: Sweet milk chocolate and bourbon? fill the nose right away. Plenty of sweet vanilla, and a toasted coconut character as well. The tea provides a touch of an herbal note as well as some bananas.
T: The flavor is reminiscent of chocolate covered bananas. There’s a mild roastiness, but plenty of chocolate, alcohol, vanilla, and coconut.
M: The body is medium to full with a smooth, medium carbonation.
D: Probably my favorite all around beer of the barrel night. Easy to drink and the tea actually complimented the flavors of Old Viscosity very well. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 14, 2010
On tap at the Lost Abbey Barrel tasting. I loved this one. The aroma is mind bending for a beer. Black pour with a lasting tan head. Aromas of alcohol, brown sugar, piña colada, coconut, rich chocolate. Completely insane aroma. Flavors of tea, chocolate, coconut (which also seems to add a slight barrel note, but I don’t think this was barrel aged at all), some brown sugar as well. Nice and creamy carbonation. Amazingly ridiculous beer! nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Dark brown black beer. Mouthfeel quite a bit thinner than the standard OV. Roasted malt ,coffee with a good punch of coconut. Was not too psyched on the coconut flavor which tasted kind of artificial. The green tea was not a good enhancement. The original OV way way better.

Dark brown pour, light tan head. Chocolate, caramel, coconut, and banana. Sweet beer, with the flavors reminiscent of a chocolate covered banana, with some coconut sprinkled on the top. Nice desert beer.
