Pours black. The Serpents Stout really takes this over in the appearance. Poured a thin medium brown head, stuck around though.

Oak, bourbon, dark fruits, chocolate, roast/char, dark sweet caramel malts, vanilla.

Bourbon and oak up front, the brandy adds some fruity, boozy notes. Charred toffee, chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla. The Serpent plays the biggest role here, and having had it before and knowing it's epicness, I'm totally cool here. This is great!

It's thick, full, smooth and creamy.

Like the BA Serpents, this is fantastic.

Been anxiously waiting for some special occasion to open this one. I guess Monday night is special enough. Poured from 375ml to tulip:

Pours an inky black with a half finger of light mocha head. Stubborn lacing and sultry legs.

The nose is stuffed with smooth bourbon and spicy wood. Malted caramel and toffee, warming booze and licorice. Some cherry notes as well.

Hot damn. Delicious. All the expected players make an appearance with the addition of some tart, earthy woods. Very nice. The booze is nicely incorporated.

The feel is what I was concerned about. I had heard from countless people that Lost Abbey beers are notoriously flat. This is far from flat. Velvety smooth, beautiful.

Overall, I desperately wish we could get Lost Abbey here in the north woods. If their other beers are even half as good as this, I would be their biggest customer. WANT.
