A - Dark black with a a good sized light tan head

S - Very strong Vanilla and Coconut. It's an amazing smell. Think Southern Tier Creme Brule, but Southern Tier Coconut Vanilla (if they brewed it). A bit like "Aloha Plenty" a home brew by Ken Schmidt with toasted coconut (NOT the the Stone collaboration but the ACTUAL homebrew made by Ken only)

T - Again, extreme amounts of Vanilla and Toasted Coconut. A little roasted dark chocolate maltiness, black tea flavor, mild boozyness (from the Older Vis no doubt), but not overpowering. Very drinkable.

M - Low to, moderately low carbonation, but it doesn't need it. Very smooth.

D - Extremely unique and very yummy. The coconut was almost overpowering, but I liked it.

This was my second favorite TEA of the night. My first favorite would be this beer BLENDED with #2 (carmel apple)

On-tap at Lost Abbey

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.

Thanks to capra12 for this one. 40 minute old hand bottle. Poured into a Lost Abbey snifter. TEA 6 is allegedly older viscosity with coconut tea leaves.

A: Pours black with a single layer of coarse bubbles that dissipates quickly. Lacing is very spotty and spare with no cling.

S: Nose is heavy coconut and cream, chocolate, booze, cocoa, and caramel. Very sweet, enticing, and rich with a sharp alcoholic bite.

T: Opens sweet soy sauce, vanilla, chocolate, booze, and coconut in the back. Caramel adds its own layer towards the middle as this one lingers on the palate. Booze is pushed to the back. End is caramel, sweet soy sauce, maple syrup. and vanilla. Finish is more of the same with a sweet, syrupy aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Pretty hot in the mouth but appreciably oily going down. Finish is messy and aftertaste lingers a long while.

D: A very solid offering from Lost Abbey. The coconut is a nice addition to the Imperial Stout and offers a flavor profile that hasn't really been done before. Well executed. Worth a try if you get the chance!
