Formerly known as "Serpent's Stout - Bourbon Barrel Aged With Cocoa Nibs & Coffee"

A fresh track, Track 10 began as a fresh Serpent’s Stout base aged in bourbon barrels with oodles of coffee and cacao nibs added shortly before packaging.

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 pounds of Ryan Brothers Coffee and 4 pounds of TCHO Cacao Nibs to steep before packaging.

On tap at Strong Ale 2011.

A: Black with a big dark brown head.

S: Earthy, nutty coffee with caramel and dark chocolate. Bourbon blends wonderfully with coffee and cocoa. Malt is strongly roasted with a slight burnt note. Oak is pronounced and vanilla lingers in the background.

T: Dark chocolate meets earthy black coffee, caramel, and bourbon. The coffee is really strong, but it doesn't overwhelm the barrel notes. There's a nutty note with oak and a little vanilla. I get a light astringency on the back end. Alcohol is well hidden.

M: Full body with upper moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky with a lot of warming.

Overall: Very good. This was probably the best beer at the fest.

Had a bottle of this at Lost Abbey today and the track version is every bit as good as the beer they made last year for Strong Ale. Just a crushing and devastatingly delicious beer.
