4.1/5 rDev -8.3%
On-tap at Strong Ale 2011
Black as you can get on the pour, a minimal tan head. The chocolate and coffee really add something to this and take away a bit of the booziness. Lots of whiskey and vanilla notes are still present, however. A touch of dark fruit in the background. The whiskey still cuts through the flavor along with some vanilla. Heavy on the chocolate and coffee with notes of raisin and burnt sugar.

10 oz. on-tap at Beachwood I,
A: Pours a deep mahogany to black with a medium brown head, spotty lacing.
S: Amazing, smells like the most decadent chocolate cake I've ever had with a splash of Kahlua.
T: Lots of luscious milk chocolate and brown sugar. Definite vanilla and bourbon notes. A smorgasbord of good classic Double Stout flavours. Delicious.
M: Full-bodied, creamy, not a trace of the 12.5%. Soft carbonation and soothing.
O: The epitome of a dessert beer. I'm not the biggest fan of regular Serpent's Stout, but it's well made for sure and certainly shows in this incarnation of the brew. Great job by Lost Abbey.

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.
