This so far is my most favorite beer to date (even liked more than Bells Black Note and Founders KBS)... I've been told that just about any beer from Lost Abbey is amazing and this one definitely didn't disappoint. I was at the San Diego, CA Stone Liberty station bistro/beer garden and they had this by the bottle, maybe 2-3 left I was told and glad to have opportunity to try it.

Found last one on a shelf at Bin Ends in Braintree MA. I have been looking for this one for awhile and it didn't disappoint. The aroma is of brandy, bourbon and vanilla and taste mirrors that. It is black with no head and very little carbonation.This beer in my opinion was absolutely perfect in every way, I seriously loved this one and so glad I finally found it.

Poured into a wine glass on 05.19.14.

A: Midnight black with no red in the glass. No head, only a tan ring at the top.

S: Strong vanilla, brandy, bourbon, wood barrel. Amazingly complex!

T: Vanilla, dark cherry, plum dominate. Oak barrel, milk chocolate, raisin are subtle.

M: SIlky smooth. It's like velvet. Somewhat chewy.

O: This is a beer for a special event. To say that it is complex does not do it justice. I got a wash after wash of flavor. It was very difficult to pick apart. I didn't think that the blend of Serpent's Stout and Angel's Share would work, but oh man it does.

Rating: A+
