Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Doesn't have a bourbon flavor the comes out and punches you in the face. More like a subtle bourbon caress that holds you like a gentle lover. Not like that whore, KBS! Really liked this beer though. From the cork, to the cool art, and the overall flavor of the beer. Everything blends together well and you get a little sweetness the comes at you at the end.

P.S. I'll always love you, KBS.

I have no reservations about giving this a straight up 5. If this isn't a 5, they don't exist. First, it has that stunning black void appearance, donning a thin, deeply reddish brown head. The aroma bellows from my Garre glass. Bourbon filled dark chocolate truffle. This might be the best thing I've ever smelled. The bourbon barrel so beautifully transforms the Serpent Stout base blending the coffee, vanilla beans and cocoa nibs seamlessly. The barrel aging is almost like a shot dropped into the stout, cutting through the sweet syrup with a punch. It feels like elixir. Damn I love this brewery.

Pitch black with a hint of ruby, no head but just a rusty coloured foam.

Smells of vanilla, bourbon barrel, black liquorice, umami soy sauce, a slight smokey quality like clothes after visiting a camp fire, brown sugar, and molasses.

Tastes of vanilla, liquorice all sorts, icing sugar, brown sugar, umami, and a hint of bourbon barrel.

Thick, oily body with a little carbonation.

Got this stopping at a liquor discount store off the road near Rochester, NY, drinking in Muskoka, Canada Feb 13th, 2018. Smooth, rich, flavourful, and complex.

Thick, deep brown from an aggressive pour. The film lingers and coats the glass like a thick, chocolate milkshake. Aroma is that of a coffee milkshake as well, if it was aged on bourbon. The bourbon comes through a bit more on the taste than the nose, but it is well-balanced.
Great beer, though the only other one I've had from the series, Track #8, stood out more.
