What the brewers say

“Began as a Serpent’s Stout base aged in bourbon barrels with coffee and cacao nibs added before packaging.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate coffee notes with a slight smoke note and medium chocolate. Medium alcohol notes. Medium oak with a light cherry note. Light vanilla, moderate licorice. Smooth blend of dark roast and peppery phenolic. Light tobacco accents the light amount of roast malt. As it warms, a bit more roasty chocolate and alcohol.”

Flavor: “Strong coffee and chocolate, but also some nice malt complexity (caramel, toffee, dark fruit, and roast). Light nutty notes, medium body, touch of licorice, and moderate sweetness. Medium-high alcohol heat dries out the sweetness. Coffee blends well with the alcohol and fruity oak-barrel notes.”

Overall: “Fun coffee-dominated imperial stout. Supporting notes of caramel, licorice, cherry, and other fruits, with a light bitterness. The alcohol notes are just enough to accentuate the big nature of the beer. Good balance of chocolate, roast, high coffee, and an alcohol warming in the background.”
