Spending the last 18 months developing its rich flavors in bourbon barrels, Barrel-Aged Serpent’s is finally ready to see the light of day. Beginning with a base The Lost Abbey’s Serpent’s Stout, this rich ale only increases in decadence after its tasty hibernation.
“Serpent’s Stout has always been a massive beer and one of the richest we brew” said Tomme Arthur, COO and Co-Founder of The Lost Abbey. “Allowing Serpent’s to sit and develop in bourbon barrels has only increased the depth of this already contemplative beer.”
Beginning with a robust nose of coffee and cocoa, Serpent’s opens up with deep chocolate and oak with hints of vanilla tobacco, ending with slightly sweet figs and a bourbon kick on the finish.
Serpent’s will go on sale Wednesday, September 27th at Noon PDT at shop.lostabbey.com. Bottles will be $30 and limited to 6 per person. Shipping will be available within the state of California if needed. Otherwise pickup will take place the weekend of October 13th at The Lost Abbey Tasting Room in San Marcos.
Founded in 2006, The Lost Abbey produces an extensive line-up of continental and American- inspired ales and lagers. Under the direction of visionary brewmaster and co-founder Tomme Arthur, the brewery has garnered dozens of awards including the 2007 Great American Beer Festival Small Brewery of the Year, The 2008 world Beer Cup Champion Small Brewery and the 2013 Champion Brewery at the San Diego International Beer Festival. The company’s beers, many of which are aged in oak barrels for 12 months or longer, are universally recognized for their complexity, unique flavors and bold boundary-pushing styles.
