Had this at the Port Brewing release night on tap and liked it, so I picked up a growler at the release of the Bourbon Barrel Angel's Share this morning.
Look is nice, but nothing outstanding for a stout. Barely any head even with a rough pour; a small ring clings to the edges for awhile. Not much in the smell department either - some weak vanilla and malty notes. Taste is better - roasty, bitter chocolate. I feel like some wouldn't like it, but I do. Mouthfeel is excellent - creamy and smooth. I would give this a 5 for drinkability, but the ABV is an understated 10.5%.
Overall, I was actually a little disappointed. This is still a solid stout, but it was my favorite from the tasting night, and doesn't quite live up to my memories. Very sessionable though.

Appearance is thick and black with brown head and nice lace. Aroma starts with nice roast, chocolate, and coffee. Some fruity sweetness comes to the surface from the Belgian yeast. Taste is very well balanced with emphasis on roast and chocolate. Some dark fruits and molasses are present but tame. Mouthfeel is full with moderate carbonation. Overall, very nice.

Had this for the first time on tap at a local restaurant. Appearance in a pint glass was black as coal. Very chocolaty smell and taste. Extremely smooth going down. Very pleasurable taste and mouthfeel. A great sipper any time as I'm a stout lover. First time with any beer from Lost Abbey. Nice job. I would seek this out again if I ever saw it.
