A thick brown head. Deep brown color, cant tell what the opacity is like due to how dark it is.

Charcoal, smoke, burnt ham, asphalt all on the nose.faint notes of dark fruits, figs, raisins and chocolate.

Definitely some decadent chocolate cake notes right off the bat. Carbonation is brisk for such a giant beer which helps break up the flavors a bit. Rich chocolate flavors. Some savory, smokey, almost bourbon like notes are replicated by this brew. Faintly tannic presence with a touch of alcohol heat that lingers on the lips but not as much as youd expect from an 11% brew. As the beer warms raisins and fig flavors come through but rich chocolate lingers on the palate. A pretty nice brew that begs for food and drinks much smoother than you'd expect.

Also getting some raspberry notes, a deep brew that seems simple on the surface.

Great beer by the way.

First time trying anything from the lost abbey and I was blown away.

Great appearance black and thick rich looking.

Aroma, there was something that I couldn't place my finger on in the beer, lots of roasted grains and malt, but something that I couldn't put my finger on.

Taste, great FULL bodied beer full of heavily roasted good grains, along with rich malt that made this a very filling beer, (which is what I like).

Mouthfeel, pretty good smooth and little cutting on the tongue.

Overall a great tasting beer in the stout realm. The most interesting thing was the pattern left with the last glass of beer. It embodied a snake which was very interesting, couldn't figure out if it was left over after barrel yeast and grains but it was tasty. Floated to the top of the glass and was a little syrupy but very tasty.
