New batch.

Pours with bubbles, hooray for Lost abbey! The head is a much darker brown around the edges than the middle, kind of weird. Black coffee colored with a very oily surface. It's got an impressive amount of lace for such a rotund beer.

The aroma is where it's at here. Madagascar Bourbon vanilla bean is the most notable feature, accompanied by dry oak, chocolate cake, rum and coconut. I want my house to smell like this.

This has that toasted caramel taste that I associate with really good Old Ales. Very well balanced, but on the sweeter side. When I first started drinking this, I thought "oh, easy, it tastes like Serpent Stout. Cool.". Now that it's warmed quite a bit, it's just like Angel's Share. I don't think I could tell which was which if you put them side by side. Unfortunately, the alcohol is too pronounced on the finish.

Mouthfeel is nice and full, a little drying after the jump.

I'd have to drink this next to both Angel's Share and Serpent's Stout to really know which was superior.

On an ANGRIER note, it really pisses me off that Lost Abbey puts a pseudo-intellectual-theological bullshit spiel on the back of their labels. It's a fucking BEER. How about telling me what's in the damn bottle and when it was brewed instead of a lame fairytale? I shouldn't have to do a google search to find out what I'm drinking. Minus 162 cool points.
