Craytonic popped this to get the wild taste of De Cam Gueze outta our mouths... thanks!

375ml bottle.

A. Very dark brown black into the glass. A dense, fat head is eventually spotty. Looks heavy... like Older Viscosity...

S. Hmm.. hefty booze up front, but lots of barrel too (Angel's Share...), vanilla, buttery barrel notes, a good amount of depth here; coffee, peanuts, cocoa, etc. In the nose, the Angel's Share wins out over the Serpent's Stout, but both are better for the other.

T. Now we're talking! Big and sweet - think Bourbon County - but smoother than it should be. You know this is boozy but it never seems to be bracing; the complex, slightly vinous and nutty barrel notes wrap themselves up tight against the sweet, rich brownie-batter grain-juice and stay there the whole time. The rush of coffee-bitter roast here helps immensely and keeps Deliverance from becoming too lush and sugary. There's a chocolate fudge flavor too, and as the beer warms, a little sour red grape. Excellent, complex, and fun.

M / D. Slick, heavy, warm, complex, low carbonation BUT it is adequate and as much as I dislike Tomme and his flat beers, this isn't one of them.

Frankly, Deliverance is one of the best beers I've had from Lost Abbey in a few years, Isabelle not withstanding. This small bottle is perfect for splitting with a good buddy on a cold night, and I hope this gets made again.
