Been anxiously waiting for some special occasion to open this one. I guess Monday night is special enough. Poured from 375ml to tulip:
Pours an inky black with a half finger of light mocha head. Stubborn lacing and sultry legs.
The nose is stuffed with smooth bourbon and spicy wood. Malted caramel and toffee, warming booze and licorice. Some cherry notes as well.
Hot damn. Delicious. All the expected players make an appearance with the addition of some tart, earthy woods. Very nice. The booze is nicely incorporated.
The feel is what I was concerned about. I had heard from countless people that Lost Abbey beers are notoriously flat. This is far from flat. Velvety smooth, beautiful.
Overall, I desperately wish we could get Lost Abbey here in the north woods. If their other beers are even half as good as this, I would be their biggest customer. WANT.

The beer comes in a dark black color.
The aroma has oak aging, medium amount of bourbon, with a lighter alcohol note, charred cherry wood, a tinge of fruitness.
The flavor follows of with charred wood in the front, lightly roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, and bourbon. It tastes very much like a lighter version of BCBS. Alcohol comes through on the finish to clean off the palate.
A wonderfully delicious barrel aged brew.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter glass.
A - Pours an inky black with a 3/4 of a finger chocolate colored head which evaporated quickly. Small clumps of lacing.
S - Intense aroma of bourbon, vanilla, wood, raisin, ash, anise, and chocolate. Smells amazing.
T - Incredibly rich and complex mix of chocolate, plum, oak, whiskey, vanilla, brandy, smoke, and black licorice. Date, prune and fig flavors come out as it warms. The tinniest hint of black cherry tartness in the mid palate. An soy sauce like element in the finish. (not a bad thing by any means) Woody bitterness and roast provides nice balance, but this is a sweet brew overall. ABV definitely noticeable but not overpowering. A slow sipper.
M - So full bodied, you almost need a knife and fork. Low carbonation. Velvety smooth. Coats the mouth, but manages to avoid being syrupy. Perfect for the style.
O - Complex and amazing. Thankfully, the bourbon flavors do not overpower the base beer. If sweeter strongly alcoholic beers are your thing, don't miss this one. Superb.
