Pours into a Town Hall Brewery globe on 6/19/11.

Pours a dark brown with a fizzy brown head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing at all. Swirling the glass leaves a sticky resin on the glass.

Smells of lots of boozy bourbon and dark malts as well as a little fruit and vanilla.

Taste is of bourbon infused dark malts and vanilla/chocolate fruits. Taste is pleasant but the booze is very present.

Mouthfeel is light to moderate in weight. Resin sticks to the mouth and leaves a nice bitter mocha booze flavor left over.

Overall this is a good brew but the alcohol can make it tough to enjoy not only because it smashes out some of the taste but also I can't have more then one 375mL before my senses are dulled by the high ABV. Good beer though.

Grabbed this today at Berman's in Lexington. Very cool artwork of angels and demons fighting over somebody. The color is almost completely black, with just a small amount of lacing as far as the head goes. The nose is of molten chocolate cake, molasses, and naturally brandy and bourbon. Wow, the alcohol is very present in the taste, giving it the feel of a spirit. Very similar to the nose, but there are some underlying fruit notes that makes it all the more interesting. Despite the heat from the alcohol, the mouthfeel is not especially huge, more in the middle I would say. The carbonation is also kept in check well. Like enjoying a spirit neat or on the rocks, this is one to sip slowly, and let develop as it warms to room temperature. Although grossly overpriced, this is another quality brew from Lost Abbey. I would be interested in trying the Bourbon barrel aged Serpent Stout, which is one of the brews (along with Brandy Angel's Share) blended in here. Cheers
