2012 release. Tulip glass.

A: Pours very dark brown, though lighter at the edges, with a cap of beige head. So-so retention and almost no lacing.

S: Fruit (cherry, fig, currant, blueberry) and oak, vanilla, with dark chocolate and malt undertones. More roastiness and brandy come out as it warms.

T: Oak is more in the forefront and fruit takes a backseat, along with some coffee and chocolate, alcohol, and brandy. Some bright acidity, with a coffee and chocolate aftertaste on the lengthy finish. Mostly dry... drier than I would've expected.

M: Full bodied, medium-light carbonation.

O: Really nice complexity and integration, with layers of interesting flavors which change as the beer warms. Although I didn't really detect bourbon. As enjoyable as this was, I think I'd prefer Angel's Share straight up.

375 ml bottle, 2011 vintage, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a dark brown color, produces a thin layer of head that quickly vanishes to nothing, leaves no lacing.

S- Bourbon and brandy notes as well as sweet dark fruit, chocolate, caramel and vanilla.

T- Sweet and boozy but not overly so, has some flavors of bourbon and vanilla, chocolate, caramel and vanilla, the finish has flavors of wood and a bit of vinous fruit.

M- Medium-bodied, slick feel with medium to low carbonation, a bit of boozy warmth.

O- Another solid barrel-aged beer from the Lost Abbey.

I poured from a 12.7 ounce bottle into a snifter. The pour is jet black, thin tan head. The aroma is full of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate. The first sip is hot. After the initial hot alcohol a ton a vanilla, chocolate and sweet bourbon is released. It has a lingering bourbon finish. The body is full, light carbonation. A great beer from LA. The bottle went down very smooth and easily, must try.
