look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance. Pours a thick looking deep dark brown, almost black in the glass. Topped with a thin skim of tan head that quickly fades to a thin ring.

Smell. Very woody bourbon, buttery caramel candy, leather, and some chocolate and vanilla.

Taste. Big bourbon and vanilla, caramel candy, old wood, butterscotch, cocoa powder. Quite sweet, boozy, and very rich.

Mouthfeel. Full body with low carbonation.

Overall. A massive beer with tons of barrel influence. Nice to find an appropriate amount of carbonation (though that should never be a welcomed surprise...).

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours with a medium body and zero head. Pitch black in the glass. This beer has a very menacing and intimidating look, the high ABV would lend toward this look.

Smell: A heavy bourbon front hits right away. Maple syrup and molasses can be detected. Some unique sweetness from the brandy barrels but overall the bourbon is the biggest player in the aroma.

Taste: The lack of carbonation really makes this one drink like a glass of bourbon or cognac. The front hits with a thickness and taste of maple syrup. Molasses and bourbon hit during the body. While many of the flavors make you thing of a stout. the body reminds you that this is a strong ale, does not have the thickness of a stout. Sweetness from the brandy kicks in during the back end of this beer. The high ABV leaves the palette dry.

Mouthfeel: Dry, the lack of carbonation makes this a unique one.

Overall: I've always wanted to try some of the harder to obtain Lost Abbey products and I'm glad paid the high price tag for this one. A unique strong ale that has some very good barrel accents. The body is a little thin and some of the flavor get a little lost.
