375ml bottle into a snifter

A: Very dark brown, pretty much black with a finger of lively head that sticks around for a while.

S: Strong bourbon up front with dark chocolate, roast, and toffee. Very nice, but lacking a bit in complexity.

T: Dark chocolate and toffee up front with brandy in the background. A bit on the dry side and quite boozy.

M: A tad thin with adequate and fairly creamy carbonation. Could be more full bodied.

O: Rarely do I feel like a beer needs to be aged, but this beer is very boozy and I believe it could develop some with age. Still decent, but I think I'll lay a couple of these down for a while.

Pours a reddish brown with no head at all.
Smells sweet and a touch fruity. Great aroma. You can get the bourbon as well as brandy. Sweet, rich, chocolatey. Love it!
Tastes similar but not that great. I'm enjoying it but it's not a combinatio of flavours that thrills me. Carbonation level is good. Overall interspersing and enjoyable but not thrilling

2013 vintage. Poured from a 12.7 oz cork n caged bottle into a Half Acre snifter.

A- pours near black with a half finger mocha head. Small bubbles of lacing cling to the glass.

S- big port aromas, oak, some barrel notes, dark fruits, light chocolate and roast

T- bitter bakers chocolate, oak, dark fruits, tawny notes, barrel but not really brandy or bourbon just liquor notes, more port or vinous notes at the finish.

M- full body and low carbonation. Fairly mild, light feel with some abv that is noticeable and dry finish.

O- very interesting beer. Brandy angel's share and serpents stout blend lends more oak and port notes than brandy or stout.

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.

Poured a black color with an average creamy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Heavy toasted chocolate malt, caramel, dark fruit and alcohol aroma. Heavy bittersweet toasted dark chocolte malt flavor with a heavy bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a top 50 standout beer.
