Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

For the past two years The Lost Abbey has released a winter barrel aged blended strong ale. This amazing blend of beer has focused on a marriage between Bourbon Barrel Aged Serpents Stout and Brandy Barrel Aged Angel’s Share. We believe it’s one of the most amazing barrel releases we do each fall.

But in the spirit of old recordings and records I started thinking what would happen if we played this one in reverse? Would we hear the Demon himself on the record? So with that, we flipped the blend on its ears and spun it backwards. The result is a blend of Brandy Barrel Aged Serpent’s Stout and some Bourbon Barrel Aged Angel’s Share.

It’s still an epic struggle between good and evil, only this time we slowed it down and played it in reverse.

look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Mostly flat and very dark, but just shy of black. Leggy and viscous.

Smell - Lots of brandy and bourbon. Toffee and caramel. Dark roasted malts. Boozy.

Taste - Strong brandy and vanilla. Chocolate comes behind it. The finish is boozy with a nice blend of sweet dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel - Very boozy. The body drops off a bit. Low carbonation.

Overall - Barrel aged sugar bomb. Very tasty.
