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.

Thanks to rudzud for getting these, split with him.

No head, nice legs, pretty much pitch black color.

Nose big strong malts, syrupy sweet chewy dark malts, big fudgey cocoa, caramel candies, some sweet brandy like fruity booze, candy and barrel notes, mild nutty caramel candy like, and little fluffy nougat.

Taste brings sweet malts, syrupy dark strong malts and syrupy candy, toffee and nutty and plenty of caramel, little fluffy nougat, nice fudgey cocoa and dark malts, with vanilla barrel, plenty more fruity brandy. Syrupy candy, mixed everything strong and dark ale. Finish sweet syrupy, light booze, light cocoa, fudgey, candy bar, fruity brandy, toffee, etc.

Mouth is fuller bod, light booze on the back end, no carb though.

Overall really nice, great blend of strong ale and dark ale, nice brandy barrel, booze hidden fairly well, just lack of carbonation that's the only real downfall.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a very dark brown basically black with no head. Then again, it is a huge ABV and from lost abbey.

S - Aromas of raisins, big brandy and bourbon, dark fruits. Alcohol is hidden nicely, nose is full of malty goodness and barrel.

T - Taste is delicious brandy, softer bourbon, light chocolate, bold malts, good sweetness, nice fruits, really complex and really good barrels. Quite tasty with not much alcohol.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, nearly flat, though the alcohol is hidden well.

O - Overall this beer was really good, awesome barrel notes, just not much other than dark fruits and barrel booze. Still, delicious.
