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: 2.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Track #6. 12.7oz bottle. No date.

Look: Ink black, opaque, no head, but plenty of legs

Smell: Brandy soaked chocolate cake, raisins, char, alcohol

Taste: Viscous, creamy, sweet, boozy, brandy, port, peppery, chocolate, black treacle, cookie dough, roasty, charred raisins, mild oxidation, lingering molasses sweetness

This is one hell of a deliciously evil nightcap. Robust, boozy, flavorful and moreish.

4.11/5  rDev -7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12.7 brown caged and corked bottle, no freshness date.

Black, opaque and no head. Has legs. Brandy, burnt sugar, figgy, lots of wood, spice, cocoa, and faint citrus peel in the nose. Fullish body, creamy, oaky, brandy, creamy sherry, peppery alcohol, very warming, boozy, burnt raisins, slightly viscous, woody slowly drying finish.

By far the best out of the bunch within the first six tracks. Not for its size obviously but for the execution of putting this brew together.

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.
