Awesome. I just said in my last review that when a -bal aged beer comes out, I am often the first one on the scene. This is no exception. The call of the -bal sang to me like an angel on high, and I heeded it. "Get thee to Toronado," the voice said, "and thou shalt partake in -bal aged awesomeness that no one has yet experienced. They also have Veritas 007 on tap." So after I finished watching Peyton Manning get handed a spanking in the Super Bowl, I headed over for Lost Abbey night.

Pours jet black with a nice well-retained tan head and good lacing.

Aroma is awesome and intense: bourbon, roast, smoke, oak, and a little chocolate.

Flavor is also great even though it's a bit hot. Bourbon, roast, and coffee stand out, along with dark chocolate, oak, and even some dark fruits.

Really full on the palate with slight booziness and low carbonation.

Drinkability is good for a bourbon -bal aged stout. Overall a really excellent beer. You heard it here first!
