4.14/5  rDev -3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Ink black color with one finger of tan head that did not last very long before settling to a thin cap. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left on the glass.

Aroma of bourbon and vanilla. Hints of dark fruit and chocolate. Some alcohol as well.

Very hot and boozy. Complex flavor that is blended quite well. Hints of bourbon, vanilla, and dark fruit. Brandy sweetness. The malt gives off some roasted and smokey flavor. If it was not so boozy I would rate the taste higher.

Thick, chewy, and rich body. Carbonation is well done for this type of beer.

A very interesting complex beer.

A - Black beer that foamed up a small brown head that quickly dissipated and only left some spots on the side during the drink.

S - This is a little bit on the boozy side with some oak and dark fruit. Smells a little too bourbony for my liking, but okay.

T - Taste is surprisingly really good, somehow the combination of two pretty good beers makes one really great beer. Great vanilla with mild oak, nice bourbon sweetened by brandy, some dark fruit, really great mixture of beers that goes down easy and hides the alcohol.

M - Full bodied and smooth, low carbonation, but not flat.

D - Highly drinkable for 12.5%, great stuff, would love to drink again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I don't see any dates on this one but I would estimate around 2 years old.

A: Cork comes off with just the lightest, faintest hiss. Pours a dark brown, oddly not as pitch black as I was expecting. Tiniest little fizzy head despite the most aggressive pour I could possible give it. Fades quickly. Essentially zero lacing.

S: Lots and lots of sweet dark fruits. Smells a lot like brandy and bourbon (duh). Loaded with sickly sweet caramel, toffee, molasses, raisins and vanilla. Not much roasted malt pokes through, maybe a hint of chocolate. Big and boozy.

T: Stinging bourbon and brandy. Lots of it. Up front there's lots of dark fruit, toffee and caramel. Turns into chocolate and vanilla in the middle, becoming very very oaky in the finish. A little char mixes in with the oak and then it's more burning brandy. Finishes dry and hot.

M: Thick and heavy. Being almost completely flat contributes to this effect.

O: It's not bad, the stout character is mostly swallowed up by all the brandy and bourbon. Surprising, especially given the decent age on this one. Might have to age one for maybe 5 years and see how it turns out. Too hot, too much spirits, not enough stout at this stage.

375ml bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours an extremely dark chocolate brown that looks pretty much black in the glass with a thick film of mocha head along the top that recedes to a solid collar and leaves no lacing, just some sticky legs.

Aroma is huge with bourbon and vanilla to start with an underlying sweet chocolate and dark fruit backbone. There is also some leather, tobacco, spent coffee grounds and brandy in the nose and an alcohol burn to finish things off.

Taste also starts with the bourbon but that's just an opener for the big sweet chocolate and caramel malt backbone with vanilla, raisins and plums. Maybe some coffee but the finish is really about the brandy and alcohol burn with a hint of dry oak.

The mouthfeel is exceptionally smooth with soft carbonation and on the fuller side of things in the body. Very dessert-like feel.

This is an outstanding beer and if they would consistently nail this types of beers, I'd still be in the Sinner's Club. If they keep it up, maybe I'll jump back in...

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter. Thanks to PretzelCity for this.

3.5 A: Black color. One finger of creamy light brown head that has average retention given the ABV and leaves no lacing.

5.0 S: I personally didn't care much for regular Serpent's and I'm not a huge fan of any brandy barrel beer, but this combination is exquisite. The bourbon is a lot stronger than the brandy and the resulting intensity from each blends together almost perfectly. Anyway, the bourbon in this is smooth with a low booziness. Flavors include a good bit of leather, toastiness, a slight touch of peat, and subtle fruitiness. The brandy adds a nice vinous component. The barrels add a good bit of vanilla and oak. The underlying stouts lend a surprisingly soft roastiness with plenty of sweet caramel and molasses. A light sugariness with dark fruits and emphasis on plum and raisin. Very, very nice.

4.5 T: I don't know what this was like fresh, but at this point it's quite smooth and the booze is well in check. Bourbon and brandy again work very well together. I've had a few other bourbon + brandy beers and none of them have worked together at all, let alone as well as they do in this brew. Leathery bourbon with touches of peat and char. Woody, vinous brandy. Again good vanilla and oak. The base beers play second fiddle to the barrel treatments, but this is so good that I don't care (I usually do). Lots of caramel, molasses, and some brown sugar. Plum, raisin, prune, and tobacco fruitiness.

4.0 M: Medium to perhaps heavier medium body. Carbonation is a bit lower that what is typical for the style, but it works just as well. The problem is that this is missing the rich, velvety creaminess that I come to expect from beers of this nature. Very smooth though.

4.5 D: Best LA beer I've had. I didn't think I'd enjoy this nearly as much as I have, but I'm glad I did.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very, very dark brown - only really a dagger of dark brown piercing the body when held up to the light. Head is ochre, quite listless but leaving some nice trails behind. A swirl is quite effective in reviving it. Small bubbles, not too dense. Yeah, good colour, pretty good everything else.

Smells quite dark, yet not roasty. Lots of chocolate, dark and cocoa-esque with a Tia Maria edge. Yeah, very sweet, dark and liqueury, a touch of milk coffee and Irish cream almost and a big dollop of coconut lingering at the back. A really very fascinating smell, and very enticing.

Taste is quite sweet as well. Lots of chocolate, dark and sweet with some nectar notes on the front, and a touch of orange peel with more of that Tia Maria liqueuriness. Sweet, though, and nicely weighted with an obvious alcohol that only asserts itself through the fullness of the body and never gets hot. Pleasant touches of marshmallow with more Irish cream, caramel, some touches of cinnamon, milk coffee, and some hop notes towards the back giving apple characteristics. Some shiraz wine notes as well, berries and pepper, oh it's just intoxicatingly good. Wow. This is a cracker of a beer.

If a beer is this nice, I will drink it. It's a heavy drop and one for sharing, but it's amazing, so smooth, so tasty.

Backlog purge. Bottle poured into a snifter. Dark dark brown with a lasting tan head. Luscious aroma with sweet chocolate and vanilla and an undercurrent of spicy bourbon. Flavor is fudge and toasted oak, dark chocolate, roasted malt, vague raisiny fruitiness, sweet alcohol. Fluffy moussey body, devilish and great.

poured from a 375 ml bottle into a snifter glass
Artistic label and competent bottle worthy of the brew

Pours dark oily opaque brown nearly black with a two finger tan head slowly recedes to an unusually thin lacing

Aroma is heavy roasted malts big and heavy alcohol

Taste is a dichotomy of roasted malts and inspired dark chocolate, molasses and seared oak with the sweet caramel and fig like dark fruits of the brandy and finish is clean vanilla alcohol. Amazing

Mouth feel is full bodied and very creamy like dulce de leche but not as sweet, Velvety with little carbonation in the mouth. Thick at first then the warming alcohol kicks in and is silky and smoooth!

Overall a great inspiring brew worth the wait. Do not hesitate Try this beer Incredible balance adn complex

I think I got lucky and hit Julio's as a couple of these hit the shelf. The combination sounds fantastic to me.

Pours with a light brown two finger head that fairly quickly drops to an 1/8th in cap of foam. Can't see any light through this beer, which is a bit surprising. I am in low light so I can't really discern between brown and black here, but I am guessing more brown.

Aroma is of brown sugar and vanilla. A light sweetness and almost a light sense of chocolate in the background. More bourbon coming through.

Very nice beer. More molasses flavor vs. what I perceived as brown sugar in the aroma. A moment of mustiness, but this gives way to a nice sweet vanilla flavor. You definitely detect a higher abv here, but the sweetness and vanilla flavor plays nicely with these notes. I think I am getting bourbon up front and the brandy notes in the rear. The sweetness is consistent through and through. Wish there was a touch more dark roasted note from the stout side of the blend. But still really like this.

Lighter body than the flavor lets on. A touch of alcohol in the nose as you keep this in your mouth. Just a tingle of carbonation in your tongue.

I really like this and it's just outside of being a classic.

12.5% percent with barrel-age aromas and flavors.... almost black. no carbonation. a bit of alcohol in the taste, but what would you expect with 12.5% ? both brews that are being blended are very nice. not as rich as the 'Belgian' dark ales they produce, which is really nice. I guess blending is the big thing lately with all the breweries and this one doesn't disappoint. time for a return trip to the brewery. but this time sober to start out....

A: Pours a viscous dark brown/nearly black color with pretty much no head to speak of at all.

S: Awesome notes of bourbon, brown sugar, caramel, chocolate cake and some faint dark fruit. Amazing stuff.

T: Opens on the sweet side with some raisin bread, vanilla, fudge and dark fruit and then dries out and finishes with some burnt raisin, roasted malt and glorious bourbon. A great warming sensation with every sip without feeling too hot. This is without a doubt my favorite Lost Abbey beer to date.

1122nd Review on BA
Bottle to Sinners and Saints glass
12.7 oz C/C

2011 Bottle

App- A semi dark black with some brown highlights floating around the edges. Wouldn't you know this was carbonated and had a good 1 finger light brown head that fell to a couple lines of cling and a 1/8" ring of bubbles.

Smell- The majority of my scents are dominated by the brandy barrels. I get a little bit of dark chocolate, a little bit of the wood comes through and a lot of booze. Some notes of dark ruddled fruit round out the nose.

Taste- This was a very tasty albeit LARGE beer. The 12.5% is very evident. The beer opens with a prickly bourbon/brandy combination and then moves to a little bit of a light light chocolate note with a little bit of vanilla. The duality of the brandy/bourbon is quite nice but I thought lacked a bit of depth.

Mouth- A medium carbonation with a light-medium carbonation level. It was too prickly and I think needed to be a bit more smooth. I think a year would do this one well.

Drink- Overall, a good blended stout/strong ale beer. Had high notes of the ABV and some low notes with the prickly feel. I will come back to this one.

12.7 ounce bottle, 2014A batch, into a snifter.

Pours dark, opaque, thick looking. No head, little lacing. Smell is great- bourbon, a little brandy, malts, some cherries, vanilla, oak. Taste continues the bourbon- although the brandy has dropped out. Maybe a hint of it on the back end at room temp. Also malts, vanilla, oak, plums, a little bit of chocolate. Pretty boozy for a year or so. Good body, a definite tongue coater.

This is really good and I'm giving it a high rating, but for some reason I was expecting more out of this. Certainly worth a try, but- and this is a bigger "but" than I usually give, the price point is really high for what you get.

Picked up a 12.7 oz bottle from Total Wine in mid-August for $14.99. Appears to be bottled in 2013 A group.

Beer opened without much of a pop and poured black as night and lifeless with no head to speak of.

Nose is near perfect; bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, dark fruits.

Taste is oaken vanilla, bourbon, sweet liqueur, chocolate, dark fruits. Bourbon and brandy are well played and not overdone as to overwhelm the beer.

Mouthfeel is expectantly flat and lifeless.

Overall this is a wonderfully crafted brew with tons of flavor and layers of complexity. It would be great if there was a way to have a little carbonation in some of the barrel aged brews that have no carbonation but i guess you can't have it all. Glad i tried it and you should to if you have a little extra coin.

Deliverance, bottle bought at Nejaime's Wine Cellar in Lenox, MA, for a good $17.95. I saw many Lost Abbey beers during my time in Illinois (had a horrible bottle of '09 Brandy Angel's Share and enjoyed an alright-but-tedious Lost&Found, plus Serpent Stout on tap), but this was a new one for me.

Appearance: Poured in a plastic cup at a cheap motel in the Berkshires, Deliverance comes black and then some (it was after midnight with dim light and a wintry chill). You would think it's either coffee or cola. One-finger mocha-colored head that remains throughout. Beautiful retention and lacing.

Smell: Coffee, cola, liquorice, vanilla, wood, char. Caramel. Autumn. A beautiful, evocative beer. Perfect for this chilly fall weather in the mountains.

Taste: Yum! Now we are FINALLY talking, Lost Abbey! As the saying goes, "I could drink this all day". A perfect mixture of sweet and savory, with some booze to measure. Raisins, vanilla, toffee, bubblegum. Some smoke and country ham, distant. Chocolate, more cola at the end.

Mouthfeel: Just about perfect carbonation, almost full body (could use a tad more, though) and great balance. Nicely hot and boozy at the end, with a sticky finish that stays in the lips.

Overall: This drinks phenomenal. So delicious, balanced, engaging. A sipper or a chugger, but no trace of 12.5%.

My fourth Lost Abbey and the first truly great one. Worth the price? Almost. I'll buy it again if I see it.

Pours black. The Serpents Stout really takes this over in the appearance. Poured a thin medium brown head, stuck around though.

Oak, bourbon, dark fruits, chocolate, roast/char, dark sweet caramel malts, vanilla.

Bourbon and oak up front, the brandy adds some fruity, boozy notes. Charred toffee, chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla. The Serpent plays the biggest role here, and having had it before and knowing it's epicness, I'm totally cool here. This is great!

It's thick, full, smooth and creamy.

Like the BA Serpents, this is fantastic.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Ah, old school Lost Abbey... As to be expected this beer is essentially flat. Pours in an obviously viscous manner forming just the slightest hint of dark tan surface coating that quickly disappears and is gone for good. Color is nearly black. Beer is flat looking.

S: Aroma is pleasant. A mix of dark fruits, raisin, molasses, and toffee with oaky, vanilla, bourbon.

T: Taste is similar to the aroma, but brings about even more complexity. Raisin, molasses, and mildly sweet toffee dominate. Then the beer turns a bit malty, with notes of prune and fig, before turning boozy with the bourbon barrel coming through on the long, sweet finish.

M: Body is approaching the heavier side. Sweet, mildly viscous, and lacking all but a hint of carbonation. Slight boozy heat. Very mild bitterness.

O: A nice beer, very complex and a nice after meal sipper. Would have liked a little more carbonation - nothing too heavy - but something that would have allowed this beer to open up a bit more in the glass and on the palate.

Pitch black, so dark you can't see through it even held to the light. Thought I caught a glimpse of ruby at moments though. No head whatsoever, just a foam of rustiness. It almost stains the glass a rusty hue when twirled around.

Dark toasted notes, almost a fudge quality. Chocolate and black liquorice and hints of disappearing fruit. I get a hint of alcohol as well.

Dark and chocolaty, chocolate fudge, liquorice, hints of oak and whiskey, coffee and chocolate milk, and the spirit of fruitcakes past. A little burn in the throat.

Very smooth body for such a heavy brew. Slightly oily. Light, foamy carbonation.

Got this in Santa Rosa, CA. Drinking in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Really unique brew, my first from Lost Abbey. Been looking forward to trying this brewer for a long time. A lot like an imperial stout, with only subtle differences.

I've had this beer a bunch of different times, on draft and out of the bottle. Figured I might as well finally review this while it's current on-tap at my house. Poured from the kegerator into a Bruery tulip. 2010 vintage.

A - Pours black, mocha-colored head, thin film on top, spotty lace, thick collar.

S - Big chocolate, both milk and dark, booze, vanilla, brownies, and oak. Still pretty boozy, even after a year and and half worth of age, but it's definitely smoothed out since it was fresh. Very sweet, reminds me of a rich dessert.

T - Chocolate syrup on top of chocolate brownies with a small side of bourbon. There's a touch of oak and vanilla in there as well. The alcohol bite makes the finish bitter and boozy, yet still remaining somewhat sweet.

M - Full, rich and smooth, good carbonation, creamy finish. Even after almost two years, this one is still quite boozy. That said, it's really smoothed out since I had it fresh, and it's definitely more enjoyable now then ever. I think another year will do this some more good...might be perfect by then!

A little over 12 oz bottle, for what you'd usually pay for at least a .500, but let's get on with it.

A - Nearly black with reddish notes. Quarter inch tan head that actually stays for some time. Persistent lace.

S - Sweet dark malt and booze hit you right up front. I smell the bourbon and the brandy. There is a whiskey and a fruitier booze melded here.

T - It is what is labeled - I can taste the Serpent Stout and the Angel Share here. It's a nice blend. Fun. American Strong Ale, with Stout attributes, all aged in boozy barrels. Nice.

M - OK, if nothing else, IT IS CARBONATED. Way to go, Tomme! The malt is pretty sweet, but the booze cuts it a little. Over all, stays on the sweet side.

D - It's a small bottle as I said, but it is enough for me. I still wish it had been a .500 for the price and I could have shared it with a friend. Nice stuff.

On Tap (2009)

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

(Aged for 2 years)

A beautiful dark brown ruby that clings to to the glass. A thin light brown head. Beautiful.

The aroma is sweet (not to mention terrific!). I smell the bourbon along with a sweetness resembling coconut and molasses. I also smell chocolate and cherry. Wow!

The taste is a complete whirlwind of sweet molasses, bourbon, rich and velvety chocolate, all with a strong backbone of alcohol-drenched cherries and then even more chocolate. A layered, textured, taste adventure! Simply exceptional.

A rich and luscious mouthfeel.

While I'm full of rich superlatives for this beer, (surprisingly?) it isn't all that drinkable (in large quantity!). My 10oz. pour is far too much for me; I'm actually sharing it with those around me willfully. That being said: This beer rocks!

Appearance: Pours jet black with a 2 finger brown crown that displays good retention and moderate lace.

Smell: Bourbon, grain alcohol, lots of chocolate, and some roast malt.

Taste: Same as the nose with the bourbon and alcohol dominating too much.

Mouthfeel: On the thin side of thick bodied with creamy carbonation.

Overall: A decent blend worth checking out once.

375ml C&C. 2010 bottling.

Pours deep dark brown with a finger of dark tan foam, settles to a fairly thick ring with large bubbles.

Smells tremendously good. I can pick out both the bourbon and brandy barrel notes. Sweet vanilla oaky goodness. Red wine vinegar. Milk, chocolate, and lots of dark fruit. Toffee and caramel. The slightest of alcohol burn as well, but a nice touch.

Taste is just a touch less perfect than the nose, but contains much of the same. Melted chocolate ice cream with a healthy amount of acidic fruit and bourbon flavor. Sweet cherry tinged caramel. Fills your mouth with a nicely toasted wood flavor as well. Lingering bourbon finish.

A medium to full body and thick mouthfeel, as would be expected. Heat from the ABV, but not much contribution to the flavor. No doubt this is a sipper.

Probably the best I've had from Lost Abbey. Looking forward to the next batch.

Vintage 2010

No audible pop at corking. Pours like spent oil - inky black-brown with heavy viscosity and little sign of carbonation. Lots of prune, caramel, bourbon and brandy, raisin, figs, and hints of cinnamon sugar in this one. Really pretty nose. Profoundly rich flavored beer: caramel, tawny, bitterness (surprised), nougat, chocolate - light, bourbon, figs, sugar and slight booze. Quite still on the mouthfeel, a slight effervescence. Warm and dry finish with a long standing flavor residual.

I'm a bit torn here. The smell and flavor of the beer are top notch, but the look and mouthfeel are far from superior. I wish the beer was just slightly cabonated - previous bottles I've had were.
