What I would like to call a motor oil beer, I was expecting something a little lighter, but pours a thick slugedy black. Vanilla notes, lots of raisin and soy sauce. Nice beer but expect something heavy and full bodied.

Another solid showing from The Lost Abbey. Not sure if I like this one better than the angels share alone though. Boozy up front like most of their higher abv beers are. Seems like they like to hit you with the booze hard. Can definitely taste both the bourbon and brandy. Great beer but high price point, $15.99 for 12.7oz

Love the molasses/syrup feel of this one. Delicious mix of bourbon/brandy booziness off the nose and tongue. Vanilla, dark fruit, chocolate, wood. Lingering alcohol aftertaste. Very solid.

Nice dark brown/black color with a dark red/brown tint on the edges. Smell is HUGE bourbon sweetness with hints of brandy. Flavor is big on the bourbon (almost BCBS-like, with a tad less fruitiness) with some dark fruit and chocolate notes on the finish. Alcohol is detectable, but not hot. Mouthfeel is medium to medium heavy with a some light carbonation. Still pricey for $15, but it's a nice treat. I'd happily pick this up again.

Popped the cork with no hiss. Poured straight down the glass and no head. We have a flat one here folks. Tthis is the second time I've bought a $15+ stout from these guys that wasn't carbonated so I'm kind of dissapointed. Not sure how many more of these I will purchase from this brewery. Anyway, smell is plesent. Vanilla, roasted malts,coffee and a bit of coconut. Taste follows the nose but with some raisens and prunes. Also, get some heat from the alcohol as it goes down but not a ton so that's rather enjoyable. Mouthfeel is rich, full and slick. Overall it was a very nice beer I just wish it was cornonated, even just a little bit.
