Presentation: 375 mL corked and caged bottle poured into my Portsmouth Brewery tulip glass. Served at room temperature and sipped over about an hour while enjoying the Bruins game.

Appearance: Really dark brown to black in color with a one finger caramel head and good retention. I was worried about that carbonation (after having Angel's Share before), but there lots to be plenty here.

Aroma: The bourbon definitely overpowers the brandy in my opinion. Vanilla, toffee, caramel, bourbon, and a touch of heat are all present. The bourbon is actually very well integrated and smooth.

Taste: The bourbon dominates again, but there is a touch of brandy in there too. Vanilla, caramel, toffee, and dark chocolate balance out nicely together. The added element of dark chocolate and espresso notes really balance this out from becoming too sweet. Some lingering heat in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and with some carbonation. Creamy, with a bit of a syrupy quality.

Drinkability: There is a lot of heat here, but it still works as a sipper here and I didnt have a hard time finishing the bottle (Unlike Angel's Share which became a chore by the end).

Overall, I really liked this beer and I'm glad I picked it up. The price tag is definitely steep, but I liked it enough that I'm glad I picked it up.

2013 vintage. Poured from a 12.7 oz cork n caged bottle into a Half Acre snifter.

A- pours near black with a half finger mocha head. Small bubbles of lacing cling to the glass.

S- big port aromas, oak, some barrel notes, dark fruits, light chocolate and roast

T- bitter bakers chocolate, oak, dark fruits, tawny notes, barrel but not really brandy or bourbon just liquor notes, more port or vinous notes at the finish.

M- full body and low carbonation. Fairly mild, light feel with some abv that is noticeable and dry finish.

O- very interesting beer. Brandy angel's share and serpents stout blend lends more oak and port notes than brandy or stout.

Served in a pint glass

Thanks to TMoney2591 for sharing this highly sought and priced beer.

The pours a deep blackness topped by a decent amount of tan foam. The nose comprises of most things heavy. There is some coffee, chocolate, whiskey, brandy, and oak along with various other sweet fruits that are hard to pick out amongst the myriad of aromas present. The flavor is wonderful. It tastes up front as if there is a very cherry-whiskey-syrupy flavor that is masked due to the smoothness of the beer. All of the sudden after you have finished with the mouthful, BAM! You are hit with the woody oak flavor that is quite unparalleled. It is a deep rich flavor, but a bit on the strong and boozy side. It's really a delicious beer and a heavy recommendation for anyone willing to shell out the cash required to purchase one of these bad boys.

Tulip

A - deep dark brown/black, one finger tan bubbly head

S - vanilla, bourbon, molasses, aged wood, sweet yeasty funk, huge malts, sugary booze, ripe fruit, bananas, soil and awesomeness

T - Belgian sweet yeast, toasted malts, boubon, wine barrels, milk chocolate, so much awesome booze, butterscotch, aged wood, so much earth, bananas, sweet fruits and a slight hop

M - full bodied, well balanced, very complex, low acidity and nice long finish

D/O - drinks like a Belgian, tastes like American craft, huge , huge and yep, huge. Tons of booze, very sweet, malt bomb awesomeness. This is for the true craft fan!

Final thought - 12% abv and $12 a pop is pretty awesome, don't share. Gut this beast and enjoy

Poured from 500 ml bottle into Stone taster glass. 2013 vintage.

A: Pours dark black with zero head.

S: Bourbon, vanilla, cacao nibs. Some slight dark fruits in the background. Maybe a hint of cherry.

T: Lots of bourbon character. Vanilla and chocolate notes are fairly prominent. A bit of cherry and other fruits.

M: Full bodied but almost flat. No carbonation to be found at all.

O: Very nice flavors, but it lacked carbonation. Maybe a bad cork seal?

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Vintage 2014A.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with no head, rather just a thick ring around the edge of the glass and nearly no surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a thick solid ring behind.

S- Signature Lost Abbey yeast aroma with notes of heavy dark roast and some brown sugar and vanilla from the barrel.

T- Maple, more brown sugar and some chocolate. Bitter dark chocolate aftertaste with some light char. After a while, some vanilla and marshmallow show up. Very smooth for the ABV. More milk chocolate and raisin characteristics come through as it warms.

M- Silky smooth with low carbonation and a robustly full body.

O- I don't know what it is, but none of the sought-after Lost Abbey beers strike a big chord with me. The only thing I can figure is it's their house yeast, because all their non-Belgian and non-Brett beers have this strange layer of flavor I can't describe that just doesn't agree with me. Don't get me wrong, this is great beer, especially for how well the alcohol is concealed. It just isn't in that upper echelon of awesomeness with some of my favorite BA beers. And none of the other barrel-aged Lost Abbey brews I've tried (Older Viscosity, Agave Maria) are either.

375 ml bottle, 2011 vintage, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a dark brown color, produces a thin layer of head that quickly vanishes to nothing, leaves no lacing.

S- Bourbon and brandy notes as well as sweet dark fruit, chocolate, caramel and vanilla.

T- Sweet and boozy but not overly so, has some flavors of bourbon and vanilla, chocolate, caramel and vanilla, the finish has flavors of wood and a bit of vinous fruit.

M- Medium-bodied, slick feel with medium to low carbonation, a bit of boozy warmth.

O- Another solid barrel-aged beer from the Lost Abbey.

bottle

Pours jet black, tan lacing for a head.

Smells of brown sugar, molasses, licorice, coffee, and burnt wood.

Tastes of coffee, chocolate, oak, caramel, vanilla, brown sugar, raisin, and bourbon.

Full body with light tingly carbonation on the tongue. Warms going down.

This beer is immense and phenomenally rich. It's definitely a sipper. You couldn't drink it faster if you wanted to. The flavor and aroma are almost overwhelming. Quite an experience.

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.

Appearance. Pours a thick looking deep dark brown, almost black in the glass. Topped with a thin skim of tan head that quickly fades to a thin ring.

Smell. Very woody bourbon, buttery caramel candy, leather, and some chocolate and vanilla.

Taste. Big bourbon and vanilla, caramel candy, old wood, butterscotch, cocoa powder. Quite sweet, boozy, and very rich.

Mouthfeel. Full body with low carbonation.

Overall. A massive beer with tons of barrel influence. Nice to find an appropriate amount of carbonation (though that should never be a welcomed surprise...).

Poured from a 12.7oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. Shared with a fellow beer lover.

Dark, murky brown is the coloration of this beer as it collects in the glass from the pour. Ruby edges appear as you hold it up to the light. Possesses a creamy, lightish brown head that dissipates into a thin film floating to the top. Lacing is spotty at best, but leaves that glassy film indicative of a beer with a big alcoholic punch. Just from observing the surface, the legs on this weighty brew are clearly evident as they swirl around. Sweet vanilla essence greets the nose at first whiff, followed by some earthy aromas. Bittersweet baker's chocolate makes an appearance, along with quite a hit of booziness on the back end. Faint hints of the brandy and bourbon are ever so slightly there if you sniff hard enough.

Taste starts off with a sweet, malty kick. Lots of vanilla and brown sugar, followed by a ton of dark fruit. Raisins, ripe dates and figs, the works. A chewy chocolate component also makes an appearance. After that, it's almost as if you're gobsmacked by the boozy brandy and bourbon that come through. Lots of alcohol on the back end to round out the taste, though a bit of roasted maltiness from the Serpent's Stout shows up to temper the finish. Not a lot of bitterness at all. Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly drying to the tongue with a good bit of body behind it. Definitely a sipper, but it goes down easily enough.

Having only sampled the Serpent's Stout prior to drinking this, I wasn't really sure what to expect except a ton of booze and that's pretty much what I got. With this much oomph behind it, you definitely have to pace yourself when drinking it. Blended beers are easy to mess up, but The Lost Abbey has something pretty good with Deliverance. Would definitely like to try this a bit more age on it, as the complexity of the taste would very likely improve.

Poured from a bottle into a Darkness tulip. The beer pours a deep-dark-brown-almost-black, this one is as close to black as can be without quite being there, it let's the slightest light through. There is a one finger light khaki head that quickly fades to a tight ring, leaving little lacing (just a few oily spots).

The smell is brown sugar, dark fruits and bourbon. The brandy definitely takes a back seat as it blends with the sweet brown sugar, vanilla, caramel and strong alcohol sweetness. The smell is sweet and boozy and very nice. This beer has a strong nose, and there's a lot going on, but the beer never steps on itself. Each element of the nose seems to take turns dominating, and it smells very good.

The taste isn't quite as good as the smell, but this is still a good beer. The sweet caramel, vanilla and brown sugar are met by some dark chocolate, cocoa powder and smooth oaky bourbon that balance the beer out. The finish is a slight alcohol burn and charred oak, pleasant.

The beer is lightly carbonated, fitting for the strong flavors and thick mouthfeel of the beer. This one is definitely a sipper, as the alcohol is evident early and often, but it's expected and welcome. Glad I got to try this one, certainly wouldn't turn down another bottle if it came my way.

Thanks for sharing Dankbeers619!!

A - Murky very dark brown with mahogany at the edges of the glass. Almost opaque. Little legs on the sides of the glass. Low forming, long lasting mocha head. A little bit of lacing.

S - Caramel, oak, vanilla, bourbon, cherries, chocolate, pleasant alcohol. This is a HUGE beer!

F/M - Chocolate, vanilla, cherries, plums, oak. Alcohol is noticeable and a little hot and solventyl. Rich and full bodied. Medium low carbonation is spot-on. Warming with a light astringency in the finish.

D - This is balanced just right for being such a humongous beer. The full flavors and big bourbony booze flavors meld almost flawlessly into a superior blend. Yet it finishes clean(ish) and has me begging for more. This is a fantastic beer.

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!

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.

Poured from a 375ml bottle into my Dogfish snifter. It poured dark brown, close to black in color with a very thin tan head concentrated around the edges of the glass.

The aroma shows a lot of the barrel characteristics to it with bourbon, oak and vanilla sweetness all very present. I get a lot of cherry and chocolate out of it as well. Very appealing aroma to it overall.

The taste starts out with some vanilla, oak and chocolate, sweet flavors. I get a bit of a raisin, brown sugar, cherry, fruity, sweetness coming through as well. Towards the finish I get more roasty and bitter flavors along with a big bourbon flavor with some heat to it. Some bitter-sweet chocolate flavors linger with the bourbon for a while too.

The mouthfeel is on the thicker side and carbonation is low, but not non-existent. Drinkability is good, I really enjoyed it. Definitely showed a lot of bourbon to it, but the beer flavors came out nicely as well. A little hot still but would probably age nicely. Very nice bourbon forward beer overall.

Got this from nerd; another generous extra! Poured into a tulip. Nice very black. The pour seems thick and oily. A quarter inch head covers the body.

About all I can smell at first is chocolate. Lots of sweet chocolate. A noticeable vanilla aroma is also present. A hint of mocha is also noted. These are a lot of the same aromas found in many barrel aged beers, but this is probably one of the most potent ones if had a whiff of.

Very complex taste here. The velvety feeling is noticed first, so I'm bringing it up before the taste. I nice coffee sweetness is how this beer starts, but it finishes with a sting of vanilla and bourbon. There is a bit of heat in the finish.

As noted before, this one has a nice velvety feel, kind of like a thicker Kate the Great.

Not too drinkable, but a very enjoyable sipper. Love it.

Pours a deep dark murky brown with a small cocoa brown colored head.

Smell is rich and sweet with a hint of bourbon. The smell is off syrup and molasses, really nice.

Taste is very rich, tons of robust flavors come through. Sweet molasses and milk chocolate with some vanilla oakiness.

Mouthfeel is really thick and creamy with medium to low carbonation.

Good beer, tastes like a much sweeter version of Bourbon County Stout.

From a 375 ml bottle (vintage 2013 b) into a chalice.

A-The beer pours heavily, like motor oil, and produces no head; just a thin collar of dark brown bubbles. There is no carbonation visible through the espresso-colored liquid.

S-The smell is appropriately boozy with big doses of vanilla, caramel, and oak.I also detect some roasted coffee and chocolate flavors, as well as booze-soaked dark fruit. The brew is quite sweet.

T-The taste is similar to the smell, with obvious-but-not-annoying booze warmth mixing with the caramel sweetness, macerated cherry flavors, vanilla, and chocolate. There is a bit of roast coffee-like bitterness on the finish. The brew is pretty complex, as it should be at 12.5% ABV.

M-The feel is surprisingly light. Perhaps it is just the alcoholic nature of the beer, but I could have used a bit more heft. Carbonation is light, pretty soft, and fine.

O-This is a tasty, almost-stout like ale. I really enjoyed the bourbon/brandy character here, as it was assertive and complex, without being overwhelming. You can really taste the booze, but you know you are drinking a beer. The feel was a little strange, but not entirely awful. With a sweet and boozy flavor, this is a solid dessert option.

oh Lost Abbery...deliver me from a shitty night with a plumber!

375ml bottle, served in a 12oz tulip/snifter hybrid...the cork put up a hell of a fight

A - pours with about a quarter inch of loose, creamy, dark khaki colored foam. the beer is mostly black/dark brown, with some barely detectable ruby notes when held up to light.

S - dark fruits are abundant here, loads of figs, raisins, and plums. toffee-like sweetness joined by some milk chocolate, before turning into some boozy bourbon, rum, and oak.

T - begins with some lightly bitter, charred roasty malts. sweetness kicks in right away, bringing toffee, molasses, chocolate, and raisins. vanilla creeps in, alongside some bourbon and wood. lingering coffee, fruits, and alcohol in the aftertaste.

M - medium bodied, with actually (way to go Tomme) a nice and pleasant level of carbonation. sticky, somewhat dry finish...bordering astringent from the sweetness and wood. alcohol burn attempts to clean it all up but is no match.

D - good? yes. great? eh, maybe. worth the price? depends where you get it. a local store has this exact bottle for $37. outrageous. that aside, it goes down fairly easy for its high ABV, and has enough solid flavors to keep it interesting.

A: Opens with a satisfying 'pop'. Dark brown brew capped with mocha head that does not have much staying power.

S: Buncha barrel on this guy. Rich toffee, dark chocolate cake batter, oaky vanilla and brandy. The brandy comes out as volatile, oozing the booze.

T: Saints alive! Creamy chocolate melds with buttery toffee and medium roast espresso, eliciting a smile on the reviewer. The only thing preventing a 5 on here is the heavy and hot booze that burns the mouth and makes it challenging to swallow. This is a strong candidate for aging.

M: As much as I appreciate the balance and feel, the heat tempers the score here too.

D: A well composed blend that will likely benefit from a cellared vacation.

375 ml into a dfh snifter

Lovely nose of bourbon, chocolate, brandy, a touch of booze, vanilla, and some roasted malts for good measure.

Dark brown body with a small collar of foam and some surface activity making some very cool looking swirls. 

Tastes most of the bourbon and chocolate. The roasted character from the stout is also evident. Fairly boozy on the finish. 

Nice full mouthfeel. The carbonation is low but is very fitting for this beer.
The alcohol definitely warms you too.  

Very nice beer overall. Definitely impressed and wish I had another one.

look: 2 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance – A dark, menacing elixir. A deep, black and somewhat evil appearance. Terrible head. In fact, none at all. Half the bottle was poured gently with almost no bubbles whatsoever. Then pouring violently, still no head. No lacing, no head at all. Perhaps a poorly carbonated batch? If not, this is a beer that could use some active yeast.

Smell – Dark chocolate. Lots of alcohol on the nose, which cuts through quite a bit. Molasses and bourbon are very prevalent. A slightly sour malt smell.

Taste – Intense and impressive. This is where this beer shines so far. Tons of deep, dark sugars and lots of alcohol burn. This is very similar to drinking bourbon itself. Vanilla, rye/ whiskey/ bourbon toffee notes, dark roasted coffee bean (from the grains), prunes and dates. Very nice dry, woody notes and the taste is extremely complex. Very sugar forward. Not noticing a significant amount of brandy with this, but the bourbon is definitely there. The brandy is mostly found on the aftertaste. Beautiful vanilla notes on the aftertaste. Very impressive. Strong brown sugar on the finish as well. Toasted dark malts and chocolate are at the forefront. Chewy and heavy. Very heavy.

Mouthfeel – Terrible carbonation. Almost none at all with this bottle. I am hoping this is not an oversight or typical characteristic of each bottle. It is flat and dull with very little mouthfeel. However, this still manages to stimulate all parts of the tongue and roof of the mouth. Oily, slippery and thick. Creamy with a smooth feel. Imagine what this would be like with a little carbonation.

Overall - Given the ABV and given the shitty carbonation, this beer is begging to be aged. Part of me wishes I did not open this, given the fact I have no access to it until I revisit the US. Assuming the yeast is not dormant, this could age up to 10 years at 12.5 % abv and perhaps become amazing with age. This could also potentially fix the extremely poor carbonation issue. Overall, this is incredibly boozy and not for the faint of heart. If you are not a scotch or bourbon drinker, you may want to stay far, far away from this, as it is an aggressive punch to the head. Delicious and complex. I would buy this again, but at $17/ bottle, hopefully the carbonation isn't an issue when aging or drinking every bottle.

On-tap at Acre for Faux-BAB.

Pours black with brown highlights and medium brown head.

Aroma of bourbon, wood, and some dark fruits.

Upfront taste is heavy on bourbon with a light roasted malt base, a little chocolate, and dark fruits. Blast of bourbon and wood dominate the finish.

Full bodied and syrupy with low to medium carbonation. Sticky finish with decent alcohol heat.

Very barrel-forward. Glad to see that it came carbonated. Not too complex as the bourbon overwhelms a lot of the flavors and aromas, but very enjoyable. If this wasn't so expensive in bottle format, I'd stock up on it.
