375ml bottle that I only bought because I found it for $11, I feel bad for anyone who paid $17 because this beer is way overpriced. Black color, a decent head, it was not completely flat! Aroma was a bit of booze and malt, meh. Flavor was barrel and grapes, I mostly tasted the angel's share because I kept thinking of cognac. Decent beer but ridiculously overpriced even at $11. Booo.

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

Poured from a corked and caged 375ml bottle into a snifter glass. This is over a year old.

A: A dark brown/black color that does let a little bit of light in. A one finger light brown head sits atop. No lacing.

S: Deep dark malts coupled with heavy bourbon and some fruit. A bit oaky and earthy too.

T: I got roasted malts up front with lots of bourbon. These get mixed with dark fruit flavors, raisin, some chocolate, vanilla, oak and some coffee notes. Sweetness holds the beer together with caramel and some toffee notes. The roastiness stays on the finish as it stays sweet. Alcohol is huge and lingers.

M: Full, coating, a bit syrupy and a heavy alcohol presence (bourbon, of course). Carbonation was light but sufficient.

O: A very good beer, but not spectacular IMO. Give me the Angels Share any day of the week over Deliverance. I think the blending works, but I just don't think is as good than AS.

I'm glad I finally got to try and review this beer. I felt a little disappointed just because I din't think it was "spectacular", but no doubt it was a very good beer. Honestly though, for the price I doubt I'll ever pick up another.

Pours without a head so no lace. Pitch black color, no highlights. Very light carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Molasses and bourbon nose, flavor is almost burnt, sweet molasses and alcohol. Some alcohol burn. Seriously expensive at $17.99 for a caged & corked 375ml bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, MA.

Poured from a 375 mL bottle into a Teku glass. I believe this is from 2012.

Appearance: Pours a deep, deep brown, nearly black and leaves behind about a finger of tan head which fizzles away quickly.

Smell: Bourbon and chocolate flavors upfront along with some brandy and cherry. Some earthiness to it as well as.

Taste: Bourbon, chocolate, cherries, oak and vanilla. Finishes with some brandy which is very nice. A lot of the familiar bourbon barrel aged stout flavors but some differences, especially towards the finish of the flavor. A very prominent oak/rooty flavor throughout also makes it a bit different.

Mouth-feel: Medium bodied with a light carbonation - surprisingly smooth though.

Overall: This one has picked some some interesting flavors from its time in the barrels. Earthy tones accompany the delicious bourbon, chocolate, dark fruit flavors along with a hint of cherry which is nice. Overall, I was satisfied with this brew which mixed some familiar flavors with some different things to make for an interesting beer and its smoothness is exceptional.

The smell at first is slightly chemical, slightly piney, as it warms more coffee, espresso, cocoa. It it barely scented. I have my doubts.

At the first sip they are wiped away, drowned in a sea of majestic smoothness. Overwhelmingly strong raisins, brown sugar, dark roast coffee.

I'm too drunk to continue but this beer is grand.

Sensational mellow boatload of flavors. On tap at Churchill Cigar Lounge in Old Town.

Black and velvety in the tulip. Lots of lacing and a handsome beige foam that persists to the last sip. Sprightly on the tongue, with the carbonation mingling with the hot alcohol.

Really sweet and boozy, but kept in check by the hoppiness. Not too bitter, not too woody. Tastes exactly like a whiskey barrel. Huge dark roasted malt flavor with the alcohol scratching at your throat. Sweet and glowering flavor, rich and buttery, endlessly rewarding sipping. The tap version was listed as 10.9% but who knows.

375ML corked bottle poured into a snifter

pours an extremely dark brown color with no head. none whatsoever...0 carbonation. not unusual considering this is from the lost abbey. smell is bourbon, though no overwhelmingly so. the taste is where this hits the mark. somewhat sweet, with a dominating bourbon flavor. very thick. alcohol is very present but not overbearing. if you are a fan of whiskey then this beer will be a favorite of yours... if that's not your thing, then stay away as you'll hate this one. as for me, bourbon is my favorite...so i really like this beer.

Included in the first monthly "Beermageddon Night" with several people. Review is from my notes. I cannot thank Jon enough for bringing this to the tasting. Poured into a teku glass from a 375ml bottle. No bottling date, unfortunately, although this monster of a beer could probably age forever.

First off, we all know that the Lost Abbey is notorious for the under-carbonated beers, but this is ridiculous. It took about half a minute of struggling to take out the cork, and when it did, it dully opened with no pop of carbonation whatsoever. Pours absolutely no head to speak off, with a dark, almost violet looking film at the edges. It's pretty much opaque, but there's an interesting density change that happens at the center of the glass, ranging from black to a lightly tinged brown at the edges when held against the light. No alcohol leggings. When I got the dregs, there were some bubbles that showed up on the rim. A particularly intimidating looking beer indeed.

The smell, in particular, is ridiculously intense. Classic Lost Abbey raisin notes, plums, bourbon, brandy sweetness, chocolate, raspberries, blueberries, and syrupy sweetness piled way under a massive boozy backbone. I'm a huge fan of Serpent's Stout, and while I've never had Angel's Share, nor either of them aged in the respective barrels featured here, luckily the stout backbone in this beer seems to be winning. Maybe it's the power of bourbon, but regardless, it produces a more bready, roasted flavor that I find appealing over the presumably opposite intended reaction, which would be candied and vinous. Not bad at all, but definitely intense.

The flavor takes the insanity to the next level. This has a ton of heat! Flavors include chocolate, raisins, vanilla, charred wood (from SS), and vinous, fruity, candied flavors from AS. The brandy and bourbon in particular meld in a hedonistic way, to say the very least. Absolutely an explosion of all kinds of flavors that do indeed go well together, but still overwhelm the senses with the amount of alcohol dryness and soaked sweetness that occurs with every sip. This is one of the ultimate sipping beers I think I've had by them. I absolutely took my time with this thing throughout my small portion, and still felt the heat by the end. Totally nuts.

How does one review a beer this insane? I'm very glad I divided this with three other people. There's no way I could get through a bottle of this on my own. I would honestly suggest sitting on this for some time to let the heat drop a bit. The stout bourbon and brandy notes are really one of a kind here, but I must warn everyone of their overwhelming characteristics before drinking. This is definitely an ideal digestif, but is better consumed in small portions. Can't say I'd have it again any time soon, but I'm glad I got to try it. There's something to be said about recipes this ambitious in craft beer.

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.

Pours a deep almost black with a red hint to it. You can see how thick it is. Minimal cinnamon coloured lacing, doesn't stick around.

little bit of bakers cocoa and bourbon. boozy dark fruits. so good.

It's... all of the things? That are good? it starts almost sweet, before giving way to the boozy dark fruits, with the bourbon and cocoa coming in to finish. Seriously this is really really good.

Creamy and smoothe which belies the alcohol bite that finishes it. Bitter bakers cocoa and alcohol finish it.

This is seriously one of the best beers I've ever had. If you have to push elderly people down concrete steps to get to it, well, you might be a terrible person, but so long as you end up with this beer you shall find deliverance. Seriously. Drink it

Finally took the splash and ponied up the bucks for one of these, and used my own advice of not cellaring something the first time I've had it. Had a rich, deep-deep amber/caramel coloring, and a potent smell. Split it wife my wife while sharing some brownies, and it was a perfect pairing. I got a strong sense of the brandy sweetness, more than I thought with the strong bourbon smell coming out of the snifter. It had a delicious alcohol flavor without too much burn, which was excellent. The only thing that I left out on my scoring was the room for improvement that would very likely occur if left to mellow and blend with time, allowing more of the actual stout and old ale flavors to come out and play.

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.

375 ml bottle, 2013 vintage. Pitch black in color, looking very much like Serpent's stout. Head formation yields only a small cap of tan foam. Spotty lacing dots the glass. Aroma is barrel-forward and somewhat boozy. Prominent oaky-vanilla and ripe, candied dark fruit notes. The alcohol hides some of the complexity in the aroma.

The Serpent's Stout, which is the only one of the two components of this blend I've had, is immediately noticeable. The roastiness is tempered by the barrel aging and the addition of Angels' Share. Sweet, but not too sweet, and strong. Alcohol is more restrained on the palate than on the nose. Chocolatey stout character leads followed by tons of oak, vanilla, and a slight alcohol sting. The light carbonation nicely matches the heft of this beer, while there's a slightly syrupy feel to an otherwise thin mouthfeel.

While expensive at $15 for a 375ml bottle, Deliverance lives up to its promise and then some. Without a doubt, this is one of the best barrel-aged beers I've had the pleasure of tasting.

Poured into a Lost Abbey Rastal San Marco Glass. Pours a very dark, nearly opaque broown with a fine, half finger light brown head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of dark and roasted malt, vanilla, wood and bourbon, nice. Flavor is really, really nice; dark and mildly roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon, oak, dark dried fruit, finishes with a hint of brandy and sherry. Medium, creamy bodied. Tastes like a perfect blend of its two components with excellent balance between the Angel's Share and stout. Both are excellent ales and this is also superb. Definitely a very warming alcohol presence, but this too is melded into the flavor well. Heavenly.

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

Appearance: Dark, dark brown. The closest color to black while still considerably in the brown category. The appearance is not that of the most full-bodied beer, but does look rather syrupy and oily. A thin mocha head recedes into a film of small bubbles. Some strong alcohol legs as expected from the 12.5% ABV.

Nose: Opens up with big chocolate and caramel. Lots of booze. The bourbon and brandy are both present. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, alcohol, and some dark fruit and brandy/fruity-oaky heat synchronize like a chaotic symphony.

Taste: Rushes over the palate slick and oily. Dark chocolate takes over but immediately heats up from the alcohol. The alcohol is very strong, especially in taste with this beer, but isn't too menacing. It flows nicely with the beer and makes the overall product aggressive. Giving this beer some age would probably result in something truly spectacular and really mellow the hot barrel characteristics. Mid palate is warm and bourbon-y. Finishes long and warm with brandy.

Overall: Gives a feeling of foreboding as you progress through the bottle. The heat from the alcohol is massive and almost overbearing. I couldn't honestly say that the alcohol is well-masked or balanced nicely with the other flavors, but it still works. As I take a sip, I feel criticism for the beer because of this heat, but keep going back for more. It is complex, enjoyable, and definitely sharable. A real "on the fence" beer for me. Definitely worth a try and positively worth cellaring.

The Beers of California


Vintage 2013

A: Velvety black on the pour with a small cap of espresso foam which fades to a collar on the glass.

S: Big alcohol notes complimented by wood, vanilla, molasses, brown sugar and dark berries.

T: The alcohol is towering, smooth, and warming with highlights of wood. There is dark sugar, vanilla, molasses and dark berries which bring a countering sweetness to the alcohol. The malt is grainy, oaty and bready with moments of burnt cocoa nibs and espresso. The finish is warm with an accompanying earthy spiciness.

M: Full bodied and smooth with minimal carbonation.

O: This stout, strong ale blend boasts big flavors and big alcohol with subtleties and nuances that make for a complex and worthy brew. Hope to try the component beers soon.

This poured out as a deep black color with a thin tan head on top. The retention is minimal with a touch of scattered lacing. The smell of the beer is boozy, fruity, wooden, vanilla and bourbon. The taste reflects the nose, rich flavors of roasted malts and caramel in there as well. Subtle vanilla in the finish. The mouthfeel is creamy smooth and oily, moderate carbonation. Overall it's very good, really eligant flavors and te mouthfeel is impressive. Well worth the price of admission.

This beer is normally $15, but I bought this 375 ml/12.7 fl oz bottle at a Sprouts for $4 because the cashier did not have the price on her, so she offered to sell it to me for $3.99. Clearly, I had no objection. The bottle wasn't refrigerated as far as I could tell. Consumed in my room at room temperature.

The cork was one of the toughest I had to open on a beer, with surprisingly quiet pop, indicating very mild carbonation. Poured into an AleSmith Decadence tulip-shaped glass, the color is stout-like rich black and brown. The head is non-existent with some visible surfacing bubbles, almost like an old coke. Pours like used motor oil.

The smell is strong, deep, and has an "aged" quality to it. It smells delicious with sweet notes of caramel, pungent dried prune, malt, and alcohol.

Distinct aged/dried prune taste that well mask the 12.5% alcohol content. The distinct malty flavor is very rich, overwhelming, and even dizzying. There are also pleasant sweet notes of dark fruit, with bitterness virtually absent, and only an ailing hint of bitterness on the finish. The dark fruit flavors definitely dominate this beer and it is unlike any American Strong Ale I've tasted, maybe because it is a blend of bourbon barrel-aged Serpent’s Stout and brandy barrel-aged Angels Share.

Rich, full-bodied viscous texture, with a nice alcohol warmth that lingers in the throat. A pleasant light tingling sensation on the tongue from the mild carbonation.

Distinct dried prune, aged look and flavor, surprisingly well balanced barrel-aged stout and bourbon barrel-aged strong ale. Complex aged flavor unlike any other beer I've tried.

Deliver me from evil. Wow, this beer rocks. Strong taste with bourbon and vanilla, fruit like undertones. Great bouquet and nice dark color. I've been waiting for a while to try this beer and was only holding back because of cost. At $16 for a 12 oz bottle, I'm not going to drink too many of these, but I will drink them on days that end in a y. Great overall beer. Nice dark color, sweet vanilla fruity taste and good strong alcohol taste. Love it!

Drank from a 12.7 fl. oz. corked and caged bottle purchased at Ball Square Fine Wines & Liquor, Somverville, MA
Vintage 2011
Served in a snifter

The beer poured a dark, murky brown with faint crimson highlights. Minimal carbonation. A thin film of saddle brown bubbles topped the liquid but they quickly dissipated into a thin, lasting ring of froth.

Bourbon and vanilla notes dominated the nose. The vanilla was incredibly fragrant and sweet. After a few minutes, roasted malts were apparent. Lots of dark fruits and raisins. Sweet brown sugar notes. The bourbon became even stronger as beer sat. Overall, super boozy but pleasant.

Flavorwise, the beer was initially undrinkable. A permeating alcohol sharpness completely overwhelmed my palate. Strong wood and tannin notes. Even with two years of age, this was a hot and boozy mess. As the beer warmed and opened up a bit, roasted malts and brown sugar notes appeared on the front end. Raisins and dark fruit were noticeable as well. The bourbon and brandy flavors still came through loud and clear, but they were not quite as piercing as earlier in the session.

The mouthfeel was a bit of a letdown. It was thinner and lighter in body with a fine and spritzy carbonation. Somewhat creamy and supple however. Frothy.

All the Angel's Share variants seemed to be quite boozy, but this beer takes the cake. I can only imagine how intolerably hot this must be fresh.

Enjoyed this on tap at the Local Option in Chicago, IL served in a 10oz snifter.

A - The room was dark so I apologize if the color is off. It did look like a dark black murk, full finger of mocha head, and good lacing.

S - Sweet bourbon, chocolate, toffee, vanilla and aged fruit...maybe dates.

T - Initially: Chocolate, bourbon and toffee. Finish had some booze, slight hops but a mostly a coffee flavor. 12.5ABVs hidden very well.

M - Not as thick as you'd imagine. Low carbonation, high viscosity, creamy but not the ultra cream/velvet feel.

O - Very nice. But this beer had me confused. Maybe for the good, maybe for the bad depending how you look at it. This brew is very hard to classify. Has the look, smell and taste of an Imperial Stout. But the not yet the feel of one but more of an dark ale. Only beer I've had of its kind is Bell's BA Batch 9000. Both blur the lines between beer classification. Did wish there was more of the aged fruit flavor. Didn't taste much, or any at all.
