kinda lifeless, with some rum and roasted malts. Weak, unbalanced and not too impressive. Expensive too boot. Waste of money.

Was really looking forward to this, love my barrel aged stouts, felt a little let down I was expecting so much more from the rum tbh it was a nice imperial stout and you could tell it was aged but I just expected more, vanilla, burnt malts sweetish rum but not too much not worth the cost ..shame

Bottle, pours dark brown with head. Aroma is dark fruits, dark sugar, very much of the rum. Pretty bozy. High sweetness.
Pretty weird, very much rum character but almost nothing more.
Very expencive but not good.

Fizzy cola color, thing head.
’smooth rum aroma, deceivingly light and easy drinking.
Vanilla, malt, alcohol.

Veldig god øl. Minner veldig om rochefort 8 og 10. Kjøpt på polet på rygge. Nytes i moss.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium brown head doesn’t last. Barely translucent deep dark red
body. Sugary molasses aroma with notes of earthy alcohol and
prunes. Aroma is fairly vague and mild. Dry-sweet-acidic toffee
raisins taste with vanilla and alcohol notes. Mild, soft
mouthfeel. Full-bodied. Dryish earthy compost syrup aftertaste
with vanilla and rose water notes. It’s certainly unsual, and
fairly drinkable, despite that rotten vegetables flavour Lost
Abbey seems to love. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Strømmen.

Bottle thanks to Morten. Pours deep brown with a reddish shine, small brown head. Aroma is white raisins, strawberries, dark fruits, dark sugar, lots of rum, a bit spicy, some chocolate, but dominated by dark fruits and rum casks. The taste is quite similar - a lot of malty sweetness, caramel, dark fruits, lots if rum presence. Somewhere in the middle of Imperial porter and barley wine. Very very sweet, but also some considerable roastiness to back it up. Very tasty and well balanced, just a bit too over done on the rum barrel.

Bottle at home. Dark red with a small beige head. Aroma, sultanas, rum, fruity. Medium body, very smooth, almost like a barley wine. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rum and coke. Very light color for an imperial porter. Clear and rosy. Very fine carbonation, odd for they style. Sweet taste throughout with very clear rum barrel presence. Quite boozy. Not bad, but quite disappointing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with ej. Pours a deep bronze-hued brown body with a small, off-white head. Nose is smooth dark malts, rum, leather, hints of tar, booze, smoke, wood and hints of raisins and dried plumes. Very nice. Taste is raisiny rum, strong licorice tones, herbs, hints of wood, leather, syrup and alcohol. Smooth blend with a full body and medium carbonation level. Original and craftily made beer from two solid breweries. Recommended.
