AdamChandler (3878) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 4, 2014
2013 - 2 ounce pour. thin head, pretty oily and pretty much an oily very thick viscous beer in the glass Huge roasted walnuts and chocolate milk nose It has a barrel strength rye whiskey taste that starts mid-way through and lingers for a very long time. Shaved dark chocolate atop a million layer chocolate chip cookie is pretty much the overarching to this beer but honestly, the astringent, acid roastiness (not creamy at all) takes away from everything else. My teeth are chalky after each sip. Very boozy, dry and intensely roasted. Good but I wouldn’t seek it out again

Backlog: Bottle I brought to CDBD Pt 1. Pours a black body with off white, brown lacing. Aroma is dark fruit, prunes, cocoa, light lactose, chocolate, and sweet espresso with extra packs of sugar. Mouthfeel is medium to full with a rich sweetness upfront, sour dark fruits, chocolate and cocoa follow. A little booze in the finish.

2012 bottle, shared by quackus, 11/17/2013. Pours black, hazy light tan head swirling on the surface, thin ring of lacing. Aroma is rich toffee, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon - typical Lost Abbey notes à la Deliverance, Angel’s Share, etc. Taste is caramel, toffee, dark chocolate with full round bourbon finish, rich. Thick, chewy body. Delicious.

Bottle shared by "hannont". Colour...basically black with a thin tan head. Nose...burnt sugar and soy sauce. Palate...thin, but smoky with burnt marshmallow and cotton candy. This covers the flavours for the most part. I was thinking there’d be more dimensions than this.

Bottle shared by Tom, thanks man! An equally toasted and roasted flavor profile, thick dripping bourbon, light smoke, bitter oak, subtle dark fruits. Moussey on the palate. Pretty hot.

Pour had a much thicker head than most other ba stouts. Nice smooth bourbon bit of sweetness, not much else to seperate it from the pack.

Dark brown/Black pour with a dark tan head. Chocolate, vanilla, and sugary sweetness. There are from light fruit notes and a touch of bourbon. Excellent!

22 oz. bottle, courtesy of mista (thanks Geoff), pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, slightly sour notes, oak and slight chocolate. Flavour brings out lots of oak and vanilla, a sort of sour quality without really being sour, and cocoa. There’s a touch of dark fruit in there, like slight sour cherries. Definitely overhyped and overrated, as there’s really nothing special about this. Nicely constructed and well-balanced, finishing on oak and cocoa. Good stuff but way overrated due to rarity.
