FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Been anxiously waiting for some special occasion to open this one. I guess Monday night is special enough. Poured from 375ml to tulip: Pours an inky black with a half finger of light mocha head. Stubborn lacing and sultry legs. The nose is stuffed with smooth bourbon and spicy wood. Malted caramel and toffee, warming booze and licorice. Some cherry notes as well. Hot damn. Delicious. All the expected players make an appearance with the addition of some tart, earthy woods. Very nice. The booze is nicely incorporated. The feel is what I was concerned about. I had heard from countless people that Lost Abbey beers are notoriously flat. This is far from flat. Velvety smooth, beautiful. Overall, I desperately wish we could get Lost Abbey here in the north woods. If their other beers are even half as good as this, I would be their biggest customer. WANT.

’11 bottle in late ’14. Slightly murky dark brown black. Nose of dried dark fruits, light vanilla, some chocolate, and sweet booze. Fairly rich flavors, but flat lacking carbonation...a common complaint for me for BA Lost Abbey stuff. Flavors or sweet dried fig, chocolate, sweeter dark malts, light booze.

2013. Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours deep rich brown with a fizzy, bubbly tan head. Smells like strong astringent alcohol, raisin, earthy, woody, very light ash and tobacco. Tastes like alcohol, raisin, chocolate syrup, and ash. Light/medium body and very low carbonation.

tiarasummer (11) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2014
Definite sipper. Minimal bourbon and a nice chocolate/cocoa dryness at the end of the finish. Heavy but not overwhelming and definitely not overly sweet nor syrupy. Somewhat creamy in the middle. Great beer and I’m quite curious to see how it tastes a few years from now.
