Tap at EBF. One of my favorite saisons (or BSAs, depending on who you ask) completely destroyed by a whiskey barrel. Very porty, oxidized, prune aroma; huge, sweet, and unflattering. Intense flavor, the whiskey completely obliterates everything in its path. Not very good.

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2010
In short: A sweet vinous bourbon vanilla lovefest. A huge step down from the regular.
How: Tap at Extreme Beer Fest 2010
The look: Near black body topped by a beige ring of foam
In long: That beer was very bourbonny, very vinous, overwhelming vanilla flavor, alcohol very much apparent, slimy syrupy body, dark fruits, annoyingly sweet, low-medium carbonation. I was hard to recognize the regular 10 Commandments in this mess. The beer is not bad. You just cannot turn the 10 Commandments into a bad beer even if you try very hard, and it feels like Lost Abbey tried very hard. I just think that aging Belgian Beer in Bourbon Barrel is not a winning combination. Same goes for 6, 18, 44, x, π, 0.5, -1. Not a winning combination for any known lottery.

Jblauvs (1339) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 15, 2010
EBF Sexy black pour with almost no head. Aroma is tons of barrel, vanilla, chocolate, oak, bourbon, figs, a bit of plum raisin. Mouthfeel is rather creamy, immedeate bourbon on the palate with dark fruit more plum and fig and some nice booziness. chocolate Oakiness and creamy vanilla round of this really nicely barreled Lost abbey. Nice

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2010
EBF. Pours a black body with a yellow off white head. Bourbon, oak, and a milky chocoalte warming. Some dark fruit tones grapes, raisins over oak and a modest warming. Nice BA ale.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Pouring at session one of EBF in Boston. Pours a hazy brown with a thin white head. Chocolate, spices, like Mexican hot chocolate. More spice, wood, a bit of booze, and lightly medicinal. Big chocolate, and spice, and yet more alcohol on the finish with some big vanilla.
