COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For the past two years The Lost Abbey has released a winter barrel aged blended strong ale. This amazing blend of beer has focused on a marriage between Bourbon Barrel Aged Serpents Stout and Brandy Barrel Aged Angelís Share. We believe itís one of the most amazing barrel releases we do each fall. But in the spirit of old recordings and records I started thinking what would happen if we played this one in reverse? Would we hear the Demon himself on the record? So with that, we flipped the blend on its ears and spun it backwards. The result is a blend of Brandy Barrel Aged Serpentís Stout and some Bourbon Barrel Aged Angelís Share. Itís still an epic struggle between good and evil, only this time we slowed it down and played it in reverse.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with paperthin beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong cocoa, bourbon, toffee, and caramel. Thick mouthfeel with nice roast, cocoa, light boozy finish. Very impressive.

Bottle. Pours cloudy mahogany with a small brown head that dissipates quickly and dissipates quickly. Aroma is rich vanilla, oak, bourbon, dark fruits, raisin, fig, chocolate. Wow. Flavor is medium sweet, very light bitter, tiny bit of astringence. Woody tannins, vanilla, rich HoTD like flavors going on here. Full body, creamy, perhaps a tiny bit chalky. This is a great great beer.

Gift from SJ. This was AMazing. Toffee, roast, vanilla and wood. It was smooth and carried so much flavor as it warmed. One of the best brews I ever had. The aroma alone, chocolate, toffee and vanilla hooked me.

Mega Tasting at Bruceís pad. Opaque dark brown beer, residual pale tan head. Palate is slightly dry with modest carbonation. Clear and resonant note of dark chocolate. A little coffee and a whisper of bourbon. Tangy dark fruits and a very light touch of wood. Light semi dry finish. A fine and tasty beer!

Scopey (7057) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle, generously shared by Kenny at the BIG Friday tasting. It pours near black with a small tan head. The nose is rich-roast, dark chocolate explosion, treacle, oily, toast, vanilla, coconut and a touch of soy sauce. The taste is smooth, oily, dark chocolate, coffee, jammy dark fruits, toast,, treacle, sweet coffee, fudge, marshmallow and some alcohol warmth in finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Flavoursome and good depth. Tasty.
