4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle, viscously poured to snifters, displaying a mahogany highlighted, black/brown hue, with a modest but fleeting, bubbly, brownish tan head, and equally diminishing, spots & streaks of lacing, but a nice, tinted glow to the glass. The nose presented an initially quick hint of soy, then substantial roasted notes, and dark fruit. Full bodied, rich, bourbony & boozy, but quite smooth, with caramelly sweetness, and barrel influenced vanilla making more of a statement upon warming. An excellent, final offering to our weekly tasting session! Thanks, Tim!

The brandy is overwhelmed by the bourbon. How’s that for nitpicking? Aroma is almost all bourbon. Taste is more complex with chocolate, molasses and licorice.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2014 2014.03.11 - Lost Abbey Deliverance Ale. 375ml (?) bottle in pint glass. Complex stout a la Bourbon County or similar. Caramel/roasted malt to slight alcohol burn to cocoa finish. My first Lost Abbey, a good one. Minimal review as I am eating dinner.

Fresh on tap. Excellent blend of Lost Abbey's BBA Serpent Stout and Angel's Share, with distinct bourbon and brandy notes. Great flavor and a nice burn on the finish, if thinner than a few of the more viscous barrel aged stouts.

Great candy sweetness and an even better bourbon flavor that leaves you needing the next sip.

12.7oz bottle shared. Can you say excellence in a bottle. Pours an oily black no head. The aroma is molasses (sherry barrels) bourbon, vanilla, deep roasted malts. The flavor is godsend, dark roasted malts blended perfectly with the sweet of the molasses and hints of vanilla and bourbon. Alcohol is well hidden but yet evident. Truly and amazing beer. Medium to heavy body and so smooth and delicious.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours very dark brown with hints of blood red deep within a snifter. One finger of light brown head.
Bourbon, licorice, and dark fruit in the aroma.
Bourbon comes first and is very prominent. Underneath theres a little bit of chocolate and then finishes with some booze. Almost reminds of Bourbon County in how intense and tasty the bourbon is in this. Brandy in the background? Either way, this is a fantastic beer.
Smooth and silky on the palate. Very nice.
Overall, a fantastic beer. Glad that I grabbed the last one. Probably in my top ten.
