COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first release of the embodiment of good versus evil in a barrel-aged blend. Part bourbon barreled The Serpent’s Stout, and part brandy barreled The Angel’s Share, this is our most anticipated release of the summer.

Bottle caged and corked. Dark mahogany with a red tint with no head. Nose is sweet sweet brandy. Figs, raisin, Bourbon. Taste is sweet dark fruit with a lot of booze and barrel. Warming bittersweet booze warming finish. I think this bottle was a bit flat.

tmoreau (2134) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2014
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.
