Bottle pours muddy brownish black with low head and carb. Aroma is big dark sweet fruits and oak/bourbon. Taste is rich malt and dark fruits with a nice amount of oak and bourbon. A big light on the palate for the style

Pours a dark brown, not much head. Fig, dark fruit, and malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet.

At my place over an empty pool with group. Aroma is huge musky fig, burnt plum, bourbon, raisins. Taste is very nice, somehow smooth boozy full sweet raisins. Great full flavored sugar raison bite. Finish is long and nice and brandy forward.

WillRunForBeer (644) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2014
Tap at Ale House. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma of raisin, chocolate, dates, vanilla oak, lots of bourbon and brandy. Nice and full in the mouth without being too heavy. Complex flavor with all ot the above. A nice sipper, for sure!

njnut (228) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2014
Poured at a tasting. Black with a nice tan head and thick lace. The aroma is amazing, and complex. I can pick up the bourbon, some oak, dark fruits, and vanilla. Maybe all together the aroma is taken as winey. The taste was equal to the aroma, this is a bozzy one with the alcohol coming out in the finish. This is as close to drinking velvet as I would think. Pure heaven.

Pours jet black with a tan head. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, raisins, and toasted oak. Rich flavors of vanilla, chocolate, and bourbon flavors. Such a creamy mouthfeel and smooth.

stoutnick (504) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Coke-like colour with some tan lacing. Amazing aroma - brandy comes out in almost fruity smell; but that is only the beginning of the aroma! Little bit of vanilla. Taste leans more towards the serpent stout vibe with some minor bourbon flavours alongside the malty bitterness. Dark fruits and some tangy marscapone flavour. Don’t think I enjoyed drinking this one nearly as much as that lovely smell. Not such a fun beer sadly as too much going on; all in different directions. Nice vanilla finish. Respect this one but don’t have much affection. In my opinion a somewhat confused beer with an identity crisis - the definition of a blended ale.

Poured from a bottle purchased at Lost Abbey Brewery into a Lost Abbey Pint glass a thick motor oil with a tan head. Aroma is exquisite. Vanilla bourbon. Flavor is rich dark fruit with plenty of vanilla booziness. Finish is like velvet to the tongue. Extraordinary!

circinus (209) - SWEDEN - APR 3, 2014
Bottle 33 cl at Rotary pub. Pitch black, no head. Distinct dark fruits, raisins, figs, slight chocolate, slight licorice, wood. Vanilla, fudge, rum, some alcohol, quite sweet. Full body, smooth, vanilla/fruity finish. Very nice, all of the characteristics fit well together.

ChainGangGuy (4366) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2014
12.7 ounce bottle - $14.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Gurgles out an inky, blank body with a smallish, but dense, dark tan head.

Smell: Blended malts leaning towards roasted with noticed inclusions of the sublime bourbon and brandy barrel aging. Bittersweet chocolate, nutty sweet syrups. Heavy on the dark fruits.

Taste: Roasty maltiness, dark chocolate fudge, a spoonful of maple syrup. A few flecks of char. Blend of the robust brandy and bourbon notes. Deep dark fruitiness, prunes and dates. Splash of tawny port. Low hint of anise. A little perceived saltiness precedes the soft, roasty, chocolaty finish followed by lingering warmth and sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel.

Overall: Let us all enjoy the wonder of Deliverance Ale!
