375 ml bottle corked and caged poured into a snifter. Aroma is beautiful. Notes of raisins, dark chocolate, vanilla, and a huge complexity of oaky bourbon and brandy tones. The flavor mimics the nose with an added sweetness that compliments the amazing bourbon finish. Palate is exceptional with mild carbonation and a nice velvety texture. This is my first Lost Abbey beer that I’ve had... I’m floored this is quite possibly one of the best brews I’ve had to date. Absolutely outstanding. Well worth its hefty price tag. Cheers

Bottle, bought @ Fish’n’Beer, Cph.
Pours completely black with a small, frothy, and light creamy beige film head. Aroma is complex, sweet, vinious, chocolate, vanilla, ginger, light roasted. Medium carbonation, fine dry and very oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sharply vinious - quite alcoholic really. Roasted, chocolate, some oak. Very unbalanced when considering the high sweetness and the extreme alcohol presence. Not my kind of thing.

Courtesy StefanSD. Dark barrel rum, figs and raisins, warm caramel sweetness. Cola colored with light carbonation. Warm tingly alcohol and lip smacking sweetness.

12.7 oz corked and caged bottle. This was a runner-up for my 900th rating. Pours near opaque black with no head and a tiny beige ring of foam. Aroma is way strong in brandy, wood, vanilla, raisins, molasses, bread--powerful, almost overbearing at first but it either mellows out or I got used to it. Taste is sweet, tart, and meaty with no bitterness. Absolutely packed to the fucking brim with flavor--seriously, there’s no way they could have fit more into this little bottle. Licorice comes out pretty strong in the finish--almost Jagermeister-like in its impact on the palate. Carbonation is soft, body is obviously full, mouthfeel syrupy. This is one helluva beer. Definitely a sipper.

picking up a slight stinky feet funk that’s killing the sweetness and replacing it with a dry earthyness, light tartness, still the rich chocolate and now dry caramel, no brandy, no bourbon, no hot caramel, another one bites the dust,

Deep amber with a little bit of head. Decent lacing.The nose is a nice mix of both bourbon and brandy.T aste is cherries and vanilla first, followed by some milk chocolate and caramel. The oak is present, along with a sweet sugary quality of brown sugar. Full mouthfeel.

MotherBrother (813) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2012
Shared with Steffen and Stefan. Pour murky brown, with a small off-white head. Aroma is really complex, with lots of barrel, bourbon, vanilla, and plenty of brandy/bourbon soaked prunes, dates. Taste is sweet and complex. Semi-full body, with an average carb. (Can really both taste and feel the "Angels Share" in this one)

Scopey (9033) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2012
Tap at PPCB. It pours very dark brown (nr black), with a thin off-white head. The nose is vanilla, wood, whiskey, roasted malt, alcohol, coconut, toffee and liquorice. The taste is roasted malt, salted caramel, toffee, wood, vanilla, whiskey, molasses, petrol, dark chocolate, liquorice, pepper and smoke, with a long warming, dry finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. There is a lot going on in this one, but thankfully the balance is there. Good stuff.

Tap @ Avery, doing the 10th Annual Boulder Strong Ale Festival. Pours hazy dark brown with a small light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon, oak, vanilla, raisins and other dark fruit, chocolate, caramel. Taste is malts, caramel, dark chocolate, raisins, plums, cherries, bourbon, aok, port notes, vanilla. Full body, low carbonation, long bourbon finish. Just WoW. 090312
