RSRIZZO (1871) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle courtesy of and shared with BeerandBlues2 in Dec.of 2010. Color is a near solid mahogany with very low carbonation and almost no head. Aroma of oak, brandy and dark fruit. Its full bodied with a rich mouth feel. Flavor is big and bold with oak, dry fruits and brandy then a mild bitterness. After taste lets the sweet flavors linger with just a touch of alcohol showing. Overall this is a wonderful brew, may be the best Iíve had from Lost Abbey.

Atheist_Peace (977) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2011
375ml bottle. Pours a very dark, opaque brown with almost no head at all and the thinnest ring of lace. Huge malt presence on the nose with lots of coffee, dark chocolate and licorice. The brandy is fairly subdued on the nose but thereís also a lot of stewed fruit and a certain earthy quality. Weighty and rich on the palate with most of the notes from the nose coming through. Long warm finish.

Pours deep brown/black with a thin mocha head. Aroma is very roasty and complex with notes of dark fruit...fig...bourbon, vanilla, chocolate...winey and boozy. Flavor has smooth vanilla and bourbon up front with subtle dark fruit following...spicy hop notes, slightly winey, fig...sweet and roasty. Mouthfeel is creamy...only slightly lively...with a very roasty, warming finish that displays nice bourbon. Awesome.

jkwood04 (4174) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 10, 2011
12.7oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a thick, lacy, tan head. Aroma strong of roasted malts, chocolate, a little coffee, bourbon and brandy and the alcohol that comes with these, and some nice hops to balance it out. Flavor an incredible blend of these two beers that are both great on their own - the Serpentís stout and bourbon really come through in the aftertaste. Thick and smooth. A great beer.

McGrupp612 (139) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle poured into snifter. Black, no head, a few bubbles around the edge of the glass. Aroma is: Bourbon, chocolate, coconut, raisin and a tart wine like twang at the end. Flavor is: chocolate, coconut, bourbon, wood, booze. It finishes with a tart brandy note. This beer would be so much better without the brandy barrel. I havenít cared much for the double barrel aged beers. Mouthfeel was a big let down, but I knew there was a chance for little to no carbonation. More bubbles would have made this a much better beer too. Dissapointing.
