adster (533) - HUNGARY - FEB 6, 2015
Mélybarna, imperial stout-szerű ital gurul ki a nagyszabású üvegből, gyűszűnyi, de mégis sokatmondó, marcona italokon rendre felbukkanó típusú habkéreggel. Nagy formátumú, strukturált, magas százalékú alkoholok detonációja érkezik meg aztán lehengerlő erővel, az illatmolekulák egyszerűen belefúródnak a receptorainkba. Tüzes bourbon-aromái konyakkal átitatott faháncs, forró étcsokoládé, karamellás-kakaós-kókuszos-vaníliás belga édességek hangulatát egyszerre idézik meg; sötét és rabul ejtő a kezdés. Mint az várható volt, a kortyok önálló életre kelnek, és bár az alkohol masszív jelenléte a whiskys, brandys jegyekkel felülírhatatlan, sokszínű és megfejthetetlenül összetett jellege mentén lenyűgöző karakterek sokasága tárul elénk. Bár a jellemvonásai közeli rokonságot mutatnak egy vérmesebb imperial stouttal, kevésbé testes és mérsékeltebb módon szirupos jellege megdöbbentőbb vadsággal párosul. Mindez a kolosszális szerkezet egy bársonyosan szétterülő kakaós lepelbe van burkolva, mely simulékony étcsokoládés jegyekkel csalogat, a masszív alkoholos test vaníliás bourbon fergetege azonban megmutatja igazi erejét. Szeszben ázott fahordó füstös malátás zamatainak élét sós karamella lágysága puhítja, majd keserű likőrök zord lecsengése karcolja össze a képet. Kaliberénél fogva fontos alkalmak méltó kísérője lehet.

DSG (8575) - Tel Aviv, - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Black with a brown head. Aroma of cocoa, dark chocolate, cookies, vanilla and a dark fruit note. Sweet flavor with chocolate, cookies, dark fruits, vanilla, wood, bourbon and a slightly alcoholic warming finish. Full-bodied. Really good.

375ml corked bottle, 2014 vintage. Another great beer from lost abbey! Great aroma of bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark fruit and a little bit booze. Pours black with virtually no head but what's there is light brown with no lacing. Starts with dark fruit and bourbon flavors with hints of vanilla. Finishes extremely smooth with oak flavors joining the party with some booze lingering on the palate. Great beer, rich and flavorful.

One of the most amazing beers I’ve had. This brew has it all: maltiness, fruit, oak, and even a touch of citrussy bitterness from the hops. Leaves a nice but not overwhelming finish. Outstanding!

2013 vintage. Wonderful brew. Nice barrel character accompanied with dark fruits, plum, raisin, prunes, figs, dates, and toffee and dark brown sugar. Well crafted brew. Wish I had more than 1. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a wine glass on 05.19.14. A: Midnight black with no red in the glass. No head, only a tan ring at the top, typical of Lost Abbey. S: Strong vanilla, brandy, bourbon, wood barrel. Amazingly complex! T: Vanilla, dark cherry, plum dominate. Oak barrel, milk chocolate, raisin are subtle. M: SIlky smooth. It’s like velvet. Somewhat chewy. O: This is a beer for a special event. To say that it is complex does not do it justice. I got a wash after wash of flavor. It was very difficult to pick apart. I didn’t think that the blend of Serpent’s Stout and Angel’s Share would work, but oh man it does.
