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 9/24/10. Hazy red-orange-brown shade of black with a small tannish head. Holy fudgey bourbon aroma! Very warming…. Mixed with some lesser notes of roast, spice, cherries and ash. The flavor is the same…. Very rich and delicious…. dessert-like. A bourbon-y sting comes through as it warms. Medium/full body but alcohol cuts through to make it incredibly quaffable.9/4/9/5/18/4.5+

(Bottle, thanks tkrjukoff!) Pours black with a small light brown head. The aroma holds smooth roast alongside a fantastic barrel mix - I pick up both the bourbon and the brandy. Also clear tones of (Belgian) esters - both dried and fresh fruits, Belgian chocolate, fat caramel and some alcohol. Subtle spices and tiny earthy/leafy hops. Almost creamy, coconut and vanilla notes as the beer gets warmer. Fantastic complex and deep nose, almost a bit romantic. The flavour is near medium sweet, light to medium bitter and tiny, tiny acidic. Complex barrel ageing, smooth, luxury chocolate, dried fruits, caramel and wood shop. The mouthfeel is round, smooth, creamy and velvety with a light carbonation. Quite fiery. Lingering wooden and malty finish. Nar full bodied. Super!

Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours pitch black with a small bubbly brown head leaving some lace. Aroma is fruity, fullboduied, sweet, malty, vanilla and oak barrel; well in balance. Flavor is like aroma, pungeant, tingly on tounge; excellent balance. Finishes yet again balanced between bitter, oak, malt and alcohol.

Bottle, thanks to tkrjukoff. Black beer with a small beige head. Sweet oaky whiskey aroma, creamy and with vanilla notes. Whiskry flavor, roasted, vanilla, cream, chocolate, malt, toffee, hoppy grassy notes, some metal. Lovely balance in this beer. Oaky, woody and with coconut notes. Long warming finish. Truly a great beer!

Beerman6686 (6053) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2011
This poured a medium to darker brown color with a very small basically non existent tan head. Aroma was lots of bourbon and brandy, dark chocolate, and dark fruits too, some molasses as well. Flavor was much the same as the aromas, lots of deep dark roasted chocolate, lots of boozy brandy and bourbon too. Great Stuff.

375mL bottle, and one of the best sounding blends I’ve ever heard of. Poured deeper, rather murky brown with a rich toasted tan head.. looked very good in the glass. The aroma picked up just what I needed.. well-roasted licorice, rich vinous fruits, and sweeter chocolate accented by vanilla and most enjoyable bourbon.. peppery notes and alcohol warmth on the back of the nose.. everything worked together.. awesome stuff! The flavor opened with a syrupy foray of molasses and lesser maple, with bitter licorice, aged caramel, and vanilla settling onto the middle.. tangy oak, sweet bourbon, and black peppery alcohol around.. finished with more of the barrel and warmth, but neither got out of hand. Heavier-bodied with low, but enough carbonation on the palate.. it really let the brew flow at its own pace through the mouth.. warm belly and warmth in the nose after the drink, and I loved every minute of it.

Thanks to bungletronics for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is outstanding. I get a lot of roasted malt, along with some alcohol and chocolate. The flavor is also excellent. The chocolate and roasted malt notes are great and those are complimented with a lot of notes from the bourbon barrel aging. I get some nice bourbon notes, as well as some maple and vanilla. There is also a little bit of nuttyness in the flavor which compliments the other parts very well. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. One of the best Lost Abbey beers I have tried.

12.7oz bottle thanks to luckyhank. pours a light black / dark brown with no head - the bottle gave a nice pop. Very nice nose full of bourbon, light brandy, dark fruits, oak, light Belgian yeast and sugar. Full heavy body - almost syrupy. The barrel notes really shine across the mouth with the brandy barrels coming through stronger than on the nose. Bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, fig, oak, grapes, apple, raisins and sweet residual sugars fill the mouth. Somewhat hot finish with deep fruit layers combined with more barrel notes, chocolate, molasses and sweet sugars.
