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, 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!

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.

375 ml bottle. Dark pour with thin tan head. Big chocolate ations with aome boubon. Flavor is mild to start out vanilla choclate and carmel. Finishes with a mild boozy note, but not too strong. Very well balenced for a bi ba beer

BIG thanks to Trappistlover for this much welcomed surprise! A: Yet another extremely black beer, however this one has some fantastic carbonation that sticks around throughout the journey! Wasn’t expecting that since its barrel aged and a Lost Abbey beer. I am seeing some good lacing, thick and sticky. S: Mmmm delicious bourbon my favorite. Getting some oak, vanilla, big O’ malt, maybe some leather, hints of brandy but the bourbon pretty much overpowers it. Definitely detecting chocolate too. Alcohol is prevalent but not overpowering to me, although I tend to enjoy the big boozy stouts. T: Oh yeah, that’s daddys medicine right there, love this! Getting the port wine brandy flavor and the bourbon aftertaste. Mild burn as it goes down but not too much. Definitely taste some vanilla but its subtle I only notice it after the beer fully coats and sits awhile. I am also getting some bitter chocolate but that could be the booze talking... O: I really enjoy this beer, too bad its hard to find and expensive. As I said before this is always a much welcomed treat! Thanks Dave.

Bottled. Pours a dark brown to black color with a small beige head. This looks more like the stout. The aroma is big sweet malts, dark fruits, bourbon and dark chocolate. The flavor shows both the bourbon and sweeter brandy notes, dark chocolate, caramel, ripe dark fruits and alcohol. The abv is noticeable, but with this beer not distracting. I am a big fan.

A hearty thanks to my cousin for cracking open this beauty! So it is half bourbon barrel aged stout + half brandy barrel aged Angel’s Share (which is a barley wine, I think, and a superb, top-rated brew on its own). Interesting aroma is malty, sweet, and floral. The barrel aging and blending results in a beer that is very complex and flavorful. There is a lot going on - warmth, coffee, sharp hops, a touch of brandy, some bourbon notes, an interesting sensation on the palate - and it is all blended nicely and in balance. This really is something special - awesome brew!

Bottle from South Bay Drugs: I was afraid this bottle was going to explode all over the place like their Framboise de Amorosa did, so I opened this bottle in the shower. Luckily, I will be able to enjoy the whole bottle and instead of having to share the majority of the bottle with my floor. Once poured, a beautiful beer fills my English pint glass with a dark mahogany liquid with a brown tint. There was a creamy yet delicate layer of foam head that lasted around throughout the drink. As for the nose, a rich and robust scent of sweet sugary malt and earthy wood barrel dominate the aroma. The palate is so smooth and gentle like a soft piece of velvet, but there is still a moderate level of carbonation. Flavors explode on the taste buds of my tongue and range from a mixture or earthy notes of wood barrel, vanilla, cocoa powder, maple syrup and a touch of sweet spice such as cinnamon. The finish is a rich aftertaste and leaves behind a trace of pumpkin pie. This is truly delighting ale, and feel so lucky to have gotten to drink it.
