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.

28-05-11 Bouteille: Noir, avec un moyen collet de mousse blanche. Au premiers aromes, on croit sentir la angel’s share, c’est a dire brandy, sirop d’érable, caramel, petits fruits. En la brassant unpeu, le bourbon fait surface, mais en puissance, en laissant également de fortes notes de chocolats. Un de ces principaux défauts est qu’elle est trop sucrée et vue la puissance du bourbon, fini par tomber sur le coeur. Mélange très complexe et très intéressant a essayer. Corps puissant avec une texture riche et crémeuse. Finale centrée sur le bourbon qui trop de place et élimine les notes plus délicates de brandy et d’érable.

Bottle split with ewestern, thanks Eric. Aroma is sweet malts, bourbon, and oak. Notes of dark fruit, molasses, maple syrup, brown sugar, vanillia, and chocolate. Palate is chewey and thick. Flavor is sweet bringing out a hint of coffee, finishing a little dry. Damn good.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 23, 2011
375 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head that leaves a very small amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma is pretty awesome. Big bourbon, light vanilla, caramel, brandy, light leather, a bit of oak, chocolate, and a decent amount of alcohol. All the flavors come together quite nicely. The initial taste is sweet with some plum and bourbon. You also get some caramel, oak, chocolate, and brandy. The finish is pretty boozy with significant alcohol heat. Medium body. Low carbonation. Enjoyable beer. I would have rated the taste higher if there wasn’t so much alcohol too it. I’m curious if this will get much better with time.

Dfonorow (2039) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Pour is close to black but dark brown on the edges with a very small tan head. The head fades instantly and doesn’t leave much lacing at all. Aroma is extremely boozy with some hints of vanilla, darker fruits, and roasted malts. Flavor is very heavy on the alcohol in both the body and the finish. Some hints of sweet vanilla, buttered bread, and chocolate, but its mostly just bourbon. Very thick and viscous mouth-feel.

pineypower (3034) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours out almost black with a thin tan head. Aroma is of sweet chocolate, bourbon, oak and raisin. Taste is complex with a nice silky smooth mouthfeel. Chocolate, oak, bourbon, fig, raisin, earth and the finish rounds off with a slight alcohol burn. Once again a top notch brew from Lost Abbey.

Small dark tan head, fades quickly dark dark brown nearly black with choc edges... Dark fruits and bourbon, some vanilla, choc, licorice, choc comes out as it warms... Intense though a bit muddled, semi sweet, some dark fruits, bourbon, light vanilla, and chocolate... Lively, full bodied, some alc though not overly present, a little creamy... WOW, loads of flavor, loads of aroma, intense...

Bottle from HH22... thanks tim... Shared at SL. Aroma is boooooozy, wow... lots of alcohol notes with some roasted malts and some chocolate... Nice pour though.... Black, decent head. Taste reminded me of the angels share.... Boozy, alcohol notes, roasted malts with some nice chocolate bitterness. If the alcohol wasnt such a factor this beer would kick a$$. Medium body, kind of creamy, low carbonation. Either way a unique beer that I enjoyed. Thanks Tim

Bottle shared by Tooch4321...thanks Adam! - Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Brandy is apparent in the nose, along with tons of sweet dark malt and a bit of smokiness. The brandy/bourbon mix is much more pronounced in the taste, with tons of dark malt and yeasty, dark rye bread. It’s flat as hell with a syrupy, thick body. Fun and complex, but fairly boozy and a little overbearing.
