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.

375mL. The pour is a tepid, hazy, deep mahogany with a lively, small, deep yellow head. Little retention and lace. Nice, low carbonation for this style. Aroma is very full and rich: heavy buttery bourbon, rich coconut oil, cinnamon, apple butter, old port. Approaching a 9/10 on the nose. Taste is rich, chocolate, butter, hazelnut, Nutella, dark chocolate ganache. Palate is rich, full, sharp, lightly tannic, oily to the extreme. Soft. Mild alcohol warming and slight rich booziness. Really delicious. Reminds me a bit of BA Santa’s Little Helper with less carbonation and little more alcohol kick. So good- I wish it came in 750s. Can’t wait to try some more of this in a couple of months or so. Doesn’t really need to cellar that much anymore. This is very much good to go.

kramer (5735) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a small fizzy brown head that retained as a thin covering. The nose is quite dense with a hefty maltiness dueling it out with the barrel character. There’s a bit more brandy barrel coming thru than bourbon. Rich vanilla and charred wood with deep burnt caramel and thick roastiness. The flavor comes across as quite boozy at first sip with thick syrupy malt. The flavor is definately leaning towards the Angels Share, but the deep roastiness is a nice addition to the mix. Lots of burnt caramel and heavy dark fruits. Quite decadent in it’s intensity. Full bodied and thickly syrupy with nice slightly fizzy carbonation that helps cut the heaviness well. Long lingering warmth that you can feel all the way down your throat. This is actually one of the better Lost Abbey beers that I’ve had in a while. The small bottle format is welcome on this one though, a 750 of this might be a little tough to finish.

Pours black with a thin tan head. Has a vanilla, bourbon, booze, and some brown sugar in the smell. Taste is about the same but the ABV better hidden in the taste than smell. Very nice!
