Vintage 2011.
Appearance: The body is a nice pitch black with no head, rather a very thin and clean brown ring.
Aroma: The aroma is strong of oak with brandy and bourbon, on a second smell I pick up some chocolate and dark fruit notes. This is complex and begs to be dissected.
Taste: Whoa this is very complex, right away the fruits and thick syrupy chocolate intertwine while some brandy is noted, though mostly on the finish. The mid-taste is malty with only light hints of oak near the finish, with a mild burn of alcohol on the finish.
Palate: Thick and syrupy with just a light tingle.
Overall: This is an excellent sipping beer that has amazing complexity to it that begs to be drank slow. This is similar to sipping a fine cognac, enjoy slowly.

One of the most amazing beers Iíve 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. Itís 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 didnít think that the blend of Serpentís Stout and Angelís Share would work, but oh man it does.

Dark-red small head. Aroma of raisins and alcohol. Malt, burned caramel alcohol, raisins and vanilla in the taste. A complex one.

jake65 (2742) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle from Smokes n Suds. A reassuring pop of the cork before pouring a very dark brown, thin brown cap. The nose is rich, bourbon and chocolate malt. Lightly sweet, but also oak and char. The taste is also rich, a little more emphasis on the bourbon and chocolate malt. Less smoke/char and a bit of bittersweet. Rounded edges. On the downside itís a bit thin... Finishes with a very soothing bourbon and chocolate note.

Nocturne (912) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2014
375ml bottle. Black and pretty headless. Just a thin coating of brown foam. Bourbon hits the nose first. Lots of dark fruits in there. Vanilla too. Something like buttery, maple-drenched pancakes as well (guessing the brandy). Taste is pretty sweet (to be expected) and a step down from the aroma but still has a nice dark fruit complexity and some heat on the backend. This is worth its high rating.

1000th review!!!!!. 12.7 oz bottle poured into my Lost Abbey long stem snifter. Pour jet black with a half finger khaki head which fade to nice lacing on the edge and nice legs as you drink it. Aroma is of dark fruits, brandy, molasses, roasted malts, espresso, bourbon, sweet malts, burnt malts, woody notes, coffee, and some light booze has it warms. Taste is brandied soaked dark fruits, brandy, roasted malts, woody bourbon, licorice, molasses, burnt sweet malts, espresso, dark chocolate, anise, and some very light booze has it warms. Has a medium-full body with a creamy, oily mouthfeel, and a mostly sweet, lingering, slightly warming, mouth coasting, long, lingering finish. Overall, a true amazing, world class beer that is defiantly worthy of being my 1000th review.
