3 oz bottle pour at ChurchKey. 2010 vintage. Dark brownish black with no noticeable head. Aromas of whiskey, coffee, chocolate. Tastes of chocolate, roast, light booze and whiskey. Medium body with a dry finish. Barrel character probably faded by now.

solidfunk (7219) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Caramelized barley and some booze. A hint of oak and almost a water sense here. Pours black without much head. Syrupy and somewhat sweet. Not sure about the hype on this. The regular one I liked better. 2010 bottle pour at Churchkey.

10/4/2011 2:12:05 PM Bottle with Rick at the Beer Temple. Dark brown amber body with hardly a head. Nose is sweet, caramel, bourbon and vanilla. Taste is also dark brown, malty. Lots of vanilla in there. What a smooth and silky drink. Really, really silky. Warming in the finish. Enjoyed it immensely.

ctipping (1109) - Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2015
375 mL bottle poured into a CBS snifter. No bottle date. Originally reviewed 7/17/2012. Pours a dark brown, translucent at the edges, opaque everywhere else. Lots of chunky sediment near the end of the bottle. No head. Flat as hell. Smell is Bourbon, vanilla, lots of booze. Toffee and burnt sugar. Booze. Whoa. Taste is Bourbon, vanilla, oak as well. Barrel is strong. Lots of vanilla and toffee. Sweet. Oaky and boozy. Buttery in the finish. Oaky and just a touch bitter in the finish. Flat. Thick, but not too syrupy. Boozy and not easy to drink. This was much better on tap. The carbonation probably has a lot to do with it. This is my first flat Lost Abbey bottle. I did pretty well to make it this far into my beer career without a flat LA bottle, I think. Good beer. Bummer about the carbonation.

X (172) - California, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle. .. Dark brown with a small dissipating off white head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla and sherry. Tastes similar to the nose but with a touch of bitter sawdust. As a woodworker I do not consider this sawdusty flavor particularly objectionable. Good stuff.
