3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

Neck of bottle states bourbon 2013. Not sure where I got. Wondering if not stored properly. Very good but I didn’t get some details that most others did. Pour was sludgy dirty brown with no head. Aroma was dark fruits and caramel. No alcohol for me. Great palate. Taste similar to aroma. No hops actually wished for some shops to balance sweetness. Would love to try again fresh not sure I missed some of what this was supposed to be
