gEUS (1266) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2014
330 ml bottle at home. Pours deep brown with a nice egg-sheel white-greyish colour. Aroma is bourbon, bourbon and some more bourbon with well hidden nuts and raisins, hints of toffee. Medium body with lots of vanilla sweetness and noticeable alcohol butn. Taste is vanilla, cinnamon and sweet cherry oak, caramel and nuts. This is certainly not bad, but why oh why do bourbon barrel aged beers have too much bourbon - I lack a decent balance between the taste of the base beer and the bourbon... I still like it a lot :-).

budznsudz (577) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2014
2012 bottle. The cork was incredibly difficult to extract. Alas the beer has almost no carb. What did I expect from the lost abbey? Fortunately itís not infected. Aroma is bourbon, oak, leathery tannin, and a touch of toffee. The taste is bourbon, vanilla, oak, and oxidation. Itís good, although it would be sublime if it wasnít flat.
