4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Been anxiously waiting for some special occasion to open this one. I guess Monday night is special enough. Poured from 375ml to tulip:
Pours an inky black with a half finger of light mocha head. Stubborn lacing and sultry legs.
The nose is stuffed with smooth bourbon and spicy wood. Malted caramel and toffee, warming booze and licorice. Some cherry notes as well.
Hot damn. Delicious. All the expected players make an appearance with the addition of some tart, earthy woods. Very nice. The booze is nicely incorporated.
The feel is what I was concerned about. I had heard from countless people that Lost Abbey beers are notoriously flat. This is far from flat. Velvety smooth, beautiful.
Overall, I desperately wish we could get Lost Abbey here in the north woods. If their other beers are even half as good as this, I would be their biggest customer. WANT.
Dark brown color, small brown head. Some sediments. Aromas of bourbon, cognac, sugar, dried figs, raisins, caramel, dates and slight chocolate. Sweet and peppery taste with bourbon, alcohol, raisins, cacao, dried figs, wood, cognac and vinous hints. Peppery and alcoholic finish. A bit too much on the boozy side. heman (1267) - Tychy, POLAND - DEC 10, 2017
Barwa czarna, z brunatnymi prześwitami.
Aromat intensywny słodowy, suszone owoce w cukrze, melasa, cukier trzcinowy i bardzo wyraźny charakter beczki: wanilia, kokos. In minus wyraźny alkohol.
W smaku pełne, początkowo słodkie, jednak wytrawność wzrasta wraz z przełykaniem. Susz owocowy, nuty porto, niuanse palone, finisz alkoholowy, gryzący gardło, z mniej wyczuwalnym wpływem beczek. Goryczka średnio niska, popiołowo-alkoholowa. ANZUShophunter (653) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 30, 2017
From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Pours dark brown, almost black, with thin tan head. Molasses and licorice permeate aroma and taste, the brandy and bourbon barrel aging work well together. The I-stout & barleywine combo make it the ultimate black & tan. You play a mean banjo! Werckmeister (3444) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - NOV 29, 2017

Botella 33 cl en Señor Lúpulo. Gijon 22/07/2017 (r779) Sin lote ni fdcpref legibles. Color negro oscuro con pequeña corona de espuma beige. Sabores y aromas a madera, con toques maltosos dulces y buenos toques a maderas empapadas en licor ligeramente caramelizados. Cuerpo medio a intenso con cierta densidad, fino. Bastante buena, para repetir. The_Osprey (9690) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2017
November 2017 - Cork and cage 12 fl oz bottle at home in Richmond as 'Lost Abbey Deliverance', 12.5%, undated - picked up in 2014 for something like £18. Pours a thick-looking black, opaque and forming a minimal light brown head. Aroma is initially a bit meaty but settles on vanilla bourbon, custard, oak and digestive biscuit. Body is rounded, oily, tingly carbonation. Lots of body. Taste is huge bourbon, pretty 'salty' with warming booze, 'meaty' sugars, underneath the heat and barrel you can pick out some cocoa and coffee bean notes but this really is a hefty barrel bomb. A slow sipper and hard hitter. Huge but not that refined. (8-4-6-4-15=3.7) coil (180) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2017
375ml corked bottle from hopburnsblack.co.uk. Love the labels on these Lost Abbey beers. Black colour with small tan head. Big dark roasted malts, dark fruits, burnt toffee, big bourbon barrel, some brandy barrel, liquorice, light cocoa powder, oak, lightly smoky, light espresso, burnt caramel, soy sauce. Thick boozy body, very low carbonation. Really great beer. melush (4961) - SPAIN - OCT 21, 2017

375 mL bottle shared by Gus with ebone1988 and myself. The pour is a darker brown with a ruby undertone and a light tan ring of head with a couple spots of lace. The aroma is really good. Sweet and caramely with a soft dark roasted malt and light licorice. There is a good fruitiness and a heavy bit of booze with a light oak backing it all up. The flavor is much of the same. It's a little sharper with a brandy and bourbon addition. Balanced with a boozy finish. This is pretty solid. The mouth feel is medium bodied with a light carbonation and a lingering brandy and oak finish. Pretty good. 8 4 9 5 17
