Pours thick and dark with a small brown head. Nose is big vanilla, molasses, brown sugar, chocolate, boozy and wood. Taste is sweet and very lightly bitter. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Soft. Heavy body with a long aftertaste. Decadent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, corked. Looking quite cute, with its dark brown body topped by a dense, finger thick tan head. From there its just upwards. The aroma, I dont know how to describe it, I was completely blown away. Sweetness, molasses, alcohol, something peat-like, lots of dried fruits, some medicine and a touch of spicyness in a wonderful mix, making it quite hard to start tasting. And wheres the alcohol hidden? I can feel it in the mouth, theres some notes of vanilla in the flavor, revealing its bourbon ageing, but that 12.5% ABV is sure well hidden. Flavorwise, its equally as wonderful as the aroma, complex as hell, and damn its tasteful. The finish is more on the roasted side than the initial flavor, and lasts for ages. Super smooth, full-bodied and warming, its next to a sexual experience just feeling it swirl around, caressing the palate oh so softly and careful. Damn, Ive never been as close to a 4.7 before. Someone send me another bottle please. 110930

Zymurgeist2 (2149) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Great complex aroma with the booze really apparent. Black with brown highlights and mimimla brown head. Chocolate, caramel, oak, vanilla - massively complex. Chewy and dry mouthfeel. I would have rated lower when straight out of the fridge - so much better as it warmed up and became well rounded and complex.

Natai (124) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 25, 2012
This blend pours a deep, dark, murky brown with a tan diminishing head and good lacing. Deep aroma of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, coffee and port with hints of cherry. Full body and great flavor thats not overly alcoholic given this is a blend of two strong barrel-aged ales.

kermis (12485) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle shared at home. Virtually black pour with a small tan head. Aroma is massive bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, caramel. Flavour also dominated by the bourbon, along with the same aspects in aroma, very sweet and beautifully smooth with dark fruit. Noticeable alcohol warmth in the finish. Full bodied with very soft carbonation.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2012 37cl or so courtesy of kermis. Ok off white head. Clear deep ruby pour. Complex aftertaste. Very nice.

RasmusOtt (2657) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2014 Pours dark brownish/copperish with no head. Aroma has alot of that angels share dark fruityness going on along with some bourbony vanilla, roasted notes underneath, sweet caramel, chocolate and some wood. Taste of dark sweet fruits, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, weak roasted notes from the serpents stout, barrel is quite present and gives the beer a dryness and flatness on the palate. A bit too heavy on the barrel but otherwise very nice!

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2012
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.

maley1 (1233) - Calgary, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
Dark brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, coffee, bourbon and vanilla. Taste of molasses, malt, dried fruit, coffee and a strong bourbon presence. Alcohol burn was prevalent but as this warmed up closer to room temperature this became more creamy and smooth with all the flavours meshing nicely together. Funny what difference the temperature can make, that being said and the cost of this beer, I recommend not drinking this too cold but slightly above room temp.

Somehow the bourbon & brandy were put into check by the other additives. Its rather impressive. Aging sometimes takes so much away from a beer & sometimes it truly makes a beer. My friends this was done just right. It was a wonderful experience.
