So disappointing...What is with the carbonation issues at Lost Abbey? The taste and aroma of this strong ale are intoxicating, of rich dark chocolate, bitter and roasty. But it's almost completely still, and it's clear that it wasn't intended this way. My local distributor said they've been having "problems" with the carbonation of some of these strong ales, and it shows. The whole beer just falls a bit flat. Just a touch of carbonation might have resulted in near-perfection.

Off the charts brandy and bourbon-malt taste; pours black; full bodied; carbonated, complex; potent - one's enough!

20JUL14, Coy's house 12oz, tulip Pours black, brown head, very small and disappears. Aged in brandy and bourbon barrels. The mouthfeel is almost sticky. It's very delicious.

Pours jet black. Dark malts, brandy, fig on the nose. Smooth bourbon flavor with brandy on the finish. Some heat from the alcohol. Definitely complex and interesting but I don't think i'd buy again at the price.

Opaque, deep, mahogany brown with tan head that dissipates quickly. Nose is loaded with malt (surprise!) and dark skinned fruit aromas. Full bodied with abundant carbonation, chocolate and malt dominate the palate. Yes, I'll do this one again! profile - April 22, 2014
Complex flavors abound! Chocolate, malts, plenty of weight, an alcohol burn combined with a barley wine effect on the first sip, and what a smooth, robust finish. This and the Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Stout are terrific, but the brandy may push this over the edge.

Smooth flavors makes for easy drinking. Bourbon up front with the brandy in the back! Excellent beer.
