The Lost Abbey Deliverance Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is The Lost Abbey Deliverance Ale. These days I’ll buy anything made by The Lost Abbey and it now seems that at nearly any price (this bottle was not inexpensive).
From The Lost Abbey website: “A blend of bourbon barrel-aged Serpent’s Stout and brandy barrel-aged Angels Share, Deliverance is the epic battle being waged between heaven and hell for the souls of mortal men… and your enjoyment in a glass.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours extremely dark brown, nearly black with the tiniest mocha colored head and sticky lacing.
Aroma: Bourbon, brandy, dark fruits, molasses, vanilla, caramel, chocolate and licorice. Amazing nose and sweet smelling!
Taste: Boozy bourbon and brandy followed by chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, oak and dark fruits (raisin, fig and cherry).
Overall: Certainly a sipper, The Lost Abbey Deliverance Ale is huge and at 12.5% ABV a beer to be respectfully consumed. This thick and rich offering is something I’d like to drink again and again. This beer is exceptional!
