The first time I fell in love with Lost Abbey beers was last year during Toronto Beer week when I went to an exclusive Lost Abbey tasting at Beer Bistro. It was hosted by BarTowel and a Beer Bistro staff who did a 1 year internship at Lost Abbey.
I’ve asked my sister to bring back a Lost Abbey beer I haven’t had the pleasure of trying yet – Deliverance.
Here is my review:
Lost Abbey’s Deliverance 12.5%
Appearance: very dark, almost black, medium brown head that dissipates quickly.
Aroma: Mocha, vanilla, bourbon and oaky.
Taste: Bourbon and chocolate dominates, roasty notes and burnt molasses comes out in the end. The woody flavours come out as the beer warms.
Mouthfeel: slightly chewy and very smooth, low carbonation.
Finish: Very boozy lasting finish, that isn’t too overpowering.
Overall this is an excellent beer. It’s very smooth and easy to drink but given that it’s 12.5% it can be dangerous!

Stay tuned for the next Lost Abbey Beer – Angel’s Share.
