The date stamp was not clear, but guessing 2010 vintage. It’s held up nicely. Some fruity notes that weren’t there before.
13.something % ABV imperial stout aged in whiskey barrels with coffee and cocoa nibs added. Preserved well.
Only at the brewery, and likely not for long. On draft is completely different from the normal bottle-conditioned version. Bottle conditioning with champagne yeast makes for a crisp dry finish, almost bitter. On draft the beer is slightly sweet and smooth.
Beer # 5 in the distinctive Schltz Malt Liquor low boy tumbler.
This beer has gone through some subtle changes in the few years since its inception… each time better than before. Previously only available on draft at the brewery tasting room, this years batch is available in 375ml bottles. Perfect to go with a 20″ cheesesteak sandwich and homework.
Tasting plan: drink by number, one per day, sip slowly, and enjoy these fabulous creations by Lost Abbey (purchased from a friend)….
Single serving size.
Like kale, it’s like one of those super foods. No fat. High energy, low fat… plenty of fiber.
010 being poured now….mmmm The remake of Yellow Bus.
