Lost Abbey Sinner’s Blend

What the brewers say

Bourbon barrel–aged with coffee, cacao, and Mexican-inspired spices.

What our panel thought

Aromas of dark chocolate, muted spices, and subtle coffee, with some balanced alcohol. Layers of light-roasted coffee, berries, dark chocolate, and vanilla swarm the palate in unison. The alcohol is prominent, but not overwhelming. A final dose of cacao, coffee, cherries, and blueberries presents itself retronasally.

What our editors thought

Cinnamon and peppers sail over a base of coffee roast. The body is a bit thinner than anticipated but offers a balanced roast, coffee, cinnamon, and bourbon-barrel approach. Lacks the luxury of the best in class but exe-cutes reliably.
