The Lost Abbey Old Viscosity
What the brewers say
"Imperial Stout with Vanilla, Coffee, and Chocolate."
What our panel thought
“Coffee dominates the aroma with a touch of chocolate. Nice interplay between the coffee and the base beer. Well-thought-out canvas of underlying sweetness and roast with patches of dark-fruit notes and vanilla. Sweet finish with a pleasant spice that hits you in the back of the throat, well-balanced with more roasted-coffee notes.”
What our editors thought
“Big caramel-coffee notes on the nose strike a latte pose. The sip tightens up the excess of the nose, with sharper (and slightly unforgiving) roast notes.”
