Beer 498

400 was the brandy barrel version of this beer. This is the Bourbon barrel version. Great beer. I really did not plan to drink beer tonight but was tempted by Brooklyn Detonation at Amity Hall and a 2006 Bigfoot at the Tiger. The very attractive bar tender at the Tiger compilented me on my choice!

498 - Lost Abbey Angel's Share Bourbon Barrel Aged....12.5%

Appearance a very nice nut brown. No carbonation at all, Smell -
Alcohol and caramel...why am I drinking this in the summer!
Drinkability - Can only do one of these a night.

Not sure where all the carbonation issues arise with these guys. Not sure if I would like this fizzy! That said I am happy to do the three hour round trip to Mass to get Lost Abbey/Port Brewing beers. Very good!
