Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.

Let me start out by saying this is not the first time that I have had Deliverance Ale by The Lost Abbey. The first was at FOBAB. At FOBAB this was on tap and outstanding. Creamy, smooth, big, and perfect for the day. I had it another time from the group of bottles that I purchased. It is one yummy American craft beer.
Deliverance is a blend of beers, like most Lost Abbey beers, that includes bourbon and brandy ages ales. Each is subtle but strong enough to compliment, while not overpowering or being over powered. Sort of a perfect blend. The aroma and taste both have bourbon, oak, vanilla, some earthiness that seems from the barrel, dark fruits (mainly cherry), and molasses. It is a bountiful and pleasant. They aren’t cheap at $16.99 for a 375ml, so I don’t know if I will buy them again in quantity, but I will get one each year. Enjoy!
