Lost Abbey Sede Vacante
« on: May 10, 2013, 06:08:15 PM »
Just heard of this today. Anyone in the SD/LA area able to get a bottle that they're willing to sell/trade?

Sede Vacante is a blend of Barleywine aged in Cognac barrels and Brandy barrel-aged Angel’s Share and at packaging came in at 15% abv. A contemplative beer with substantial depth, Sede Vacante imparts tones of dark fruit and vanilla, with a warming finish from the Cognac. The strongest beer to emerge from The Lost Abbey, portions of the beer spent almost 5 years in a barrel. Sede Vacante can be enjoyed immediately or cellared till the next Papal Conclave, however long that may be.

Translation: We found a bunch of beer that was either fucked up or forgotten about, blended it, and then put it in bottles where it likely won't carbonate but rather will be a flat, sweet, hot mess.

Eh, I've always liked Angel's Share, so it's worth a shot.

I would be interested in a bottle. I could send someone a couple bottles of my commercial beer, brewed at Westbrook!

I didnt bother going to the release since the price and likelyhood of flat beer was too high but I've gotten to try it and it really is pretty good, albeit flat. And to anyone that thinks it's going to be infected, that beer was in the barrels for several years already so if it's not sour/effed up now it probably wont ever be. Sorry I cant help anyone get a bottle, just saying that it's probably worth trying once at least.

It was brewery only and a case limit sell out. I didn't go either. No lining up at 6am for beer for me. A friend of mine who hoards insteads of trades got a case. He's suppose to bring one over one day. I could probably proxy a trade if someone really wanted one.

I saw a few of these bottles at City Wine in the gas lamp last week. They had a $80 price tag on them which made it very easy to pass on.

Yeah never mind. I don't have anything great to trade and don't want to pay that much. Maybe I'll stumble into one someday, if not I'll live.

I think they were $35 at the release. Not sure if that's out of the price range.

I'd probably pay that once to try it but not sure I could get anyone to sell me a bottle at cost plus shipping.

I would pay $35 plus shipping for a bottle. Or we could do a trade.
