Lost Abbey Takes The Highway To Hell with Track #6

The sixth entry in Lost Abbey’s Ultimate Box Set releases Saturday.  An ode to AC/DC’s 1979 hit Highway To Hell.    Track #6 is a blend of 2009 Bourbon Angel’s Share, and Brandy Barrel Aged Serpent’s Stout.  This hellish blend clocks in at 14.3% ABV.

Why is this blend unique?  Well, it’s reversed.

For the past two years The Lost Abbey has released a winter barrel aged blended strong ale. This amazing blend of beer has focused on a marriage between Bourbon Barrel Aged Serpents Stout and Brandy Barrel Aged Angel’s Share. We believe it’s one of the most amazing barrel releases we do each fall.

But in the spirit of old recordings and records I started thinking what would happen if we played this one in reverse? Would we hear the Demon himself on the record? So with that, we flipped the blend on its ears and spun it backwards. The result is a blend of Brandy Barrel Aged Serpent’s Stout and some Bourbon Barrel Aged Angel’s Share.

It’s still an epic struggle between good and evil, only this time we slowed it down and played it in reverse.
