3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at The brewery. Clear deep garnet, creamy beige head. Roasted malts and light sweet dates on the nose, would’ve only guessed it to be dark fruits without knowing they used dates. Flavor follows, has a bit more roast and coffee flavor. Not really getting dates anymore. Fairly bitter for the style, actually. Not much sweetness. Dry roasty burnt finish, bitterness peaked at a 4-5. Light to medium body, mod carbonation. OK.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the lost abbey. Clear reddish brown pour, with an off white head. Sweet malts, raisin, date, chocolate, and a bit doughy. Pretty tasty beer, but it won’t be my first choice among the lost abbey beers.
