Split a 750ml bottle of this. Poured a dark brown, slightly ruby color with a off-white head. Aroma was plenty of dark fruit notes, sweet malts, brown sugar character. Flavor had figs, touch of sweet raisins. A touch dry, but not overpowering of a beer here. Enjoyed a bunch.

smells brett (when opening bottle), raisins, warmth, dried fruits. taste is full bodied, well carbonated (maybe a tad too much?). Lingering warmth, oil, dryness in aftertaste. Overall,well made. early 2012 vintage

Bottle. Murky brown pour with an off white head. Raisin and caramel malt aromas. All kinds of spices, caramel malts, raisins, honey, and some light woody notes. Good body, good mouthfeel, and carbonation.

Great Belgian offering from Lost Abbey. Tons of dark fruit & chocolate notes. Perfect balance of malt sweetness and Belgian yeast character. I don't get alot of Brett character, but there is a delicate note of of some tart & funk, probably just from the dark fruit character of the beer.

On tap at Lost Abbey. Pours brown-black with thick off white head that leaves plenty of lace. Root beer and licorice on the nose. Root beer!
Thick full-bodied palate. Well balanced sweetness with a spicy undertone. They say there are raisins in there and I can believe it but it is subtle. Awesome Belgian-Style dark farmhouse beer.

Poured from a 2012 bottle into a 12 oz tulip glass. Pours a nice hazy dark brown color with a light tan frothy head that lasts a good while. Aroma is nice and sweet with ester notes with dark fruit, almost tart. Flavor is bitter sweet with notes of dark fruit, banana’s, and alcohol on the back end. Mouthfeel is medium with above average carbonation. I think i like this beer colder surprisingly but overall this was a great beer.
