She’s Ripe, Crisp, Lively, VInous and Alcohol Heavy. The richness of the dark malt and ash give a late roastiness.

BOLTZ7555 (2854) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2008
Dark rusted brew with burnt orange notes around the edges and a decent 1/4 inch head. This beer has a sweet candied nose and flavors of dark fruit, brown sugar, and alcohol. The brett comes through a bit in the finish but isn’t as prominent as in other beers I’ve sampled. Good beer but not memorable.

Dorwart (2409) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2008
About a 3/4 inch head of fine and creamy bubbles. Light carbonation. Nice roasted grain aroma with some chocolate, raisins, plums and a bit of cinnamon. Dark mahagony brown in color. Semi sweet flavor with more raisins, spices and dark roasted malts. Light alcohol presence late swallow. The flavors meld together very well. Creamy and buttery on the palate. Finishes silky smooth with a lingering alcohol warming and strong malt presence. A darn good belgian strong.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle. Interesting beer. Aroma of plums, raisins, cinnamon, rose petals. Couldn’t detect any brett. Pours a dark, thick amber/purple with some copper accents around the edges. More tartness on the palate than on the nose for sure. Plenty of dark, alcohol soaked fruits. Plums and raisins abound. Dark, candied malt. Tart cherry skin. Rich and creamy with a buttery oiliness on the tongue. Finishes with a lasting yeasty tartness and dryness. Thanks Jonathan!

Lots of raisins in there, i think 10% of the ingredients. Muddy dark looking with soapy head. SOur in the finish. Lots of lace. ALcohol in the nose. Nice caramel, sugar, dark fruit, rum-ness.

AmEricanbrew (6172) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 8, 2008
Fiery red/mahogany color with a tan head. Big malty raison aroma with some smoke, plums, and alcohol. Smooth taste is classic belgian strong dark with earthy, yeasty pit fruits and spices. Sweet but not overly so. Very good beer here. 11187

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2008
Aroma of butterscotch, caramel and malt, deep copper, pours a small toffee head. Rich malty taste, pit fruits, tangy, buttery texture, very well balanced, luscious sweetness, fine bitterness too. Wonderful! "Thou shall not "...drink this beer quickly.

elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Thanks to Dragonstout. Pours a light brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is mostly cotton candy. Tastes of dark sweet fruits, Belgian yeast, vanilla, a little brown sugar. Finishes with a sticky palate, yet the sweetness is not overwhelming. Rather enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2009 Tasting, courtesy of Fordest’s event. Beer #12. Rerate on 4-30 immediately after root canal. Translucent brown pour with a small tan head. Nose with dark fruits and cola. The flavor is rich with vanilla and murky dark fruits that suggest something sinister is going on here. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The finish is long with lingering raisins and sugar cane. Overall: Another winner from the folks at Lost Abbey. Re-rate note: Drank a bottle that had a year of age on it and I absolutely loved it. Upping my rating by a point.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Brown in color this poured a thin white/tan head that left little lacing. There were aromas of chocolate, fresh figs, orange zest, cinnamon sticks and a touch of bretty funk. The palate showed these darker flavors but had plenty of balancing acid. In fact, there was great balance in this beer from start to end. The flavors are fresh and finish with bitter chocolate. A very nice bottle to sit back enjoy over the night.
