The aroma consists of caramel, chocolate, plum, raisin, and moderate alcohol. It pours a muddy orangish-brown with a small tightly bubbled beige head. The flavor starts with chocolate, plum, and raisin with some faint smokiness in the background. It finishes somewhat sweet with notes of candi sugar, light spice, and faint alcohol. Looks like I dig this more than most.

750 ml bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a hazy brown color with a one finger thick light tan head which settles to a film that lasts to the bottom of the glass. Nice lacing. Aroma is dark malt, spice, and light esters. Flavor is malt, light licorice and esters. Very smooth and no lingering aftertaste. Medium body. A very nice beer.

BCTC 2007. Thou shalt have a partly cloudy ruby body with a medium tan head. Thou shalt taste dried dark fuits (raisins, figs, dates, plums). Thou shalt back fruity taste with tobacco leaves and some chocolate. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife before 3rd bottle. Thou shalt be full bodied with lively carbonation. Thou shalt be sweet with brown-sugar flavour. Thou shalt contain dessert cake spices. Thou shalt not steal beer recipes but can nonetheless be reminiscent of beloved Trois-Pistoles. Thou shalt not commit adultery before 5th bottle. Honor thy Beer and Brewer.

Pours a dark brown, with purple maroon hues and a smallish light tan head. Alot of clove, and spices in the nose. Some nutmeg, maybe coriander were there too. Gave it almost a minty persona. The flavor is kinda the same, very malty, some dark fruits, but the various array of spices played a big role in how it tastes too. Very sharp on the palate. Quite an interesting brew. I can taste the Brett to start to kick in, but its not full yet. I’ll revisit this when it does fully take effect.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Bottle sampled from Capones. Pours clear deep brown with a decent size light tan head. Aroma of raisins, spices, sweetness, much like Judgement day. The flavor is of course raisins, alcohol, spices, caramel, and some bitter hoppiness (like a lighter version of Judgement day). Good brew.

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Deep brown pour with 2-finger khaki head and great lasting lacing. The aroma is incredible; very much like Westy 12 and Rocheforte 10, with caramel malt, brown sugar, funky yeast, spices including cinnamon and nutmeg, raisins, and floral notes. Very complex aroma. The taste had notes of roasty dark malt, figs, raisins, dark chocolate, brown sugar, funky yeast, and spices. The palate is complex, very well balanced, pretty hefty, and very lively, with the carbonation being on the high side, and it all worked very well, making this a world class brew that every beer lover should seek out.

Indra (2568) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 31, 2007
750ml bottle. Interesting aroma, sweet and malty along with some apparent raisin and fig, and a dose of milky chocolate and toffee along with touches of musty orange in the background, presumably from the yeast. Dark sugars abound. Murky rusty red-brown color with a sparse head. Flavor profile is complex, fruity and sweet, with a blend of raisin and other dried fruits, faint bitterness and tartness, with some light spiciness, dusty cocoa and a gentle alcohol presence. Exceedingly smooth on the palate and full-bodied. This is some nice stuff.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a nice off-white head. Aroma is full of dark fruits, raisins, spices (including cinnamon and nutmeg), plum, and brown sugar. Flavor is full of dark fruits and raisins primarily. The beer has a nice smooth palate with alcohol pretty well hidden. The beer finishes with the spices from the nose. Another enjoyable beer from Lost Abbey.

Bottle courtesy of SDbruboy, thanks once again Cliff! Pours a deep brown, fairly clear with a medium sized light brown, offwhite head that lasts, good lacing. Nose is raisiny, lightly sweet malts, a little doughy, beady. Nice soft carbonation, slick on the palate. Dark fruity flavors, raisins, maybe some butterscotch, toffee notes. nicely caramelly and lightly spicey, grainy malt, bready. A nice flavor profile. Lightly sweet fruity finish. Did,nt pick up on the brett though. Thanks Cliff!
