BOSSbrewer (2513) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 10, 2015
On tap at the source. Pours brown with a thin mocha head. Aroma is spicy sage. Yeasty. Yuck. Spices ruin this otherwise good beer. Oh well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rosenbergh (8285) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2015
Draught at the Lost Abbey, San Marcos, CA. Dark reddish brown colour with a small tan head. Spices, yeast, dark fruits, malt and sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is toasted malt, sugary sweetness, dark fruits, a hint of coffee and some bitterness. Complex and tasty. A bit too sweet but otherwise excellent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Tap) Beautiful dark fruity dry flavor. Has some bitter aftertaste which I think detracts. But quite good.

freretoc (1074) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 16, 2015
#1000 sur Ratebeer, Bue en bouteille de 75cl à la brasserie, couleur café un peu passé, peu de mousse et effervescence importante. Nez caramel et pruneau, en bouche grosse attaque sur le sucre candy et le caramel continuité sur le grillé et le cherry, excellente.

Renobob (1138) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 15, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Couleur marron foncé trouble. Nez café, caramel, pruneau. Au palais, belle corpulence au début, effervescence très agréable fines bulles, arômes de pruneau, alcool, café sur la fin. S'éteint rapidement en bouche, finale moins intéressante. Beau produit.

VictorStr (1623) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2015
Väldigt fruktig i aromen, en hel del jäst. Smaken lite spretig. Kroppen oväntat lätt på tanke på ABVn

SinH4 (744) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 28, 2015
2013 vintage. Dark brown color with nice head. Spicy aroma with rosemary and other spices, raisins as well. Taste is full, spicy, rosemary, berries, and a coffee finish with a brilliant aftertaste. Even a hint of Jägermeister (probably the spices) First time I am not disappointed by one of Lost Abbey?s super-well-known brews.
