2008 bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with thick light tan head, lots of lacing and retention. Not quite the pop or gush I was expecting, but it is definitely not light in carbonation. Aroma of belgian yeast, brett, dark dried fruits, spices, chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavor matches well with an additional nutty character and an nice complementary sour kick to a belgian dark that I actually really loved. This is one hell of a beer that I was expecting to not like so much. 2 years must make this the perfect age. If this gets better, I really need another damn bottle.

#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 (1085) - 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 (1564) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2015
Väldigt fruktig i aromen, en hel del jäst. Smaken lite spretig. Kroppen oväntat lätt på tanke på ABVn

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.

75cl bottle shared with friend. Big dark fruity aroma with yeasty notes, sweet malts, dried plums and some spice. Complex. Flavour is sweet malty, yeast, dark fruits and brett! It really well balanced and the flavours come together very nicely.

Perfect ten for Ten Commandments. All kinds of delicious aromas perking through, from funk to cinnamon to lemon peal to Belgian candy sugar. Flavor is equally as complex. To much to list ,you will not be disappointed in this purchase.

Tap at brewery. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is oak, fig, dates, spicy yeast esters, bready malts, and faint raisins. Flavor is rich malt base, tons of dark fruit esters, crazy yeast esters, and a dry, oak finish. Medium/full body and medium carbonation.

Bottle 750 ml. Pours a darkest mahogany/brown color, with frothy, tan head foam that diminished slowly. The nose started with a hint of candy cane mintiness that could come from the rosemary influence, then proceeded with sweetness, and dark fruit as raisin & plum. Medium to full bodied, with a high carbonation. The taste has dark fruit flavor, added some tartness & alcohol warmth. Aftertaste is liquirish and mintiness, lingers! A quad with a lot of different tastes, maybe to much... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
