4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle courtesy of my SD hookup. This was one of my favorites. Murky amber pour with an off whitehead. Cuvee de Tommy nose. A little over carbonated, but delicious. Sour berry and caramel notes with peach undertones. Good body....

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells of soured fruit, green peppers, oak barrels, and light manure. Oaky and really sour as cherries and barrel character storm my taste buds. Really growing on me as it warms.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!Ö Cloudy, dark, burnt orange pour with a quickly-dissipating white head. Aromatic standouts are caramel, dark grapes and a mellow note of bourbon. Full-bodied with pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is fruity, tart, vinous and oaken with loads of purple grapes. Finishes tangy, warm, tongue-numbing and then dry. Amazingly complex and world class!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pours with an amber body and with a bit of haze and supporting a tan head of foam. The modest aroma has some spicy yeast and a funky goodness thatís almost barnyard wet horse blanket yumminess. Alright, in my book this is starting out nice as I love the barnyard funky smell. The taste is smooth as well as refreshing and crisp with a mix of sweet apple esters and then moving quickly into lime and an earthy nearly barnyard funkiness and tartness. Darn, I like the balance and depth of this. Solid!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at Santa Cruz boxset tasting. Warming acetic acidity, curacao orange liqueur, blood orange, not really very prominent with the peach, big peppery alcohol finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lost Abbey track beer tasting.
The beer is reminiscent of cream soda with a thin, rapidly fading head. The aroma offers booze, oak, toffee, fruit, cherries, leather. The flavor is both sour and tart. Cherries up front, with oak and booze lingering in the finish. I like the aroma a bit better than the flavor. Alcohol presence is bold, asserting itself immediately and forcing itself upon my palate. Tannic finish. Hard to pick out peaches. Medium to full bodied with prickly carbonation. Overall, this was ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Track tasting. Poured a cloudy red/brown color, vibrant and fuzzy tan head fizzled away quickly. The nose has some sweetness as well as notes of some light vanilla bourbon. Peaches and sour cherries notes and a touch of wood. There is certainly a boozy quality to this one.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2012 Sample from bottle, thanks to my beerpal Olav, who brought it from San Diego. ABV is 12.5%. Pitch black colour, low tan head. Intense and lovely aroma - sweetish, vinous, oaky and roasty. Sweet and sour flavour, roasty and lemony notes, lighter body than expected.
