Another epic blend of beers not widely seen out side our tasting bar. The base for Track #4 starts off as two freshly emptied barrels which were to be part of our Veritas 009 blend. To these barrels we have married two French Oak red wine barrels that have been harboring Hot Rocks Lager for nearly two years. The base beer sports a deep black color with crimson highlights. Flavors of leather, tobacco and a wine like jammy quality were developed as the base beer. The addition of Hot Rocks Lager aged in Wine barrels brings a strain of Brettanomyces not normally found in our beers (wine strain we found in the barrels as we did not inoculate them here at the brewery). As is our hope for all these blends, the sum of all the parts has yielded great results. Perhaps one of the more subtle yet harmonious blends to date for our brewers, this one promises to deliver another great Lost Abbey experience.

Bottle. Dark brown / black pour with a tan head. Cherry and lager yeast notes. A strange combination with ended up being a little too far on the lager side for my taste.

gEUS (1538) - Linden, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2015
bottle at home. Pours dark amber with a small light beige head. Aroma of coffee roast, dark chocolate, dark forest fruits, burns a bit of the alcohol. Medium palate, sour, alcohol glow, taste of bitter chocolate and bitter coffee roast. More of a sour porter than a red-brown.

Medium to full body with a sticky tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy fruit sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration.

p1meatloaf (256) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2015
375 ml purchased more than a year ago. Nose is balanced cherries leather tobacco and hints of light funk. Taste is mostly a pretty clean dark lightly soured brown with cherries but there is an extra depth in there as it warmed up that put this beer way up there for me. Acidity cherries and malts came forward.

yngwie (15605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. A flat one, dark brown in color and clear. The aroma is sourish and lightly vinegarish, with oak notes, leather, tobacco and roasted malts. Some alcohol too, which isn’t surprising. Rather flat on the palate, full-bodied and warming, quite dry. Roasted malts, some chocolate hints, leather and some vinegar. Lasting finish that contains enough warmth to really calm you down. Pretty wonderful this one, vinous and tasteful. Could use some carbonation, else it’s well worth a retry. Well, it is anyway. 141220
