COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

p1meatloaf (252) - 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 (14775) - 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 isnít 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 itís well worth a retry. Well, it is anyway. 141220

phaleslu (7224) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle shared by brew3crew - thanks again, Jason! Pours a hazy brown color with a small tan head. Notes of very mild sour plum and cherry, vanilla, toffee, leather, tobacco, oak, red wine, raisin, brown sugar, and toast. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, vinous mouthfeel. Tasty, but seems a little restrained.

DrSilverworm (8000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2014
12.7oz bottle, split with brew3crew and co. Wonderful red vinous character and cream in the nose, some vanilla. Dark fruit in the flavor, mild spiciness, good mild wood. Mildly hazy red color, thin off-white ring of head, loose bits of lace. Some interesting spice in this, like cardamom? I have no idea. Seeing the tobacco. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Lightly slick. Moderate sweet taste, light satisfying bit of sour, and a nice warmth on the back end. Really liked this one. Super complex, interesting, and tasty.

UDBeernut (2010) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle from merc, thanks for bringing this one. Pours brown, minimal head. Strong bourbon nose. Lightly soured, bourbon is upfront. Slightly vinous from the red wine. The wine I think detracts from this one. Overall not too shabby. Light carbonation to help this one chug down the double mainline.
