4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lost Abbey bottling. Just outstanding! Starts almost like a red wine, acid up front, nice oak character. Dark fruit, brown sugar aroma. Very low carbonation level but it works. Very complex and enjoyable.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep brown, with some brilliant reddish tinges. Almost no head, slight tan. Funky earthy nose, some light caramel, light roasted coffee bean. Fairly strong berry. Pretty strongly tart, underlying subtle back of the mouth sweetness. Heavier body, reasonably upfront alcohol, very oily, coats the palate. Long finish, tart. Excellent.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy, reddish-brown with a smallish tan head and oily lace. Pleasant aromas of cherry, oak, vanilla, raisins, white wine grape and mild funk. Dark fruit sweetness up front becomes a mild tartness as cherries and blackberries mix with the oak and vanilla. Full body, little carbonation, slick mouthfeel and a lingering dark fruit sweetness in the finish.
