3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 750ml bottle into tulip during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach it was hard to peg this tape-wrapped bottle. Dark red-brown in body with a small tan head that quickly settles to a thin ring. Some spotty lacing is left on the glass. Aroma is raisins, figs, plums, chocolate malt, yeast, and alcohol. Taste is strong dark fruit and caramel malt sweetness with a touch of cherry, light cocoa and spice bitterness, and alcohol on the swallow. Medium-plus body, syrupy thick texture, average to soft carbonation, alcohol and spice finish. I have read that newer bottles may be too carbonated, but think this bottle was aged some, so that may have affected the profile. I quite enjoyed this style-bending quad.

Very decent stout, but nothing impressive. As drinking along it gets better.

2014.03.15 - Lost Abbey Judgment Day - 750 ml bottle in motel clear plastic cup. Bottle seems to have a best before or bottled date but I’ll be damned if I can make it out.
Aroma: first impression: Belgian Dubbel. Less bready than 10 Commandments. 6/10
Appearance: Pours deep chestnut brown. Little if any red tones. Mostly opaque but a bit of light makes it through. A lot of carbonation, fully half the cup on each pour, and visible vigorous bubbles. Creamy caramel white head. 4/5
Taste: medium sweetness, raisins, a bit of earthy roast flavor as compared to 10 Commandments. Less overall sweetness. More balanced but less wow. Nice. 7/10.
Palate: medium body, sticky, lively, long finish. 4/5
Overall: Again, right up my alley. Belgian, raisins? That’s got me written all over it. Not AMAZING but darn good. Too bad I can’t get these back East without shipping. A bit better balanced than 10 Commandments. Enjoyable. 17/20

Yeasty and fruity with hints of booze. Main thing I picked up is the carb, which was nice because I was expecting a flat beer, this being Lost Abbey. Well balanced and a good showcase for the american version of the quad.

Pours a deep dark ominous black color without a distinct aroma. Taste is high in alcohol with a tinge of black licorice. The alcohol is hidden well in this beer. A slight plum flavor, with a good alcohol burn in the aftertaste.

Bottle poured into sniffer. Pours a dark opaque brown with light brown foamy head that quickly recedes to a ring. Sweet and funky slightly raisiny aroma. Smooth brown malt flavor with mild raisin undertones. Very good.
