Is this supposed to be flat? Winey, probably because of the uncarbonated fill. Thick and sweet: malt, raisins, berries, chocolate. I would like a carbonated version.

RAISINS!!!! Seriously, from nose to flavor, they’re there. Dark fruits, boozy, a real sipper. Love me a good Belgian style quad.

Served 38-40 degrees, def too cold so I’m trying to slow sip. Sips with a complex blend of dark fruit. Plums, cherries, alc, and some spicy yeasty flavors, molasses. Very smooth and easy drinking quad. I would love to get a bottle of this to compare to the draught.

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.

75cl bottle @ the 3rd Shrewsbury Bottle share, courtesy of Simon F. This pretty much nailed the night for us. Big caramel aroma with dark fruits.. taste really packs a punch with those raisins shining through alongside some lovely moist fruit cake. Very nice indeed.

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.
