COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A life worth living is full of discovery and we are reminded everywhere there is opportunity. All it takes is desire to seek out and find these things, these moments and everything in between. We brewed Lost and Found Abbey Ale to pay homage to the great monastic breweries of Belgium. Like us, we hope you’ll take the time to discover a beer that breathes aromas of figs, raisins and candied fruits. Please join us by raising your glass as we offer a toast to patience, perseverance, and all the things we have lost along the way and were somehow lucky enough to find once again.

From a 750mL Bottle. Mild pop upon un-corking the bottle. Pours a transparent, fiery black cherry color with a finger of creamy beige head. Impressive clarity; it’s like looking into one of those king marbles that appears to be black from a distance, but reveals a deep ruby color on close inspection. Head fizzles a bit quickly, leaving a blotchy layer of uneven sea suds floating aimlessly on top; a quick swirl of the glass sends the foam rebuilding in the right direction. Lots of raisin in the nose, along with some mild vanilla and dusty, woody yeast esters that have a subtle mace-like quality. Toasted chestnuts and creme brulee sugar. Intriguingly complex nose, but not overwhelming - patience is necessary for full appreciation. Medium bodied, creamy carbonated mouthfeel. Carbonation is a bit on the light side and could use a bit of a zip to help accentuate the spicy characters. Notes of shaved nutmeg and coconut shell start out on the palate, but fade with the carbonation, leaving a somewhat blander coating of thin raisin juice left sitting on the tongue. I want to say it has a fig like fruitiness, but it’s as if the fig spice flees with the carbonation, leaving a somewhat less interesting fruit character behind. Dry enough and not sweet, but far from being light and crisp. Finishes dark and leathery, with some chewy tobacco and oaky raisin skins left lingering on the palate.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Bottle via Bmartin08!! Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is raisins, prunes, plums, caramel. Flavor is figs, brown sugar, dried dark fruits, some chocolate, and some spice. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, sweet malty finish. This is a great brew, some alcohol warmth, and hoppy notes in the finish.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Corked bottle shared with Zinister. Thanks! Pours a solid tea-brown with a beige head. Deceptively active body. Yeasty raisin and plumb dominate the nose. Raisiny coffee dominates the flavors upon first sample; as it is allowed to warm, the beer exposes dark fruits (cherry, blackberry, and currant). Mouthfeel is a bit thin but the flavor is nonetheless spread nicely. A light Belgian style, for sure, but very nice.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Shared with KAggie97. Pours a murky, dirty brown. Thin tan head. Visable carbonation. Nice lacing. Nose of dark fruits and sugar...along with belgian yeast. Flavor is brown sugared coffee with good malt balance. A bit ashy on the finish to me. Good beer.

TURDFERGUSON (4042) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Bottle I bought in Bethlehem, PA on the way back from BCTC ’07. Also bought a 2003 WWS. Nice little store, but a little overpriced. 10.99 for a 22 of wipeout ipa. anyway, this was a tasty dubbel. Its been a while since I have had a good one and I have kind of been avoiding the style recently, well not avoiding it but not explicitly going after it. Lost and Found pours a dark chestnut with a small off white head. Good lacing . Nose is raisins, prunes, plums. figs, brown sugar, and candied fruits. Flavor is nice and malty, with some more brown sugar, a little coffee, and cocoa too. Nice brew, enjoyed with tasty shrimp and grits prepared by the world’s best chef, Wanda Moore Hunter.

A nice brown color. It took several tries but finally got a raisin taste out of it. Very well done.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Bottle. Pours red brown with a nice off-white head on top. Aroma is full of dark fruits, raisins, figs, candied fruits, and brown sugar. The beer hides the alcohol content pretty easily. A very nice beer to have as a night cap.

Cobra (1100) - - JUL 22, 2007
750 ml. brown, Belgian style bottle. Corked & caged. No freshness date. Maybe not the freshest sample because it has very little carbonation to it, and it tastes kind of weird. Aromas are of cardboard, some dried fruits, funky Brett, burnt cookies. Flavors are metallic mostly. Has a nasty aftertaste.
