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.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - APR 16, 2007
Bottled sample. Nice copper color to this one, with lots of carbonation. Sweet, with plenty of dark fruit and malt, very sweet on the lips. very nice drinker, alcohol is well hidden. By trying this beer, I’ll return to rating this style more, as I enjoy it alot!

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2007
Bottle sampled on 12/2/06: Pours a transparent deep copper with an airy, light tan head. Aroma of sweet dark biscuity Belgian malt with some toasty caramel and authentic yeasty character. Sweet, dark caramely malty flavor has nice complexity and a full bready body. Well-balanced, very authentic and enjoyable.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 15, 2007
soft raisins and plums nose with a bit of molasses and candi sugar. White pepper dances with dark cognac soaked fruits and a touch of nuts on the palate. Nice ripe fruit and spice finish.

rajendra82 (947) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - APR 14, 2007
The beer arrived in a 750 ml. Corked and caged bomber, and looked brownish orange in color when poured. The head atop it was beige, a little shy of two finger thick, and craggy. The smell was lighter than I was expecting, with a floral and soured fruit profile. The taste was sweet and rummy, and not quite as dry as the true Belgian examples I’ve sampled before. The carbonation was prickly in the mouth as result of the thinner than normal body, and the alcohol was also quite evident. Despite some of these flaws making this a little abnormal for the style, I found it was an overall enjoyable beer.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2007
Bottle. Brown body with a moderate beige head that fades. (3+) Mildly yeasty Belgian aroma, light sweet fruit, mild caramel. Tangy fruit melds with the yeast in the flavour, light caramel malt. Fruity yeast emerges even more as it warms. Medium palate. Medium palate (3+). This is quite lovely, but I found myself wanting the caramel and malt to be just a touch more assertive. Dangerously drinkable.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2007
Bottle (750ml). Shared with blankboy, jerc, mabel, mds and tupalev - my bottle via trade with DarkElf - DarkElf+ Fest ’07!!. Cloudy fairly deep orange/brown, small creamy head. Sweet, spicy and yeasty aroma - lactic, with some sweet floral hop overtones. Taste - really nice - lactose, soft sweet spice, confectioners sugary malt, very smooth, not much alcohol presence, slight sharp bitterness in the finish. Average body, somewhat syrupy, increasing spice funkiness - really soft and lovely and spicy - well done!

zathrus13 (1704) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2007
Pours cloudy brown, with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, malt, spices, and some nuts. Flavor is fruit, yeast, nuts, spices, and malt. Body is a little too thin. It falls just short of being really special...a little too dry and thin.

JorisPPattyn (7818) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2007
Fully opaque brown under short-lived brown-yellow head. Creamy rich nose, even whiffs of blue cheese. Burnt malts and roasted nuts (Pecan/Brasil/...) Som dark candy sugar. Don’t get raisins in the nose, but some alcohol & higher alcohols. Dry dark beer, woody, very malty with overtones of roasted & burnt malts. Quite some sweetness in the basis, but always under the heavy roasted notes. Some musky, animal-like flavour mixing in. Nutty as well, again. Very well bodied. Nice, and original... not a real drinking beer, however - bit too potent. I find it strange to find so few fruity elements in it, as it seems to have been the object. Thanks to brewboy, anyway!

hapjydeuce (926) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2007 I really liked this dubbel from Port Brewing. had it twice now, and its good stuff. dark brown pour with amber edges and an off-white head with nice lacing. aroma of raisins, caramel, and darker fruits. great malty chewiness in the body with hints of banana and finishing with yeast notes that end with sweet and sour sugary flavors before the alcohol finish. nice!
