3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
draft- real dark brown, yellow head, wild yeasty aroma, bannanas, cherrys. Sour taste, pretty decent, but not my favorite style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark brown, amber orange when held to light, beige head that fades quickly. Smells like Belgian yeast and caramel. A little tangy, fruity and spicy. Very smooth and slightly sweet with some dried fruit flavors on the finish; a hint of brandy. Slightly bitter with no noticeable hop aroma. Nice but a little short on flavor, especially compared to other Port/Lost Abbey products.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Caramel and candi sugar throughout. Dates and raisins also noted. No head or lacing. A bit too lively carbonation and a slight sour character. Brett? But, I don’t think it was intentional. A certain wheat character on the finish. Some good complexity and a decently made beer, but a little let down and expecting more from such an esteemed brewery.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy garnet with fine, long-lasting head. Aroma of figs, dates and light apricot. Light banana. Light caramel malt and alcohol. Thinnish smoke-laced body surprisingly lacking in sweetness. More banana and hearty bread flavor. Strangely spare, puckering finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a raisiny brown with no head and no visible carbonation. Nose is porty, raisins and prunes. Flavor is a blend of dried fruit, with notes of licorice and root beer. This was a pretty decent sipper. Thick and viscous, with a light brown sugar sweetness and a malty backdrop.

Shared by BBB63 before ’07 Dark Lord Day. Murky amber color with a foamy cream colored head. Dark sugar and ripe pit fruit nose. Flavors of plums, raisens, brown sugar, and some Belgian candi sugar. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from tap at the brewery. Huge diacetyl nose and flavor. Normally considered a deficiency, but I liked it because of the magnitude. Great lacing and head. Reddish color. Sweet malty and light bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This dark brown ale poured with a thin off-white head and a sweet malty aroma. There is a candy and raisin flavor typical to the trappist dubbel-style ales, although there is not the degree of complexity the monks have developed over the years. It’s pleasantly carbonated with a nice body. Overall, a pretty good approximation of a trappist ale.

Good ole Lost And Found. This is the bottles that I can get at most discriminating beer outlets in town and has become somewhat of a go-to ale when I am craving the delicious belgian candi sugar flavors with that delicious plum/prune/fruit backbone. I like. So should you.
