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.

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.

Bottle brought back from California by McBeer and shared during Dark Lord Day 2007. Subtle aroma. Dark reddish amber with a nice tan head. Barrel aged character. Has a backbone. Pretty good. Not outstanding but has enough oomph to keep it interesting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This offering from The Lost Abbey pours a clear auburn with small carbonation bubbles throughout that leave a thick tan head that quickly disappears. The aroma is funky, sour, horse blanket, caramel, vanilla, some pepper, and nice herbal spices throughout the nose. The taste starts sweet upfront, caramel, malt bomb, dark pitted fruit, plums, raisins, followed by a sour unripened twang in the finish. This overall beer is good, a little alcohal strong for 7% that could mellow possible with age.
