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.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2007
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.

jsquire (3752) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2007
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.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - MAY 11, 2007
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.

marcus (7671) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 11, 2007
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.

Bartzilla (574) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 11, 2007
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.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Pours a deep ruby color with a tan head. Aroma is malty sweet, with lots of sweet dark fruits, raisins, figs, plums. Flavor is sweet malts, with lots of sweet dark fruits, and a light bitter finish.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Pours a dark clear brown color, off white head. Aroma is strong belgian notes. Raisins and plums come to mind immediately. Flavor starts with vanilla, sweet with some lavender/floral notes. Sweet end with a nice body to it.

ElGaucho (2306) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2007
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.

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 2, 2007
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.
