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 youíll 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.

[261-20070413] 1pt9.4floz (c/o HogTownHarry, w/ him, blankboy, jerc, mds, tupalev). Deep barrel wine-grape richness in the aroma with not unpleasant light plastic background notes. Hazy, brown orange body with a medium-lasting bubbly creamy off-white head. Tastes like sweet candied booze with light caramel and floral notes. Medium-full boozy body. Super alcohol with strange candy is an interesting blend.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2007
750ml bottle from bu11zeye. Aroma: Bready malt, candi sugar, spice, raisins, and belgian yeast. Appearance: Dark amber/orange in color and very hazy. Medium beige head was full, fizzy, and foamy with good retention. Good lacing. Flavor: Sweet bready malt with notes of caramel and candi sugar. Banana and spices, raisins and red wine. Some light floral notes into the finish. Finishes fairly dry with some malt and yeast carrying over. Palate: Medium bodied and creamy. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: Pretty good Dubbel. Lacked the deep flavor/aroma of the good Belgian examples, but was still a good beer.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2007
A lovely domestic example of a Belgian dubbel, more substantial and satisfying than Allagashís roughly comparable effort. I like the lively, fizzy mouthfeel, especially insofar as it doesnít compromise the robust flavors, which include brown sugar, sweet raisins, and some lovely bready notes. A bit of a tart finish from the yeast, this is a damn fine beer.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - APR 23, 2007
Bottled. Murkey dark amber coloured with a small head. Malty and sweet with notes of caramel, spices and syrup. Round and dry finish.

blankboy (6444) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2007
Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jerc, mabel, mds & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy orange-brown with an average size somewhat-lasting tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, fruit, Xmas spices, a little lactic -- the sweetness and spicyness is perfectly blended together. Flavourís yeasty with sweet malt, brown sugar, spices, some hops and a big bitter finish. Average bodied. Interesting, it didnít knock my socks off like it did my fellow tasters but I still found it to be a very good beer.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2007
Bottle from trade with kramer17801. Pours a hazy, orangish amber color with a fair size off white head. Aroma is pleasently sweet with all of the malts. Taste of caramel, spices and fermented fruit. No hint of alcohol that I could detect. Has a light yeasty finish. Very nice, easy to drink brew overall.

eaglefan538 (2925) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 20, 2007
Bottle shared, courtesy, slob. Poured a cloudy brown with reddish hues, beautiful tan head, great retention. Aroma was candied sugar, spices, light floral notes. The flavor was raisins, coriander, spice, yeast, breadiness, light cherry-plumby thing going on. Mouthfeel was creamy, spicey, zingy. A pretty nice dubbel. Thanks, Bert!

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2007
Pours a muddy red/brown with some yellow highlights and moderate head. Most things about this beer are better when youíve got all that sediment poured in the glass, including the aroma. Raisins are pretty noticable here, but thereís some light banana, some cloves and other spices, some caramel and candy sugar. Strong and totally inviting. Taste is sweet and earthy, some slight raisins at first, but quickly overtaken by some caramel brown sugar, tobacco, dirt/leaves, and persistant burnt toast dryness. The dryness on the tongue is a little off in the first glass, but with the cloudy glass is nice and well integrated in the profile. Finishes with more toast, light coffee, leaves and butterscotch. There still some effevescent yeast and fruit to brighten the flavor a bit, but you detext in the back of your nose and donít really taste it. Thatís fine by me. This is an earthier abbey and very mellow and well-rounded. If it didnít wow me from the start, by the end of the second glass, I realized how many things I like about this beer. Good stuff!

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2007
Pours a medium dark chestnut brown with medium brown head. Very nice fuity maly aroma. Very tasty beer with lots of fruit ranging from raison to cherry to peach. Lots of candy sugar. Good stuff.

sloth (2605) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 18, 2007
Large brown head, good retention and a nice lace. Brown color with a light red glow. Nose of caramel, raisins, light buttery notes with some faint citrus as well. Body is medium with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation, nice. Medium sweet malt flavors, caramel, raisiny, fruity, earthy woodsy notes. Finish is dry and fruity. A decent Dubbel. Thanks to FlacoAlto for this one.
