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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2007
Bottle: Muddy brown, quite dirty, caramel highlights, large light beige foamy head, fairly sticky lacing.   Big bready malty nose, slight pale fruit skin, along with raisins, figs, and dates.   Even though its only 7%, it seems like there is a bit of alcohol there.   Subtle notes of caramel and toffee.   Extremely bready on the tongue, warming for a 7% brew.   Aformentioned dark pitted fruit, but mainly a strong breadiness with a minor spiced aspect.   Seems to be a little bit of alcohol that is noticeable.   Almost seems its higher than whats stated on the bottle.   Wow, this one really is meaty!   Moderatey body, heavy mouthfeel.   Figgy finish, trailering alcohol, remains heavily breaded.   This is one malty mo-fo.   Very yeasty too.   Well built, but quite heavy.   T’was somewhat sweet, but towards the end it gets drier and a little salty like.   Tiz best to share a 750ml with someone as this one here drinks like a meal!   Thanks Tad for the bottle!

shadey (1977) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2007
Pour is dark red and with good head. Well carbonated. Muted fruity aroma. Smooth well developed flavor and the body is just about right if a bit over-carbonated. Quality dubbel.

billism (44) - Missouri City, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2007
On tap at Stone Brewery in Escondido, CA. Pours a deep reddish brown. The banana esters come through strong but not too strong. Wonderful aroma of other ripe fruits. Wonderful taste to match. Sweet taste all teh way through. Smooth palate with an after-taste that leaves me wanting more. One of my favorites. I just wish I bought some bottles of it when I was in CA.

DirtyMartini (194) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 28, 2007
solid, but not spectacular dubbel. aroma of yeast, sugar with some spice. flavor of dried fruit, caramel malt, with some yeast and spice. medium body, maybe slightly overcarbonated. the taste seemed a litttle sharp from the carbonation. not bad, but the belgians have nothing to worry about.
