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.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2006
From a caged corked 750 ml. bottle with a blurb on the back label, no bottling/freshness date, sampled at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Poured a reddish dubbel brown with a fluffy, foamy pale tan head that settled into a thin lacing, minimal amount of laced sticking. Aromas of clove, banana and bubblegum, chocolate covered caramel, sugary, and a light dark fruitiness. Good moderate carbonation and a crisp, dryish, velvety smooth medium bodied mouthfeel. Delicious dubbel taste, clove, a light banana bubble gum, dark, brown candied sugar, roasted chocolate malts with a touch of caramel toffee, a subtle raisin, figs fruitiness, a light bready graininess, a very slight alcohol flavor towards the end, the alcohol is also slowly warming in the palate, and a dry, yeasty, spicy, semi-sweet malty finish. An excellent dubbel, easy, smooth drinkability, actually dangerously quaffable, a must try.

mds (2209) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2006
Bottle. Murky brown-red with a small sudsy white head. Dark caramel sugars and raisin aroma. Alcohol is characteristic of the flavour as well as sugar and sweet malt. There are also some toasted/burnt caramel notes. Pretty good.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2006
Bottle from cquiroga, sampled with badnewsbeers. Fiery orange-brown body, thin tan head, strong carbonation. Aroma of toffee and toast with big esters, including clove and cinnamon. Floral, with notes of sweet fruit juice. The strongest characteristic of the body is its intense, sharp carbonation, which makes each sip feel like the beer is foaming up. But, what a beer. Rich complexity imparted by plum, toast, chalky esters (clove, etc.), cinnamon, and chocolate. Warming alcohol is present and adds to the intrigue. This is a top-notch Dubbel.

BeerandBlues2 (9693) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2006
750 mL bottle from FlacoAlto. Pours sparkling tawny with a fizzy light brown head, somewhat diminishing, fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, caramel, meal), light hops (grass), average yeast (earth) with notes of cardboard, honey and apple. Average duration, moderate sweetness, acidity and bitterness; roasted caramel malt, earthy yeast, fragrant hop and alcohol flavor, figs, dark candied fruit notes. Full bodied, lively carbonation, sticky texture and a metallic-bitter finish.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - DEC 25, 2006
750ml bottle, purchased during the summer at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA, before it was available all over SD. Christmas Day Drinking with a pal, bottle 2. Pours opaque cloudy brown with a thing white head. Aroma has hints of sugar and dried fruit. The taste is sweet and full bodied with a nice bit of dried fruit. Really quite tasty.

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2006
Bottled at Chuck’s thanks to Matt! Poured a deep caramel/chocolate with a darker middle and a ring of off-white head. Nose was of dark fruits and raisins.. some alcohol and oxidation notes too. Flavor was heavier with rich caramel and toffee notes.. grainy alcohol at the edges and finish.. lesser dark fruit than the aroma. Tart and alcohol feel on the palate detracted from the drink a bit.. a little flat. Solid brew, but mild tweaking could make it great.

sersdf (1015) - chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2006
rating 500. rich cherry wood color. opaque and thick-looking. aroma takes me straight back to belgium. super candi sugar aroma. fruit + figgy flavor. tiny tiny bit thin. a bit overcarbonated as well. actually a surprising amount of alcohol character for 7% but it complements it well.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 22, 2006
Bottle from BevMo. Pours a very deep dark ruby color. Has a sizable tan head. Slightly sweet yeasty aromas, along with some earthy/dusty notes. Very rich dark fruit flavors right up front. A fair amount of yeastiness. Really smooth, flavorful dubbel. More earthy and less sweet than most dubbels I’ve tried.
