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.

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.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pours a deep reddish-brown. Smells of raisins and dried fruit. Mildly sweet, almost thick body. Good example of a dubbel.

jason (1690) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2007
UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 750ml bottle. Made a loud popping sound when the corked was pulled. Poured a red body with nice head. Aroma is bubblegum, yeast, sugar and spices. Flavor is sweet and somewhat sticky with a very small amount of carbonation. This need to warm up for quite awhile before it started to become a decent beer. Pretty good but was disappointed in this batch.

DocLock (8244) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. This one was not carbonated at all. Hazy deep ruby pour with aroma of pumperkickly caramel malt, banana, funky yeast, some brown sugar, prune, oaky cognac, cheddar cheese, spices. Tastes caramel malty, with cabernet, funky cheesy yeast notes, port, cherry, oaky cognac, and bourbon. It came off like a non-carbonated cross between Sly Fox Ichor and Avery 13, with a dash of Stone 666.

undsioux7 (827) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2007
bottle. Have to start out by saying this is a cool bottle with a really cool cork. The taste is very belgian style which I am still trying to develop a pallete for. I am just having trouble getting over the amount of carbonation in these styles. Complex, but cleaner then other belgians.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Clear rich mahogany color with absolutely no head. (?) Aroma of earth, dark fruits and toffee. Medium body. Slightly sticky. Flavor is medium sweet. Flat carbonation. It seems like this bottle lost its carbonation somewhere.

TheBeerGod (5441) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Bottle. Corked and caged 750mL. Pours a bubbly mahogany. Muddied clarity. Nose is dusty earth cob-webby yeast, dark fruits, and soft caramel. Taste is mostly bittersweet and has some under-ripened dark fruit flavors. Some earthy flavors, Belgian yeast, flowers, and dusty books round out the flavor. Body is very bubbly but still chewy. Lots of burping throughout this bottle. Finishes with more dark fruits, bit sweeter maltiness, big yeast and floral notes and softer earthen flavors. Nice!

2006 bottle drunk on 2/3/07
Terrific presentation. Deep auburn-tinted mahogany body shows a medium to medium-high clarity, leaving the unfiltered sediment behind. Beige head is large, rocky and well-retained, leading to much lacing down the glass.
Light phenols, dark fruit esters and gentle, sweet, pale malts all come off very subtley, as the barest hint of roast (chocolate malt) creeps in on the edges. A fair amount of breadiness and a definite hard candy-like feel from the crystal malt, which works against the softness, but gives light (and dry) toffee/caramel notes that seem apt for the style. I don’t get much raisin, neither from the actual raisins nor the special B, but that’s fine, as there shouldnt be a prominent note of it anyways. Rather, it is all much more homogenous, with prunes, raisins, and date notes all blending together to give a stickiness that also helps keep the crystal malt from creating too hard an aroma. Black pepper phenolics and just a brushstroke of clove/banana dot the finish, while a touch of alcohol heat is notable upon warming. I really like the grain bill here, though I don’t usually like crystal malts. But they add enough assertiveness to what would otherwise be too soft and possibly mushy.
Concord grapes, chocolate-covered cherries and vanilla cream-like malt sweetness all burst forth in the flavor and then scatter, leaving light peppery phenols, dry crystal malt and hints of roast. Really nice attenuation, being lightly sweet, and very chewy, but also dry enough to be able to drink it quite quenchingly. Yeast dosent pump out much clove, fusel or bananas, which is always appreciated and the carbonation is very tight and engaging. Piquant dark fruits stick to the palate and linger on the finish, being contrasted to black pepper-like dryness and dry toffee/caramel notes. Very complex dubbel. I really like the chewiness and almost waxy-smooth yeast/crystal malt synergy combined with the fruity special b. Reminds me, in some ways, of Westy 8 (though the overall flavors are much different). Maybe a bit on the sweet side overall.

This was one of the sweetest Belgium beers I ever had, on tap at Solena Beach. I declined a bottle purchase. It is amber red with lots of lace, very fresh. Fresh yeast aroma. WIll it get less candy after ageing? That would help. Good body, but only sweetness dominates and it’s cloying.

Courtesy of FlacoAlto! Thanks! Pours a dark red. smells of dark fruits and yeast. Good medium bodied dubbel, slight alcohol hint, highly carbonated. Very good.
