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.

Appears a dark amber with red edges when held to the light. The off white head slowly fades into a mild cap. Streaky lacing is left around the glass. Smell is of raisins, caramel, rum, vanilla, nougat, ripe fruit, brown sugar, with a nutty finish. Taste is of the same as the aromas with brown sugar, nuts, caramel standing out to make for a very nice flavor. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, boozy, rummy raisins, caramel, light cocoa, along with lightly smoked meat grazing along the tongue.

This beer is UNBELIEVABLY GOOD! 750 mL bottle, corked and caged, poured into a tulip glass. Pours a deep amber color, thick pillowy head. Lacing covers the entire top of the beer. First sip starts with a slight bitter hoppiness, then gives way to a rich...almost Belgian flavor. Notes of raisin, vanilla, caramel, nuts, coffee. I canít say enough good things about this beer. This is my first try...definitely wonít be my last.

Dark ruby red color with a big foamy head. Aroma of raisins and candy sugars. Sweet malt flavor with spicy raisin.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2009 In short: Intense Dubbel. Rich nutty/fruity body and powerful hopping. One of my favourite of the style.
How: Bottle, 750ml, various aging (little variation), this rating for a 6+ months old bottle
The look: Cloudy golden-brown body with a medium beige head
In long: Strong nutty and caramel nose with also quite a bit of resinous hops. Taste is like eating one of those grocery store bags of mix stuff (nuts, raisins, dried fruits) covered by rich caramel. Some earthy notes. The intense citric and resinous hops really sets it apart from most dubbels. So tasty that you want to drink it slowy. Body is just more decadent as a big \barley wine. Dubbels donít get much better than that. I got a lot of satisfaction from the Lost & Found, but still no sign of my missing gloves.

stimulus (86) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a New Belgium globe glass. A: Smells just like raisins, with a bit of molasses, but not too much. You can tell this is going to be a malty beer. S: Pours a deep brown with a foamy beige head that doesnít disappear. T: Big and malty with a nice raisin finish. No trace of alcohol, which is surprising once I saw that it is 8% abv. M: Very well carbonated and medium bodied. D: For what it is, itís pretty drinkable. Not overpowering in sweetness, but it hides the alcohol quite well. The best Lost Abbey beer Iíve tried to date!

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - AUG 22, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 Bottle. A fantastic abbey dubbel. Fine aromas of chocolate and cinnamon and dried fruits. Flavors almost explode in your mouth. Just about the best American made dubbel Iíve had. On tap is almost as good. Certainly an excellent tap for a Belgian style.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Bottle. Deep garnet color with a tan head. Subtle aromas that seem to go on and on... Bananas, dark fruit, leather, bubble gum; Iíd be happy to sit and sniff this beer all night. Flavor is sweet with more dark fruits; raisins and dates primarily but thereís some banana and candy in there as well. Bubbly with a warm bready note. Quite spicy. Sweet/ dry finish.

Had this beer on tap at Toronado in San Francisco. This strong beer tasted of caramel and sweet, candied orange peel.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2008
My first Lost Abbey beer!!! Pours a murky orange brown color with thin off white head. Looks a lot like iced tea and lemonade. Aroma is wonderfully deep malt, dried apricots, over ripe grapes, faint alcohol, and a bit of peppery spice to round it all off. Flavors follow the aroma well. Roasty sweetness, mild burnt toast, toffee, caramel, golden raisins, pepper, licorice mild smoked wood... all these flavors blend seemlessly. Body is smooth with mild carbonation. This is really wonderful. I think this should be rated higher than the Chimay Red personally.
