Nothing much disappoints from this brewery. Prune fig and dried fruit aroma. Mild malty evident. Great palate and aftertaste of sweet plums. Fantastic.

Bomber - pours a nice mahogany brown with a fluffy off white head that quickly dissipates. It smells of rich sweet malts, dark ripe fruit, a hint of baking spice and herbaceousness. A mouthful is layered with fig, prune, tart cherry, caramel like malts and a touch of earthiness. Like fall in a bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the GA Chaper Room. Pours muddy brown, with a rocky, beige head. The nose is caramel, cloves, pecans, some light oak, and pine sap. Sweet and malty up front, with a good bit of hoppy bitterness, especially as it warms. Medium to heavy body, with a creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Lightly bitter aftertaste. This is a pretty nice dubbel, with good malt character, the hops are more aggressive than I’d like for the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A great dubbel from Lost Abbey, so far a good track record from this brewery. A malty, deeply fruity and sugary brew. Almost like a dark dessert wine on the palate due to the presence of heavy raisin and fig notes. The aftertaste is of a deep malt, yeast and alcohol with the candied taste lingering. Overall makes for a delicious combination that is definitely to be savored. An excellent example of the Belgian style of brewing and another fine selection from Lost Abbey.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewery. Pint glass. Deep amber color with minimal off white head. Aroma is muted but has some nutty, roasted aspects. Taste is heavy on malty sweetness with caramel and subtle dark fruits. Coats the mouth in sugars. Spices are present. Solid dubbel by a brewery that exceeded expectations. Try it.
