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.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Huge aroma of apple, banana, plum, raisin, vanilla, brown sugar. Appears a crystal clear mahogany color with some reddish hues, and with a mountainous brown head that dissipates almost immediately. Flavor is figs and raisins at the start, with vanilla, bourbon, and oak in the middle, and ending with flavors of spiced fruitcake. Palate is quite dry. Overall, a good brew that could be made better with a bit more residual sweetness and a bit less of a dry mouthfeel.

ABT_S54 (351) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Pours deep red with a bubbly beige head. Aroma is very rich raisins with an almost fruitcake but not boozy in any way. Taste is upfrnt (slightly) burnt raisins, with a good helping of sweetness and the yeasty notes (which I don’t actually enjoy too much) are less prominent initially - only one warmed up to the estery banana/spicy notes come in. The best dubbel I have had but I am far from a fan of the style and I would choose to have this slightly chilled to suppress the (not excessive at all for the style) yeasty notes which admittedly defeats the object of a dubbel. The additions of the raisins elevates this massively to me and another piece of The Lost Abbey jigsaw is in place.

ogniskowicz (610) - POLAND - FEB 1, 2016
W zapachu głównie rodzynki, suszone figi i daktyle. W tle trochę fenoli i przypalonego karmelu. W smaku bardzo wytrawne, dość fenolowe, wyłażą tak suszone owoce w sporych ilościach, jak i guma balonowa. Wysycenie dość wysokie. Bardzo dobry dubbel, braciszkowie z niejednego klasztoru w Belgii by mogli pozazdrościć.

mR_fr0g (7805) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Keg at Route CBC, CBC Clapham, 02/10/15. Reddy caramel brown coloured pour with a lasting creamy head. Aroma is earthy honey and brown sugars, brown bread. Flavour is composed of sticky brown sugars, tasty enough, mellow belgian yeast, cinnamon and some spicy wood in the finish. Palate is semi sweet with highish carbonation. Decent.

TimE (4697) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 27, 2015
Not sure how old this bottle is, but pulled it out of my cellar and it was between 4-7 years old. Medium brown color. Lots of port and dark fruit, milk chocolate. Low carbonation that is a bit uneven, but flavors have really integrated well. Very malty, nice lingering finish of port and dark fruit. Nice.

Zymurgeist2 (1624) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 4, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2015 from bottle to tulip. Aroma of straw and slight fusel alcohol heat. Dark fruit show late and moderately. Aroma rounds out nicely as it warms and marries. Clear garnet-brown with light brown head that coats the top as a dusting with moderate large bubbles around the collar. Taste is chocolate, fig and slightly old dark fruit. Residual sweetness is slightly too sweet.
