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.

Fujimo2000 (22) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Pours copper with quickly dissipating tan head. Smells of apricot and raisin. Smooth finish, it’s a quality beer I would drink often if given the opportunity.

Prolitariat777 (102) - St george, Utah, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Nothing much disappoints from this brewery. Prune fig and dried fruit aroma. Mild malty evident. Great palate and aftertaste of sweet plums. Fantastic.

Paigeturner (98) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Prune and fig on a dusty brown pour with white poof head, sweet flavor with raisin and prune. Finishes a little thick not bad.

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.

Iznogud (1549) - CROATIA - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle, 750 ml from Svijet Piva, Zagreb. Shared with JFK10000 and others. Pours dark amber with medium off-white head. Caramel malty, dried fruits, bit spicy. Alcohol well hidden.

GTAEgeek (1502) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 22, 2015
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.

kaser (4181) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Brown with no head. Draft pour at Lost Abby /port brewing. Prune and berries. Not my style but decent.

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.
