3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. The bottle looks cool, no doubts about it. The corsk jumps out with a loud pop, lots of pressure in this tiny bottle. Foam starts coming out slowly, gusher warning. It pours dark ruby / mahogany in the glass with a huge off-white head. Tiny bubbles that stick around and last long. Aroma is a tad weaker than you could expect. Nothing realy jumps in your face but you can easily distinguish raisins, red peppers, blood, yeast. Some cinnamon and bread in there, plus mix of dried fruits. Taste is on the sweet side with a slightly acidic kick in the end. You can raisins, cinnamon, bread, plums and chili in the end. It finishes a bit warming, but nothing to put me off. Actually I find the chili to be very well integrated. Some sort of orange zest kinde feel to it as well. Mouthfeel is medium to tick with huge carbonation. Nothing that a good ol’ swirl can’t resolve. Overall, this is good stuff. I think the spices added work perfectly with the base beer. Only complain would be the weak aroma, even at room temp. Very good nonetheless.

Deep brown of color with a longlasting beige head. An aroma of coffee, spice, chocolate and liqurice notes. A flavor with dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, malty and a nice well balanced spicy finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12.7 oz bottle. Dark brown that kicks up a huge balsa head. Nose is dough, brown sugar, raisin and spice. Medium body with a tingle. Taste is Belgian yeast, plum, dandelion greens and burnt sugar; spices barely noticeable. It’s got an odd basement quality i can’t get used to.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours a deep brown-nearly black with a robust tan head. Nose is super spicy, yeast driven. Clove and pepper dominate. Some earthy chile notes and cinnamon. Tamarind is lost. On the palate, some cocoa and a faint chile heat. The yeast is just too much overall for this beer to work right, imo. Cinnamon pushes the dryness as well. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cola body with a super airy cola and foam head. Belgian cinnamon spice nose with dashes of chocolate raisin and chocolate cookie crusts. Raisiny body accented by caramel malts and Special B, no doubt. Well balanced and enjoyable. Powerful, yet stays within itself. Nicely crafted. Seems to improve with each sip.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Znakomite quadrupel amerykanskie. Fajna buteleczka korkowana, a korek hucznie strzelil. Aromat porto i winiaku. Wyglad to piekne ciemnobrazowe piwo z bordowym refleksem. Metne na koniec ze prawie czarne sie robi. Bardzo ladna i trwala piana jak na ten gatunek. Jest trwala, kremowa i bezowa. W smaku jakby sliwki, rodzynki i rum. Alkoholowa nuta wyczuwalna. Szlachetny alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewa i relaksuje. Wspaniale piwo, swietnie pasowalo do francuskiego sera plesniowego. Polecam

Bottle cheers to Leighton. One of the better Lost Abbey beers I’ve had to date. Full amber pour with a rich, khaki head lasting for the duration leaving great lacing. Nose is full of dried and dark stewed fruits - sultana, date, fig. Massive toffee comes through with hints of vanilla and biscuit. Taste brings out nutty undertones - roasted walnut, fig, date, raisin, dough and toffee. Vanilla hints for sweetness. Great stuff

Flaske hos Ole Anders juni-13: fint skum og aroma med krydder, syrnet frukt og maltsødme. Litt syrlig smak som varer. Kvadrupelpreg men allikevel a one night stand.
