This is an extremely good ale. Seems more like a barrel aged scotch ale. Sweet, earthy, and smooth.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, pours a murky dark mahogany with a tiny head. Nose is complex, with dark fruits, slight oxidation and a little wood. Flavour is quite boozy, with caramel, wood, alcohol and varnish. Fairly perfumey on the finish, but very well balanced. Overrated due to rarity but very good.

Drake’s 10k, always happy to try something from Lost Abbey. This one was a favorite for me. Dark brown, no head. Aroma of sour bread. Tia compared it to the brown bread that they used to have at Steak and Ale, and that was dead on to me. Liquid bread, yummy, hint of molasses. 15% was incredibly well hidden. Nicely done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by stfuad at my 10K tasting. Thanks! Hazy dark purplish, head fades quickly. Aroma of heavy oxidation, toffee, whiskey. The taste is toffee, raisin, whiskey, chocolate. Medium bodied, mild booze, not bad for as old as st. fuad says it is.
