COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Back in 1992 as the craft beer revolution was gaining momentum in and near our nationís capital, an enthusiastic group of homebrewers in Northern Virginia founded The Wort Hogs Homebrewing Club. From the beginning, homebrewers have enjoyed the support of craft brewing professionals and together both have grown in number. To celebrate and acknowledge that wonderful pro-am cooperation, Lost Rhino Brewing Company with co-founder Favio Garcia and The Wort Hogs have collaborated to brew Lost Hog: The Wort Hogs 20th Anniversary Ale. Lost Hog is a Belgian-style Dark Ale at Alc. 9% by Vol. with 25 IBU. Raise a glass of Lost Hog and toast our 20 great years together and 20 more to come. Want to homebrew? Go to: www.WortHogs.com

Draft. Poured a dark brown with a thin off-white head. Sweet aroma that came through in the flavor profile as well, with a malt flavor profile as well. Definitely didnít drink like a 9%, especially with its smooth finish.

750ml bottle I picked up at the brewery. Pours a watery, mahogany amber with one ring of eggshell head. Nose is interesting, red grape, some candy sugar, caramel, but... not much else. Flavor is candy sweet, prune, but... not a whole lot else. Clean finish. Not a whole lot going on.

hazy red-amber pour, thin wispy white head, small bubbled thin ring. Nose is red apple, light oxidation and grain, sugary. Flavor is more red apple and bubble gum front, mid very sugary, finish fizzy and lightly fruity with heavy carbonation.

Huhzubendah (2525) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 3, 2013
The beer is mahogany with a small, broken, tan head. The aroma offers brown sugar, yeast, malt, toffee. A touch of spice with fairly sweet notes of brown bread, brown sugar. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Lingering yeast and dark ale characteristics. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GT2 (8434) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 3, 2013
750mL c&c thanks to radagast83. Pours a clear, deep red ruby. Weaker beige foam. Nose is very sticky cherry candies/gummies, dark alcohol. Taste is sweet red cherry, spicy, mild cocoa and roast, brown sugar. Like a sweet Abbey Dubbel. Mild spearmint character all over. Stickier, but decent minerally. Iím not the biggest fan, but it does fit well into Belgian Strong Ale.

Elwood (3176) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Serving: draft at the brewery. It pours a muddy dark brown with a thin ring for a head. The nose has some dried fruit and yeast notes. The flavor starts off with a little caramel and raisin but swings into a yeasty dough flavor that languishes on the tongue. The yeast is way too dominant in this brew. The 9% abv is well hidden and it is dangerously drinkable.

radagast83 (4643) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2012
5oz taster glass at the brewery. Poured a cloudy dark brown color (not quite cola colored, but close) with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet candy sugars and malts. Flavor is sweet, malted notes, with some dry honey character. Actually pretty refreshing for 9% ABV. Enjoyed this one.
