COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once upon a time it was the most award winning Pizza Port beer of all time. Now it has found a new home at The Lost Abbey. A massive brown ale base that is made from four fermentable sugars including Malted Barley, Raisins, Candi Sugar and Sour Cherries, this beer is fully fermented before being placed in Bourbon barrels where the beer ages for one year with the Sour Cherries and the wild Brettanomyces yeast that we inoculate the barrels with. One of the most complex and unique beers we make each year.

Simonsen (692) - NORWAY - OCT 19, 2014
Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Mørk rød, uklar farge, lite karbonert med en tynn skumtopp som forsvinner relativt raskt. Smaker eik, kirsebær, rødvin,sitrus kirsebærstein, bourbon og gjær. Behagelig syrlig. Rett og slett utsøkt

Real impressive! A funk up fruit and tart on the back make this really unique. A nice finish and not very carbinated. Great overall.

A winner here. Very smooth and rich, winey, but not too much so like the 15th anniversary. Would buy this agin, if I could find it.

Bottle from SB. Pours no head. Cherrys and brett is noted in nose. Taste is like wine, very deep and a lot of flavours. A good beer, but not really my cup of tea.

Rich and strong aroma, like brandy and sherry, very winey. Sherry and Madeira flavors. Strong, fruity, plummy and raisiny. Strong, souring, alcoholic finish.

Delicious, tart cherry flavor, even in the after taste. Very winelike. Aroma is bourban, cherry, caramelization. Thick and full bodied. Hint of warm vanilla and oak at the finish. So yummy.

Vignale (2103) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2014
flaska från Systembolaget. Wow det här är så maffigt. Stor koncentrerad doft av torkade syrliga körsbär, tranbär och russin. Stor kropp, madeira, portvin, stor syrlighet från körsbären, rejäl sötma och alkholvärme även om alkholen är väl integrerad en liten touch av fat. Perfekt balans och ren njutning. Riktigt riktigt gott.

tmrmwel (1003) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle, vintage 2012. Pours very dark brown with a reddish hue and as good as no head. Aroma is sweet cherries, bourbon barrels, tobacco and vanilla, as well as figs, raisins and red wine.  Medium body with creamy texture and no carbonation. Flavour is tart with cherries and berries, prunes, as well as yeast, leather and oak. Dry earthy finish.
