4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at Urge as part of their Black Sabbath Lost Abbey SDBW event. Pours a dark mahogany brown with a one finger tan head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of sour fruits (mainly cherries), barnyard funk/wet hay, bourbon, vinegar, and some woody oak notes. Taste is similar to to the aroma but has even more bourbon and oak notes. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a dry, medium long finish. Overall, a amazing sour brown that is a work of art.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Láhev 355 ml. Lost Abbey varianta. Aroma červeného vína snoubené s dubovými silicemi a alkoholem. Pěna je nahnědlé barvy, nulová a ihned mizící. Barva samotného piva je temně hnědá a silně kalná. Chuť je ve středu silně znát po kyselkách, okraje mají nádech oříšků. Celková chuť je silně kyselá a to především finiš který vrcholí v opravdu silném nárazu kyselosti který drží poměrně dlouho. Vcelku se jedná o velmi zajímavé pití, jeho kyselost je možná až příliš silná ale za to mu propůjčuje osobitý ráz a unikátnost, vskutku originální počin.

Thanks a bunch to Niels and Rasmus for this unexpected tick… Yeah BUUUDYyy…
Pours murky dark brown, with a somewhat clear hue, and no head at all.
Aroma is pretty darn complex, with all the sour notes up front, followed by a lot of bourbon notes.
Sour Cherries, brett, oak, balsamic vinegar, slight leather up front, followed by slight vanilla, slight banana.
There’s really a lot going on, and this shit really is complex and unique.
The taste is epic-sour, but is very well balanced by some vanilla/bourbon sweetness.
Medium body, with an oily texture, with virtually no carbonation at all. Great stuff indeed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 01-09-2009 at Fort Wayne, IN Winter Gathering (Bottle) This beer pours a small tan head that fully diminished, brown body, spotty amounts of lacing, and no visible carbonation. The Aroma is brett, sour and cherries. The Taste mimics the Aroma. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium-full bodied. This beer is a bit too sour for my liking. This beer is worth trying if you enjoy this particular beer style.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Murky brown, no head but tiny bubbles when I swirl the glass. HUGE aroma of vinegar,berries, raisins, wood, booz, cask, bourbon but overall more on the dried fruit vs berries side. Palate is superior. Full bodied, very sour and acidic. Sour finish with hints of raisins and heat. Extremely complex. Although it is obvious that this is oak aged, it is very subtle. Alcahol is not obvious considering the high abv. The full body does not effect the drinkability off this, this is truly magnificent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle with SlackerMads, vintage 2012B. Pours hazy auburn with no head. Aroma is almost dense vinegar, intense sour cherries, plenty of acetone, generous amounts of oak, raisin, almond, coconut and bourbon. Taste is moderate sweet, light+ bitter and moderate+ sour/tart. Body is medium, texture is thick, carbonation is flat. Finish is very long, tart, warming and dry with raisin, cherry and vinegar. Incredibly intense beer - rather low drinkability.
