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.

2009. Cherry smell. Incredibly nice sour cherry taste with a touch of malt. Pretty delicious. Medium body, very low carbonation, and no foam.

Draft. Mostly clear garnet pour with a lasting beige head and excellent lacing. Big tart cherry aroma, leather, vinegar, funk. The flavor is big and deep. Cherry as hell, tart and funky. Fairly full body, well carbonated - a first for Flat Abbey. Very legit.

Bottle, labeled as Lost Abbey (not Pizza Port) Cuvee de Tomme. Excellent dark reddish-brown color with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, oak, and tartness. Flavor is complex with sour cherries, figs, raisins, vanilla, oak, and sourness that isn’t too intense. Mild sweetness present as well to balance. Sharp palate with medium carbonation and fairly full body. Good stuff.

neongolden (1231) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2015
(375ml 2012 bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Sept 4 2015) Very dark reddish brown with no head. Aroma quite fruity, sour cherry, raisin, prune, oxidized, port, wood, caramel, vanilla hints, light balsamic vinegar, lovely depth and sweetness/acidity balance. Flavour is concentrated and lightly to moderately sour and oxidized. There is caramel, lots of sour cherries, wood, Madiera, prune and raisin building from the middle on. Finish and aftertaste is long and intense with balsamico, sour cherry, raisin and prune touches, wood, vaguest alcoholic bourbon hint. Medium bodied and basically flat by this age, and hides the ABV very well. Very good flavour intensity overall, well-balanced, a bare hint of carb might have been nice. Tasted a Liefmans Goudenband alongside and it was like water in comparison. Will need to have a younger one sometime to compare.

2013 bottle. Murky brown red color with a few bubbles on top. Awesome aroma of raisins, vanilla, plums, dried dates, lactic sourness, tart cherries, oak, bourbon. Taste is very tart and vinous, red berries, cherries, vanilla, oak, bourbon, bit of lemon. Very dry finish with a long aftertaste of dried fruit and vanilla. Beautiful beer!

Honestly said a bit disappointing. Not bad at all but I had way higher expecetations which that beer could not match . Really sour but in a acid way with only some berries in the back. No hint of ceomplexity or any barrels. Nice and refreshing but only acidity in the end.

Bottle, 2008 vintage, from fonefan, many thanks, Jan. The beer has got a hazy brownish colour with a small head and medium body. Aroma of acid, unripe fruits and oak. Taste is little bit on the thin side, expected more. Sour cherries, cherry kernels, seeds, mild barley, mild malt, bread, oak, dust. Sourness is mild, texture quite thin.

201? bottle opened tonight (neck is marked JINTP). Clear, mahogany pour with no head or even bubbles. Even with a hard pour, the beer is still. Modest sediment in the bottom and side, fairly compacted - bottle was stored on its side for a while, then upright for at least two years. Nose is raisins and cherries, with hints of bourbon. Medium body, no carbonation. Tart cherries, raisins, vanilla, bourbon, plums and almonds. No acetic character, though it is quite tart. Finish is long and followed by stomach warming and cherry stones. While quite good still, a small amount of carbonation would vastly increase my enjoyment of this beer.

Pours a dark brown without any head. Pretty still. Aromas of cherry dark fruits, light bourbon. Taste is sour with a light sweetness in the middle and tart at the end. The mouth feel is quite thick.

2013 vintage. Shy head that vanishes quickly. Nose: cherries, vanilla, sweet melon, wine, oak, banana, lacquered dark wood, cigarette smoke, almonds. Aroma alone makes this beer exceptional, really enjoying it. Taste: surprisingly sour, cherries, raisins, coffee notes, a bit disappointing compared with the aroma. Full, creamy body; almost zero carbonation. Long, dry, slightly astringent finish that gives way to some fruity sweetness after a while. Watermelon notes. I expected this beer to be sweeter and similar to Rochefort 10, but in fact it reminds me more of Cuvée des Jacobins. A stronger, sweeter, even a bit cloying at times, version of Cuvée des Jacobins, actually. This beer feels a bit "overengineered"; has a bit too much of everything in it; in particular it feels like it can’t decide whether it wants to be a quadruple or a sour. Still quite pleasant, though.
