Pours dark reddish brown. No head or carbonation. Sour aroma of cherries, raspberries, blueberries, oak casks and glue with raisins in the background. Tart flavour of cherry stones, raspberries and oak casks with sweet raisins in the background. Long after taste. Very intriguing.

December 24, 2013 - bottle via trade that has been buried in my cellar for a while. Dark brown pour with no head, just a few bubbles. Sour cherry and wood in the aroma. Taste was consistent with aroma, but there was some malty sweetness as well. The wood dominates the taste, which I liked, and this had a nice clean finish. Medium bodied with very little carbonation. Lost Abbey label and 2008 vintage.

Poured from a bottle (pretty sure it was a Lost Abbey bottle) in a tasting glass. Pours deep ruby/brown with a small head. Aroma of sourness/tartness, dark fruits, caramel and toffee maltiness, and light oak. Flavor the same with a great blend of the components. Average texture. A good sour.

No head. Murky dark purple brown colored beer.
Nose of lots of red fruit with some tartness from berries, light vinous, (cinnamon ish) wood and a strong overall tartness.
Flavours of red fruit, sour, vinous, sour fruit, wood, light spice tones as pepper, cinnamon and something light clove ish. Good tart and nice red fruit cherry tones.
Aftertaste is tart with cherries, yeast, some malts, some vinous and woody tones.
Low carbo, tart creamy than watery mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture.

Most recent release: 2010 Blend (I believe)
A: after requiring a crab claw to grip this bitch of a cork and pull out, I finally pop this one only to find the beer does not even toot out the tip of this cork. So I pour it, then it lands in the glass, rolls around and simply sits. No bubbles. No head. I can get a nice reddish brown color when light comes through.
S: Cherries, oak, hint of vanilla, tannic and inky nose. Tart. Sometimes smells like laser ink toner.
T: Very woody, very cherry, very oak. Tannic at the finish. Hints of bitter manure flavor on the back end as well. Quite sour I guess I should mention. Some hints of plum as the beer warms a bit.
M: There is a hint of carbonation here. Pretty warm as well from the alcohol. Thick slick on the finish after my body restores from the dryness initially.
O: Well, it’s sour. It’s low in carbonation. It’s hot. It’s got potential. Just not my bag. Still pretty pathetic for carbonation, but at least it’s not infected (per se).

Bottle, as Lost Abbey. Brown murky. Very intensively flavoured and complex nose. Sour cherries, raspberries, some oak, aceto vinegar, dark balsamico to name few of the things popping up. Really nice. Body is slightly acidic, tart, dry, cleansing with a mouthwatering finish. Damp cola, some burnt candi in addition to the old, aged, fruityness. Overall very tasty, with the abv well hidden. Awesome drink, gets better with each sip.
