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.

Bottle refuses to relinquish the cork from its grasp. Once open, let's out nary a pop. Pours deep plum, no head. Nose of arisen, cherries, wood, booze. Taste is modestly sweet at first with cherry juice, light tart sweeps in. Body is creamy but flat.

Draft. Dark Brown red pour with a thin white head. Nose is dark cherry rinds, funk, tart, hay. Taste is very tart cherry rind with lots of hay funk and a long red wine like finish.

Barwa: ciemna, głęboko rubinowa, pod światło przypominająca czerwone wino. Praktycznie bez piany, wysycenie zerowe. Sprawia wrażenie oleistości. Aromat: owocowy, wiśniowy, kwaśny, alkoholowy, jakby drewniany. Bardzo ciekawy, zdecydowanie zyskujący z czasem. Smak: kwaśny, wytrawny, alkoholowy, wręcz rozgrzewający i piekący w przełyku. Przypominający wino owocowe. Wyczuwalne akcenty drewniane. Miałem duże oczekiwania w stosunku do Cuvee de Tomme, zwłaszcza że jest to chyba relatywnie najdroższe piwo jakie kupiłem (stosunek ceny do pojemności). Smakuje jak imperial kriek, dość dziki i kwaśny Leżakowanie w beczkach po burbonie z pewnością odcisnęło także swój wpływ. Jest to piwo do bardzo wolnego sączenia i delektowania się. Ocena została podwyższona z uwagi na złożoność tego piwa, ale stosunek ceny do jakości wypada bardzo, bardzo słabo. Z uwagi na to (jak i ograniczona dostępność) zapewne nie sięgnę po nie kolejny raz.

2013 Vintage corked and caged Lost Abbey bottle - Pours a murky reddish brown with not much head. Raisins and sour cherries for aroma. Very oaky, nice acidity, prunes and dark fruits, medium to thicker body, tasty.

Thx! to Kraddel. 375 ml. corked & caged LA bottle. Pours a very dark vinous red, blood red dark pomegranate with basically no head and no sign of carbonation. Smells very heavy of wood, cherries, cherry pits, lots of tem, sour, vinegar, cherry wood, touch nuts,… Tart med. vinegar sour with oxidation notes manifesting as nuts, hazel, tart wood, lots of cherry, cherry pits, tart, lots of wood, very minor funk. Totally flat, acidic, vinegar, notes. Very nice but probably over-hyped at the same time (it is currently listed as #2 Sour Brown on RB) because it doesn’t beat some far less expensive and rare beers within the style but that is the way these things work.

Bottle from my new buddy bytemesis - thanks man! Deep reddish cola pour with no head. Cherry and wood, hint of raisin, slight booziness, fairly dense on the tongue and also a bit lively. Delicious!

Very dark brown in color, no head. Nose of sour cherries. Taste of tart sour cherries, malty, boozy, raisins. Buttery mouthfeel. Finishes with a balanced sourness. Carbonation was a little dead in my bottle, but that was fine with me. Great tasting sour, would love another one!

Pour is dark red/brown with no head. Very low carbonation. Aroma and flavor of sour fruit, raisins, oak, and cherries. Sugar and tartness in the finish.
