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.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - DEC 13, 2005
(on bottle at CPH Yeha05) Really nice dark, yet clear amber colur, no head. delicate aromas; kandis, wooden barrel and kernalfruits. Slightly acidic, mildly moldy, not a big flavour, but a super finish of cherrystones. gets heavy and cloying in finish.

DYCSoccer17 (3357) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Bottle courtesy of richlikebeer at his YeHa 05 tasting. The bottle had a black label with a golden C on it. Other than that, I am not sure on the vintage. Complex aroma with some sour fruity cherry-like notes. There are also some sweet and sugary malts in the nose as well with hints of toffee. Mildly hazy amber color with a light tan head. Sour, sweet, astringent cherry-like flavors to start. Turns spicy with peppery notes. Roasty chocolate then follows this with a long dry finish followed by an encore performance of the sour flavors. Complex beer with lots going on. Pleasureable.

sprinkle (114) - Arcadia, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2005
Deep hazy mohogany in color with decent head and lace. Lots of champagne like bubbles. Nose of slight sourness with underlining sweet malts and fruitiness. Rich and expansive mouthfeel. Sour notes upfront, then hints of whiskey, cherries and vanilla oak on the finish. The whiskey really is intense for a second but doesn’t linger. Lots of layers with a clean finish.

Kingsley (26) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 8, 2005
A strong Belgian style ale with sour cherries. The resemblance to Flemish ales is extraordinary. Slightly cloudy ruby-brown color. Well balanced flavors of cherry, raisin. My partner and I selected this beer "best of show" at the recent Strong Ale Festival in Carlsbad, CA, which featured over 60 beers of 8.0 and higher abv. Amzaing stuff.

csbosox (1224) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - DEC 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2005 FoBAB. Reddish brown, kahki colored head. Sour brown ale aroma. Oaky, sour nose, some raisin. Taste is citrus, oak, red wine & red wine vinegar. Very nice flavor, not too sour. Very nice and easy to drink for a sour beer.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2005
75 cl bottle. Reddish brown colour with no head. Sour aroma with notes of wood. Extreme sour and acid flavour, not a beer for me.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2005
Hazy amber reddish beer with no head. Malty, light tart aroma with a yeasty and woody note. Tart fruity flavor with a faintly soapy touch and some sweet alcohol n the finish.

sunevdj (3271) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 Pours dark red/brown with no head. Has a strong smell of port. Quite sour with aromas of berries, yoghurt, wood and alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Too sour and rather dissappointing for a beer rated this high.

Rerate, May 2nd 2008 at the brewery. Pours a clear brown with an off-white diminishing head. Light sweetness with a moderate sourness and a light bitterness. Aromas of sour cherries and cranberries. Medium bodied with a slightly stickty mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Dry finish with more aromas of sour cherries.
