4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On draft at Bigwood 12/6/2012, from notes [3 of 11].
Appearance: Beautiful deep ruby brown. Small ring of off-white head.
Aroma: Dark fruit. Bourbon. Vanilla. This will be good.
Taste: Mmm. Bourbon barrel sweet oak vanilla. Love it. Sweet with a ?? of tart [wow my handwriting is atrocious]. The tart finish blends perfectly with the sweet start, and the two harmonize beautifully.
Palate: Moderate carb, good coating mouthfeel.
Overall: <3. Everything I love about deep, dark, sweet barrel-aged beers (e.g., Sucaba) married to the sours I also love. Top notch.

Brown, quite murky, no head. Smell of tart fruits, caramel, funk, hints of toast, oak and bourbon. Light sweet, cherries and booze, oak, vanilla, bourbon, raisins, some dark malts and toast. Extremely complex, medium sour, cherries, tart. Moderate bitter finish. A world class beer. It’s complex and well balanced. Nice!

Pours murky brown with almost no fizz. Smells woody, sour, and of cherries. Taste is sour, cherry, hints of vanilla, and subtle wood notes. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Lost Abbey Cuvee de Tomme finishes with a lingering sourness reminiscent of cherries.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown but with red notes, no head at all, small ring of foam along the side, some carbonation in the surface. Aroma is sweet vanilla and juicy raisins. Some burnt figs and brown sugar and wood., Tart notes of the sour cherries down under. Bit boozy. Taste is light sweet, mellow and then really sharp sour and tart. Not what one expectet and surprisingly medium body! Finish is really tart too and long lasting. But then too some vanilla. Nearly redwinish dry tounge. The barrel comes here. Really sour and the tartness makes a fresh dry beer out of dense big quod.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Couleur coca, pas de mousse. Nez très marqué vinaigre balsamique, aigre, légèrement vernis, vanille, raisins secs, cerises aigres, léger boisé. Bouche vraiment impressionnante, très aigre, encore bien plus qu’une Rodenbach Grand cru, peu de bulles, encore cerises aigres, raisins, bois, vanille, de l’acidité aussi, noix, fruits rouges dans le fond, très sèche, presque tannique. Les 11% passent tout seuls. Longueur énorme sur le côté aigre de la cerise griotte.

750 ml bottle is 2005 vintage, courtesy of ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad! Pours a hazy dark brown with thin beige rim head. No lacing, but the viscosity of this beer provides legs. Aroma is sour cherries upfront, with yeasty spiciness, bourbon, oak, vanilla. Flavor is same with a port complexity and moderate sourness that is delicious. A real treat to have had this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle of the 2009 vintage. Pours flat as a pancake. Great nose though. Lots of leather, dark caramel, and a hint of stone fruit in the nose. Full, complex flavor. Leather, port, dark bread, and a hint of sourness on the back end. Warming finish. Outstanding, but a little carbonation would do this brew wonders.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft at Capone’s Lost Abbey event. A sour-sweet, fruity brew with as much complexity as I’ve ever come across. After trying this beer, I began having dreams about it (and about similar ones that so far exist only in my imagination). There is some lime in the aroma. The flavor is magnificently complex, with dashes of raspberry, cranberry, cider, lime, dark bread, and figs. It starts out tart, and then turns warm on the palate, before finishing with flavors of red wine and grains. Great!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy brown with no head to speak of. Brown sugar , raisins , and cherry aromas. Flavor is mouth puckering tart. Sugar sweet with the brett making an appearance in the finish. Fruit lasts beyond.
