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.

From notes. This was enjoyed at Jolly Pumpkin on October 1 for Zwanze Day 2016! The pour is a darker brown with hints of red shining through with a lighter khaki colored head that falls down slowly. The aroma on this is full of booze. It’ll knock you back a step. The cherry comes through after that and a lot of roasted malt and a charred oak. The flavor offers the same surrender to the booze. The cherries and a damp barrel come through after that before there is a little roasted malt and a light tartness on the finish. It’s interesting, but not terrible. The mouth feel is a little heavy, with a crisper carbonation and a lingeringly boozy cherry on the finish. The oak pokes back through has well. This is something else. I’m not sure how I feel about it entirely, but I didn’t pour it out.

Mesjasz (1088) - Lodz, POLAND - OCT 14, 2016
Butelka z 2012. Aromat bardzo winny, gronowy, lekko z octem i beczką. Smak zadziwiająco zbalansowany, jest lekko kwaśno, dużo wytrawne, lekko słodkie w octowym stylu. W smaku to praktycznie wytrawne czerwone wino, dużo elementów gronowych, trochę wiśni, skórki cytryny, nuta kwaśnego jabłka. Posmak zadziwiająco krótki, wytrawny i lekko taniczny. Świetnie ukryte alko, a przecież to ma 11%. Bardzo dobre, lecz spodziewałem się wyrwania z butów. Jeśli ktoś lubi wytrawne wina i piwo, to jest temat dla niego.

Fujimo2000 (110) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Pours brown with a huge cherry aroma. Taste is strong sour cherry and tart finish. I’m not a big sour liver but this is actually pretty good.

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2016
Mmm, smaken var otroligt intensiv, på gränsen till för mycket om man frågar mig. Smaken i sig bar kraftigt syrliga toner med mycket körsbär och syra. Kroppen var okej men balansen kunde jag inte känna av.

Amber color. Aromas of berries and dried fruits, raisins, figs and prunes. Heavily sour and tart taste, overshadows most other flavors. Some wood, sour finish.
