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.

Svesse (11295) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2020
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2020 (Bottle) Deep dark ruby colour (port wine) with brief bubbly head. Fruity, sourish nose with balsamic vinegar, cherries, prunes, chocolate, vanilla, oak wood and red grapes. Fruity, tart taste with notes of sour cherries, balsamic vinegar, red apples, vanilla, oak wood, red fruit, nuts, chocolate and a dry and tart finish. Alcohol completely overshadowed by tartness and cherries. Medium body, dry. Excellent beer with a generous tartness and lots of sour fruit and wood. Like Rodenbach on steroids. Impressive beer.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2019 On tap at Liquid Gold in SF, CA with W Seyffer. Aroma is cherry, balsamic vinegar, spicy funk (like dry aged beef and wood), horse hooves.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2019 Zapach nie jest jakiś bardzo intensywny, wyraźne aromaty ciemnych, suszonych owoców, wiśni, wyraźne aromaty dzikich drożdży.

CraftBeerNick (5287) - Wokingham, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2019 Bottle from DeBierkonig, Amsterdam, in the garden with Dad, 8th September 19. Pours a dirty brown red colour. Aroma is tart fruit, barrel, wood and bourbon, some cherry. Taste is tart cherry, bourbon, vanilla, wood, vinous, slight sweet, but overall acidic and tart, almost too much. Pretty good and complex, but I have better beers in this category at this ABV

ineedbeer (3042) - California, USA - AUG 14, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2019 Poured from a 375 ml bottle from what I believe is 2014. Aroma is a balanced blend of dark fruits and malt notes. Rich, dark caramel and toffee with lighter chocolate and toast notes. Loads of cherry, plum, raisin and prunes. Light alcohol notes and faint bourbon and oak. Pours brown with a small, thin, tan head that recedes quickly and disappears. No lacing and small legs. Flavor is rather acidic but only moderately sharp with lots of dark fruit notes. Loads of cherries and raisins with lighter cassis, plum and prune notes. Medium caramel and toffee notes with lighter chocolate and toast. Light oak and bourbon with a bit of alcohol in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium low carbonation. Low, but present astringency and low, but present alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright beer but these higher abv dark sours aren't really my thing.

kapusil (2011) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 17, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2019 0.375l bottle thanks to Cristobal37. Murky dark ruby body with practically no head. Huge ripe sour cherry notes in the aroma with some horse blanket, balsamic vinegar, chocolate, oak and raisins. Taste of balsamic vinegar, sour cherry, toast, oak, lemon juice and even some caramel. Very sour, but very complex too. Awesome.
