bottle. Pours a dark brown with a nice tan head. Smell is of vinous fruit. Taste is of vinous fruit - raisins for sure - dark fruit and malt. Mouthfeel is wine-like and alcohol is noticeable. Pretty fair showing. hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Pours brown/black with red highlights and a small tan head that quickly disappears. Nice quad aroma of dark fruits, brown sugar, a tiny bit of chocolate. Very full bodied mouthfeel. Taste is intense, Alcohol, figs, raisins, malts, yeast, chocolate, dark fruits. Loved it, best of Lost Abbey so far. Plovmand (8304) - Helsinge, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2008
Bottle. Hazy dark reddish brown colour with a creamy long lasting head. Lots of overripe dark fruit, dark sugar, raisins, prunes and rum in aroma. Creamy bodied. The flavour is somewhat nutty with lots of dark fruits, malts and just a little touch of the alcohol. Smooth and soft brew. Great craftmanship. travita (5003) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2008

Bottle. The body is to damm dark to see through for a color. The smell is roasted malt and coffee. The taste is smooth and of prune with a mild sweetness. The carbonation and lacing are just right.
Skinnyviking (9569) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle. Low or actually non-existand head. Vinious malty fuity spicy alcohol hops aroma and flavor with low carbonation and a long aftertaste. An Irishman would probably say: Not too bad. faroeviking (10911) - FAROE ISLANDS - OCT 25, 2008
Botella. Cloudy deep brown. Very pleasant alco sweet dark fruity caramel aroma with some spice. Good mouthfeel. Rather sweet flavour, though pleasant, bitter, alcohol, deep maltiness and dark fruits. Pues, yo la choca calquiera tiempo. Yoy thin viking I thank you (Skinnyviking). Eyah eay, great brew... though too much alcohol present. brokephibroke (315) - Mead, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Dark brown pour with a ruby backbone - quicky dissolving, noisy tan head. Banana bread, chocolate and raisans. Delicious and coating. Fruit, molasses, oak and sweet - lingering bittersweet. santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Dark ruby/purple body with a small but long lasting off-white head. Spotty lacing. Potent fig, rum and cake batter aroma with burnt brown sugar, caramel, oak, molasses, raisins and chocolate. The taste is oaky to start with lots of bourbon. The middle is sweet caramel and brown sugar. The finish is chocolate and molasses with tons of dark fruits - figs, raisins, plums, and dates. This beer is unbelievable and proves entirely why Tomme is one of the best brewmasters we have in America. Bold yet subtle, extreme yet refined, complex yet refreshing. I love it.
