Had at Madness with the Moose. Poured a dark red-brown color that was almost purple. Small off-white head. The aroma was fruity with plenty of raisin and other dark fruit. Light alcohol hits the nose. The flavor was sweet and fruity. More raisins and some light chocolate and sugar. The alcohol is pretty much covered up in the flavor. But you can feel in warm the body. Full bodied and almost sticky. BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Should have rated this a long time ago.....it deserves it after having survived the plane ride home from Fullerton in my checked garment bag...stuffed in my boot. Poured a dark mahogany reddish...small, brief head. Sweet malty aroma, fruity....ripe dark fruits, prunes, raisins, etc. Full bodied with more dark fruit in the flavor, alcohol, chocolate hints....tasty for sure. Quick dry finish....low carbonation. Yet another standout brew by the LB folks. dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2008
750 ml bottle procured through trade from Ty and shared with Nate and Naka. Pours dark brown with amber hues, small, rimming white head. Sweet malt, caramel, raisin, grape and plum on the nose. Taste is caramel, toffee, lots of raisin and plum. Mild bitter. A bit dry. Dark and tasty with a great mouthfeel and a good look. Very good stuff. I’m a fan. Now where can I find some more. . . . . . . . .. . . skortila (5850) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2008
Bottled. 75 cl. Aroma has raisin/dried fruits, madeira. Very fruity. Hazy, dark amber-red coloured with an off-white lace, not much head. Taste is sweet with raisin, caramel malt. A little alcoholic, but ok. caesar (7133) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2008
Bottled. Hazy redbrown color, no head, just some lacing. Aroma of loads of raisins, malt, sugar, madeira/port. Taste of liquor, fruits, quite alcoholic. Bit off-balance.

Sampled from 750mL from dpjuart. Subtle warm malty aroma, caramel and Tootsie Roll. Macerated raisins, plum, light toffee. Light vaporous notes, alcohol, chocolate. Subtle yet full of different aromas, very nice. Rich. Murky brown with thin off-white head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium-light carbonation, mild warming. Starts with raisin, chocolate, and toffee. Warming with medium alcoholic vapour. Warming with great malty flavor, light bitter hoppiness. Subtle overall, but there are some complex undercurrents going on. Finishes with mild bitterness and rich malt. Delicious. bierkoning (13349) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2008
Bottle from Secret Santa, shared @ jbrus’s place. Aroma has raisin, port and earthy hops. Full bodied. Alcoholic, porto-like flavor with brandy notes, raisin and earthy and oily hops. Hints of cacao. Notes of wood coming up in the aftertaste. jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2008

Raisin, grapes and madeira aroma. Ruby color, beige tiny head, few lace. Sweet, light bitter, raisin, figues. Alcoholic like a liquor. Not bad, nice flavors, bit out of balance and a bit like it was still too young.
This is alot like Raison D’Etre by Dogfish Head. Must be the raisins. The raisins give it a very dank, Belgian flavor. This doesn’t show so well in Lost and Found, but does really shine in this beer. Pours a dark brown with a nice tan head. Flavor is raisins, figs, cherries and chocolate. Very yummy beer! gotbeach (139) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 9, 2008
A nice dark beer with minimal head. Hints of chocolate and dates in both smell and taste. A bit sweet, but very enjoyable.
