3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish brown colour, beige head. Aroma of apple pie, old yeast, higher alcohols, light raisins, quite fruity. Sweet flavour, quite malty, rather alcoholic. Rather a lot of candy sugar. Finish quite one-dimensional, sweet, candy sugar, light sour, light malts.
Rather disappointing for a Lost Abbey brew. Neither balanced nor very interesting.
(From 355mL bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting, De Molen, Bodegraven. No BB date indicated )

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is raisins, spiced booze, dark fruits, some chocolate. Taste is boozy, spiked dark cherries and raisins, spiced and fermented breads. Really tasty and complex with some serious booziness.

Pours a rich black coffee brown from a bottle, thick off-white head.Aroma is a rich maltiness, almost a hint of coffee, but with a faint whiff of raisin. Similar flavor, but nicely non-boozy despite the boost. Good beer.

One of the rewards to myself in a visit to the Windy City. The cork comes out of the 750 ml bottle and the contents go into my Chimay glass, reserved for such tastings. The brew delivers a classic quadrupel body, very dark with a tinge of red around the outside. The head comes on strong, tan colored and finely bubbled, and hangs in there long term. The nose gives me currant, vanilla and some floral. The taste, top 50 deservedly, improves on the interesting scent. I find plum, fig, a bit of oakiness, something earthy, yeast, a toffee sweetness. A subdued strength in the flavors, sort of an American version of Rochefort 10, high praise intended. A slight bitterness ending, all well done. OminouSC2 (966) - Mora, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2017
Mahogany color, medium sized brown head. Aromas of toffee, dried fruits, vanilla, alcohol, raisins, light licorice and vinous hints. Sweet taste with raisins, alcohol, syrup, licorice, wood and spices. Finish feels a bit off, but solid overall.
