Nothing much disappoints from this brewery. Prune fig and dried fruit aroma. Mild malty evident. Great palate and aftertaste of sweet plums. Fantastic. thegreat78 (42) - San Marcos, California, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Appears a dark amber with red edges when held to the light. The off white head slowly fades into a mild cap. Streaky lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of raisins, caramel, rum, vanilla, nougat, ripe fruit, brown sugar, with a nutty finish.
Taste is of the same as the aromas with brown sugar, nuts, caramel standing out to make for a very nice flavor.
Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, boozy, rummy raisins, caramel, light cocoa, along with lightly smoked meat grazing along the tongue. b79turner (260) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 5, 2011
This beer is UNBELIEVABLY GOOD! 750 mL bottle, corked and caged, poured into a tulip glass. Pours a deep amber color, thick pillowy head. Lacing covers the entire top of the beer. First sip starts with a slight bitter hoppiness, then gives way to a rich...almost Belgian flavor. Notes of raisin, vanilla, caramel, nuts, coffee. I can’t say enough good things about this beer. This is my first try...definitely won’t be my last. Broncowaldon (129) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Raisins and plums along with sme raspberry and many other sour fruits. Dark brown good mouthfeel and carbonation. Flavors of fruit and tart were pretty intense. Good now may be better over time. FezMonkey (268) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Dark ruby red color with a big foamy head. Aroma of raisins and candy sugars. Sweet malt flavor with spicy raisin.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2009 In short: Intense Dubbel. Rich nutty/fruity body and powerful hopping. One of my favourite of the style.stimulus (86) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2010
How: Bottle, 750ml, various aging (little variation), this rating for a 6+ months old bottle
The look: Cloudy golden-brown body with a medium beige head
In long: Strong nutty and caramel nose with also quite a bit of resinous hops. Taste is like eating one of those grocery store bags of mix stuff (nuts, raisins, dried fruits) covered by rich caramel. Some earthy notes. The intense citric and resinous hops really sets it apart from most dubbels. So tasty that you want to drink it slowy. Body is just more decadent as a big \barley wine. Dubbels don’t get much better than that. I got a lot of satisfaction from the Lost & Found, but still no sign of my missing gloves.
Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a New Belgium globe glass.
A: Smells just like raisins, with a bit of molasses, but not too much. You can tell this is going to be a malty beer.
S: Pours a deep brown with a foamy beige head that doesn’t disappear.
T: Big and malty with a nice raisin finish. No trace of alcohol, which is surprising once I saw that it is 8% abv.
M: Very well carbonated and medium bodied.
D: For what it is, it’s pretty drinkable. Not overpowering in sweetness, but it hides the alcohol quite well. The best Lost Abbey beer I’ve tried to date! scottcowley (24) - - APR 20, 2014
Great beer, pour nice ruby brown color, hints of raisins, and dark fruits. Can’t go wrong with lost abbey brewery. Cristobal37 (1142) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 10, 2017
Big bottle. Foggy icey brown. Fruity marzipan aroma. Chocolate, chalky malts, raisin taste. Totally solid dubbel. One of the best from the style. Lost Abbey for Prez. stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - AUG 22, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 Bottle. A fantastic abbey dubbel. Fine aromas of chocolate and cinnamon and dried fruits. Flavors almost explode in your mouth. Just about the best American made dubbel I’ve had. On tap is almost as good. Certainly an excellent tap for a Belgian style.
