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.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2009
375 ml acquired via trade from goldtwins. My only 2008 bottle. Pours a murky dark brown, obvious rusty red notes with very small offwhite head that dies to a near nonexistant head, minimal lacing. Aromas are sour cherries, a bit of tartness of the bat, some sweet raisiny dark malts, but sour takes the front seat. Dark fruits, faint brown sugar. Initial is sour cherries, oaky dryness with faint vanilla, light dark fruits that preach tartness over sweetness. Very nice darker sour, flanders style that is subtle yet superbly tart. Alcohol well hidden as a touch of light funk, tart, oaky underlying meld almost perfectly. Decent carbonation, perfect body allow flavor and palate stickability to meld. Dark fruit sweetness and slight darker mellow malt sweetness incorporate into the back of the body. This is a very nice brew, finish leaves a tart and oaky lasting finish.

Awesome beer. It is not very acidic but sour like a fruit. Great wine notes with a slight wine in the background. Worth its price and place.

Piotrek4 (147) - Lublin, POLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Aromat to nuty winne, migdały, generalnie czerwone wino. Po pewnym czasie wychodzi jednak ogromna wanilia i kokos. W smaku na początku słodkie wiśnie i marcepan, pźniej wchodzi bourbon w słodkiej postaci i cierpka wiśnia, a jeszcze pźniej po gardle czule pieszcząc spływa bourbonowy alkohol. Genialne piwo, zdecydowanie wielowymiarowe. Z czerwonego wina przeistacza się w solidnego beczkowego bourbonowca.

klm1 (1471) - Bled/SF, - APR 2, 2017
From mobile notes; I thought I already drunk it from a bottle, but I was wrong. That was Framboise de amorosa...anyway, this one I drunk in BeerCraft Rohnert park@ a few days before RBB2017, where they had it on tap: poured dark reddish brown with practically no head, just beige brown ring around the glass edges. Aroma-flavors: tart cherries, funk, vanilla, woody oak notes, candy sugar, molasses, vanillin, very dry, tart finish. Alcohol is perfectly hidden. Body is medium?, texture soft, carbonation moderate to low.

MrHangover (4414) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle, thnx to Jimmy. Pours a blurry caramel brownish beer without any head on top. Aroma of mostly chocolate and caramel, hint of oaky vanilla and a faint touch of Bretty notes. Flavor is quite tart, hints of caramel though, softly carbonated. Quite complex and interesting, full bodied and long lasting. Some boozy notes in the finish. Very nice.

copestx (226) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2017
Draft at The Confessional. Brownish/red. Raisins, oak, bourbon qualities, dark fruits, sour cherries, nice and tart. A very different take on the style. Lovely.

snoworsummer (5564) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Draft at the brewery. Pours dark nut brown with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like tart fruits, red wine, nice acidity, earthy and woody malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like tart fruits, acidic, grassy malt, red wine, earth, and wood.

Sparf (272) - SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2017
Balsamvinger-syrlig, romrussin, katrinplommon, vins, aning ekfat och vaniljkola. Mrkt brunrdaktig kulr, inget skum. Mjukt stsyrlig smak med dragning t krsbr, vin och mnga olika br. Hr finns en traktig krvhet som r lite otrevlig men i vrigt en mycket intressant, komplex komposition. Fyllig, alkoholstark och med en mycket lg kolsyreniv. Eftersmaken r lng och syrlig.

bigtaster (965) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2017
From small bottle, vintage 2011 into small taster glass. No head, nose is vinegar, some cherries dark roasted wheat. Very sour, aged too long, very minimal carbonation, slight sweetness. Definitely past its prime, need to get hands on a bottle in its prime.
