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 (7048) - 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.

Sparf (256) - stersund, 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 (918) - 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.

375ml bottle on a bottle share @Alebrowar Gdynia
Perfect aroma of tart red fruit and red wina scents.
Looking a bit muddy and cherry in color.
Taste is dominated by wine and fruitiness.
Surprisingly drinkable, more like a very good wine than beer. Alcohol superbly hidden.

From notes. This was enjoyed at Jolly Pumpkin on October 1 for Zwanze Day 2016! The pour is a darker brown with hints of red shining through with a lighter khaki colored head that falls down slowly. The aroma on this is full of booze. Itll knock you back a step. The cherry comes through after that and a lot of roasted malt and a charred oak. The flavor offers the same surrender to the booze. The cherries and a damp barrel come through after that before there is a little roasted malt and a light tartness on the finish. Its interesting, but not terrible. The mouth feel is a little heavy, with a crisper carbonation and a lingeringly boozy cherry on the finish. The oak pokes back through has well. This is something else. Im not sure how I feel about it entirely, but I didnt pour it out.
