Beautiful 750m bottle.

I poured this in my maredsous chalice and a rather clear brown sugar with a bit of terra cotta clay color filled my glass. The foamy head frothed up a little over 2 fingers of creamy tortilla colored goodness. Very aromatic and tickly on the nose. Scents of figs, plums, and dates are at the front. Very fragrant.

The taste follows the aroma quite well giving to a rum cake spiciness of figs and sweet toffee. Solid, earthy, fruity and just marvelous. Of the 3 from Lost Abbey that i've tried so far (Red Barn, Avant Garde and this one) I like this one best.

Very effervescent on the tongue and perfect for the upcoming holidays. I'll be aging several bottles of this to see how it comes out. Do yourself a favor and get some of this.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the brewery in San Marcos.

Pours deep amber with a white head that soon reduces but leaves nice patterns of sticky lacing on the glass.

Aroma: intriguing fruity (dark fruit) aroma with a some medium malt base and alcohol esters

Flavor: slightly more yeasty/funky than the aroma, but not challenging to drink. Good sweet/bitter balance.

Feel: near medium body; medium, lightly crisp carbonation.

O: lacks the complexity and well hidden ABV of fine Belgian versions.

Serving type: on-tap

3.89/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

The best part about this beer is the pour. The deep, burnt red color and nearly three-finger head make this very pretty to look at.

Smells like an assortment of dried fruits. This would probably go great with a fruit cake or figs. Cheese too; let's not forget cheese.

Taste is where this beer kinda loses me. Nothing standout here. Good balance, but nothing to bring it to the next level.
