4.4/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a tulip from a corked and caged bomber.

A- Figs and black pepper.

A- Ruby to amber with a thick beige head.

F- Slight warming alcohol. Flavors of raisins and figs. A slightly rummy flavor. Low to moderate fruity esters reminding me of a belgian beer, in a great way.

M- High carbonation and dry quality that clears the palate rapidly.

O- A super interesting beer with lots of depth. The fig type flavors are something I enjoy. This is my first Lost Abbey beer and I can say I'm a fan and that it lives up to the hype.

Serving type: bottle

Picked this up at a local wine and beer store here in SoCal on a whim. Was not disappointed at all. Was not overpowering but still had a great flavor. Stands up to its description. I tasted some dried fruits along with a little bit of banana bread and I'm a sucker for banana bread. This is definitely something I would pick up again.

3.45/5  rDev -11.5%
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
