Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: xlperro on 12-14-2006

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.

An excellent Flanders brown. Poured a dark brown (SRM 37) out of the tap. Minimal head. Medium tart, but balanced with the sweetness of the roasted malt, it is not too acetic and puckery. ABV listed at 11 percent, but there is absolutely no alcohol burn. Huge beer that manages to hide its alcohol in tartness and malt and notes of sour cherry and vanilla. Great take on the Flanders brown.

A little tart for my taste, but a high quality beer.

Sour cherry dominates. I get some barnyard, some oak and then some warmth in my tummy. Solid.

On tap at the Aptos St. BBQ. Been quite a while since I had the opportunity to try this well crafted beer. The wine barrel aging really dominates the flavor profile (at least that's what I detect, though the recipe doesn't list any wine barrel aging), giving the beer a lightly sour, wine infused finish. You still pick up some light chocolate and malty sweetness from the underlying base beer, and the overall combination of flavors is quite. Aptos St. was doing small, 5 ounce pours of this beer, which I found was just right for me (would have had difficulty sipping a pint or even a 12 ounce tulip of this beer). Overall, another solid effort from the folks at Lost Abbey.
