Notes/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.

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.
