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.

2009 bottling.

Oh buddy the aroma has tart as fuck written all over it. Can I handle this? Has it aged well?

Not much pop of the cork. Color is a dark brown. A few scattered bubbles clear out quick.

Vinous in almost every way aroma-wise with plenty of sour, dark fruits (including cherries of course) and an aftershock of vinegar. Some spent grain and

The taste is tart all the way, but not overwhelmingly so. Suprisingly balanced with a medley of ripe fruits mixed with sour fruits, yeast, vinegar, and a bit of vanilla and spice.

The alcohol heat is trumped by the flavor, and barely noticeable.

This one didn't seem to suffer at all for it's age, and maybe I'm just getting used to sours, but I'm going to finish this one off and wish for more.
