look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
750 ml corked and caged bottle purchased from Beverage Warehouse in Marina Del Rey for eleven dollars, split with my dad two nights ago, poured into my Stone pint glass
A-Deep dark brown with some red highlights, 3/4 inch creamy off white head that stuck around for a few minutes, some retention, nice lacing at the beginning
S-Raisins, sherry, different dark fruits, spices, cola, bready malt aromas, toffee, brown sugar, caramel, and many other sweet scents
T-Started off with a sweet taste that was filled with raisins and toffee, chewy malt in the middle, finish had a lot of booze in it, got syrupy pretty quickly after lots of carbonation at first, alcohol taste became stronger, some other dark fruits came to the surface and it became even sweeter, needed some distinct hops to provide some balance, too malty in my opinion
M-Lots of carbonation that I did not expect, medium to full bodied, sweet, boozy, tangy, and chewy mouthfeel, taste lingered for quite some time
D-Could not have finished this bottle by myself, barely got through my twelve ounces, heavy on the stomach, sweetness prevented it from being smooth, also hot alcohol was present
Not my favorite beer from Lost Abbey but above average for its style, did not think it was as good as friends had been saying it was, probably would not drink again for this price, interested to see how Cuvee de Tomme tastes since this is the base beer for it, worth trying though

3.98/5 rDev +1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance - dark brown with some carbonation and little to no lacing.
Smell - dark fruits, plum, fig, some chocolate. Reminds me of the smell of a Rochefort 10.
Taste - the dark fruits, figs and plums are predominate up front. Sweetens as it warms and has a boozy finish.
Mouthfeel - medium to high carbonation and full bodied.
Overall - a good beer up front. Lots of character and depth initially but does hold as it warms.
