Beer added by: scottoale on 05-08-2007

A stronger version of our Lost and Found Abbey Ale brewed to a more contemplative alcohol content. Massive in every stretch of the brewing way possible this is the sort of beer that will remind a beer drinker who considers themselves a saint that even saints stray as sinners from time to time.

Pours dark brown, almost black, with a big tan foam head and lots of splashy lace. A slight foamy cap and ring stays forever.

Great nose. Rosemary, mint, dark malt.

An oddly herbal version of the style. Rosemary and bitter notes up front. Alcohol, bitter brown malt next. Charred sugars and some raisin, but there is no sweetness. Finishes bitter and kinda dry. God this needs a drop of sugar.

Fuller bodied, some carbonation.

Great beer, but hard to get thru the big bottle. Very bitter and herbal. Beer for grown ups, but off-balance a bit. I liked it, but not a favorite.

750ml bottle, 2008 vintage. Been hanging on to this and a few other Lost Abbey's for a few years

A - Pours a dark, dark brown. Surprisingly good head on pour that settles down to a mudium ring.
S - Hmm... Some malty sweetness that reminds me of dark Belgian candy sugar, hints of funk with a sour tinge to the end.
T - Fairly sweet, with strong notes of raisins and other muddled dark fruits. Some Belgian yeasty esters as well.
M - Sweet, but not cloying. Smooth, can't detect the high ABV, a big sipper, yet drinkable.
O - Not bad, not bad at all. Held up surprisingly well for a four year old brew, but some of the components have obviously died down at his point. The individual flavors have melded quite well. I don't know where the funk/sour in the nose comes from, but it's certainly nowhere in the taste. Overall, glad I got to see what it turned into after four years.
