Served from 375 bottle into snifter glasses at City Beer in San Francisco. Writing based on 3-week-old notes.
A: Chocolate brown. Medium off-white head with decent retention.
S: Oak, Brett funk, cherries, chocolate / mocha. Pretty aromatic.
T: Fresh cherries, dipped in chocolate and gingerbread crumbs. The sourness and oak appear after the initial flavors. Clean finish.
M: Fizzy and decently carbonated. Fairly light-bodied.
O: Very solid, and I'm not usually a huge Lost Abbey fan.
Serving type: bottle
