375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Nice khaki head. A few wisps. Islands atop a brown body.

Smell - Buckets of raisins. Cinnamon spice. Alcohol and dark fruits.

Taste - Lots of caramel malts and spices. Chocolatey. Finishes with dark fruits. Dry and raisiny.

Mouthfeel - Dry and boozy with high carbonation.

Overall - Dominated by spices and raisins. I don't get much from the peppers, though.

"Enjoy after 12/21/12" printed on the bottle. Purchased in the summer of 2012 and it stayed in my cellar since. Figured 1 year old and it was ready, but after opening, this could have aged nicely for a much longer time im thinking.
Corked bottle poured into my crooked stave tulip (yes, prob should have been my westy chalice...but whatever).
Pours a deep black ruby color with a finger of tan head, that shrinks into thin floating lacing. Aromas of chocolate a huge, dried fruit/date/raison with a hint of heat in the nose. Flavor is dried fruit/raison, chocolate, clove, with a great spicey finish. Wow...this is really nice. Super smooth and full bodied. The dried fruit really shines here but what separates this from most quads is the slight heat in the finish. Really a great brew.
Based on reviews, it seems like this one needs age. Well, regardless, I really enjoyed this one.

Served chilled into a fluted tulip.

Pours a rich mahogany brown with an inch plus of dark tan head that slowly recedes leaving heavy surface layer and moderate lacing.

Aromas of dried fruits, coconut and cola.

Flavors are a combination of marzipan and Malibu rum. Dried fruits, caramelized sugars, coconut and spice. As it warmed I got hints of pepper, sour cherry and bittersweet chocolate.

Medium bodied and sweet with a surprisingly dry, crisp finish. Moderate carbonation and a lingering but pleasant aftertaste.

Surprised to see some of the lower marks for this beer. It was simply one of the most complex and flavorful beers I've had. I have yet to be disappointed by The Lost Abbey.
