The Lost Abbey
California, United States

Notes / Commercial Description:
Modeled after the great Trappist and Monastic beers that inspired the founding of our brewery. A richly deep garnet colored ale created from a blend of Domestic and imported malts. As part of our commitment to interesting brewing endeavors, Chef Vince created a special raisin puree for this beer. Malts, raisins and a fantastic yeast strain working in harmony produce a beer of amazing complexity and depth.

Pours a rusty dark brown. Only a touch of light coming through creating an amber hue. Two finger tall head that is somewhat billowing.

Smells of a nicely balanced dubbel, lots of sweet raisins and a touch of molasses and toffee. Has a creamy almond herbal vanilla note. Taste is well balanced as well. The malty presence is fairly high. All the notes blend but by themselves represent a subtle raison, plum, and molasses. Creamy and slick with a slight bitter of a peppery yeast bite. Feels round yet still very drinkable.

Overall, it's so well balanced that it's something I definitely will have again. Tasty, highly drinkable dubbel.
