Notes / Commercial Description:
Once upon a time it was the most award winning Pizza Port beer of all time. Now it has found a new home at The Lost Abbey.

A massive brown ale base that is made from four fermentable sugars including Malted Barley, Raisins, Candi Sugar and Sour Cherries, this beer is fully fermented before being placed in Bourbon barrels where the beer ages for one year with the Sour Cherries and the wild Brettanomyces yeast that we inoculate the barrels with.

One tap at Capone's during Philly beer week. Served in a 5.5 oz nonic glass.

Appearance: Pours brown with hints of red. Small head dissipates relatively quickly.

Smell: Sour cherry, lacto, some slight malt sweetness cuts through that sourness as well.

Taste: Same sour cherry and lactic acid character that dominated the aroma. Also accompanied by a medium high sourness. Slight sweet caramel presence comes through as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Medium levels of lively carbonation. Yes you read that right. It's carbed! (I realize carbonation in this beer is a bottle issue. Lighten up)

Overall: Another really good one from Lost Abbey. I can't speak for the bottled version, but on tap this was excellent. Really glad I finally got to try it.

Poured from a 350mL bottle into a Koningshoven chalice.

A: No head at all. The color is dark plum and is not transparent. Interesting. Remarkably purplish.

S: Gently tart. Rich and fruity. Heady and pleasant.

T/M: Oh wow. Mindbendingly puckery. Ridiculously tart and acidic, especially for a beer otherwise so mellow and sweet. This is an amazing beer, that is likely to be a little too sour for many. Very fruit forward, very tasty.

O: The sourness can almost hide the alcohol content, but the telltale sticky sweetness on the endtaste conveys all the booziness of a good brandy. Would love to drink again.
