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.

2012 pour at the Monk's Kettle. Dark amber/murky brown with an insignificant head. Aroma is partially toffee (likely oxidation), touches of sweet sugarcane, minor fruit esters. Nice mouthfeel with medium light tartness, Flavor is not entirely enticing. Interesting sour.
