The Lost Abbey
California, United States

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.

Notes from a tasting on 12/6. Big thanks to mike for the share.

Enjoyed from a lost abbey teku. vintage 2009?

bottle opened WITHOUT a pop (uh oh). pours still as the night. maroonish purple. smells super sour and rubbery. tastes like a brown ale with some funk and oak. definitely sour. rubbery sourness. i wish it was the beer without the barrel since the base beer seems interesting. little acetone, some heat, but flat like crazy...overally drinkable, but the lack of carbonation is a big let down.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

on-tap, brouwers

appearance: 12oz pour in an unbranded snifter, muddy amber body, soapy white suds and a light filmy lace

smell: bourbon, tart and sweet cherry, oak, brown sugar

taste:intermingling of tart and sweet cherries, moderate notes of bourbon, oak, vanilla and brown sugar, raisin and caramel. Interesting, but not all it was cracked out to be.

mouthfeel: light tartness, oily, light bourbon bite

overall: pretty good - would have a hard time justifying the sticker price on a bottle though
