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.

I had a Red Poppy the other day and it had carbonation, and also tasted pretty damn good. I decided to give Flat Abbey another try with this. The most recent vintage.

Appearance - "Pop" Just kidding. As I pull the cork out I don't even hear the slightest bit of a hiss. This is not looking good. Pouring into my RR Tulip with a vigorous pour, I achieve zero head. Awesome.

Smell - Dark fruit, sour and tart aromas, oak, slight barnyard funk. The nose does not impress me nearly as much as Red Poppy.

Taste - I taste alcohol up front followed by dark fruits such as sweet cherries, prunes, and raisins. Slight oak and vanilla. Not enjoyable since it is completely flat.

Mouthfeel - Tastes like medium bodied flat beer. Does finish a hint dry.

Overall - Sadly, I have two more of these in my cellar. Perhaps with time they may gain a little carbonation. I obviously know LA is known to have carbonation issues but you would think after all this time, and with there being carbonation in this year's Red Poppy, it would have been fixed. I refuse to rate this high because of the slight hype around this or to justify the price. To be honest, this was probably the worst $16 dollars I have spent on beer. The flavors didn't impress me, the beer was flat, and the alcohol was noticeable. Red Poppy was much more enjoyable. I really haven't given LA much business in the past due to known carbonation issues and this has affirmed I will pretty much stay away from them in the future. They do put out some good stuff but I refuse to drop that much money on a beer that does not perform. Additionally, don't try to claim "it is supposed to be that way." There should be SOME carbonation. Mine had ZERO. It was a flat boozy mess. Not impressive at all.

2010 Vintage, Sinners Club item.

Beer pours flat, little sign of carbonation, whisps of lacing on the top. Dark body with reddish hues, murky and smooth looking. Aromas are immediately cherries and brett, slight smoke, sweet malt, slight vinegar, cinnamon, honey. Taste is interesting and complicated; chocolate cherries quickly upfront, followed by bourbon vanilla, some malt somewhere in there. Slight alcohol burn, not really too tart; sourness contribution could be confused between cherries or bacteria. Slightly medicinal but well balanced flavors. Slick mouthfeel, barely perceptible carbonation tickles the tongue, medium bodied. Pretty darn drinkable, if any one of the characteristics got too out of whack, drinkability would have suffered for me. It will be interesting to see how this one ages and tastes in a year.

Got this from Bitterbill, cheers Bill!

Pour black/chestnut with a bit of tan head & no real pop when the cork is removed. Nice vicious look to this, zero head retention & lacing

D: Prunes, figs, sourness & oak notes. Opens up even more once warm

T: Follows the nose, hints of vanilla, a touch of booze, raisins & cherry juice up front. Dryness & vanilla are fairly prevalent as this warms along with boosey cherries & figs. Finishes dry, tart, figgy & with dry oakyness, plus a kiss of booze

MF: Slick, medium bodied; smooth carbonation is noticable. The fruitty sweetness melds well with the tartness/sourness. Nice warming sensations as well, but some boozeyness is present

Super drinkabilty for the style & ABV

2011 release. Poured into a wine glass
A- Dark brown with a light red hugh. No carbonation at all. Beer is supposed to be carbonated.

S- very, very complex smell here. its tough to pick things out, so I will just list everything I smell with no specific order: vanilla, little rubbing alcohol, vanilla, sour cherry, Belgian candi sugar, light bourbon

T- slightly less complex than the smell, but still really complex - the smell was just hugely complex. I would say its very close to the smell though, but a bit more cherry and also sour cherry

M- not great because of the carbonation, but nice thick feel besides that

D-For 11% and despite it being un-carbed, I am hugely impressed with this beer. I could rink a bomber easy - with such a huge beer, thats saying something

The color and life of cloudy flat Dr. Pepper. I obviously drew the short straw on this bottle and got something with no carbonation. No head, no lace, no carbonation. Lifeless. Aroma and taste make up some for the poor appearance. Lots of cherries, some oak, some acetone from the alcohol. The taste is phenomenally complex. Tart, a bit of alcohol in the middle, cherries and oak, finishing a bit buttery with a mild bitterness. Due to the absence of carbonation, mouthfeel was flat. The only thing keeping the rating above 1 was the medium body.

I am saddened that I was cursed with a sub-par example of this beer, made all the more painful due to the hefty price tag ($16 for 375ml). I am sure that with a bit of carbonation this is a world class brew (or with a bit more alcohol a great port like fermented beverage). Perhaps one day, I will venture back to the North County to try Cuvee De Tomme again. Until then, I am left with the memory of what may be the poorest value beer I have ever purchased.

'09 vintage poured from a 750 ml bottled at Imminent Liquidation this past weekend - thanks to whoever brought this!

A - Nice look but nothing head, dark ruby red in color, hazy and murky...

S - Oak, sweet berry fruits, some musky notes that went away after this breathed a bit, tart lemon/citrus juice.

T - Now this is what I'm talking about...tart strawberry and blackberry flavors, with some dry tannins, oak wood and an overall sweetness.

M - Thankfully this '09 bottle is carbonated, but not overly so. It's evident it's mellowed but no where near flat like some of the other '09 Lost Abbey bottles. Bubbly, medium-bodied and juice-like body.

D - I could drink this all the time. Great tasting beer but it can't be perfect considering how high the alcohol is, though it's as close I can get put it for a Wild Ale.

This was the highlight of the tasting for me personally. A beer I've been seeking out for quite some time and it was really nice to be able to sample this one.

Pours amazingly wonderful, dark brown/red with a big thick head and tons of visible bubbles and lacing.

smell is so wierd, all minerals and sour brett funk, some woody earthy smells but everything is just strange, it smells how vitamins taste.

Taste is really amazing and uber complex - a dry leathery character along with sour cherries, prunes, dried figs and bitter interesting and unique.

feel is good - not too slick, not too light

drinkability is really hard to judge - i was happy with a 6oz pour and wouldn't have wanted another one, it was just so so so complex and intense, like no sour or wild ale i've ever had - wholly unique, very interesting and very wierd.

2010 vintage. Thanks to ahalloin for sharing this one.

A: Dark brown with light brown highlights with no head and lacing.

S: Nice complex smell: part sour, part oak aged wine like vine character, part dark malt, and part dark cherry and raisin.

T: Follows the smell but wasn't as complex as I hoped. Much, much more cherries than the smell. Some oak and wheat tastes intermingle with sour tanins and red wine. Seems a little confused.

M: Could use some carbonation. Smooth and nice feel though.

D: Ok but not great.

2009 vintage opened because it is Friday. opened with a nice pop but no gushing.

A. Nothing special here. Very little head. An appareling ruby red hue.

S. A bit musty, lots of oak, some fruity sweetness, and no hint of booze.

T&m. Initially a nice cherry tartness wakes up the taste buds, accompanied by just a hint of funk. There is a tannic oaky aftertaste that dries out the sweetness and balances everything. The bourbon at this point on this older bottle is almost imperceptable. Very well hidden alcohol at 11%. A nice balanced carbonation lets the flavors do the talking.

D. Like most wilds, a little bit goes a long way, but this is one I wouldn't mind sipping for quite a while. Very nice and worth seeking out.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Not much here, It's a bit murky and thin looking. The color is consistent with a normal quad but the way it moves in the glass gives me a idea that this one isn't vicious at all.

Smell- The smell is a bit sour with some slight Belgian notes of sweet sugar. It's a bit hard to separate the two on the nose alone but I get something unique each time I smell this one. Maybe some sour cherries and fig/raisin notes that come in and out.

Taste- My first impression was this is a great red wine. It really does have very similar notes as a good wine. Initially I thought this is a run of the mill quad spiked with brett and nothing more. I get all the great characteristics one desires in a Belgian quad. The sourness is dominant and doesn't leave a whole lot of room for anything else. This is apparent form the beginning to finish. I'm planning on laying this one down for a year or so and seeing if the sourness fades. It may take a while..

Mouth- A bit thin and very little of any carbonation.
Drink- I don't get a lot of booze on this one despite the high abv but the sourness makes this hard to drink.

Serving type: bottle, 375ml

Good old sweemzander the cellar master cracked this one during a night of wilds. Poured into a tulip.

A: Cinnamon brown, no head, no lace. Uh oh!

S: Tart, funky and fruity. A good amount of citrus with a mild lactic punch. Just enough hay and damp basement to remind you this is a wild. Sweet dark fruits are represented as well. Definitely pick up the bourbon.

T: Pretty much a mirror of the nose. Juicy citrus fruits. Along with a decent funky band aid and wet oak. Cherries seem to push through as the dominant dark fruit. Good amount of bourbon. No heat. which is amazing considering the ABV.

M: Fullish to medium body. Carbonation is just fine.

D: Actually quite tasty. I had no problem finishing my glass. I think the heavy dose of cherry helped a lot for me.

A: poured a dark brown in color with brown highlights that had almost no head and left virtually no lacing sticking to the glass.

S: could definitely sniff out the bourbon with vanilla, dark fruits, mild bretty funky, and lots of hot booze notes.

T: Everyone talks about the cherry, however I'm not tasting it. More bourbon and booze. Maybe time will help it to settle down. Hope I have some yeast for additional carbonation. palate with dark fruit oaky accents but had caramel and mild citrus notes.

M: the brew was medium in body with a low amount of carbonation which had a fruity, oaky, boozy, and tart finish.

D: What can I say? A lot of differences of opinion here. It was labeled as an AWA, but this is hardly that. The finish is long and boozy heavily on bourbon and less on sour. Some slightly unpleasant vinegarish tingling throughout. Well-crafted, but a little hot.

2009 Vintage! Served from bottle into a green Man snifter. Poured a deep reddish brown with a half finger very light tan head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, cherries, sour, and oak. The flavor was of sweet malt, cherries, sour, tart, oak, and slight alcohol. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. I was really glad that I got a chance to try this one. I wish I had a 2010 vintage to be able to compare as this one seems like it might have dropped off in the flavor department some as compared to it being fresh in my opinion. Still very good, don't get me wrong, but could be better. Had a nice aroma and decent flavor here. Worth trying without a doubt.

Pours a slow deep red. Very little carbonation to it. Aroma of cherry, oak, bitter/sourness.

Taste, nice and tangy, balanced sweetness and sour, wood flavor, red tannins, tinge of vanilla. Alcohol extremely well hidden. Really enjoyed what it brought to the table. The sour aspect made sense that this wasn't all that carbonated, so quit complaining about it, I think its that way with good reason (complimentary).

Drinkability is a little low because the stuff is just so dang expensive ($40 at the goat) and isn't too easy to find around my parts. This was the 09 version.

Presentation: 375 mL corked and caged bottle that I shared with a friend. Served chilled and poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. 2010 vintage. Thanks to buzbuzzer for this.

Appearance: Cloudy dark brown in color with some reddish highlights. Not much head at all on the pour.

Aroma: The red wine is really assertive, especially here. I'm not sure if its the barrels or the combination of fruit and dark ale, but I definitely get a strong pinot noir note. Tart cherries, molasses, raisans, and a touch of bourbon heat are definitely noticable here as well. Nicely complex and even some balance.

Taste: Again, big wine notes off the top. Oak and pinot noir dominate. The cherries add a nice fruitines then meld into a nice sour component. Some funk here as well. Among all this, there are still notes of a good quad floating in and out. Molasses and dark fruits add a nice sweet component. The bourbon really only presents in some heat. I think a little age on this might have improved the balance significantly and allowed the bourbon to shine more. At the same time, I think the fruit might have faded a bit and I really enjoyed the fresh cherry flavors.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, but perhaps a little undercarbonated. Not a flat mess like a couple of Lost Abbey beers I've had though.

Drinkability: At this stage, this beer is pretty hot. Even with some age though, I have to imagine this is meant to sip.

Overall, a really interesting, unique, complex beer that I enjoyed for the most part. Definitely has its flaws but certainly worth trying. The sour component works well with the quad and the cherries are very nice. I would love to try an older vintage of this sometime to see how it evolves over a couple years.

Bottle. 2007 vintage. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass a slightly murky reddish mahagony color with a slight tan colored head that collars around the glass. Swirling does does some minimal head. Sour cherries right off the bat in the nose along with acetone sourness. Oaky as well. Wow, that has a lot going in the flavor. Sourness right off the bat with a malty belgian backbone. Some red wine type flavors as well in the end along with a dry finish. Light/medium mouthfeel. The 11.5% is in there but not really all that noticeable. Very easy drinking and smooth. Overall, I am very pleased with this in so many ways, the flavors are really nice, the sour/tart is there but not too much, and its carbonated nicely.

236th review on BA
bottle to wine glass
C/C 375 ML

App- By no means is this a pretty beer. It's actually quite ugly. A murky light brown with about six bubbles in the glass.

Smell- Smells like a quad except it had a nice tartness to it. Had some cherry, fig and other dark fruit.

Taste- I don't normally give out the elusive 5 but this deserved it. This wasn't even a beer anymore. A red wine disguised as a beer. This was a smooth tart and big beer. Lightly sour and tart with the quad taste behind it. I loved it.

Mouth- This coated the mouth with a nice cherry flavor. A bit light with a light carb feel to it. Not sure what year this was but the carb level felt fine to me. Not flat at all.

Drink- 11% and no trace of it on each sip. I'm glad my bottle shop had one for me. This was a great beer. Sad I could only buy 1.

T: Taste is wham, surprise, grapes vinegar and sour cherry, combo of dark and light cherry but more dark, sour. Hints of vanilla, not so much bourbon, frapes, some spice but this ios very much red wine territory

M: Nice, low carbonated but I liked it like this. Flavors and booze mesh well

D: Very good and great example of the style.

2010 Vintage.

A= Pours a dark hazy brownish color with no head on it and no lacing. Actually looks totally flat. Nothing much going on here.

S= The smell is quite interesting. A dark fruit smell with some oak to it and a slight sour note coming through. The dark fruit I would say plays the dominate roll in the odor and the sourness makes it sort of smell like a sour grape juice in a way.

T= The taste is about what I would expect. A big quad for the base of this one with tons of dark fruit fig and rasins in the flavor then the acid hits you. Grape skins and sour tart cherries come through. Tannins and oak take the back seat with a little vanilla coming through as well. The finish is deliciously sour and is very reminicent of sour cherries.

M= Flat as a board. Nothing going on.

D= Tasty indeed. Wish it was carbonated but there is nothing here. Flat as a board.

750 ml bottle split and poured into a tulip. 11.0% ABV, 2009 Vintage.

Oh look, another wild shared by the "King of Wilds" himself, sweemzander. Brew #5 for the evening.

A - Completely uninteresting hazy pond-water brown in color with a quickly fleeting head, there is absolutely nothing left over. No foam, no bubbles, no lace. Damn, this is an ugly beer.

S - Deep amber malts and Belgian yeast notes of fruity esters; dark cherries and fig. Notes of wild Brett funk blend well with the rest of the brew.

T - Sharp tart flavor of Brett funk all over the place with complex but largely hidden fruity notes of cherry and fig with a trace of raisins. Bitter-like hoppy finish balances the whole cuveƩ nicely.

M - Sharp tart sourness and spritzy carbonation with a crisp, light finish that's a little bit on the dry side.

D - Ok drinkability and nice blend of the fruity esters with the wild funk but after the great wilds of the night so far, it's the least drinkable on the totem pole.

2009 rate.

2007 bottle, thanks Tom. Pours a dark coca-cola brown with a small wisp of a white head. Really sour initial aroma, a bit of sour cherries and balsamic vinegar. First impression upon sipping is of a strong malt base, with chocolate and some dark fruits, yielding to a lighter sourness, heavy with sour cherries and apple vinegar. Nicely integrated flavor. The malt is surprisingly strong here, the strong, heavy malt is a signature of most lost abbey brews I find, and it actually works kind of well with this one. Some alcohol heat around the edges, which makes sipping a bit of a chore at times. The finish is long and leans heavily on the light sour components. Some slightly unpleasant vinegarish tingling throughout. Well-crafted, but strangely heavy and a little hot.

'09 bottle poured into a Mother Earth tulip glass. Thanks to mikedashg for trading me this one.

Upon the initial pour, this beer didn't look like anything special. It was a dark reddish-brown with a very small amount of white head and looked like it might be a little flat.

The smell was oak, sour cherries and hints of funkiness and alcohol.

It wasn't until I tasted this one that it truly took off for me though. I'm a big sour beer nut, and I find that a lot of sours taste similar to one another, but this beer is very unique, different and sensational. Sour cherries definitely are the most prominent flavor, but there's a good amount of oak going on here as well. The maltier base also backed up the sour flavor better than most of the lighter sour beers I've had.

The mouthfeel also is unique, as the beer is heavier and more full-bodied than any sour I've ever had. It coats your mouth before the dry finish. It's not super carbonated, but I didn't find that it made my experience of drinking it any less enjoyable, and the carbonation level was just fine for the beer.

This beer is ridiculously easy to drink and I was shocked to see that it was 11% ABV on the bottle. I could drink a bunch of these and drink myself into oblivion quite easily (if I had more than one bottle, that is).

Lost Abbey has a lot of detractors, but thus far they are 2/2 with me (this and Deliverance). I can honestly say that this is one of the best wild ales I've ever had and a truly unique beer for fans of sours.

Sweet and tangy, that's how I would describe this. Truly deep ruby with mahagony highlights. No head, light tan ring, no lacing. No carb either. Fantastic aroma of sour cherry, vanilla, bourbon, oak and lactic sourness. I also get brown sugar and a nice graham cracker crust aroma. Very complex taste: quad base is nice, thick malts with raisin undertones, cherry comes in with notes of vanilla and oak, tartness meets the palate on the back end and is lightly sour,, could/should be more sour. The sour note cleans up what would otherwise be a cloying beer. Slick mouthfeel from the lack of carb. Fairly drinkable for a huge beer. Down sides-poor carb even after holding this beer at above cellar temp for weeks.

EDIT: drinking a 2008 bottle, very different then fresh. The nose is muted, but the flavor is kicked up. Much more sour, acetic, vinegar, and sour cherry. Still very low carb even after almost three years. Glad I had this when I did. Drink 'em if you got 'em because I think its peaking.

750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a stemmed glass. 2009 Vintage. Huge thanks to hophead247 for this one!

(A)- Pours a rather dark brewed coffee-like color. Produced a quickly dissipating light tan colored head. Minimal lacing.

(S)- A rich, raisin rich profile with equally potent sour cherries and a hint of acidic sourness. More hints at dates, plums, and molasses amidst the mildly acidic profile.

(T)- Very similar to the smell. A rich, yet tart and sour cherry and date acidic character. Hints at cocoa and more acidic sourness.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. A good acidic sourness combined with a rich raisin, date, and cocoa dark fruits. Complex.

(D)- A unique and dynamic, yet fitting take on the style. Obviously a darker representation, but it does pull it off well. Worth acquiring and enjoying. I rather enjoyed this one.
