Notes / Commercial Description:
A stronger version of our Lost and Found Abbey Ale brewed to a more contemplative alcohol content. Massive in every stretch of the brewing way possible this is the sort of beer that will remind a beer drinker who considers themselves a saint that even saints stray as sinners from time to time.

Pours a nice brown-black with tan creamy head.

Vinous, raisin, fig, black pepper, clove, and some chocolate aromas rise from the fluid.

This is much fruiter than Lost Abbey's other Strong Dark and a little less malty/chocolaty. Starts with an acidic vinous character that moves into sweeter raisin, dried cherry, and prune flavors. Some pepper, cinnamon, and dark chocolate in the finish. Contemplative.

Smooth and chewy mouthfeel that finishes very dry. Yet another great beer from Lost Abbey. This would pair well with a dark chocolate.

pours a nice murky mahogany with a huge soapy head that lasts a minute. nose; big figs, hops, & booze. sign me up! taste; light chocolate malt, raisin, light honey, rosemary, fig, earthy hops, & some rummy booze. cocoa, hops, & raisin on the end. medium+ carbonation & slightly heavy mouthfeel. the herbal rosemary may be a tad much here, and ethanol is present at 12% abv, but it's not harsh. a nice, punchy dark-fruit belgian with some nice chocolate & cocoa touches. :)
