Black and brown pour, thin beige head, I guess looks closest to Red Poppy. Aroma was in the vein of Angel's share, deliverance stuff with plenty of boozy aromas from different kinds of barrels.

Taste was a hodgepodge of toffee, caramel, bourbon, brandy, tobacco, leather, dark cherry, rum, oak. Blended with minimal amounts of sour beer, the sour ratio is underwhelming letting the heavier Lost Abbey blends dominate the mouthfeel and taste.

Zero carbonation or "fizz", no bubbles. flat. Cloudy brown brew. Awful appearance.

Funky sweet/sour aroma. Lots of vanilla, oak, apple, pear, fig, honey, bright. Unique aroma. Nicely built. Hot.

Flat as two pancakes. Nice forward sourness followed by a rush of barrel sweetness and booze. Loads of brandy, boozey sour pears, chewy, robust well rounded flavors. Opens nicely when warmed close to room temps.

This brew kicks ass. It has aged gracefully; seek and destroy. Lost "Flat" Abbey did a very nice job with this brew.

Pour is dark ruby red, slightly hazed, and virtually no head. Nose is heavy dark malt, cardboard and soy sauce with a light bit of cherry. Taste is brutal, slightly sour and tons of soy sauce and oxidation. The complete lack of carbonation makes the finish brutal with a fair bit of tart cherry.

375 mL bottle poured into a wine glass.

Appearance - Pours dark brown reddish body. No head. Lifeless.

Smell - Ooh, nice. Brandy. Some red wine notes. Lots of caramel and deep brown sugar. Slight acidity.

Taste - Much more sour. Lactic sourness. Dark caramel. Much more red wine. Slight vinegar notes in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Flat. Nice sourness and very complex.

Overall - Very enjoyable. Complex sour flavors. Awesome.
