BREWVIEW ON THE LOST ABBEY 10 COMMANDMENTS

APPEARANCE / THE POUR:
Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan colored, dense head. Good Belgian lace in the glass. Excellent meniscus for this style of beer.

AROMA / BOUQUET:
Of course heavy in the raisins, and a strong treacle toffee aroma. The herbal character of the rosemary balances perfectly. There is an alcohol “sting” as well in the bouquet.

TASTE:
Bitter raisin, with a great deep earthiness to it. You can taste the rosemary in the background.

MOUTHFEEL / PALATE:
Body is medium to full, the texture is sticky, nice hop / rosemary bitterness at the top of the mouth. The finish is very long, malty, yet herbal.
