The Lost Abbey - Cuvee De Tomme 2008

2008 vintage. 375ml corked bottle. Pours into my tulip glass a deep dark, hazy cola brown color with a small light tan head on top that fades to a ring. Aromas start out with rich, intoxicating malts. Somewhat roasted with caramel, vanilla and raisins. Cherries are big in the nose alongside a tart funkiness with mild vinegar. Brown sugar and oak nuances with light bourbon.

First sip brings roasted, dark malts upfront with notes of caramel and vanilla. Raisins make quite an appearance as well. The middle brings a melding of sour cherries, oak tannins and a tart, somewhat funky brett aspect. Flows down with a whisper of bourbon and finishes quite dry with lingering cherry tones and a tart afterthought. Alcohol is nowhere to be found. A deeply multi-layered taste experience.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a smooth airy quality about it. Good carbonation all the way through. This is somewhat more acidic, with more woody tannins than the original black label bottles I've drank. Overall though, it's still a very tasty treat and I'm glad to have had the chance to sample this year's version. Cheers to Lost Abbey and the Sinner's Club.

Overall I gave this brew a rating of Amazing.
