Port/Lost Abbey brewing is hands down one of the best breweries in the world.  Their wide array of beers and styles continue to prove themselves year after year and award after award.  From their year round beers like the Wipe Out IPA, to the seasonal beers such as Satna’s Little Helper, Witches Wit and High Tide IPA.  So we decided to review every Port/Lost Abbey beer we could get our hands on.   

Shark Attack Double Red Ale, 9.0% ABV, Port Brewing Company. 

The Shark Attack Double Red Ale has strong hoppy and malty characters with peppery spice notes and a smooth finish.  Great American Amber… 

Old Viscosity Ale, 10.0% Port Brewing Company. 

The Old Viscosity has the scent of a porter but the taste of a stout.  The bottle even boasts to tease the drinker by refusing to reveal whether it’s a stout or a porter.  It certainly worked because we argued about it for more than a half hour.  The Old Viscosity has chocolate and spice notes and is super smooth for a porter but excellent for a stout as well.  This imperial porter stout is a flat out A plus. 

Judgment Day, 10.5% ABV, The Lost Abbey. 

The Judgment Day Quadrupel Belgian has a sweet Belgian nose and a sweet flavor.  Dark brown and purple in color, the Judgment Day light on carbonation and lacks bite but is still full flavored with a unique mouth feel.

The Devotion Belgian Pale Ale is intense on flavor with a little kick.  It’s also light but has good bite and good carbonation.  It has notes of malt and fruit but is a little too light for a Belgian Pale Ale. 

Hop-15 Ale, 10.0% ABV, Port Brewing Company. 

The Hop-15 Ale is a sour but subtle in hoppiness for a double IPA.  Although it’s not too flowery, which we love, there is little carbonation, almost like a Harpoon.  The Hop-15 is sweet, malty, and robust with a perfect character of hops.    

 Wipe Out IPA, 7.0% ABV, Port Brewing.

The Wipe Out San Diego Style I.P.A. struck us as perfect balance of hops.  The combination of the Amarillo, Centennial, and Simcoe hops is brilliant.  It was quite possibly the best beer we’ve ever drank.

    Bring on the haters but although I really enjoyed the Port Brewing styles, the Belgian Lost Abbey styles fell a little short for me.
