did anyone ever try this? I am with the OP in that this might be one of my favorite beers on the planet. I would love to get a batch going so it can be ready by winter.

Actually I have 11gallons in the basement and it has been fermenting for about 3 weeks. The recipe I came up with was derived from reading this post http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/cuve...̡

Not close to the real thing. I am working on a newer formulation that I think just might hit it dead on.

Hi, I brewed something that came out similar to this. I'll do a side by side test, but i think the wheat would be a great addition:

Are the fundamental ingredients to dark strong ales. Clearly Lost Abbey uses these ingredients so it make it much tougher to figure out! I'd try keeping to a base of American and not English 2 row, and be very restraint with the specialty malts. The best of the best authentic Belgians make these with incredibly simple grist bills and let the dark sugar layer in the complexity.

Has anyone nailed this yet? I absolutely LOVE this beer. It'd be awesome to brew at home.
