3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft served in a snifter at the brewpub where it is listed as "9.3%" ABV.
Clear dark reddish amber with a weak head.the aroma is a bit weak too, yet it has plenty of flavor. Some dark fruit, including dates, in the flavor and more medium roasted malt than usual. A touch of smoke in the finish.
Medium body with proper, medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the pub in South Beach. The lightly hazy, reddish-brown body is crowned by a small, creamy head of beige colored foam that settles in to a thin layer. Minimal, spotty lacing dots the glass. The aroma shows notes of cocoa, hazelnut, caramel, and brown sugar, with hints of various dark and earthy fruits. Flavors are very similar, quite nutty and chocolaty, with loads of sweet dates and figs. Thereís a light earthiness that seems to keep things grounded, not allowing it to get overly sweet. The body is substantial, but perhaps just a bit the style. Still, itís smooth, easy drinking, and not a bit hot or sticky. Overall, this is not bad at all. Pretty nice, in fact.

Draft at the Abbey. Amber orange pour with good offwhite head. Nose and flavor is very sweet with just the tiniest twinge of alcohol on the nose. Very sweet brown syrupy body.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed on tap at the brewery, with the owner and with Josh Oakes and Beershine. A mild aroma. Chocolate dark, nice lacing. A bit sour which detracted. Above-average mouthfeel rom the yeast. Hard to believe its contracted out to Florida Brewing. A sipper.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
A waste of money, this was a watered down buttery farmhouse tasting abbey. All my friends were drinking St. Bernardus and I was drinking this. Never again. Not bad, but definitely not good.
