Fiery in color and intent, our Belgian Abbey is creamy and smooth with a thrust of spice in the aroma and a climactic finish.

Tap sample. Poured hazy brown color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Medium roasted malt and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium spicy sweet flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew.

Dogbrick (8664) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Clear copper color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Fruit, yeast and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of earthy yeast, malt and fruit. The finish is fruity up front with a mildly spicy yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

Nice spicy Belgian ale. Amber with a lot pH phenolic yeast presence. Not bad.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2006
On tap at the Ale Asylum. Poured a hazy, darker, murky brown with a light ring of off-white head. Almost sickeningly-sweet aroma with pears, some darker fruits, and peppery spices. Flavor also found bunches of sweet fruits and peppery spices that rose in prominence as this warmed up.. rather complex, but again too sweet for me. Flowed somewhat well on the palate but was hard to drink a lot of.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a hazy dark copper amber with a nicely-lacing off-white head. Aroma of fresh, lightly biscuity Belgian malt with a touch of yeast and light citrus. Body starts fairly full with some nice lightly sweet caramel malt and an orange citrus balance toward a bready, semi-dry finish. A nice Belgian ale.

DrSilverworm (6946) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Taste on tap at the brewery. Mostly clear red orange color. Thin off-white khaki head. Leaves good rows of lace. Caramel malt, nutty flavor. Lightly spicy, some toasty belgian yeast. Medium to bigger body. More dry finish. Smooth, lighter carbonation, full body. Moderate bitter taste. Light sweet. Solid flavorful belgian ale.

Had on tap at the brewpub. It was a bit spicy and slightly overbearing for the style, but really not too bad.
