COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We crafted our single-style abbey ale with select roasted malts, a hint of Belgian sugar, and a touch of wheat for a rich, caramel flavor and a wonderfully smooth toffee finish. Itís perfect for those chilly winter days.

Bottle from Rite Aid: Aroma is faint and almost non- existent but some sweet malt are there. The flavor is bland with the primary flavor being a sweet base of syrupy malts and a minor note of cheap artificial Belgian yeast. Appearance was a solid mahogany brown with tiny amount of foam. Taste watered down for being a Belgian beer style but the alcohol warmth the beer gives off does seem fitting.

Actually a very, very good beer despite the ratings. True to the style in aroma and flavor. My score is partially biased due to the fact that I didnt expect it to taste as good as it does. Hands down Best beer of the blue moon brand.

Sweet almost make noise with a but of skunk. Mild carbonation. Fairly sweet in the mouth, maple and toffee. Finishes a but sweet and musty. Drinkable, unremarkable. Would be a decent post ski drink I guess.

From a bottle. Thanks Joe! Pours almost clear copper brown with no head. Tastes like very sweet malt, a little buttery, musky, nutty grains. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet malt, nutty grains.

sonnycheeba (5078) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark amber with absolutely no head retention. Aroma is bready malts, raisins, light toast, faint fig, and some faint Belgian yeast esters. Flavor is so, so bland with some notes of bready and caramel malts, dark fruits, and very faint hops. Medium body and seemingly no carbonation.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle. Deep copper pour with a small head. Nose of strong Belgian yeast. Light pepper spice. Strong red apple and toffee. Taste is pretty one-dimensional. Loads of toffee. Red apple. Little else. Medium body, soft carb. Mediocre.

DrnkMcDermott (3003) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle. Suitable brown color of an abbey ale, with a bit of ruby highlight. A Belgian sugar smell and taste, just at the edge of being too sugary. Works out all right.

This rich dark brown ale has a mildly sweet aroma of brown sugar and a smokey caramel flavor. It drinks really smooth and clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a dark brown watery looking color. Taste is kind of artificial sweet with some banana, clove and cinnamon. Will not purchase again

12oz bottle - There are so many variances of a Belgian ale. Some light, some dark, some strong, some weak, some hoppy, some malty. This is definitely one of the dark, weak, malty variety and itís really good. I donít care who makes it, itís done well and it was quite enjoyable. Malty, plummy, toffee, medium-high carbonation with a lingering sweet finish. Really quaffable.
