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. It’s perfect for those chilly winter days.

12 oz bottle. Aroma consists of caramel, toffee, raisins. Pours a ruby red hue with a medium beige head that falls after a minute. Taste is sweet and caramelly with no bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy, body is fairly thin. Not all that bad, really.

shrubber85 (7515) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Nutty brown sugar malt and light spicy/herbal aroma. Chestnut brown with moderate head. Sweet caramel malt and mildly bitter herbal hops flavor. Not bad but no Belgian characteristics - more just a straight forward brown ale.

Light chestnut brown with a full beige head. Sweet-tasting, with toffee, caramel, and fruit notes. Not bad.

Pershing (476) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Another Blue Moon Variety that pretty much taste like every other one. Bland Macro mouth feel with no head retention. The only difference is the color. I’m quite positive they used regular cane or Beet sugar and not Belgian sugar in this one. I wasn’t expecting much more. Just glad the 12 pack sampler was a gift.

Nate (3708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2013
On tap at Benjamin’s. Mild malty aroma, light cherry notes but otherwise watery. No discernible hops. Coppery red clear with thin head. Watery body with heavy carbonation. Mild malt notes, pretty sweet without substance. Neutral sugars. Light cherry wood sweet finish and light nutty bitter-sweet after.

bhensonb (10904) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours clear copper with an off-white head that left quickly. Aroma is sort of light treacle. Med body more or less. Flavor is very sweet. Treacle moving to caramel moving to toffee. I used to think those were all about the same, but this brew illustrates my error. It’s really too sugary (I can’t use malty). Meh.

Braudog (5623) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. Shiny red-brown with a thin but firm head. This beer comes with a very odd but distinct beef broth character -- sweet and malty to be sure, but what lingers in the background borders on a meaty stew. Interesting. (#5369, 12/15/2013)

Aurelius (4104) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2013
The usual Blue Moon label (nice, but hard to make distinctions). Twistoff longneck. Dark, clear, looks like slightly dilute cola. Nice malty aroma - toasted, candied, burnt sugars. Initial swig was a bit herbal, tangy, mostly dry, mineral, vaguely ’Belgian’. Medium to slightly heavy body. Very light astringency, a bit tannic at the end but overall the finish had a pretty good ring to it and was balanced nicely. Lightly candied finish with faint cocoa(?). ABC, Bull Run.

PorterPounder (5446) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, slightly hazy, decently thick eggshell white head. Aroma has some spiced pear accents, a touch of toffee. Flavor is mellow and warming with some nuttiness, a bit of toasted bread, a touch of brown sugar and toffee. Mouthfeel is smooth. Decent winter warmer.

gripweed57 (632) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a small bubbly beige head. Light toasted malt flavor with hints of yeast and burnt sugar. More sweet toasted malt flavor with tangy caramel backdrop. Some raisin and plum notes. Vanilla undertones. Finishes with a buttery malty mouthfeel.
