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. It’s perfect for those chilly winter days.

My wife purchased this because we had oranges :). Its ok with or without the orange. Not sure the description of good chilly nights really fits.

subsonic (82) - Pataskala, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Bold mahogany colored with a small sudsy textured, off white head that settles far too quickly. Very thin ringlet is left. The profile is singularly unimaginative. Sweet malt.

Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Poured a clear amber brown, almost no head. Aroma of toffee and caramel, hint of dark fruit. Flavor matches. Faintly "Belgian" somehow, probably the yeast poking through a bit. Lingering sweetness. Just didn’t do much for me, but not awful at least.

60minuteman (788) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Funky, funky, funky. Malt and caramel. Sugar. This beer is off in many ways. Not a good balance or structure

scooterbub (841) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 22, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice copper with a half inch beige head that slowly fades. Taste is of malt, brown sugar, wheat, caramel and toffee. Similar aroma. Has a nice full body with a slight dry finish. A nice seasonal that is easy drink, enjoyable and satisfying

poisoneddwarf (1726) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - DEC 22, 2013
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 (7729) - 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.

MercyDevice (348) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Light chestnut brown with a full beige head. Sweet-tasting, with toffee, caramel, and fruit notes. Not bad.

Pershing (477) - 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 (3727) - 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.
