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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

firemarshal (157) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Sample at 201 Central - Wesley Chapel, NC. Effervescent; amber color.. Sweet aroma, but not sickeningly sweet. Flavor - Caramel, honey, and flax seed nuances. Very drinkable and good macro.

Rperez (134) - Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Great amber golden color that doesn't quite match the flavor, sugary sweet and refreshing but forgettable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hiero (127) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Not what I expected. This is like cheap beer with a dash of food coloring added. Hard to get any flavor or aroma out of this one. Slightly sweet , with some carbonation.

alexanderj (3317) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle; poured a slightly orange tinted brown with a khaki colored head. Aroma of yeast, a touch of sugar; rather dry smelling. Flavor had a bit more of a sweetness due to a bit more of a sugar presence. A touch of wheat and maybe some caramel. Pretty boring, but not bad.
