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.

bhensonb (11661) - 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. Itís really too sugary (I canít use malty). Meh.

Tmoney99 (11219) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle. Poured clear light brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted caramel aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium dark sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Smooth drinkable beer.

shrubber85 (8068) - 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.

DruncanVeasey (7318) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle, room 212, 19/02/14. White lidded mahogany. Malt loaf with strawberry jam nose. Malt loaf studded with black cherry; light nuttiness and rusk in the afters. Sweet and inoffensive in a dobbelbock diluted with cheap tinned brown bitter kind of way.

BVery (7103) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle. Holy crap, could the brewer give less of a rats ass about making this an abbey-style ale? Mild raisin and nut in this, and it isnít offensive, but itís completely half-assed. Whatever.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle: † Amber, a little dark, thin frothy tannish head, little lacing. † Somewhat of a dark bready nose, slightly musty. † Perhaps a touch of dark pitted fruit. † Same on the tongue, malty, bready in a darker sense, with a very soft dark pited fruit like background. † Pretty light, and not as barnish or musty as most other Belgians, nor as bright. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Had I had this blind, I would have never said Belgian. † I would have said a Pale Bock or something....

slowrunner77 (6160) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 4, 2014
"Pales in comparison to every trappist beer, most Belgians, and the majority of American Dubbels. That said, better than average for a Blue Moon offering. Nothing wrong except the overall impression of generic(ness)? Light yeast and malt and candi sugar. Not much else."
