12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear dark amber color with a thin head that fades quickly. Aroma of toffee and grainy notes. The taste is toffee, sugary notes and some faint spice. Not too bad.

Pours a red-copper, with a small off-white head. Mild malty aroma with some earthy notes. Flavor is much of the same, with some dark fruit and caramel. The finish is sweet with some lingering note.

The hints of toffee and sugar finish out this beer nicely. Not too heavy of a roasted flavor. Tasted great with Brie.

while there is nothing fundamental wrong with this beer, it lacks anything that would make a abbey special to drink in the fall/winter season. got a nice malt with a touch of sweetness. medium malts with very little hop flavor. decent, not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] Pours a deep amber color with a small, fleeting head. Aroma of caramel malts, some nut and earth. The taste is of caramel, light brown sugar and some earthy/yeasty notes. Sweet finish, but watered down taste throughout. Faintly reminded me of Fat Tire, with a little spice thrown in for good measure.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy brown with beige head. Aroma of light fruit, malt, a bit of spice. Flavor is very much the same with a pleasant maltiness. Mouth feel is light-medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, not all that bad.

Brownish pour from bottle with a thin head. Aroma and taste are brown sugar, malts, caramel and baking spices. Nice earthy finish. One of Blue Moon’s better offerings. I’d drink this one again.
