This isnít too bad actually....Bottle at the condo. nice dark mahogany in color, aroma is some light spice and sweet malt. Taste is more spice and some additional malt sweetness. Body is a bit thin. More richer flavor would have given this a higher rating. Nothing too fancy here but overall very passable.

12 oz bottle courtesy of my in-laws. The pour is clear brown ruby with a minimal light tan head. The aroma is raisin sweet malt, along with a dusty dry note - not really earthy, not really cardboard, sort of a synthetic dusty dry. The taste is somewhat mild raisin fruit sweet malt, along with vanilla and caramel notes, and a lightly bitter finish. More sweet arrives in the aftertaste, along with the synthetic dryness of the nose. The palate is medium bodied, higher level of carbonation and the sweet dry finish.

12oz bottle, thanks to Greg. Best by 5/27/13. Clear brown / red color. Bit of bubbly off-white head, fades to nearly nothing. Lighter carbonation, light body. Kind of watery, not really a fan of the texture. Sweet taste, kind of a sweet nutty flavor. Some caramel, macro feel to the texture, light spice, maybe some honey. Doesnít really taste "abbey" at all. Artificial flavors added to attempt a "Belgian" profile just taste artificial. I managed to finish the whole bottle, but I didnít really enjoy it.

No aroma. Thin, whispy head, little to no flavor. Another. Overrated beer. The color may be the saving grace.

12 oz bottle pours deep amber with a white head. Aroma of wheat and caramel. Taste is toasted caramel, a hint of spice and vanilla. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A decent heavier winter ale, strong flavor that isnít the greatest...little too much spice IMO

Grain, toasted malt, and yeast notes comprise the aroma. A dark amber pour with a mostly diminishing tan head and no lacing. The taste is mainly sweet. Toasted malts, candied sugar, with a grainy finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Oveall, I was surprised that it actually had some enjoyable taste.

Not too bad for the less adventurous. Dark amber with a small head. The aroma was Malthus sweet as was the taste. A bit thin but overall, decent. I wanted to hats it but it was not that bad.
