A shameless maltfest with unusual sweetness and somewhat flat. A nice change of pace, but not my favorite.

This is a memorable beer for me. Not because I enjoyed it. Far from it. Rather, this was the beer that I drank before feeling the effects of a nasty bout of (presumably) Arby’s-induced food poisoning. I don’t blame this beer for making me vomit. However, I found myself thinking while I retched. I was grateful that at least I wasn’t wasting a good beer. No, this beer isn’t offensive, but it has thin flavor and a flat body. It sure as hell isn’t an "Abbey Ale."

Bottle. Pours a clear amber brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a bread note with underlying sugar and a hint of darker grains. Flavor starts with the same bread note that lasts throughout and is complimented by a bit of sweetness from toffee.

Pours a dark brownish-amber. Has a light chocolate and malt aroma. Mine was served with a chocolate powdered rim. Taste is strong with chocolate and a nice mix of light malt and some spices. Has a sweet and smooth taste.
