1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted on tap at Old Chicago’s in Aurora, Colorado. Cherry wood appearance. Aroma smells like a typical sweet Belgian ale with candy sugar. Nutty brown flavor is more dominant than the Belgian ale taste. Body is pretty thin and actually tastes pretty flat. Below average beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer has a dark amber color with a reddish tint, and a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of caramel, malt and fruit. Light body with a caramel malt character and notes of wheat, yeast and a hint of spice. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Average overall.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured light-medium reddish-brown with a short, tight-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up toasted caramel, molasses, and candi sugar with accents of fruity yeast and dank wheat. The flavor found tart fruity notes on the tip of the tongue, with sweet caramel, candi sugar, and wheat following.. spicy, tangy finish with too much tacky residual sweetness. Lighter-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. smooth middle, but tangy and rough at odd times.. drinkable, but not very good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours amber with tan head. The aroma is sweet with caramel, apple and chocolate chip cookie. Pretty nice. The taste is smooth with apples, caramel and muted cherry to midway. It seems to stay that way leanining toward smooth blended dark fruitiness into the finish.

Bouteille partagée avec Jcwattsrugger.
Couleur ambre, mousse beige.
Note malt caramel, avec intonations de levure belge, profile reste plus malt que anticipe pour un style abbaye, peut être l’aspect hiver? Note de caramel, levure, sucre brun et qcq fruits avec une fine couche d’amertume.
Pas mauvaise, mais un peu bordélique comme bière surtout dans le style.
