1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
No aroma. Thin, whispy head, little to no flavor. Another. Overrated beer. The color may be the saving grace.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was good but one dimensional. The deScription really says it all, strong caramel aroma and toffee finish. I detected a bit of chocolate malt but definitely not a bad winter ale from blue moon.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Actually a beautiful beer...pours reddish copper - nice fluffy tan head. First taste was very roasted-like...but the roastiness faded into more of a blackberry taste finishing with red wine vinegar. Not a lot of body...but still mildly satisfying.

Nice color, malty and sweet. Aftertaste lingers unwelcomely. Sort of disappointed that there are two more in the pack.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hazy deep copper color with a thin tan head. Almost untraceable grain aroma. Roasty and toasty grains with a sugary taste and a metalic hop finish. Sweet sticky, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, cloyingly sweet. Some sort of spice that stings the toungue. The fact that they added sugar and say so in the label is a bad sign to me. They’re not lying, you can taste the sugar... OR you could just make a better beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has a reddish amber colour. The aroma is mostly sweet and caramel malty. It’s pretty disappointing, even though I only bought a single bottle.

This tastes kind of like saltine crackers. It’s fine, but I’m not buyin’ the winter or the abbey.

Bottle. Sweet caramel aroma, above average carbonation. Sweet caramel mouthfeel, sweet finish. Delightful!

This is an ok beer. I was hoping for something better and would have been happier with a standard Blue Moon. Seems like they just took a Blue Moon and made it more bitter.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of toffee, yeast, toasted malt, taste of coffee, bitter nuts. A small sense of alcohol. Medium carbonation, red brownish body, nice but not long lasting foam.
