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.

BVery (6939) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle. Mostly clear amber pour with a large initial head that fades to a slightly cream colored ring. Aroma is caramel malt and sugar. Medium palate. Taste is quite sweet - notes of dark fruit/plum, some candied sugar, and caramel malt. Really not too bad, especially coming from Coors. Pleasantly surprised.

DrSilverworm (6933) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2013
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. Doesn’t 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 didn’t really enjoy it.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2010
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.

Ernest (6342) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain, popcorn), lightly hoppy (apricot), with light notes of vanilla and brown sugar. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Very simple and not a lot to balance the sweetness, but inoffensive. Pretty much the same as the old Full Moon, just a bit darker and less metallic. Still popcorn-husky though.

12 ounce beer from Dans. Pours a clear dark amber color with a small white head. A sweet light spicy nose. The flavor is a smooth light fruitiness, some sweet malt and caramel. Watery, decent. Wait, 5.6%? We can only see 4% and below in grocery stores. Hmmmm.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2011 11/21/11. 12oz bottle from the winter 12pk... how is this different than the Full Moon they used to make? Hope I didn’t just ruin a bunch of ticks for people. Clear amber/red pour with a small khaki head that fades fast, sticks a little, and barely laces. Light aroma of caramel, metal, and a touch of spice. Sweet caramel flavor with a surprising amount of chocolate and roast in there, along with another metallic kick. Lingering sweet caramel and metal as well. Bleh.
