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.

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.

Bottle out of winter sampler 12 pack. Pours a dark brown and light tan head wit roasted malt aroma and brown sugar. Medium mouthfeel with a light malt flavor and a bit watery. Easy to drink, a decent belgian.

PorterPounder (6529) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Super Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark amber pour, tight, off white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Sweet, sugary aroma with hints of Christmas spices. Flavor has some toffee notes, some candied sugar, a back end of caramel and just a hint of Christmas spices. Mouthfeel is a bit lacking, thickness does not match the flavor. Overall, decent though.

TheAlum (6487) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2012
12 oz bottle left on my balcony for almost a month from a mix pack a friend brought over. Pours a rich copperruby pour, darker and reddish, a minimal haze is darker, a touch of glow on the edges grows as it warms, and frothy offwhite head dies to a small film, laces small. Aromas are sweeter malts, caramel and bread dough. Touches of biscuits, toast, and mellow yeastiness. A touch of apple, pear, and candied fruits. Oranges, cherry, more sweet malts, gentle spiciness and Candi sugars. Toastiness, bread dough, flaked wheat. Not all that bad. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, offering some mellow sweetness, bread dough, flaked wheat, toast and biscuits up front. A touch of deeper Candi sugar, light fruitiness, some oranges, touch of estery pear in there. Light spice, yeast, mellow cinnamon and ginger is fleeting. Touches of dryness into the finish, dry spice and yeast, that Candi sugar lingers a touch more as it warms. An ok beer, really. Lacking complexity or assertive flavors, it could be considered a bit bland. But it’s not bad.

onceblind (6111) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Appearance is beautiful for the most part. Clear amber-ish ruby, yet with a rocky and not persistent head. Flat-ish carbonation, surprising from a macrobrew. Aroma was upsetting, mostly funky malt with some bread dough. Taste was just as upsetting. Light caramel, grains, and some nutmeg appear on the palate, with little to no hop profile to speak of. Very light bodied, which is a downer but not unexpected. Just another lazily crafted beer from the MillerCoors folk.

Bottle. Setting aside its claim on the bottle, and that it doesn’t really hold a candle to any other abbey ale on the planet, this one wasn’t actually that bad. It is more like a brown ale than anything else. Mild spice character. Entirely drinkable, and probably something you could convince absolute non-beer drinkers to partake in. Poured a medium dark amber color, medium fluffy head. Aroma was sweet toffee notes, caramel.
