COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This copper-colored ale is crafted with roasted malts, Belgian sugar, and a touch of wheat for a rich caramel flavor and a smooth toffee finish.

Draft. Crappy. This tarnishes the word "abbey." Drinking this ale as an "abbey" ale was like running to McDonald’s for a "gourmet" burger. It’s just not going to happen. The aroma was faint, and I almost caught a bit of molasses. The appearance was an average brown, little head, no lacing. The palate was a diminished medium, and the taste was a muted version of a Belgian. Almost dampened with a dull, flat finished. Blech.

An odd mystery brew. Spicey with prominent chocolate presence, some Belgian yeast and caramel. Don't really know what to say.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Sweet smell and taste but rather nondescript. Pours clean, amber color with light head. Not too bad, tasty but could be better.

At least I drank this one. Not much going on, but the hint of wheat takes the edge off this attempt at a dark beer. More toffee than dark fruit.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2010
From bottle. Mild sweet caramel aroma, straining to be a dubbel. Light diacetyl. No hop aroma. Dark brown amber clear with thin head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with light malt, a bit of caramel, and buttery character. Dry bitter hops at the finish but mild. Sweet nutty after. Not very impressive.

Fratto (2803) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle from pikapp327. Brown pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is weak, grainy, a little dark fruity, and uneventful. Taste is mostly the same. No aftertaste. Watery.

Onslow (1240) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Dark amber clear brew with a short lived off white head. Aroma of light grains, teaberry. Sweet flavor, light grains, not much in the finish. Thin palate.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle. Poured a murky amber color with a smaller white head, the head did retain throughout the entire beer. Aroma was biscuit, caramel, and some fruit. Flavor was malts, some tart in the finish. Not a whole lot to this beer. Very weak and watery, thin body.

OK, blue moon, I saw you standing alone? Well not any more, blue moon makes alot varied brews like this one; a beldgy. Does have that old style yeast feel to it. Quite strong initial impressions yet well controlled. Not sure if its the beldgy sugar er the yeast that gives it that personality. Couldn’t drink abunch of theser but it goes down fairly easy for a five plusser. Decent lacing. Stands right up there with some of those other beldgy wanna bee american imitations. Aroma is clean and rather sterile, but something is there. Finish is a little creamy and medium bitter. One of the stronger moons I’ve had; they must be trying to approach the big beer category, heheh. To put this in the same style category as orval is hilarious.
