lesifflebiere (1026) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
Rouge avec des ombres noires, arômes de caramel et une petite touche de vin rouge. Épaisse. Au goût, belle rondeur, un peu de guimauves, étonnamment, et de fruits confits. Capiteuse, elle émet saveurs et arômes qui séduisent et parviennent à un bel équilibre entre elles. Une rareté qu’on aimerait voir plus souvent.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2013
On tap. Pours a dark black with a thick white head. Aroma of dark fruits, roasted malt. Flavor of dark fruits, sweet malt, light raisin, bready malt. Nice combination of dark fruits and sweet malt, though it’s not too sweet at all. Interesting abbot ale, doesn’t feel like it’s 10%. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

bob_w (291) - new york, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Abby beer (listed on their board at 8.5%, but in the Fest guide at 10%), which had a clear alcohol note right away giving way to more pleasant figgy/date aromas. It was a convincing rendition of the style with nice dark candy sugar flavors, dark fruit notes and the alcohol not overwhelming the flavor, but providing one of the many complexities of this mellowingly tangy, full bodied drink.

Eructoblaster (2852) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle - 750ml. Dark brown body with a thin beige foamy/bubbly head. Strong malty/hoppy aroma with vineous, fruity, brown sugar, and oaky hints. Alcohol is present but not too agressive. Its robust taste is well balanced. It carries candy, plummy, and oaky notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Decent Quadrupel.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
July 8, 2011 - with blankboy, JoeMcPhee, jerc and mabel. 750ml bottle c/o JoeMcPhee (2010 edition? - it’s 10%). Deep clear ruby-amber with a diminishing creamy/frothy beige head. A little up-front metal in the aroma, but it settles to fruity malt (apple and apricot), low-level spicy yeast, some alcohol presence; a very appealing aroma, but a touch mild. The taste follows, fruity sweet, with a bit of appleseed and dry herbal light bitterness mixed in - again, it’s a little light (7+). Soft, almost airy mouthfeel, average carbonation, finishes a little quickly; perhaps a little thin and simple, but tasty.
