3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a big sweet caramel and toffee presence, nice ripe fruits, the flavor has some yeast, biscuity notes, dry almost earthy notes, but fades a bit at the finish. I’ve had this many times, but not rated.

Bottle at the Riverside Market in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Shared with Dan! Tulip. Pours a nice dark brown with a little oily look to it. Thick two finger head that lasted awhile. Good lacing throughout. Aroma of dark fruits, toffee, heavy malts, Belgian yeasts, and candied brown sugars. Taste was similar with the malt presence very heavy and the Belgian yeasts less than I like in an Abbey. Moderate carbonation, medium body. Finish is malty with a hint of sourness. Overall pretty good abbey.

On tap at The Bulldog, New Orleans. Color is a beautiful reddish copper. Aroma is sweet, maybe some fig and bananas. Taste is a tad sweet for my tastes, but still enjoyable. Viscous mouth feel. Overall, a pretty good beer.
