Very rich, with flavors of dates, figs, raisins, cherries. It is true to the style, and possibly even stronger and more complex than many Belgian Dubbels. I could have done with a little less of the brown sugar/molasses flavor, but overall a very good offering.

Bottle. Pour is similar to dark apple cider. Translucent deep amber with really no head at all. Aroma similar to most Abbey’s, lots of malt, sour fruit, hint of scotch. Taste is mild at first with sour fruit and light malt followed by a nice, light booze and carmel finish. Mouthfeel is a little light, the only thing that is lacking. All around a nice abbey for a Chicago brewery

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.

This is very fruity beer that is dark in appearance but has mild flavor and a sweet after taste.

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.
