ReV2 (129) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2014 Pours almost flat from a clear bottle, oily & vinous mouthfeel, not unpleasant. Taste is beery, yes, it’s beer so it should but nothing’s grabbing me here. Very drinkable for its strength with a warming alcohol feel, fruity and mellow, could do with more hops or something. I’m sure it was more flavoursome when it was first launched.

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. A clear, dark amber beer topped by a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma has loads of toffee, some cheesy hops and nuts. It’s semi-sweet on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Full to medium body. Toffee, nuts, caramel and bitterness in the flavor. Some grassy hints too. Blue plum hints, perhaps some prunes. Decent bitterness in the finish. A quite ordinary one, drinkable, but too much on the toffee side. 131231

StueyD (1069) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
A mid amber brown coloured beer with a weak off white head. A malty aroma, caramel and a tad smoky. Medium mouthfeel. A medium dry malt taste. Caramel and buttery flavour with a biscuity dry element. The finish carries on with the dryer flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamsen78 (2413) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear copper amber with airy but stable off-white head. Slightly dusty aroma of hops, oak barrel, spices, and malt. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with vinous and alcoholic notes of oak barrel, sweetish fruity hints, and touches of caramel malt. Bittersweet aftertaste. Well-balanced and nice to look at. Decent stuff, indeed.

Grzesiek79 (2969) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Bardzo smaczne rubinowo-miedziany kolor. Piana nie zawielka ale stoji jakis czas co cieszy w brytyjskich Ale. Zapach sliwkowy nieco spruchnialego i wilgotnego drewna. Smak tresciwy wytrawny z poczatkowa slodycza ktora potem przeksztalca sie w wytrawna gorych, lekko ociepla i rozgrzewa choc ma nie za wysaka moc. Klasa. Swietny Abbot Reserve. Dobre i solidne Ale z pelnia smaku i tresciwosci.
