COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flemish monks brewed the first Abt. A voluptuous temptress they named for their Monastery Abbot. Belgian Dark Candi Sugar encourages the decadence of rum, raisin dark chocolate and sherry like fruit tones to conspire happily in almost 20˚ Plato. Rich and full bodied this is one to lie down or if you are bold enjoy now, but take your time - linger. This beer cries to be sipped and enjoyed.

Aroma is old cardboard and caramel malt. Taste is pretty much the same with some malty doppelbock notes in there. Low to medium sharp carbonation.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
[Bottle] Deep reddish brown color with little head. Nose is spicy and yeasty. Dark fruit, raisin, brown sugar and clove all make an appearance. Toffee, darker fruits, rum, clove, sweet breads and hints of alcohol in the state. Decent palate. Taste is a little muddled at times, but it’s still a good beer. Tasting notes from 2012.

Staffan47 (880) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2014
Mörkbrun och klar. Inget skum. Doft av godis, kola. ganska komplex doftbild som för tillfället känns ogreppbar. Mer åt barleywine-typ. Ganska hög kolsyra. Åldrats med värdighet. Kola dominerar smakbilden.

valpoaj (635) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours a deep, translucent garnet with a film of a tan head. Aroma is surprisingly faint - candied sugar, caramel, vanilla, but this didn’t open up much, even upon warming. Flavor is pretty good, sugary malts, raisin, plum, caramel, hint of booze. Palate is smooth and easy drinking. Given my high standards for NG, this one fell a bit short, though it was still a good drink that I look forward to having again.

Lukaduke (2317) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle thanks to adnielsen ! Pours a deep mahogany color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is filled with belgian candi sugar, flat cola and a trace of herbal earthiness. The palate follows with lots of dark earthy character that balances nicely of the background gingerbread, burnt sugar and cola. Traces of anise, wet wood, vanilla and charcoal linger. Complex and tasty !

Few year old bottle, pours very dark brown with ruby hue. Nose candy sugar, molasses, raisin, slight booze. Taste sweet up front, Belgian candy sugar, some raisin and faint spice. Decent mouthfeel for old bottle.

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottled August 2010 A: pours a really neat cola ale with a single finger of light tan head which falls quickly to a centrally capped sheet of the same. Little/no lacing. Gotsta give some recognition here, man it’s brilliant, never seen a quad with this much clarity. S: Malts are typical of a quad, sweet, nougat, some dark stone fruits, maybe a specific hint of prune. Yeast is there, subdued for the style, which is nice IMO. T: Sweet and sweet. I really have a hard time here. Just seems like sweet, malty, belgian candy sugar. Some hints of earthy yeast. M: Thin with moderate carb. Semi-dry finish. Expect a little more body here. O: This beer looks great, unfortunately, it doesn’t stand out in the nose. The flavors are one-dimensional. The mouthfeel is unimpressive. Serving type: bottle 07-12-2011

tectactoe (2201) - Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Dark brown, deep shades of ruby with a muddled, soft gray tinted head. Aroma is sweet dates and prune juice, light phenols, some vinous grape sweetness, and a bit of molasses in the back. Taste is softer than most quads; touch of phenol, bit of prunes and a slight hint of black licorice. Some sweet molasses and a little bit of alcoholic grape in the finish. Decent quad, but this isn’t Dan’s best work.
