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.

tectactoe (3116) - 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.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle from a trade as extra. Aroma is apple, grape must, and Belgian yeast. Flavor is missing that deep date flavor that exists in the best Belgians. Palate is great, carb. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark Brown pour, with some toffee and figs with a little earth and fruitiness. Pretty good for this bottle’s age.

pours an opaque dark brown with ruby hues and a medium tan head. aroma has dark fruit...fig and plum...with some toffee and very faint wine. flavor is slightly less fruity and has laters of leather and earthy bitterness...hint of chocolate mouthfeel is medium/full and silky with a nice earthy/fruity/leathery finish that hints at chocolate and coffee.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle. Poured dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma and flavor were molasses, cherry and other dark fruit, moderatly sweet, lightly sour, some dark chocolate. Full mouthfeel. Quite good but not as well integrated as Belgian abts.

JStax (3771) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Pours a dark brown. No head. Tastes sugary sweet. Aroma has plenty of sugars coming through. Really not my thing, I guess.

TheHOFF43 (1779) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a nearly transparent dark brown with tons of dark fruits on the nose. Some candied sugar, malt and a little alcohol rounds out this beer.

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle courtesy of dschiller. Pours dark caramel brown with a lively off white head that disappears in seconds. Aromas are sherry, raisin, cherry, sugar and a very faint cola scent. Flavors are immaculate, big Candi Sugar, then some liquor soaked raisin, sherry fruits, some chocolate, blueberry, plum, perhaps even some peach/apricot tang and again some cola like notes. The palate is perfect, not too heavy or too carbonated; this sits beautifully on the tongue. Overall, the best example of the Abt style from an American brewery I have had to date, absolutely stupendous.
