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.

StFun supplied as an extra. Many thanks! To stemmed wine glass it pours a purplish chestnut brown with a trim, soapy off-white head. Picking up a lot of bubblegum on the nose; wet grass, tobacco, corn, table sugar, and rosemary. Tastes as it smell: bubblegum, table sugar, corn, and rosemary, with some nuttiness, yeast and a refined sugary sweetness by swallow. Drinkable, but just way too damn sweet.

MaltOne (202) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours deep garnet brown. Brief tan head. Aroma of caramelized banana and raisons, hints of chocolate. On the tongue, add a hint of ginger spice to the mix. Silky on the palate, well balanced, a hint of fizz as you swallow. Medium body, with a medium finish. Finesse - doesn’t show-off, doesn’t dominate - like a fine Bordeaux compared to a fine California Cab. Props to New Glarus.

Great beer. Needed a lot of age most of the sweetness is gone. This bottle was from 2009. Aroma has a vanilla coke smell.(vanilla and caramel sweetness) taste has a rich caramel and toffee taste and with a strong rummy taste. This rich full mouth feel.

Beerman6686 (4222) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2013
This poured a murky deep dark red to brown color with a small off white head. Aroma was of dark dried fruit, grapes, light dark chocolate and yeast. Flavor was on the sweeter side, again dried figs, some grape character, some light burnt sugar and chocolate, and a bit estery. Nice.

burg326 (3576) - Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2013
12 ounce bottle pours a brownish red color aromas of light cocoa, caramel and some feint fruit. Flavors follow suit, mostly caramel with a mellow aftertaste of cocoa. Not as boozey as abv sugfests, nice beer overall.

The unplugged series is one Wisconsin people love! Abt is a very dark brown beer with a strong taste. But while it does have a quite bitter taste it does drink rather smooth. Certainly worth a try seeing as they only make it once!
