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.

Bottle. Apple, orange, and chocolate malt aroma. Medium brown with small head. Sweet caramel malt and light alcohol aroma. Lighter body. Not bad but not very complex.

Deep brown beer, semi transparent. Tiny white head. Crispy palate. Sweet malt turning creamy. A little herb and coca cola in the undertone. Finishes smooth with a little vanilla ice cream! An odd concoction of a beer. Not horrible at all but a clunky mixture of disparate flavours.

[4740-20120818] 12floz bottle. Toasted cherry pits and burnt fruit skin aroma. Clear, dark brown amber body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Boozy toasted caramelized bread grain flavour. Full body. Boozy and huge, not for me. (7/4/6/3/12) 3.2

Bottle from a trade with BlackIPA. Pours clear dark reddish brown color with tan head. Aromas of dark fruits and some alcohol. Raisin and plum flavors with some candi sugar and a little alcohol. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Shawn.

mcberko (6260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2012
12 oz. bottle, pours an opaque dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of dark red fruits, brown sugar, and syrupy caramel malt. Flavour is quite strong, with loads of caramel malt, brown sugar, maple syrup and a Belgian yeasty twang. Kind of light bodied for the style, with a brown sugar and Belgian yeast finish. Decent stuff, but nowhere close to the best quads.

oakbluff (413) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 14, 2012
Pours chestnut cola, good clarity. No head and only slight lacing. nose- raisins and burnt brown sugar. taste- plums and an odd welch red grape juice followed by drying sugary finish. Carbonation is good, quite light bodied for such a sweet brew. Pretty average

Atom (1331) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2012
12oz bottle pours a cola brown with orange highlights and a large khaki head. Aroma of raisins, cherries, caramel, candi sugars, cider like, and sweet rum. Tastes of warming rum raisin, slight chocolate, and Belgian Candi sugar. Nice although really not my thing.
