Very classic bottle. Pours reddish brown with a half inch tan head. Malty, bready taste with a fizzy mouthfeel. A little sweetness in it as well. Enjoyable, but a little pricey.

pours a nice brown tan head rich sweet malt character prune dates and other dried fruit flavors aswell as chocolate nice palate good aroma. I lean more toward the hophead pale ales but do enjoy the change of pace a nice belgian dubble or abbey provides and this one does the trick great flavors and aromas warms the soul good stuff. Doesn’t hurt that it supports a cause.

뛰어난 맥주.북미 채제동안 마신 맥주탑텐에 무난히 꼽을수 있는, 남들에게 꼭 추천하고 싶은 맥주. 병을따자자짙 풍기는 레드와인향. 9.4도의 맥주지만 벨지움 스타일로 이스트와 당으로 장난 쳐 입안에 넣는 순간 무수한 맛과 향이 복잡하게 피어오르고 지며, 무언가 메모하려는 순간에 머릿속이 멍해져 취기가 오르며나뭇껍 흙내, 다양한 약재의 향과 맛이 입과 코에 멤돌다 진다. 전형적인 수사들의 맥주만들기 수법. 재미없는 맥주들 많이 마시면서 점점더 벨기에에 이삼개월 체류해 보고싶다는 생각이 강해졌다.
하지 벨기에 맥주와는 확실히 다른 가벼움과 천진함이 있다. 그런 건전한 미국 크래프트 맥주 정서가 장난으로만은 끝나지 않은, 좋은 결과물로 뽑아나온 뛰어난 맥주중의 하나다.샐러니& 몽크 헌정맥주이며 교육에 수익의 일부가 기부되는 듯 하다.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber in color with a good sized light brown head with very good lacing. The aroma is dominated by dark fruits with a hint of molasses and a strong hops backbone. The flavor is of dark fruits with a little raisin, molasses, oak, and a hint of apples. The texture is creamy. Overall its a very good abbey ale with a very complex and relaxed flavor; very enjoyable

Large corked bottle served slightly chilled. Shared with my good friend Kyle and many other friends on the night of his wedding. This is a dark red amber colour in the glass with a half inch off-white head. The aroma is nice and complex: raisin, vanilla, sugar, other dark fruits, yeast. Medium mouthfeel. I taste more dark fruits, plum perhaps, dark sugar, raisin, some more distant green hops.

Looking at these other rankings, I must have had a bad bottle..... Pours light brown with thick foamy whitish/yellow head. Initial taste is sweet followed by a strong lingering bitterness.

Pours Clear, dark amber with a good long-lasting tan head. Malty aromas with some banana and bubblegum. Slight touch of alcohol on the nose and flavor. Nice hop finish but light for a Dubbel. Not a bad beer but it could use a little more Umph to it.
