LOOK: dark red/orange with yellowish tan head
NOSE: poppy seed bread, malt, fruity with banana, banana bread, peach, apple, grape jelly, salty dried beef, black pepper, smells like the deli section at Whole Foods
TASTE: definitely some breadiness, banana bread, lots of stuff like everything in the nose, and that's not bad!
OVERALL: very complex, great brew!

Dark brown pour with tan head. Very drinkable for the ABV. A little malty with a slight sour finish. Really enjoy this beer.

A good beer. Dark color. A good aroma and a.good taste. There is an after taste that I do not like

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle, dark toasty brown appearance, head didnt linger long but lacing was nice. For a american knock off of a belgian style the "spice is right".
Of course the belgians do it better but it was one of the better american attempts I have had. The flavor has a hint of molasses and a nice nut characteristic kinda almond like, also slight caramel presence. Very malty but pleasant. Mouthfeel is full and rich. Over all I have to say its a very good attempt at a belgian style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Poured very dark amber with a smallish light brown head and almost no lacing. Nose was mainly raisins and light spice, then a smokey-fruit and syrupy body with a caramel-alcohol finish. A fine beer but feels incomplete, as if not quite the sum of its parts.

Appears a little thin, but the nose and taste are spot on for a Belgian Abbey Ale. I was pleasantly surprised by this one and will definitely recommend this as an alternative to the Trappists if you want something different.

sweet, malty, with spicy overtones and very limited hops. Sweeter than typical belgians. Good, but not great.

Pours a riich mohogany color with a thin mocha head. Malty with lots of caramel and smooth finish. The philanthropy doesn’t hurt, either.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml Bottle, pours dark brown with thin beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, sugars. Flavor of dark fruits, caramel, chocolate, and sweetness throughout. Mouthfeel is great with medium body and moderate carbonation. Obviously not as complex as some other Belgian-style strong ales but I really enjoy what this one offers. $7 a bottle is great for me too.
