3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle 11/13/06. Pours a dark cloudy orange color with a sweet malty, fruity nose. Thin tan head that quickly diminishes. Spicy flavors, reminds me of a more fruit and flavor filled spice beer like that of anchor christmas. Hints of citrus, possibly lemon with a hint of alcohol to finish off the taste. Quite frankly a very weak unimpressive palate to end a real solid beer. Flavors are pretty weak when you let it sit in your mouth and after taste is not there. Other than the ending a pretty impressive brew in my opinion.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
tastes rich with a roasted chocolaty malt, a little hoppy for added sexiness, a bit spiced, just some how not put together well

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours murky amber/brown with a small tan head. Aroma has notes of dark fruit, yeast, mild hops, spice, and sweet malts. Flavor is very similar to the aroma, but with a little more bitterness than expected. Palate is medium, a bit oily, slightly bitter, and some mild spice. Not the best Abbey I’ve had, and a little unbalanced, but still fairly pleasant.
