ben4321 (3759) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014
Location: Draft at Mekong, 5/2/14, Wouldn’t have guessed this wasn’t rated yet

Aroma: The nose is malty and rich, lots of dark fruit (plum, raisin), brown sugar, and spice
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a reddish hue, and a light brown head
Flavor: The flavor is malty and sweet, fairly complex, lots of dark fruit, and some spice as well
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it has a pretty good mouthfeel, and a bit of heat
Overall Impression: This is beer I hadn’t had for quite sometime, but it also a beer I knew would work in the exact situation that existed at the time, so I picked it out, and as I knew I would be, I was quite satisfied. No complaints here. This beer does what it does, and it does it rather well.

Shain (31) - ISRAEL - MAY 6, 2014
Pours dark cloudy brown. Aroma of sweet malt and some yeast. Taste is clean and crisp, with sufficient medium carbonation. Taste leans to the sweat side (a bit too much) but is balanced well by some mellow bitterness, which is slightly hoppy, and by the carbonation that lends a slight sour tang. Flavor profile is strong malt and caramel, some yeast and liquorice notes, with some fruitiness and spice hints, perhaps some gentle herbal notes. Some taste of the alcohol combines to a wine like flavor. Goes down nice and crisp with well balanced sweetness and bitterness. Very good abbey ale, but a tad to sweet. Will make a great desert beer.

Handypaul (185) - - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy brown with an overflowing frothy beige head that leaves good lace. Flavors of sour fruit, yeast, a bit of alcohol and hay. Complex and moderately balanced. Need to let the rest of the bottles sit for a while before opening. Body is light to medium, fizzy carbonation, light sourness and a bitter sweet finish.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014 Copper hue and a large creamy khaki-colored long lasting head. Nose is complex (malty, hoppy and yeasty). Full bodied with high carbonation and velvet texture. Taste is sweet and bitter. Palate is dominated by toffee, chocolate, herbs, flowers, hops, soap, earth, raisins, port, rum and much more. Bitter aftertaste. B@H

flaska hemma. lätt skum, vit färg, stora bubblor som snabbt försvann. Jästgrumlig brun färg. Doft med tydlig maltsötma, karamell, jäst, örter, diskret lakrits, lite bröd. Kraftig karamellsmak, lite lakrits, örter, plommon, russin. Torr sötma i eftersmaken. Lätt beska i smaken som sen nästan är obefintlig i eftersmaken. Kraftig kropp som bryts av till en fräsh len vaniljton i eftersmaken.

spatenfan (16) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2014
On tap at World of Beer. The Villages, FL. Not as good as I was expecting. Maybe I had my expectations set to high. Poured with a two finger head which dissipated quickly. Tasted like a standard Belgium Dubbel. Raisins, figs, dark fruit. Well balanced and tasty brew.

Sjohnh (104) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
Very attractive chestnut brown colour, butter coloured head. Medium bodied, fresh and invigorating in the mouth. Malty, subtle banana and spices. Like a quad’s baby brother, very enjoyable in its own right.
