3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Brownish copper. Very nice example of the style. Perhaps a bit on the plain side, but very nice anyway.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper hued with a nice lasting head. On draught. Sticky-sweetness of caramel. An appealing amber that I wouldn’t say no to.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A searing pint with mellow, sweet caramel spirit, unfazed by its evil-jewel ruby appearence and generally awash in a fizzling head lasting far longer than my ability to pause between sips.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This bottled brew poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized long lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent brown colored softly carbonated body and a fair lacing. The aroma was very mildly malty. The mouth feel was smooth and mildly vinous. The flavor was very tasty with a nice smooth brown ale base.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle, no date. Pours a hazy copper brown with a large beige head. Musty aroma along with some yeast, graham crackers, raisins, a little bit of toffee and nuts. Flavors are much the same, though some bitterness is present halfway through til the end. Has a stout/porter chalky finish to it. As this warms up, yeasty sourness is more apparentAlcohol is noticeable, though not too warm. Medium bodied. Not too bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 oz bottle. Clear burgundy with a dirty tan bubbly head; fades. Plum sauce, concord grapes and treacle. Sweet raisin goes slightly bitter and sour to hold off cloying. Body a little thin with light carb. Simple, good.

Fine dark brown clour, smalls like an old ale. Rich flavour, sweet & sour in the way the Belgians do so well. A very respectable abbey ale!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
- Dated 2004
I must have had this beer in my cellar for 2 years… and just finally got around to drinking it.
Pours a rusty brown body and a tall rocky slightly off white head. The aroma and flavor offer especially earthy suggestions of toffee, honey-nut wheat bread, and a dusty sort of yeasty-ness. There was some mildly fruity mention of dates and plums, accompanied by a nutty finish. The palate had a pleasant effervescence, spritzy, with a mildly sweet biscuity finish. A rather good brew, but nothing too exciting overall.
