DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Draft at wedge. Pours dark brown with a thin khaki head. Not much on the nose and I’m not getting much of the Belgian yeasty thing on the tongue. It is quaffable despite the slight alcohol burn.

coolpop (1367) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 1, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Poured a deep coppery golden with a medium-sized off-white head that left some good lacing. Aroma and flavor were cherry, fig, prune, some spicy hops, fairly sweet, a little bit of barnyard, not overly Belgian. Slightly oily, thick mouthfeel.

nickd717 (3403) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 20, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Nice dark fruit aroma with mild Belgian yeast and spices. Great dark fruit based flavor with plum and fig along with caramel and hazelnut. Medium sweetness. Medium-plus body with average carbonation. Pretty nice for what it is.

agl108 (722) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2012
On draft at The Wedge brewery, Asheville. Served incorrectly in a standard pint glass. Poured deep brown with light khaki head. Started sweet with some subtle notes of figs, plums, raisins present. A bit thin. Decent.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy ruby-brown with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt and light roast. Flavor again of sweet malt and sweet fruits. Only a hint of spices. Pretty chill beer, on the sweet side though. 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2010
OK, I rarely say anything is too hoppy, but this wasn’t really like an abbey ale. Reddish copper, with a thin ring of foam Smell sweet and amlty, but the flavor is more like, I dunno, a standard brown ale with some Belgian yeast or something. Tasty, but kind of odd...

decaturstevo (4665) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Copper with tan head and lace. Light brown sugar and bread on the aroma. Bread brown sugar and Belgian yeast. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

bubbleflubber (1712) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2010
On draught from the brewery, it pours a deep hickory-walnut into the glass with an eggshell head that reduces to a thin ring leaving spotty webbed lacing. Some caramel, brown sugar and hints of farmyard aromas. The flavors are of caramel malt with some cherry aftereffects, lightly toasted brown sugar, and finishing with just a hint of phenols and pepper. A tad unilateral, the body still has some substance and is medium without being cloying. The palate is slightly oily with light notes of carbonation keeping the mouthfeel alive. A decent Abbey nonetheless.

1L bottle-pours a foamy tan head that laces and copper color. Aroma is sweet medium malt-roasty/toffee, secondary earthy hops. Taste is sweet medium/dark malt-cocoa powder/roasty/toffee, secondary earthy hops, yeast, raisin/prune.
