Certainly not a classic Abbey Ale, not that I’m an expert on such things. The hops are very prevalent in the mouth - there’s loads of grapefruit, plus peach, plum, honey and raisin. There is a lot of biscuit in the aroma to match those other flavours. A very refreshing, easy drinking 7.8% beer. As I say, not what I was expecting but quite enjoyable.

Bottle into a tulip. Pours hazy orange brown, with a big khaki head. Nose is caramel and dark fruit, and the taste follows. Quite sweet, with a short finish. Some booziness on the finish. Pretty good. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle. A lot of raisin and plum in aroma. Same in flavor, with some strong caramel throughout. A bit dry in the finish. snuffla (176) - Chch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 15, 2016
Nota bene time. Beccy says it’s vile. I like it. It’s like the larvae of a vile beetle gently cooked in the most exquisite broth and then filtered thru a horse hair blanket. It’s like a girl that you don’t fancy but have a weirdly intense sexual attraction to. It’s also fucking strong so I may be talking pish Niko100 (2913) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2015

Poured from a 33 CL bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Smelled stale with malt and alcohol
Appearance- This is a dark brown beer with no head.
Taste- Not impressed, I don’t care for the flavor mix of malt and raisins(?)
Palate- A medium to full bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a syrupy texture.
Overall- I did not like this, I struggled to finish it tykechandler (343) - Kentucky, USA - FEB 1, 2015

Bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours murky amber with a thick beige head and a fruit and toffee aroma. There is a hearty roasted malt flavor with a fruity character and a bitter finish. Not a typical abbey ale, but still fairly tasty. NBird (626) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2014

Aroma - the aroma is full with caramel, as well as alcohol, and an acetone like aroma.
Appearance - is a clean toffee colored brown with a nice white rocky head, that dissipates to a white halo.
Taste - of sweet caramel, figs, and alcohol
Feel - the body is somewhere between light and medium, the texture slightly oily, the carbonation is lively. The finish slightly astringent.
This beer takes on some qualities of IPA’s I’ve had before. In particular that acetone aroma that sometimes shows up in very hoppy brews, is present here. There is also an oily character in the taste and feel, that also shows up at times in very hop stuffed IPA’s. Further, I get through it the less enjoyable it gets.
