Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours clear copper with an off-white head that left quickly. Aroma is sort of light treacle. Med body more or less. Flavor is very sweet. Treacle moving to caramel moving to toffee. I used to think those were all about the same, but this brew illustrates my error. It’s really too sugary (I can’t use malty). Meh.

Bottle. Poured clear light brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted caramel aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium dark sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Smooth drinkable beer. crossovert (13908) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2015
355ml twist of fbottle. Amber bronw pour. Aroma is light gingerbread and fruits. Falvor is midl, light toastiness, caramel, a bi too sweet, not offensive at all but not good. slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 4, 2014
"Pales in comparison to every trappist beer, most Belgians, and the majority of American Dubbels. That said, better than average for a Blue Moon offering. Nothing wrong except the overall impression of generic(ness)? Light yeast and malt and candi sugar. Not much else." shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Nutty brown sugar malt and light spicy/herbal aroma. Chestnut brown with moderate head. Sweet caramel malt and mildly bitter herbal hops flavor. Not bad but no Belgian characteristics - more just a straight forward brown ale.

Bottle. Holy crap, could the brewer give less of a rats ass about making this an abbey-style ale? Mild raisin and nut in this, and it isn’t offensive, but it’s completely half-assed. Whatever. DocLock (11025) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle from variety pack. Amber pour with minimal off-white head. Caramel in the nose, some vcandi sugar. Thin palate, charred toffee. alexsdad06 (10803) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle given to me by a friend. Pours a clear reddish copper color with a medium sized off white head that disappeared quickly. The aroma and flavor have caramel malts, light toast, red fruit, grainy, some Belgian candi sugar, mild off notes, Meh. cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a reddish orange appearance with a light brown head. Caramel, banana, nutty aroma. Kind of chewy, toasted caramel malty, light candy sugar, slightly fruity, nutty flavor. Bleh. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2015
12oz bottle, big thanks to the friend that let me have this -- I think Callipalegic? Date on bottle is Apr2015. Pours a clear red brown color. Thin khaki sort of bubbly head. Caramel malt, dark fruit, mustiness up front, toffee, touch of chocolate. Mild spiciness, touch of earth. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, light to moderate carbonation. Slick texture. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, mild spiciness. Kind of plain, malty, and musty on it’s own, but it really works well between bites of my sandwich.
