Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear ruby colored with 1-finger tan head. Nose is caramel malt, mild butyrides, brown sugar. Tastes pedestrian, very Wheaties-like with not much else. Meh. Desverger (11455) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2013

and Billet, Blackheath, SE London - Dark brown/amber in colour with a medium beige head. Caramel malt and ripe/dried fruits, sweet sugar and toffee most prominent here overall. Not bad and pretty warming seasonal.
A very blah beer. Not crazy about the aftertaste. Looks good. I suppose a so-so attempt to make a Belgian style beer.

I like this beer. Nice spiciness, perfect color, with plenty of kick. A nice winter warmer. shadedreality (1) - - FEB 1, 2013 does not count
I love this dark beer. No bitter taste just subtle Carmel and a wonderful ale and amazingly smooth!

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Mostly soap on the nose, faint spices. Burnt amber color is promising, but like a lot of mass produced beers, the taste aims for inoffensiveness rather than complexity. Vaguely spicy finish. Why make it so smooth and watery? The Coors crowd isn’t going to be buying this, so who do you think is picking a beer called "Winter Abbey Ale" off the shelves? Craft beer fans. Needs to be much bolder. snoworsummer (5697) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle on the beach. Malty smell. Nice body. Smooth taste. Winter spices. Low carbonation. DMLINAZ (332) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours copper with a fizzy head that disappears quickly. Not much aroma, just some malts. Flavor is OK, maltiness with a hint of citrus, wheat. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear darker brown color with a moderate frothy off-white head. Nose is a little sweet with some caramel notes. Taste is a little sweet with more caramel notes. Actually not bad. Stampion (274) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Nice color, malty and sweet. Aftertaste lingers unwelcomely. Sort of disappointed that there are two more in the pack.
