Tasted on tap at Old Chicago’s in Aurora, Colorado. Cherry wood appearance. Aroma smells like a typical sweet Belgian ale with candy sugar. Nutty brown flavor is more dominant than the Belgian ale taste. Body is pretty thin and actually tastes pretty flat. Below average beer.

Bottle. Mostly clear amber pour with a large initial head that fades to a slightly cream colored ring. Aroma is caramel malt and sugar. Medium palate. Taste is quite sweet - notes of dark fruit/plum, some candied sugar, and caramel malt. Really not too bad, especially coming from Coors. Pleasantly surprised.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a small to medium off white head. The aroma has some caramel, belgian sugar, mild spice, yeast and a grassy note to top things off. The flavor was weak overall with only mild caramel malt, spices and light candi sugar. This is about what I expected.

DuffMan (10456) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle. Dark old-penny copper, mahogany highlights. Very low aroma of husky, lightly toasty caramel. Flavour profile is much the same-- very simple, and entirely malt driven. This could just as easily be a "light" doppelbock or scottish ale. There is no yeast character here, there is no spiciness, there are no fruity esters. How is this in any way a "Belgian ale"? FAIL.

marcus (10346) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Pours see-through brown with a thick beige head and a light brown sugar aroma. There is a medium-bodied toffee flavor with a slightly bitter finish.

sebletitje (10095) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2010
Bouteille partagée avec Jcwattsrugger. Couleur ambre, mousse beige. Note malt caramel, avec intonations de levure belge, profile reste plus malt que anticipe pour un style abbaye, peut être l’aspect hiver? Note de caramel, levure, sucre brun et qcq fruits avec une fine couche d’amertume. Pas mauvaise, mais un peu bordélique comme bière surtout dans le style.

Appearance is beautiful for the most part. Clear amber-ish ruby, yet with a rocky and not persistent head. Flat-ish carbonation, surprising from a macrobrew. Aroma was upsetting, mostly funky malt with some bread dough. Taste was just as upsetting. Light caramel, grains, and some nutmeg appear on the palate, with little to no hop profile to speak of. Very light bodied, which is a downer but not unexpected. Just another lazily crafted beer from the MillerCoors folk.

arminjewell (9687) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Pours clear orange-red with white head, aroma has notes of biscuit, some spice, toffee, some slight lemon hints of caramel. Taste is a hint of spice, caramel, some slight biscuit, finishing fairly spicy and bitter.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2013
12oz bottle, thanks to Greg. Best by 5/27/13. Clear brown / red color. Bit of bubbly off-white head, fades to nearly nothing. Lighter carbonation, light body. Kind of watery, not really a fan of the texture. Sweet taste, kind of a sweet nutty flavor. Some caramel, macro feel to the texture, light spice, maybe some honey. Doesn’t really taste "abbey" at all. Artificial flavors added to attempt a "Belgian" profile just taste artificial. I managed to finish the whole bottle, but I didn’t really enjoy it.

3.2
bb (9525) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle. Bronze beer with a light tan head. Caramel, citrus, and light yeast aroma. Citrus, light caramel, and light wheat flavor. Medium bodied. Caramel, wheat, and citrus lingers.
