DocLock (10471) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle from Capones. 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.

BVery (10122) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2011
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.

DuffMan (10070) - 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 (9991) - 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.

alexsdad06 (9936) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2011
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.

Bouteille partage 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 tre laspect hiver? Note de caramel, levure, sucre brun et qcq fruits avec une fine couche damertume. Pas mauvaise, mais un peu bordlique comme bire surtout dans le style.

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. Doesnt 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 didnt really enjoy it.

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.

12 ounce beer from Dans. Pours a clear dark amber color with a small white head. A sweet light spicy nose. The flavor is a smooth light fruitiness, some sweet malt and caramel. Watery, decent. Wait, 5.6%? We can only see 4% and below in grocery stores. Hmmmm.
