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. drowland (8758) - Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2011 11/21/11. 12oz bottle from the winter 12pk... how is this different than the Full Moon they used to make? Hope I didn’t just ruin a bunch of ticks for people. Clear amber/red pour with a small khaki head that fades fast, sticks a little, and barely laces. Light aroma of caramel, metal, and a touch of spice. Sweet caramel flavor with a surprising amount of chocolate and roast in there, along with another metallic kick. Lingering sweet caramel and metal as well. Bleh.

Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours amber with tan head. The aroma is sweet with caramel, apple and chocolate chip cookie. Pretty nice. The taste is smooth with apples, caramel and muted cherry to midway. It seems to stay that way leanining toward smooth blended dark fruitiness into the finish.

Bottle. Setting aside its claim on the bottle, and that it doesn’t really hold a candle to any other abbey ale on the planet, this one wasn’t actually that bad. It is more like a brown ale than anything else. Mild spice character. Entirely drinkable, and probably something you could convince absolute non-beer drinkers to partake in. Poured a medium dark amber color, medium fluffy head. Aroma was sweet toffee notes, caramel.

Bottle. Clear reddish brown pour with a thick tan head. Malty and caramelly nose with notes of roast, slight esters, vanilla and sugar. Sweet malt and caramel flavor with subtle Belgian esters and some breadiness before a semi-sweet finish. PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Super Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark amber pour, tight, off white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Sweet, sugary aroma with hints of Christmas spices. Flavor has some toffee notes, some candied sugar, a back end of caramel and just a hint of Christmas spices. Mouthfeel is a bit lacking, thickness does not match the flavor. Overall, decent though.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a very large tan head. The aroma was sweet, tangy and a bit tart. The flavor was sweetish, tangy and had a hint of caramel but not a whole lot else. The finish was long and tangy. Nothing special. Ernest (7696) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain, popcorn), lightly hoppy (apricot), with light notes of vanilla and brown sugar. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Very simple and not a lot to balance the sweetness, but inoffensive. Pretty much the same as the old Full Moon, just a bit darker and less metallic. Still popcorn-husky though.
