while there is nothing fundamental wrong with this beer, it lacks anything that would make a abbey special to drink in the fall/winter season. got a nice malt with a touch of sweetness. medium malts with very little hop flavor. decent, not great. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark amber with a thin-moderate linen white head that fades to a film by the second sip and leave scant lace. Weak aroma of toffee and not much else. The flavor is equally weak malt along with some even weaker spice and ending with some stale malt. Light bitterness at the finish. Not something I would look to revisit. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Bottle at the 35th Street Bistro. Thank goodness they’re about to overhaul their selection. Poured a dark copper color, with a quickly fizzling head. Tastes like someone took a cheap abbey dubbel and dumped half a Coors Light into it. The toffee is tweaked by breakfast cereal grains and corn. It’s far better than a Coors Light... but it reeks of it. cooplander (543) - Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2012

Deep brown pour, very light head and lace. Sweet malt and breads. Sugar and caramel aroma. Nothing unique to it.

Bottle. Pours dark amber with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is bready, caramel, some banana. Flavor is quite caramel and bready, some toffee, banana, touch of clove and molasses. Very sweet. Mouthfeel’s on the thin side. Pretty drinkable, but too sweet. yespr (45508) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2012
12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma is caramelish and vague phenolic. Light breadish malty. Sweet malty, caramelish and light breadish. Bitter and mild herbal into the finish. Oscbert (1306) - Lincoln, California, USA - NOV 8, 2012
~Sweet aroma of a touch of cherry candy with raisin and clove spiciness. Sweetness is a bit cloying.
~Pours a clear amberish brown with quickly disappearing head
~Carmel and bread in flavor with very light spice.
~Medium body, medium CO2, sweet bready finish.
~I could drink these, but pretty bland and boring. Uneventful. Stldsf1 (616) - Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Slight wheat balanced with typical winter spices. Nothing super or original here.
