Draft. Crappy. This tarnishes the word "abbey." Drinking this ale as an "abbey" ale was like running to McDonald’s for a "gourmet" burger. It’s just not going to happen. The aroma was faint, and I almost caught a bit of molasses. The appearance was an average brown, little head, no lacing. The palate was a diminished medium, and the taste was a muted version of a Belgian. Almost dampened with a dull, flat finished. Blech.

Clean malty aromas with a touch of spice. Deep brown with a fading beige head. Sweet without a lot of development. Medium bodied with a sweet quick finish. timc100 (314) - Park Ridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2012
An odd mystery brew. Spicey with prominent chocolate presence, some
Belgian yeast and caramel. Don't really know what to say..

Bottle. Sweet smell and taste but rather nondescript. Pours clean, amber color with light head. Not too bad, tasty but could be better.

At least I drank this one. Not much going on, but the hint of wheat takes the edge off this attempt at a dark beer. More toffee than dark fruit. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2010
From bottle. Mild sweet caramel aroma, straining to be a dubbel. Light diacetyl. No hop aroma. Dark brown amber clear with thin head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with light malt, a bit of caramel, and buttery character. Dry bitter hops at the finish but mild. Sweet nutty after. Not very impressive.

Bottle from pikapp327. Brown pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is weak, grainy, a little dark fruity, and uneventful. Taste is mostly the same. No aftertaste. Watery. Onslow (1495) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Dark amber clear brew with a short lived off white head. Aroma of light grains, teaberry. Sweet flavor, light grains, not much in the finish. Thin palate. dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle. Poured a murky amber color with a smaller white head, the head did retain throughout the entire beer. Aroma was biscuit, caramel, and some fruit. Flavor was malts, some tart in the finish. Not a whole lot to this beer. Very weak and watery, thin body.
