Flemish monks brewed the first Abt. A voluptuous temptress they named for their Monastery Abbot. Belgian Dark Candi Sugar encourages the decadence of rum, raisin dark chocolate and sherry like fruit tones to conspire happily in almost 20˚ Plato. Rich and full bodied this is one to lie down or if you are bold enjoy now, but take your time - linger. This beer cries to be sipped and enjoyed.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottled August 2010 A: pours a really neat cola ale with a single finger of light tan head which falls quickly to a centrally capped sheet of the same. Little/no lacing. Gotsta give some recognition here, man its brilliant, never seen a quad with this much clarity. S: Malts are typical of a quad, sweet, nougat, some dark stone fruits, maybe a specific hint of prune. Yeast is there, subdued for the style, which is nice IMO. T: Sweet and sweet. I really have a hard time here. Just seems like sweet, malty, belgian candy sugar. Some hints of earthy yeast. M: Thin with moderate carb. Semi-dry finish. Expect a little more body here. O: This beer looks great, unfortunately, it doesnt stand out in the nose. The flavors are one-dimensional. The mouthfeel is unimpressive. Serving type: bottle 07-12-2011

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Dark brown, deep shades of ruby with a muddled, soft gray tinted head. Aroma is sweet dates and prune juice, light phenols, some vinous grape sweetness, and a bit of molasses in the back. Taste is softer than most quads; touch of phenol, bit of prunes and a slight hint of black licorice. Some sweet molasses and a little bit of alcoholic grape in the finish. Decent quad, but this isnt Dans best work.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle from a trade as extra. Aroma is apple, grape must, and Belgian yeast. Flavor is missing that deep date flavor that exists in the best Belgians. Palate is great, carb. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Poured dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma and flavor were molasses, cherry and other dark fruit, moderatly sweet, lightly sour, some dark chocolate. Full mouthfeel. Quite good but not as well integrated as Belgian abts.

Pours a dark brown. No head. Tastes sugary sweet. Aroma has plenty of sugars coming through. Really not my thing, I guess.
