Thanks to MrBendo for this one. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with faint head. Aroma of malt, yeast and spice. A very nice Belgian style. Flavor is sweet spices and malty ripened fruit. Very good.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2008 Dark dirty brown with a bit of tan head. Very sweet aroma , malty and roasty. Similar flavor, with a lot of brown sugar and ripe fruit. Low carbonation and alcohol, very smooth and thicker than average. No bitterness, not very well balanced, but otherwise excellent.

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2006
Hazy light brown under a short-lived light khaki head. Malty aroma with some dried fruit, fig and banana bread. Solidly malty flavor but still well-balanced with notes of clove, banana, caramel and toasted nuts. Relatively full-bodied mouthfeel and a slightly sweet finish with some hop bitterness at the very end. The flavors and texture are there but this brew still missed the mark for me somehow. Despite that, its still a decent beer though not one of the better winter offerrings out there.

Yum! Banana, chocolate, and other fruites and spices! Well balanced and just plain good. Should be available year round.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2007 bottle. Slightly hazy orange/copper with a medium head. Aroma of yeast, pears, oranges and spice. Tastes sweet with brown sugar, ripe fruit and citrus. Medium body. Leaves a tang at the finish.

12 oz. bottle 11/13/06. Pours a dark cloudy orange color with a sweet malty, fruity nose. Thin tan head that quickly diminishes. Spicy flavors, reminds me of a more fruit and flavor filled spice beer like that of anchor christmas. Hints of citrus, possibly lemon with a hint of alcohol to finish off the taste. Quite frankly a very weak unimpressive palate to end a real solid beer. Flavors are pretty weak when you let it sit in your mouth and after taste is not there. Other than the ending a pretty impressive brew in my opinion.

tastes rich with a roasted chocolaty malt, a little hoppy for added sexiness, a bit spiced, just some how not put together well

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Pours murky amber/brown with a small tan head. Aroma has notes of dark fruit, yeast, mild hops, spice, and sweet malts. Flavor is very similar to the aroma, but with a little more bitterness than expected. Palate is medium, a bit oily, slightly bitter, and some mild spice. Not the best Abbey Ive had, and a little unbalanced, but still fairly pleasant.
