COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Monastic breweries wrote the book on complex ales that weave notes of dark fruits, spices, caramelized character and warmth into each sip. The Order summons that tradition and adds local inspiration. Our darkening, Belgian-inspired abbey ale features dark-fruited character from dates, Belgian-style sugars and subtle spicing from coriander, which compliments the Belgian yeast esters.

tmoreau (4225) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2017
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. and snifters served showing a clear, deep copper color, with a fingers width of off white/light tan foam, and web-like cling to the lacing. The nose was Belgian yeast & spice, dark & dried fruit as cherry, date & fig, and a touch of malt creaminess. A little heftier than medium bodied, with a lively spritz to the effervescence, the taste was similar, with a slight creaminess to the mouthfeel, some earthy & rind-like bitterness, and alcohol that pleasantly melded with the flavor notes. Not as bold as expected, but definitely a repeater.

Dark mahagony pour. Something between a dubbel and a quad. Yeasty, bready sweet plum chocolate. Good stuff. I was worried coriander, but it was done with a deft hand, and components the beer and figs.

wxman (1808) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Pours a hazy orange amber with a substantial antique lace head. Aroma is rock candy and toffee. Taste is sweet caramel malt, buttered biscuits, toffee, dried dark fruit and a bit of hop bitterness. Warmth after the swallow gives away the ABV, but alcohol not evident in the taste. Very good.

This was pretty underwhelming all around. A bit too sweet, the flavor just isnt that enjoyable. It feels too alcoholic and bland. Big disappointment

Thisis12ptfont (1167) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - APR 18, 2017
Aromas of belgian yeast dark fruits amber malts, candi sugar toffee dates, figs, cinnamon brown sugar and bready malts. Pours a deep brown with a very thin tan foam and moderate lacing. Taste offers delicious Belgian yeast, candied caramel, candi sugar, toasted sugars, creme brulee, bready malts, toffee, dark fruits, dates, prunes, raisins and brown sugar. Finishes moderately boozy with carbonated fruity esters. Overall, this brew is assertively carbonated and you will notice that. It is still very enjoyable and boasts really unique flavors. A rating.

The smell is sweet, spicy, the look is Belgian brown, the taste is spicy, sweet, malty, dark fruit such as plum, raisins, good size ABV. Not a lot of burn, but the spices really hit you after the swallow. Solid beer.
