11.5 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak glass

A: A beautiful amber brown and a light tan collar.
S: Lots of raisin and overly ripe bananas.
T: Quite the quad. You can definitely taste those esters and the Belgian candi. Lots of ripe banana and raisins. It definitely tends a bit more towards their style name of: Abbey-style brown ale. I can definitely taste the brown ale in this. It is a bit nutty.
M: The lightest carbonation that is extremely fuzzy. Like a room temperature Sprite that was just opened. So many bubbles, that the liquid portion is almost covered up.
O: Just a delicious quad. Interesting and with a great name. Not sure what the ABT stands for.

Aroma of caramel. Pours cloudy brown with minimal head. Heavy sweet flavours. Full bodied with slightly sticky texture, average carbonation. Overall a nice strong beer, if a bit on the sweet side.

From the 12 ounce bottle into an oversized wine glass.

A- thin khaki-colored head that dissipates quickly leaving scattered lace above the body. Body is thick-looking and caramel-colored.

S- heavy plum and Belgian candy syrup. Caramel and burnt sugar.

T- Continued plum, huge really, with a finish that is cherry-like. There's a slight estery yeast flavor and hints of the candy syrup.

M- incredibly easy-drinking and smooth. No alcohol presence.

A great representation with big flavors but still mellow and enjoyable.

$ 5.99/11.5 oz bottle at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Bottle dated 1 4 at 40 degrees into chalice
Weak aroma of malt and yeast phenolics
Head small (1 cm), light brown, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to partial 1 mm ring
Lacing none
Body medium brown, cloudy
Flavor of dates and figs, possibly some raisins as well; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate full, creamy, lively carbonation

Although totally lacking a head and lacing and being only medium brown, in other characteristics this resembles a quad. The alcohol, while not noticeable in the flavor, makes itself evident in the following stomach burn. Pretty weak overall, this may be a good gateway beer for someone afraid of quads.
