Abbey's aren't my favorite style, but I enjoy one every now and then. I prefer a tripel or a saison. I'm aging a couple of 2013's though to see how they develop.

Notes from 10/15/14. Bottled in 2/2012.

A - Cloudy redish-brown body. Thin layer of off-white head.

S - A little dark fruit. Some spice. Molasses and burnt caramel. Some alcohol comes through as well.

T - Molasses. Tons of sweet caramel. No alcohol. Dark fruit in the middle. Finishes with very rich, smooth caramel notes.

M - Creamy start. Some carbonation in the middle. Thick, syrupy finish.

O - Great dessert beer.
