P- Thanks to Ray in Pittsburgh for this beer.

A- a mahogany color wtih tints of red/cooper tones. Foamy head that is about 2 fingers but doesnt have staying power and has poor lacing.

S- vanilla and malt tones. thats pretty much it.

T- vanilla comes out in the tongue but pretty bland overall in taste

M- Very light and i was expecting something heavier. Doesnt match well.

O- Coors is a weak brewery when it comes to micros and this brew just reaffirms that for me.

The Winter Abbey Ale pours a brilliant caramel color, while on the nose you get a nutty, burnt sugar aroma...not surprising, as they use dark Belgian candi (yes, that's how THEY spell it) sugar in the recipe. Heavy in the mouth, while on the tongue a strong nutty attack, followed by a darker sweetness reminiscent of molasses, and a slightly creamy finish, all balanced with just enough hop bitterness to prevent it from being too sugary.

This is a great winter beer, perfect for sitting around a fireplace and enjoying great conversation, the beer equivalent of Sherry or Port. Food recommendations include heavy stews and chocolate based desserts, but I suggest just savorying it on it's own. Cheers!
