Dark, opaque color with an insane billowing head. Taste is fruity...almost like a Christmas cake. Raisin, cherry licorice after taste. Very good.

I love this ale! And yes, I am a bit bias when it comes to the Abbey Ale line up. And no doubt, this a lead contender. And for me, I can fairly judge a beer/wine store by its selection of Abbey Ales. Without touting my love any further, this ale packs a delightful punch of pure malts. An instant salivation, especially when the froth saturates your ever hunger. YUM!

From notes on 1/12/13

Sweet malty aroma with lots of yeast. Brown color with creamy very foamy head. Has a bready, malty flavor with hints of licorice and caramel.

Appearance: It has a nice murky amber/brown color to it. It has a nice creamy beige head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of dark fruit (plums, figs, raisins), some breadiness, brown sugar and some spiciness form the yeast.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has sweet dark fruit (plums and figs mostly) a light breadiness, some brown sugar and a touch of spicy Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. Good but nothing exciting.

Serving type: bottle
