A- dark brown, keeps a good 3 cm of head for quite a while.

S-Malt and sweet caramel

T- REALLY SWEET. Caramel and malt. Little bit of hops on the end.

F- Very smooth with just a bit of carbonation for fizz.

O- I can see a lot of people really liking this beer. If you like very sweet, malty caramel, then it is for you. For me, the sweetness is a little too overpowering. I probably won't drink it again, but will recommend to friends .

Pours a mahogany color, and produced a big 3 finger beige head. Long lasting head, with lacing.
The aroma was of malt, Belgian yeast, caramel.
The taste is the same,but with lingering bread taste. No real hop presence. Medium mouth-feel, medium carbonation. Good tasting...nothing extreme, just easy drinking.

A: Dark ruby in colour with a brown cream head. Head poured was about 1 inch and then fell to a consistent thin layer. Head coats the glass as you consume it. Beer is clear

S: A caramel/roasty smell is present with alcohol in the back ground. The caramel smell carries the roast but dominates it in a pleasant way.

T: Deep caramel flavour with little sweetness left over. bitterness is well balanced and the warmth of the alcohol is present only in the end but is pleasant. Notes of vanilla and toffee are present

M: Carbonation is dead on. Good clean tast, crisp carbonation, dry finish.

O: This beer is a go to Abbey beer. This Brown is great with rich red meats and can handle spicy foods.

Picked up a bottle on my brother's recommendation. Poured a deep chestnut color with a very tall rocky head. Fruity aroma with some yeast and vanilla cookie. Taste unmistakably chocolate and lightly cherry. Small bit or a roasty finish. Smooth texture. Very lightly carbonated. A nice beer. Very smooth and mellow compared to most American brown ales.

A clear dark brown color with a huge shaving cream tan colored head. Sheets of lacing all down the glass.

Toasted malt, banana, clove aromas.

A nice sweet toasted malt flavor that blends with a touch of clove and fig with some other fruity esters in the background. A rather large candi sugar flavor and sweetness is also present.

Medium body with higher carbonation and a sweet finish.

A good Belgian ale. Would go well with a meal or dessert, but drinking by itself may get a bit overwhelming from the large amount of sweetness.

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Pours very dark brown with full inch and white puffy foam. Laces and sticks. Dark roasted brown. Nutty. Some yeast. Caramel taste that evolves into a chewy tasty bitter. Rich taste, flavorful. Full mouthfeel. Pretty good brown.
