Flemish monks brewed the first Abt. A voluptuous temptress they named for their Monastery Abbot. Belgian Dark Candi Sugar encourages the decadence of rum, raisin dark chocolate and sherry like fruit tones to conspire happily in almost 20˚ Plato. Rich and full bodied this is one to lie down or if you are bold enjoy now, but take your time - linger. This beer cries to be sipped and enjoyed.

    Subdued Belgian offering from New Glarus. At this point in time the firm sturdiness has subsided. Smooth, but lacking the upfront dark berry and fruity traits associated within this style. Dark mahogany body with a filmy, frothy head and splotchy lacing. Hints of raisin, plum, grape, and gritty sugar. Very solid, but the robustness has left the building. Scary drinkable and very calming.

    burnt raisins, reduced sugar candi, and belgian-esque rumcake are the first team.. . light spots of lacing, low head .. . very slick, tickles my nose, as well as my testes .. . this could be layed down for years, i think 3-5 would be premium .. . A great sneaky quad, thanks John! .. .
    I thought the Rocky Mountains would be a little rockier than this.

    Yeah, that John Denver is full of shit, man.

    Been sitting on this one: courtesy of pfoxyjohn. Pours a Coca-Cola brown with a thin head and little lacing. Welcome aromas of Candi sugar and malts, brown sugar, slight cocoa, some ripe fruits. Taste is very smooth and big with a nice Belgainesque sweetness and yeastiness, slight sweet cocoa, a bit of ripe dates and figs, a little alcohol bite in the end; a real sipper - rich like a rum. New Glarus is a stalwart in the brewing industry and this beer ranks among their best. Thank you John for this treat.

    pours a beautiful red hued dark brown. smells nice. a little sweet...loads of candi sugar, yeast, just enough hops to notice, ripe fruit. the feel is a strongpoint, elegant and smooth. the flavor is only complex as it warms, always a bit on the sweet side, but tasty and memorable.

    Another stellar beer from NG. Super fantastic, flavourful, big bold quad. Pours a dark muddy brown colour with slight reddish tint. Nice effervescene. Fresh, fruity yeast slightlky yeasty aroma. Taste is sort of cinnamon, dates, and prunes with semi sweet desert flavour underneath. Beautiful all around.

    12 oz bottle, courtesy of pfoxyjohn -

    Aroma - I knew I was going to enjoy this beer from the moment I gave it a sniff. Sweet chocolatey malts, cloves, leathery with a strong chcolate Tootsie Roll pop note. It started to get a little spicy when it warmed up just below room temp.

    Appearance - cola brown body, creamy and dense light tan head. Lasting, clingy lace work.

    Taste - great chocolate/toffee/clove/cinnamon combo. I got some peppery/spicy notes about mid-palate and it finishes with a sweet earthy/wet dirt flavor.

    Palate - medium bodied, smooth with medium to light medium carbonation.

    Overall - incredibly enjoyable beer from NG. Yeah, I sound like a broken record when I review beers from NG, "....great.....awesome....incredible". Can’t help it though. Love these guys.

    The appearance of Coca-Cola; clear deep brown, a bubbly pour, and a lively tan head that instantly vaporizes and flattens the body. A smooth, soft palate that progressively deepens with the taste of mission fig, ripe plum, and dark rum. The flavors are muted until the long, warm finish reveals a greater complexity. This is a serious, well-crafted Quad; can't wait until I compare it to a St. B Abt 12 and a Rochefort 10. Until then, a solid 4.0; now just open another bottle and complement it with some Cambozola and Portuguese Crusty Rolls here along the South Shore of Lake Mendota. But, I keep sending this message to New Glarus - Please make some proper glassware available for these great beers of yours. It doesn't seem right to drink this out of an Augustijn chalice, but I'm not going to drink it out of a New Glarus Shaker, Weizen, Pilsner, or Stein. I'd love to see a new line of NG Chalice, Tulip, Snifter & Stange glassware!
