R4N5H (283) - SINGAPORE - JUL 5, 2015
Oosters Singapore on 03/07/15. 33cl bottle (shared), poured into an official St.Bernardus chalice. Light brown in colour with a thin beige coloured head. Medium carbonation. Funky fruity aroma, with malt, dark fruit and spices. Very sour on the palate, although the sourness reduces as the beer warms in the glass. Flavour of raisin, sour plums, malt and molasses. I do have a concern that the sourness was as a result of poor handling in shipping (dates was fine, BBE 2017).

sjorsvdg (131) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2015
Een lekker donker bier van St. Bernardus. De typische smaak van de gist, tarwe, licht zoet, fruitig. Een milde variant van de 12.

Finally got around to trying one of these last Christmas - solid dubbel, but I’ll just spring for the Abt 12 instead.

puren (231) - POLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Prezentacja: ciemnomiedziane, klarowne, piana bardzo obfita, ale dosyć gruba i szybko opada do zbitego trwałego kożucha, koronka słaba, ale ładne łzy ;
Aromat: drewno nasączone whisky, mosiądz, owoce w alkoholu - śliwki, rodzynki, toffi/karmel ;
Odczucie: średnio treściwe, wysoko nasycone, lekkie ściąganie na języku, bardzo delikatne rozgrzewanie w przełyku, finisz karmelowy i alkoholowy ;
Smak: bardzo słodki - karmel, rum, alkohol, śliwki, morele ;
Ogólnie: niezwykle bogate na każdym poziomie .

Beardbeerman (251) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours a dark amber topped by a fizzy/creamy head with a light tan. Retention and lacong are pretty good. The nose is fresh and earthy and gives off nutty caramel malts, dark fruits and some cloves. The taste is sweet, nutty and earthy through a medium body with sharp carbonation. Nice lingering toffee finish. Cheers!
