3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very huge head, just off-white and very tenacious over hazy dark-amber beer.
Chocolate & ambrée malts impression, yeasty esters, bit of sucade, and strangely, fresh malt (beer is not young). Esters are both fruity and meaty, as in in charcuterie.
Again this estery-fruity flavour, with orangezeste and, again chocolate. Pimms’ cake? Cake is true, as there seems to be a bit of mineral retronasal. As well as gingery spicyness. I’m really wondering about the chocolate flavour, as it keeps coming back warming up.
Slightly burning MF. Full bodied, if not like a 12°. Creamy texture, but the (shaken) yeast might be helping. Alcoholwarming (fusels?). Good balance.
Very fruity and sweet. But as a sipping beer, this is quite agreable.
Many thanks to Marco from the brewery, for one of the last bottles in stock.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hoppy aroma with hints of alcohol and apricots. Flavors is malty with a long dry finish and warming alcohol. Sparkly mouth feel and oily texture. This is a really well composed and balanced beer. Quite quaffable, if you turn the bottle, as to not look at the monkretard.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Inviting notes of rich dried winter fruits and a pleasant deep dark orange hue greets the reveller. Flavor-wise, nothing new under the sun for regular brune drinkers, although it is pleasant enough in its own right. For people such as myself who have never been St. Bernardus followers, this is not going to win any converts. Oh, and do something about that retard monk on the labels.....

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Uklar belgisk øl (75 cl) købt i Kvickly til 32 kr.
Øllen er orange, og har luftigt skum med store bobler.
Duften er krydret.
Smagen er blandet kryderet- minder meget om juleøl. Er sikkert god til sild.
Øllen er syrlig og tung. Noget sød.
Ikke lige noget for mig

(Bottle) Nice seasonal beer from St. Bernardus. Pours amber brown with white stable head. Complex taste with delicious notes of dried fruits and malts. The beer is very sweet, perhaps a bit too sweet. Very enjoyable..!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
brown with white head. Yeasty with a bit of sweetness. (75cl). A bit of caramel. An OK beer from sint bernardus, but its fine that its only a "seasonal beer".
