Borresteijn (6319) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2008
Bottle. At best a watered down version of the Prior 8. Taste is too sweet for me, lots of brown sugar and mouldy St-B-yeast. Won’t drink this too often. There are better St.Bernardus beers.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy brown color with a medium sized beige head and decent lacing. The aroma was moderately sweet fruits, bananas, yeast, and slightly oxidized. The flavor was yeasty, fruity, spices, brown sugar. This was medium bodied with moderate sweetness.

A very good beer. Almost tastes like a juice, but deeper. The brown color is a bit foggy, but it still tastes pretty good. I drank it out of an official St. Bernardus Glass. I am a true fan of Belgian Ales.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Pours hazy brown with two finger head. Nose of plum, figs, molasses, some spicy yeast, and caramel. Flavors are quite sweet- lots of plum and raisin with some spice and brown sugar sweetness. Palate is medium bodied with a semi-dry finish. Came up a little short in my book, but tasty just the same.

twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 20, 2008
bottle. Pours a dark, opaque brown, big chunky off white head that sticks around throughout. Aromas of raisins, black currants, and a cloyingly sweet maltiness. Flavors blend very well... starts with a light touch of floral bitterness, heavy raisin and fig flavors, and some yeast notes. Very even on the palate, a decent amount of active carbonation, and a nice, smooth clean finish. Very good brew.

Maverick34 (2945) - New York, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Bottled. Poured a dark bround w/symmetrical and lasting head. Some raisins & rum aroma. Taste similar w/yeats caramel malts. Pretty good.

ubamartian (155) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark brown. light two finger tight foamy head. Aroma is of pizza dough with a bit of earthy dark fruits. The flavor is even better, dark fruits, spices, a bit of a bread flavor, caramel, and malt. Medium body, has a good smooth feel. Overall this is a very good beer. Not as heavy as many, and more balanced flavor.
