Muddy brown, thin beige head. aroma of red aples and molasses, mixed with a bit of rum. Flavor is molasses and fruit, like maybe figs or prunes. Surprisng amount of alcohol heat for 6.7% beer. Nice earthy, rough finish.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown with some light pouring through and a two finger or so head that is fairly dense. Has aromas that are woody and nutty with a bit of bread dough, yeast and spice. Flavor is a little different, however, as it mixes dark fruit, sawdust, allspice and rye bread. Thought this would be much different, although this is pretty darn acceptable.

I would expect nothing less from St Bernardus. Taste of sweet fruit, caramel, malt. Mid to full bodied and yet easily drinkable.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2008 0.33l bottle, pale brown pour with tan head.
Quite light for a "dark"; beer, fruity, sweet and caramel flavours, some malt, no alcohol. Very enjoyable and full of flavour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Stirchley Wines and Spirits, Birmingham. Poured a hazy brown colour with a dissipating white head.. Some fruit, yeast and spice in the aroma.
Flavour was sweetish and malty. Some dark fruit and spice in there somewhere. Carbonation was a bit on the heavy side. Nothing special on the whole and expected a lot more.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Melted caramel in color with a medium, tan head. Fruity aroma backed by malts, spices, light molasses, and a touch of sourness. Full bodied with lively carbonation. Very flavorful. Spicy yeast, malts, caramel, and some fruit as well. While I wouldn’t call it earth shattering it’s a very solid belgian.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
cola brown pour with a medium sized dirty white head. Aroma is up front pear and heavy malt. Flavor is caramel, pear, orange, kiwi, and a bit of spice. Finishes prickly carbonated, very easy to drink for the style. No hint of any booze, lightly refreshing which is weird for the flavors I am getting.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful head. Simple, yet complex. Or rather, there are a variety nice flavors & aromas that blend perfectly together to make one solid profile, however when analyzed delicious moderately sweet bready caramel malt lays flat and soft on the tongue, while grapes among other fresh fruits coupled with an interesting, yet very gentle yeast character floats harmoniously above. Decently smooth on the carbonation, but a tad too thin and watery.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep cloudy brown, huge tan foamy head. Strong aroma of dark sugar, malple, nut, fig, barely, and yeast. Very nice complex aroma. Flavor is like a high quality strong pilsener, with the skunky hops. Also tastes like roasted caramel barely malt, and raw brown sugar. The feel of this beer is good and refreshing, and nicely carbonated on the taste. Refreshing, full, finish with a nice bite.
