33 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Brown colour with a nice white head. aroma of yeast and sweet caramel. Flavour of yeast, spices, sour and some roasted malt. Not the best from this brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark red, slight brown colored. Medium beige head. Chocolate, sweetness, fine spices in aroma, mild toffee and licorice too. Medium bodied. Chocolate, sweetness, mild spices and alcohol in flavor, mild licorice lasts with some alcohol. Somehow these St. Bernardus products have been slight disappointments because being too sweet, actually this gets best points of these (6,8,tripel and 12).

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from bottle. Pours murky cocoa brown with a sudsy tan head and thick lacing. Aroma is gentle and quite complex: rich malts, carmelized sugars, and fruity exters. Very nice. Flavor is not as complex as the aroma, oddly enough. Balanced towards the sweet side and dry with tart fruits. Medium-bodied and moderately carbonated but still seems a bit thinner than what I expected. Enjoyable.

From bottle. Pours a medium orange brown with frothy tan head. Nose is yeasty with a sweet bread aroma. The body is very carbonated with dark fruits and spices.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It was a dark burnt orange and very coludy when poured from a 11.2 ounce bottle. The head was a creamy white about a 1/4th inch in height and it did not last long. However, this is one carbonated brew. There is no lacing left on the glass, a snifter. It has an aroma of sweet caramel and light fruits and tastes about the same. It finishes clean and the high carbonation makes it refreshing. I could sit down and drink a lot of these.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pours a dark but in no way opaque burgandy with orange hues. The head is large, offwhite, finely bubbled, and incredibly long-lasting. The nost is lightly sweet and somewhat citric with hints of cherries. The palate is very similar, revealing a light alcoholic flavoring and a medium to high sweetness (though not nearly as sweet as the hyper-fermented brews). The carbonation lightens and "covivializes" the light stickiness of the malty sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another dark pour from the saint. Light chocolat brown head that faded quickly. Very easy drinking and would make a great session beer, but not nearly as complex or good as the other St. Bernardus beers. Had much higher then expected carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Average. Easy to drink - some malt and not overly spicy. I find the body a bit light though. Aroma is of raisins, light hops and average malt.
