westler (91) - Stuttgart, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2015
Intense chestnut brown, small head. Yeasty bread-like aroma. Malty notes. Full aroma, dark bread, a bit sweet but developing a full and bitter taste. Quite rich for only 6,7 % alc.

McGarnigle (576) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2015
This is a nice dubbel. Fairy light on the tongue in the typical Belgian way, but flavorful. Some caramel, maybe raisins, botanical yeast. Not a blockbuster like the bigger StBs.

Alpha10 (415) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
2015/03/03 - Pours a hazy brown-amber colour with a soapy, khaki head that quickly reduces to a film. Aroma is yeast, mild banana, doughy notes, caramel, raisin, dates, figs and herbal hops. Taste starts doughy yeast and mild banana, shifts to dark fruits (raisins, dates, figs) and caramel and finishes with mildly bitter, herbal hops. A nice "lighter" beer from St. Bernie. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ebarnes (260) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - MAR 1, 2015
12oz bottle from a sample pack. Pours darker than the 12, 8 or tripel. Almost no head. Aroma has very slight notes of spice must. Taste is smooth. No hint at all of the ABV. Maybe the best of the St. Bernardus beers.

Dark reddish brown beer, cloudy, with white head. Aroma: Sharp aroma of belgian yeasts, some basement/barnyard, spices, than fruity-wine aromas. Taste: Mainly sour. Flavors same as in aroma: spice herbs, wine. Body: medium, short, sour finish. Really nice Belgian Dubbel. Definitly what I’m expecting in this style.

Hallstein (244) - Skogn, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2015
Pours a nice dark ruby red with a small head. On the nose i get banana, and the beer also has nice yeasty and bready character. Flavor is quite good and complex with flavors of caramel, dusty leather, candi syrup with a quite nice carbonated mouthfeel. Beer has a quite dry finish and is nicely balanced.
