Aroma has some sweet apples, malts and nuts. Pours dark amber with a white head. Taste is very sweet with malts and fruits, and a little acidic. Sticky palate, lingers in your mouth. Overall a decent beer, though it doesn’t taste very much.

Big bottle from total wine and spirits with commonmac and rosskyle. Cloudy plum Color with off white head. Sour dark fruit aroma with funkiness. Yeast, dark fruit, slight Belgian yeast and sourness, and fuzzy finish. Fills out their portfolio well even if it’s not as great as the 8, 10, 12.

commonmac (698) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle purchased at Total Wine & Spirits. Poured into Belgian glass. Aroma is kind of a cola, plum/dark fruit. It’s a murky, mahogany/brown color with tan head. Little bit of a funky, yeast or borderline sour quality. Nice round mouthfeel that almost has a velvety characteristic. Malty with dark fruit at the finish. Pretty solid but others in the St. Bernardus family are better.

Served out of a bottle at Mac's house. Dark red color with medium white head. Sweet plum aroma. Medium to light body. Raisin plum sweet flavor but weaker than other St. Bernardus beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
