Bière aux grandes qualités gustatives, la Saint Bernardus Pater 6 est désormais une référence parmi les bières belges dites "D'abbaye". Pourtant, les bières "Saint Bernardus" n'ont jamais été brassée au sein d'une abbaye et encore moins par des moines. Toutefois, leurs recettes ont elles été élaborées par les moines de l'abbaye cistercienne St. Sixtus qui produit aujourd'hui les bières trappistes Westvleteren, considérées comme les bières trappistes les meilleures mais les plus rares qui soient. La Saint Bernardus Pater 6 est une bière brune de haute fermentation qui développe dans le verre une couleur brune ainsi qu'une mousse abondante. Elle dégage des arômes maltés qui procure au nez une sensation de fruité puissante, avec en accompagnement des pointes épicés. On découvre en bouche des saveurs de malts, elles aussi très fruitées. Elles sont par contre suivi d'une amertume, relativement puissante pour une bière brune, qui révèle la présence du houblon.

Brown cloudy with medium light yellow creamy head. In taste balanced sourness, bitterness and caramel, certain fruity and sweet notes.

Immediately a perfect head, a good start! An aroma with subtile lavander and honey. Well-ballaced between sweetness and bitter. I can’t stop drinking this beer, I’d say it’s ’perfect’, but nothing is ’perfect’, really.

Pours caramel with a foamy white head. Aromas of caramel, raisins, figs and rye bread. Taste is very much the same. Competent, but rather unexciting.

330ml bottle poured in a chalice. Classic Belgian Dubbel. St. Bernardus quality, no mistake. A: Pours a nutty dark amber color. Cloudy with many particles floating around. The head is big, beige and persistent. Very aired and foamy. Few lacings left S: Sweet on the nose. Caramel, mainly. Caramel malts, dark fruits. Strong on Belgian yeasts. Earthy hops. Reminds a brown bread somehow T: Follows the nose, a balanced sweet-bitterness belgian style. Candy sugar, caramel malts (actually, quite malty) and raisins. A sweet upfront, bit watery and metallic mouth sensation. Biscuity too. Good bitter end. Hops are earthy. Belgian yeasts M: Medium body and carbonation. A bit molasses. Bitter-sweet Belgian style O: Good drinkability. Not the best St. Bernardus that I’ve had but for sure a great beer [ BA Review @ 10/31/2010 ]

0.33L bottle. Pour clear mahoganey with a huge, rocky, off-white head. Rich aroma profile: bubblegum, fruit and sweet malt, along with dusty basement aromas. Flavor is mildly sweet at first, with some bubblegum and chocolate. Surprisingly absent of flavor in the middle, finishing with a yeasty bitterness. Medium-light body with a thin mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, the flavor disappoints, but aromas are really nice on this beer. Still, very drinkable.

Aroma - sweet rusty smell. Expecting something malty with the first sip. Appearance - poured a brownish color with a big foamy head. Taste - pretty pleasant taste. Sweet but with a balancing tart bitterness. A little "coppery" for my taste. Palate - very fizzy. Overall - good but a little too caramel sweet and bitter for what I was looking for.

"malty brew...maybe a hint of brown sugar? a hint of hops. nice and direct, not a ton of complexity, but pretty tasty. i liked it, but maybe not for the premium price...

Aroma speziato dolce con note di lievito e nocciole il gusto dolce caramellato con una tostatura leggera con note legnose nociole e speziate, finale asciutto, abbastanza corposa e abbastanza equilibrata

Pours a very hazy brown body with a thick head. Nice yeasty aroma. Nice creamy taste with malt tones, lacks the real punch though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
