Tap at the yard house. Ruby red-brown color, thick creamy foam. Aroma of malt, chocolate and caramel. Sweet malt taste, light chocolate, lively on the palate. Great beer.

tmoreau (2559) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a murky, brown tone, with a modest layer of tan head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was malty sweetness, ripened & dried fruit, and a hint of banana. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the flavor’s sweetness was more as brown sugar, esters included some ripe apple, and the alcohol’s disposition was pleasantly warming. Maybe a little age on this bottle, but still tasty.

11.2 oz bottle poured into chalice. Aroma of malts and some fruit with a slight almost smokiness. Pours a rich dark brown with a rapidly dissipating light beige head. Very great mouthfeel with a perfect amount of carbonation to it. Flavors of malt and yeast throughout. Exceptional beer.

330cc bottle. One of my favourites from one of my favourite stiles. I always have them home. It just feels that everything in it is where it should be.

Gregus (288) - Kraków, POLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Butelka; barwa brazowa, zmętniona. Piana bujna, cienka warstwa zostaje do końca. Aromat owocowy, bananowy, przyprawowy, słodowy, ciemnych suszonych owoców, karmelu, wanilii. Smak owocowy, karmelowy, bananowy, przyprawowy. Alkohol rozgrzewajacy, trochę zbyt wyczuwalny. W ustach gładkie.

MMR (339) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2014
I’m a big fan of the St. Bernardus Quadruppel and Tripel but I’m afraid I didn’t care to much for this Prior 8. It’s a decent beer but rather lacks on the aroma.

330 ml bottle
Clear mahogany brown beer with beige head, quite faint for a Belgian ale. Aroma has sour appley Belgian yeast, dark fruits, dark sugar, raisin and fudge. Flavor has burned sugar, fudge and dark fruits. Palate is medium full and foamy. Finish has medium bite of bitterness. Aftertaste has alcohol, herbs, burned sugar and licorice. Pouring in the yeast makes the beer murky and adds some anise in the aftertaste. The beer is quite straightforward and harsh. OK for slow sipping, but I’ve had better Belgian dark ales.
