4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is somewhat faint but has sweet, yeasty and bready elements. The flavor is strong and very malty with ripe fruits - raisin and plum particularly and hints of chocolate, toffee and caramel. Wonderful!

This beer made me smile. Had a different Belgian just prior (no pun intended) that didn’t do the trick. This is much better. Dark pour with a tan head. Warm palate and flavors. Caramel, chocolate, malt. Tasty.

Bottled(330ml). –So far the best St.Bernardus that I’ve tried. Dark brown almost black coloured, medium pale brown head, slight malty chocolate nose. Aroma is malty, spicy, caramel and cocoa with lots of fruit (raisins, plums and prunes). Nice fruity and slight alcoholic finish.

0.33l bottle at home. It was a real pleasure to drink this beer. The most distinctive is smooth, creamy mouthful and than after few seconds pleasant warmth. Excellent beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice mahogany colour, with stable and dense head. The aroma is very fruity, with a lot of citrus, chocolate, malts and aromahops. The palate is really creamy, and the flavor has fruits, and really much chocolate and caramel, but also a little alcohol.

Pours a dark hazy brown witha decent head. Delicious fruit, bready, sweat, and spicy aroma. Very tasty flavors of sweet malt, dark fruit, spice, bread, plum, and belgian yeast. Very complex, good stuff.

Nice dark and cloudy, plum color with lots of foamy head. Sweet fruits and plenty of sweet malty aroma - Taste matches the fine aroma, with a nice yeasty bite. Plum, raisin, and sweet malt tastes blend together nicely. A really good Belgian strong - not the best, but a quality product from a quality brewery.
