Wow this one chocked me, poured a dark brown with massive head good lacing. Aroma was of spices alcohol and malts. Flavor was fruity malty. Now that mouthfeel that is where it was at so creamy perfect.

Thank you Ross for this gem. Pours a deep brown/orange with a prolific bubbly head that eventually settles into a 1/2 inch blanket. Big earthy aroma with stewed fruits, molasses, a bit of spice. Flavor is big and complex without being overwhelming. Alot more of the cooked fruit, malt, alcohol and holiday type spice. Nice warming effect, lively carbonation with a lingering sweetness. Excellent beer!!

Bottle. Dense and murky brown. Malty in aroma, full and sweet tastewise. Complex. Rock solid beer.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2006
Pours a large head, with lots of lacing. Dark fruits are there, but not as intense as the 12, alcohol is well hidden, and I was suprised how the aftertaste wasn’t too strong. Dark fruit, Abit yeasty, very drinkable, another great bier from St B.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Pours burnt orange w/ full semi creamy froth. Aroma of red licorice and rock candy. Medium to full nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are slightly sweet w/ stewed apricot, peach, raisons, brown sugar, angstura bitters, anise, ginger root, cinnamon, and chewing tobacco. The finish has a nice dry bittering. This is one complex specimen. Well balanced, not too sweet, alcohol is well hidden. Connoiseurs choice! Highly recommended. I have to say this again. I love this brewery. Everything they do is amazing.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2006
From a slender 11.2 oz. brown bottle with a best before date on the back label, 03.02.10, sampled at a cellar temperature in a chalice. Poured a nice dubbel brown with a foamy, fizzy topped off-white/beige head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing, a fair amount of ringed sticking. Aromas of caramel and bready malts, a tad buttery, plums with a trace of apple fruity and whiffs of alcohol. Good light carbonation and a malty crisp, creamy smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. Nice, malty tasting, cocoa, an earthy nuttiness, bready, a light fruitiness, a soft bitterness from the hops, the alcohol is noticeable at the end, warming through out, and a dryish sweet, mild caramel and alcohol finish, very good dubbel drinkability, dangerously quaffable. Another good brew from St. Bernardus, tasty and balanced, a great Belgian ale to recommend to a someone who starting to explore Belgians.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours murky brown with a decent size beige head. Citrus, fruit, spices, and alcohol. The flavor is exceptionally smooth, citrus, fruit, sweet. Great body, great brew.

cchubb (74) - Minneola, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2006
750 bottle. Pours a thick, dark rust color with big large-bubble head that lasted until the last sip. Amazingly complex but subtle aromas of raisins, orange and almonds. Palate was complex with high maltiness but low overall sweetness. Sourness was milder than many abby ales. High yeast content but it stayed in the bottom well and I could pour all but about an ounce. No hint of the alcohol flavor (until I tried to stand up...). Left me wanting another.

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Poured from the bottle a dark brown with a big tan head. Aroma was of malt and dark fruits. Flavor consisted of sweet malts, dark fruits(raisin/prunes/dates), and it had a good alcohol warming as it went down.

ajolly2 (129) - USA - AUG 16, 2006
UPDATED: APR 19, 2007 Pours dark brown and red, a little syrupy. Can taste the alcohol and the complexity. A fruity aroma. Thick-bodied. Fruity and malty in the mouth. If college wasn’t making me broke, I would drink it more often. Definitely worth a try or 12.
