dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2005
High dense tan head on a hazy brown body. Very well rounded brew, delicious drinking with lots of taste hints: caramel, fruits, chocolate, raosted nuts. A real caleidoscope. One of my faourite ales.

rpattinson (84) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2005
Dark brown colour with a dense head; pepper, plum, spice and caramel aromas; sweetish/bitter taste with liquorice, dates, alcohol, cherry, pepper and caramel aromas; bitter finish with liquorice, roast, toffee, chocolate and chicory aromas. A wonderfully complex ale. Amongst the very best Belgian beers.

drpimento (2152) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Pours with a very thick, creamy, frothy head with lots of lace that lasts and lasts. Dark brown with amber/red highlights. Aromas of grapes, cherries, vodka, and brandy. Flavor isn’t as fruity aand also has notes of burnt sugar, coffee, and walnuts. Predominant alcohol character. Little thin in body. Had it on tap at Bodega in La Crosse where they have it in bottles too.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 25, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2005 Minor rerate based on resample and reassessment, bumping the flavor down a point. Nevertheless, the original review...

Hazy, murky caramel brown with a fading, lacy tan and bubbly head. It’s a beauty. Aroma leads in with rich chocolate, unsalted walnuts, cloves, coriander, pepper, banana and nutmeg. Taste delivers. Rich, creamy, vibrant chocolate and caramel complimented by subtle spicing. Slight hint toward deep fruity esters of plums and black cherries, but it is first and foremost sweet and smooth. Creamy and full-bodied. Impeccable palate feel, blanketing with a lasting sweetness and complexity. Chewy malts; so sweet, so good. Absolutely no trace of alcohol content. Rich chocolatey finish. Simply a delight in every way.

kepano (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 25, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 Pours a perfectly opaque dark brown with a foamy tan head. The nose reminds of dark fruits: figs, plums, raspberry and a sweet creaminess. The mouthfeel is very creamy with medium carbonation. Leaves beautiful thin lacing on all sides of the glass. Pleasant warm aftertaste.

Dextolen (151) - Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2005
A friend brought over a selection of St. Bernardus ales for our "Weekend at Bernie’s" Poured a rich brown with an off-white head that remained for a while. Aromas of malt, bready yeast, and earthy fruits. Caramel and malt flavors dominate with aftertastes of raisins. Excellent beer.

Dorqui (2081) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 20, 2005
(Draught - St. Sixtus Rouge 6,5%) Dense and creamy foam, good persistence. Alcoholic and sweetish scent, light flowery notes. Medium smooth taste, not particularly prickly. Modest bitter and prevailing rumor of caramel.
