OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2007
33 cl bottle, best before 27/04/10, courtesy radiomgb. Beautiful mahogany amber colour with a mostly lasting frothy and creamy off-white head. Raisin, cherry, plum, chocolate, more dark fruit, and light apple aroma with alcohol notes. Rich flavour of raisin, plum, fig, and other dark fruit lightly dipped in chocolate and perhaps a touch of rum and port. Full bodied, rich mouthfeel with lively carbonation and just warming enough to convince you to take your time and savour every sip. Wasnít expecting all that much after trying the 6, this one just kept improving with every sniff and taste.

Pours like rootbeer nice foamy tan head that remains about a quarter inch. Aroma of yeast and fruit. Tastes a little fizzy, touch of malt, spice, honey, balanced with a nice finish.

tomer (2409) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - FEB 27, 2007
0.75l bottle. nice cloudy brown appearance, spicy aroma of cinamon, clove and cardamon, finish very long and lingering. A bit like drinking panaforte (a spicy tuscan dried friut cake). Excellent with a seafood stir fry. Overall a great beer.

sampled at blind "Better Know a Style: Belgian Strong Ale" tasting 07. poured muddy brown, with a great big off-white head that lasted. nose was very nice, toasted nuts, molasses, yeasty, and plums. flavor was nicely balanced, toasty, cookie, cardamom, and plums. palate is a tad thin with alcohol in the finish.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2007
This beer pours a dark beige/brown color with a creamy tan head with large bubbles. I smelled dried fruit and carmel on the nose. This is a well balanced beer and I would strongly recommend this. After tasting this, I am excited to taste 12.

larsga (6893) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2011 Medium big-bubbled beige head. Deep red body with carbonation. Earthy linoleum and caramel aroma with spicy musty notes. Unusual. Sweet-dryish buttery caramel and licorice taste with cocos and spice notes. Fullish body. Mild, soft mouthfeel with slight slickness. Dryish spicy cinnamon and earth aftertaste with butterscotch and licorice notes. Recognizably St Bernardus. Really nice. (0.33l bottle, Bier Tempel, Brussels. Rated in 2007, rerate in 2011.)

JoeinDahlem (1396) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2007
Blackish beer with ruby highlights. Beige head, creamy and sticky. In the nose: dried fruit, Iíll go with raisins and apples. Malty flavor with some dried fruit, but itís smooth--not the same party you get with the 12. Mouthfeel more bubbly than creamy. Finish is mild and balanced among malt, bitterness and alcohol. A first-class beer, but kick it up to the 12 when youíre really in the mood to contemplate.

11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy ruddy orange-brown color. Produces a beautiful huge, fluffy and rocky tan head which maintains a 1/4" thickness throughout the glass. Quite intense and pleasant aromas of fresh baked wheat rolls, yeast, ripe pears/apples, caramel candies, toffee along with faint hints of buckwheat honey, spices, charred oak and alcohol. Palate is full and round combining a nice spritzy carbonation with an enjoyable chewy texture. Flavor profile seems a bit more reserved compared to the aroma, but still quite good. Notes of sweet Belgian crystal malts, light brown sugar, caramel, toffee, spices, fresh dark wheat bread and ripe light fruits are savored. Finish shows just a quick hit of hops and alcohol, but unfortunately tends to fade out fast leaning toward some thiness in the end. All in all a well done Belgain Dubble and would certainly visit this again.

Thanks to secret Santa for this one. 12oz bottle. Hazy, murky, chunky, caramel colored brew. The aroma is heavy with dates, raison bread and sweet malt. The flavor is similar with bread, dates, yeasty malt, light fruit and perhaps hints of sherry. Chewy body. A solid brew. Glad Iím having this one at my tasting next month.
