3fourths (8881) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2007
Sweet in the nose, sweet flavor. Burnt toast and some light spicy yeast, some maple and even bacon scent, some brown sugar dough, that’s the heaviest scent. Doughy, chewy and thin but not watery at all, more like doughy, I keep coming back to that word, but for this beer it’s probably the best deScriptor.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 Bottle: drinking it as a toast with my brother and father for our Independence day, well its a really nice beer, light-medium bodied. quite malty, fruity, yeasty, some honey, some molasess, dried fruits, spicy and nice bitterness. CHEERS!

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - APR 22, 2007
11.2 oz bottle, best by date marked 07 12 06. Geez, I hope its not stale... lol. Hazy brown with a dense off white head. Sweet, vinous nose, malty, plummy and light molasses. Flavor is full of dark fruits and molasses, sweetly malty. Medium to light body, beautiful sheet of tight lace. Alcohol is well hidden, but a light burn in the gullet hints at the 8%. A bit of bread and spice pops up in the finish. Excellent.

jake65 (3125) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 22, 2007
Bottle: Pours a cloudy brown, on the lighter side, with a large beige head. Nose is fruity, yeast, and malt. Taste is fruity up front with a deeper malt body. Some hints of spices and a rum-raison character. Overall a sweeter taste and lingering, warm finish. Very good.

scanovajr (663) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 22, 2007
Bottled bought at the Bier Temple, Brussels. Pours redish brown with a nice lacing head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Taste is also fruity and malty. Very nice balance between bitterness and alcohol. Notes of caramel and some licorice

bdjames29 (273) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2007
Bottle. Very nice, but I would have expected nothing less. Great beer just to look at - slightly murky brown with red highlights, larger than usual off-white head that lasts and laces, floating filament is apparent when held to the light. Sweet and malty but delicately balanced. A quality brew. Anything from st. Bernardus should be tried.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 13, 2007
Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a small, airy beige head. Strong, complex aroma of brown sugar, sweet fruits, dark malts, a teeny bit of alcohol. Nice. Smooth, rich fruity taste. Sweet and chewy. This brewery rocks. I like the 12 better but this is stunning as well.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 12, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2007 Massive off white head - the aroma is very sweet - smell fruit, plums, raisons, etc. very nice and pleasant. Dark brown color with a lot of movement. Has a rather salty like finish to me, pretty sour..not really as expected. Definately give a big nod to the 12.

BelgianBeerGal (3581) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2007
33cL bottle. Poured a clear, dark brown with an off-white head. Sweet aroma of molassas. Smooth taste and similar to Westy 8 but slightly less complex. It hid its alcohol well too. Recommend trying this beer.
