Cloudy brown pour with a nice full head. A fruity and a little yeasty aroma. Malty and a little spicy flavor. I really enjoyed this.

Murky brown w/ tan lingering head. Nose has some heat to it, and thereís candi and yeast. The mouthfeel is velvety w/ bubbly tounge and warming linger and swallow. Finishes alot stronger than 8%. I gotta say I feel like fucking royalty drinking this amazing ale... or that could be this nice new Watou St. Bernardus glass, yeah baby. bottled

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - MAR 3, 2006
An interesting beer with an odd musky chocolaty/coffe aroma. Dried tart fruity earthiness with a strong dose of sweetness, almost raspberry jam flavor with a touch of wood. Is this beer Iím describing? My bottle showed signs of age, with dark flakes of sediment swirling around. Tight bubbles, light tan head with a strong bead. Good stuff.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2006
Very much a more-ish beer this one, and that can be a bit dangerous when your getting to this abv. Looks pretty damn good - opaque dark brown with a generous frothy head. Smells of muscatels and some licorice. The body is a little less than full, but itís sufficient enough to carry the fine flavours of this abbey ale. Bitter edge to the flavour, but it might just linger a little long without a perfect balance. Top notch.

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Thicky hazy brown with a descent sized creamy head. Aroma is sweet with a bready aroma too. Flavor is mostly sweet with a touch of alcohol in the background. A well balanced belgian strong ale. Many are too sweet and strong alcohol, but this one works well. Not too crazy for the style, but this works.

bmanning (142) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Pours a deep brown with red tint and a frothy tan head. Aroma is very fruity with fig, plum, apple, raisin, and pineapple. Also, there is a sweet bread aroma with molasses and nutmeg. Excellent flavor, there is this yeasty character that all St. Bernardus beers have that make them so delicous. Also plenty of fruits in the flavor and an great malty taste. Itís initially sweet with a citrus flavor, and ends slightly bitter with a lingering rich, slightly smoky flavor. Creamy texture and very good mouth feel, but slightly watery. Another great St. Bernardus beer.

ghorsche (48) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 20, 2006
On tap at Lucky Baldwinís Belgian Beer Festival 2006 in Pasadena. Dark, bloody amber with a large beige head. Excellent lacing. The nose is dry.. notes of chocolate(!), prune, and spices, with a vague soapy astringency (maybe the glass wasnít rinsed properly?). Big malts up front in the flavor, roasty and chocolate again w/molasses. Spices and dark fruits. Lightly bitter. Finish is brief and quite sweet. Highly drinkable but the palate is a weak point.. watery and too flat. I would definitely pick up this beer on tap again.

OldMrCrow (2177) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2006
From the bottle. Pours a beautiful deep brown with golden highlights, abundantly carbonated.

This is a perfectly nice beer, but itís not a world-beating Belgian strong.The aroma is brown bread baking, molassas, plums, and a sort of musty cellar sourness; the flavor comes through with a big taste of dark malt, slightly sweet, spicy, some nutmeg, belgian yeast, a curious hint parmasean cheese.
