Another one of the "monk" beers that I haven’t seemed to gotten around to rate yet, so I figured it was high-time to step it up. Aroma was great with whiffs of dark fruit, very earthy almost like wet dirt, woody, and malty. Appearance is really deep brown, almost soft drink like in color with a nice head. Mouthfeel was soft and creamy, alcohol hidden fairly well. Flavors were nice and complex. I was getting everything from apples, dirt, wood, malty and figs. Hell, there were tastes that I couldn’t begin to recall what they were. Overall, a nice experience and I’d get this again just to sip during a cold Winter’s night while watching football.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6372) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is somewhat faint but has sweet, yeasty and bready elements. The flavor is strong and very malty with ripe fruits - raisin and plum particularly and hints of chocolate, toffee and caramel. Wonderful!

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2008 creamy and delicious...little head on this one. Nice and chocolatey, like an understudy to the Rochefort, but still very enjoyable

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - NOV 9, 2006
This beer made me smile. Had a different Belgian just prior (no pun intended) that didn’t do the trick. This is much better. Dark pour with a tan head. Warm palate and flavors. Caramel, chocolate, malt. Tasty.

ogivlado (7033) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 6, 2006
Bottled(330ml). –So far the best St.Bernardus that I’ve tried. Dark brown almost black coloured, medium pale brown head, slight malty chocolate nose. Aroma is malty, spicy, caramel and cocoa with lots of fruit (raisins, plums and prunes). Nice fruity and slight alcoholic finish.

kopestes (164) - Braine l’Alleud, BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2006
0.33l bottle at home. It was a real pleasure to drink this beer. The most distinctive is smooth, creamy mouthful and than after few seconds pleasant warmth. Excellent beer.
