This brew poured to a huge creamy head,bigger than Donald Trump’s.I was finally left with a hazy ruby brew busy with carbonation.Unfortunately,there was little to speak about as far as taste and aroma so this beer will need to be revisited.Unusual for a St.Bernardus.

The quality of the beer is immediately apparent in the reddish brown insanely carbonated body, and the towering tan head. The aroma is complex, with chocolate, honey, and musk on the nose. The taste has a warm and spicy alcohol bite, with a banana nut bread taste, and some dusty yeast lurking in the back. The mouthfeel is creamy and a bit on the light side. This is technically a Dubbel, but comes in Tripel strength of 8% ABV. A welcome newcomer to Georgia shelves.

Smells like buttered bread. Well, not exatly, but maybe in liquid form. But its a dark brown hiding under a good vat of cream. Taste is a bit of caramel and banana. Hmmm... Maybe It’s liquid banana bread. Regardless, its very smooth except for a slight ending bitterness which comes with a ending sweet feel on the lips.

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2004
Bottle: Poured a quite opaque brown beer with a great head with good retention. Aroma is bit weaker then expected with some roasted malts and some light plums. Taste is also a mix between roasted malts, a bit of candi sugar and some light plums. Overall, this is a good beer lacking a bit of complexity and overshadowed by better products from this brewery.

There are beers using fish bones to clarify, and I hope I did not hit it here or at anytime! Complex carbonated taste includes orange and other fruit and yeastiness. Strangely reddish colour. Thanks IP Freely Overrated

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Brown with lighter amber tones and a large, nicely sculpted off white head which quickly produces some nice lacing. There is a strong aroma of dried fruit and it seems very light and sweet. Raisin and possibly cherry are present. The taste is initially sweet with the dry fruits like raisin and plum making a visit. It’s nicely smooth and as it warms up the smell, feel, and taste of alcohol is noticable. It finishes nicely, with a medium body.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 19, 2004
Large, rocky head and decent lacing; huge yeasty, citrus, banana, and tropical fruit aroma; notes of raison, date, and plum in the flavor; spicy rum finish; thick, oily palate; pretty complex and quite wonderful.

andershn (90) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2004
33 cL bottle. Hazy, dark reddish brown colour, with a thick, dense and stable head with a reddish tint. Fresh aroma with strong notes of banana and weaker notes of malt. Initially good balance in the flavour between sweetness (dark, dried fruits) and alcohol with a hoppy, bitter aftertaste. However, as the beer warmed up the sweetness became too dominant. A good beer.
