Draught: Deep dark mahogany almost black, medium white head that stayed throughout. Poured in a trappist glass, Pretty crazy flavor I can’t put a name on, I could taste some fruit, some nutyy flavor slightly sweet. It tasted ok, not my style.

Big thanks to HYDE for hooking this up for me! Deep brown body, topped with a fluffy beige cloud. Molasses, prunes, spices, and malt all fill the nose. Sweet and spicy. Lots of huge and heavy malt flavours, accompanied with molasses, honey, brown sugar, and spices. Warming alcohol. Very smooth muothfeel. Thanks derek!

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2005
Turbid deep orange and brown, thick lightly tanned head. Rich and complex nose of plum, musty caramel, rum raisin, and pineapple, with very soft toasted coconut notes emerging at room temp. Similar flavor notes throughout, rich, malty, but some light hop bitterness late provides good balance. Medium bodied, yet a bit thin, fizzy carbonation, lightly bittersweet, malty finish. Really nice and certainly worth a try....

Bottle. Poured tinted brown, with a nice head that lasted the whole time. The aroma was sweet and got stronger over time. The flavor was beautiful and got nicer over time. Great beer, I’ll be having more of this.

Radek Kliber (6937) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 11, 2005
Pours hazy amber brown ale, large foamy, creamy head on top. Aroma consists of largely sweet notes with hints of spice and light hop character .Smooth body, very clean. Very nicely made ale that hides alcohol so well. Gentle sweetness grows out so gently towards the alcohol that they blend so well. Unfiltered body just adds another pleasure to my palate. Another well made Belgian ale .

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2005
Tasted in Toronto, obtained from the LCBO. Tasted in trappist glass. Pours lighter than 12, slightly reddish hue, same thin tan coloured head. Aroma of shotbread, biscuits, deep fig and nutmeg. Flavour is slightly more balanced than 12, less sweet, larger malt and yeast component, very rich, slight ending tanginess. Oh my.....

Prior 8 has an aroma of dark fruit with a background of alcohol. The beer poured a dark murky brown. Head retention maintained through to the finish and was a light tan. There was some lacing. The flavor was malty with a dry fruit, somewhat plumlike, finish.

Wolfenstein (96) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Corked bottle: Poured a cloudy mohagony with an ample head. Taste is aggressive and carbonated with touches of grapes, alcohol, and molasses. Dry finish. Real clean. Loved it

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2005
Dark brown with a perfectly-formed, creamy head. Aroma was yeast and caramel, the taste truly delectable: sweet, plummy, spicy, vinous, alcoholic. Pleasantly dry. Nearly, but not quite, as good as the 12.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Poured solid brown with a good amount of carbonation. I could easily make out fruit, nut, and caramel flavors, as well as a potent maltiness. Not overly sweet,though. Very satisfying and drinkable; the best Bernardus I’ve tried so far.
