Emeister84 (1369) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Prominent fruity aromas of raisins, cherries, and apples, with some subtle chocolatey and nutty scents. The appearance of liquid ebony, with dark ruby highlights, and a decently retaining, khaki head foam. Sweet with some savory elements, caramel and molasses flavors, and some tartness as well. Full bodied with spicy, lively carbonation, and finishes with refreshing fruity and malty tones, and some presence of alcohol strength. Rich, smooth, spicy, and complex.

Marrone intenso, schiuma appena presente come un velo. Aroma di malto e dark fruits. All’assaggio è relativamente dolce, con malto, caramello, alcune spezie, chiude un po’ secca. Abbastanza alcolica, ha un corpo medio e una texture morbida.

Maris (1088) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 1/4/2015. Pours a cloudy brown, with a big off white head. The flavour features lots of dark fruit (plums, prunes, cherries), caramel, fruit cake, spice, yeast, and a gentle bitterness at the end. The palate in quite creamy and the carbonation lively. Pleasant enough drinking if a touch bland.

SilverfoX (546) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
smells a bit like sugary christmas cake, murky brown body with a ridiculous head, taste like brown sugar wash with some slight alcohol burn in the finish. and this is highly rated stuff?

Pours dark amber with a bubbly head that leaves a thin but creamy top with good retention. Aroma of cherry and other berries, yeast, dough and some raisin. Medium body, creamy feel, fizzy carbonation. Taste of caramel, sourdough, dark chocolate and sweet licorice. Long lasting and slightly bitter finish.

Alpha10 (390) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
2015/03/21 - Pours a cloudy dark brown/amber colour with a foamy, khaki head that quickly reduces. Aroma is yeast, dough, herbal hops, raisin, toffee and nutty notes. Taste is very yeasty, herbal hops, nutty notes, toffee and mild raisin. Sweetness is very subdued. Mouthfeel is medium with lively, biting carbonation and a dry, herbal finish. Not my favorite St. Bernardus beer as I expected it to be a little sweeter and malt forward, but it was still enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
