Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. aroma is light toffee, dark fruit, lovely cake like maltiness. hint of clove spice as well. Flavour is dark fruit, banana ester, toffee, hints of vanilla and woody bitterness and light spice on the finish.

Une bière douce, fruitée et maltée : la St Bernardus prior 8. En bouche, elle apparait un peu piquante et révèle des parfums de torréfaction, de banane et de réglisse. Une légère amertume prolongée se fait sentir.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
pours a nice chestnut color with about an average foamy head. The head itself is rather dense just not very tall. Nicely carbonated. Foam fades but the carbonation always keeps a wispy ring floating on top. I get a rich malt aroma topped by candied sugar. Rich and malty tasting with candied sugar yeast and fruity essence, maybe candied plumes. Alcohol taste is bold and in your face. Luckily the ABV’s are at a more moderate level for this light weight. A medium to full bodied beer with a drier finish.

Pours a dark brown body with a thick head. Malty aroma and a rich, complex and very nice taste. Well hidden alcohol compared to the abt 12.

Sweet, malty Christmas cake on the nose. Well carbonated to give this an initially light feel followed by a toffee ice cream finish. A very good, fruity Belgium classic ale. Rated by BrewTom

Pours a deep chestnut. with one finger of lacing tan head. Aroma is dense with yeast, dark bread, stonefruit, and a bit of hop. Taste follows suit with a moderate to heavy sweetness. Spicy yeast, a full body, and soft carbonation. One great beer

Bottle at home. Slightly darker than Pater 6, just as lively and easily identifiable Belgian style. Nose improved. Major note is still malt and the taste is still bubbly and balanced. Very enjoyable.

chinchill (1700) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap at the Atlanta Yard House. A: clear dark amber with a good beige head. Aroma: loads of dark fruit aromas including dates and raisins. Slight boozy with some nice spicy and bready aspects to the lingering aftertaste. Flavor: Sweet up front turning bitter-sweet by the finish. Very fruity as is the aroma. Feel: medium body; proper carbonation.
