4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours with a creamy, lasting head. Color, like weak coffee. Unbelievable aromas, starting chilled from the fridge with nice fresh hops, and bready malt, warming and evolving to include, vanilla, some chocolate, fruits, mainly banana and cocoanut, also sour mash whiskey. Nice roasted malt flavor, less complex than the aroma, but nice - sweet, fruity, lightly bitter with come coffee and a noticeable alcohol presence. Really, really nice though not as luscious in the mouth as the Westy/Rocheforts these St Bernardus beers have been compared to.

Dark brown. Cloudy. Yeast bits at bottom. Tastes like a malty Duvel. High carb - slowly gushed from bottle. Dark fruit / pruney. Tasted better as it warmed up. Aroma was amazing when warmer too (obviously...).

Aroma frutado, notas de caramelo e cravo. Sabor levemente adocicado com toques amargos e algo de banana. Aparência caramelo escuro, sem nenhum resquício no paladar além da beleza dessa garrafa. No geral, sem palavras.

From a bottle. Medium to dark brown with a good beige head. Both aroma and taste combine spices, caramel and bananas.

Vrij warm in het paultje, veel en lang schuim, volle, lekkere smaak. Droppig, niet scherp maar zacht.

Beautiful pour into the glass with a nice color. Brown sugar, date and figs on the nose. Nice head w/excellent lacing on the glass. The lighter mouthfeel contradicts the heavier aromas but in a very pleasant way. Nice finish and an excellent beer.
