DavefromChicago (201) - Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2003
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.

JonnyConga (51) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
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...). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fabioanselmo (161) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - APR 16, 2014
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.

Serapac (16) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 15, 2014
From a bottle. Medium to dark brown with a good beige head. Both aroma and taste combine spices, caramel and bananas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Mongo1965 (15) - Albertville, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2014
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.

Bomber to a snifter. Gift from the Newlyweds. Thanks Jana and Russell! Pours an attractive hazy brown with rapidly receding foamy white head. Notes of raisins, spice, toffee and fresh baked bread... A warm satisfying finish ... Tasty!
