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.

Yeasty aroma, I smell dough and cheese, but also sugar. Pours dark golden with a frothy head. Flavour is rich and quite sweet. The after taste tastes sugar. Medium bodied, average carbonation. The sweet flavour lingers. Nice beer.

It pours murky mahogany with copper highlights; the head is off white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: banana, bubblegum, and raisins. The taste is medium sweet and finishes medium bitter; there are notes of the aforementioned aroma compounds. The palate is medium bodied with light carbonation and a medium finish. Overall, it’s basically the same as the 6.

Gespuccian (75) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Opaque amber brown pour with a finger or two of creamy, lush head. Aroma of dried fruit, raisins. Taste is full - caramel malt, more dried fruit, dates. Has a slightly bitter hoppiness cooled by a candied sugar sweetness. Palate is full, creamy yet crisp, and absolutely delicious. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lively out the bottle, a deep dark mahogany with a tan lingering head. Smells of roasted treacle and malt. Has a thick oily texture which coats your mouth and lasts well. Taste of sweet malt and loveliness.
