DrnkMcDermott (2865) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2007
33 cl bottle in tulip glass, "Best Before" 3-2-10 but dangit; I want it now! Deep mahogany pour with lots of sediment bits, slightly gray head. A light honey smell with a metallic twang. Taste is honey with bits of currants and plums to start. Very mellow throughout, with impressions of fresh black bread and Christmas pudding, then raisin cookies. Very warming, but no alcohol hotness. Were I more patient with this bottle, it might have smoothed out in a year or so. Dumping in the dregs at the end gives it some bite at the finish.

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

Ruby red with orange hues when held up to the light. 1 1/2 finger off white head that lingers for a while. Visible yeast sediment. Aroma is cherries, dates, candied sugar and belgian yeast. The taste follows the nose along with a rich caramel malty sweetness. Finishes bone dry. Very nice beer overall.

Dunkelrot bis braun mit beigem Schaum. Aromen: getrocknete Früchte, süßer Sherry. Geschmack: getrocknete Feigen, Rosinen, Kuchen, süßes Röstmalz. Im Abgang leicht bitter. Tolles Bier!
