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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4248) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 24, 2016
St-Bernardus Prior 8% Served in a tulip it is a dark plum brown with a sense beige head and a bready Graham and rich fruity stone fruit aroma. Medium to full bodied with a dry finish. The taste is stone fruits (figs, plums, apricots), rich caramel, bread pudding with a dry woodsy finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nez sur des épices et le caramel. Bouche dans la même veine. Finale plutôt courte. Bonne bière mais moi manque de développement.

KoNrRiI (1095) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
0.33 bottle. A clear, dark brown color with a medium, off-white head. Aroma has a strong backbone of dark malts with additions of sugar, wood, fruits, and hints of coriander. Taste is sweet, malty, sugary - alright. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long, sweet, and represents a good combination of malty and yeasty characters. Overall the beer is simply good, nothing to it.
