UPDATED: JUL 21, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a murky medium brown with an average sized (1-2 Finger) fizzy white head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma was of a toasted cookie malt, light herbal hops and a moldy yeast with notes of dark fruit (prunes and raisons) and caramel. It tasted bitter-sweet and a tad sour with a hint of caramel at first and finished about the same but with a strong note of dried fruit towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow and had a nice fruity aftertaste that lingered a bit longer. Mouthfeel was medium in body and oily in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall a superb tasting Abbey Ale with a great drinkability, which did a great job of hiding the high ABV...

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
