The St. Sebastiaan Dark is a dark, medium to heavy high fermented abbey beer that tastes both sweet and bitter on the tongue. This St. Sebastiaan has a strong, sweet aroma of caramel and malt and gives you a full taste in the mouth. It is re-fermented on the jug and on the bottle by the brewery. The result is a nice, clear beer with a wonderful aroma and, for those who love it, a nice touch of yeast at the bottom of the bottle.

very dark brown. Smell of toffee and roast and alcohol. A hint of sourness and dryness and sweetness, yet none of the above. Complex in every sip, yet simple and very drinkable. Very much liked.A surprise at Volo Cafe.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 15, 2005
Rich, malty aroma. Dark brown appearance with decently thick beige head. Smokey mocha flavor. Sticky mouth feel, like there’s a substantial amount of sugars hiding in there. An enjoyable beer.

Nice offering from St. Sebastian. Hints of roasted malt, chocolate, and a subtle yeast flavor make this a very refreshing brew.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2005
Another great sebaastian with a nice cola brown and a reddish offwhite head. Light a heated honeycomb with a touch of malt and chocolate. Strong on the sediment unlike the grand cru. Very good.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2005
Bottle. Dark chestnut reddish hue with light-tan bigbubbled head. Phenolic aroma. Flavor is dry with some chocolate and slight roast. Heavily carbonated and a bit thinbodied. As I poured the last glass, huge, sticky lumps of sediment came into the glass. I like my yeast, but not in these excessive, disgusting looking, quantities.

JorisPPattyn (9513) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 11, 2005
Thick greige head leaving fine lace; dark, red-brown beer. Very bready nose - and then there’s (some) coffee. Dark malts in evidence. Coffee-ish taste, quite clean, ending more moccha-like, slightly sweetened. Bitterish more roasted malt than hops. Good balance, nevertheless. Very faint sourish in the finish. Rather light bodied, even a bit watery for a dark ale of 7%ABV. Rather dry. Reality or suggestion? I seem to like this better since it’s brewed at Moortgat. Good dark beer, rather original flavour profile.

Central Market - Austin,Tx. - 16 oz crockery bottle with a clasp cork top pretty nifty - earns this a five in appearance along with the dark, copper murky pour with an off white but thin head. Aroma is sweet and delectable with some strong date and raisin notes. The flavor picks up where the aroma leaves off with some added chocolate notes to accent the dates and raisins - some baked brown bread makes its way in there as well. The palate is smooth and creamy- very smooth going down. An excellent Belgian.

chuma (5) - Essen, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2005 does not count
750’ glass bottle. Brewed 2001, BB 8/04. Nice brown colour, pours with a huge off-white head. Head melts down quickly. Low in CO˛. Light malty-fruity aroma. Lighter body than expected. Flavor is sweet with toffee, coca, chocolate and burned toast. Short dry finish with some alcoholic aftertaste. Seems too old already.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2005
Distinct tangerine and butterscotch in the aroma. Great tea colored beer with an eternal sponge head. Great bottle. Drier than I would have expected from the malty aroma. Caramel, toasted flavor. Medium-light bittering, muted cocoa at times. A little flat and a little thin. Medium toasty malt finish. Some alt-like qualities.
