COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

oh6gdx (25392) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 9, 2008
Bottled. Deep brown colour with mediumsized brown head. Leaves some slight lace. Aroma is hops, mild caramel malts, mild nectary sweetness and some yeast. Flavour is mild caramel malts, yeast and quite much wooden notes. Wellbalanced brew, that hides the 6.9% completely.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2003
Hazy dark amber color; generous head. Some malt, caramel, liquorice nose. Same impression in the mouth, lacking a character and some more bitterness; a bit astringent in the beginning, sweeter when more oxydized. Not my favourite Dubbel.

Leighton (18529) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2016
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention - 2016 edition. Cheers! Pours rich amber with a creamy, tan head. The aroma has notes of tangy fruits, bready malts. Medium sweet flavour with more bread, light toffee, mellow bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet on the finish, with some toasted sugars, sugary and tangy ripe dark fruits. Pretty OK.
