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.

thewolf (11931) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Bottle, from Citti, Flensburg. Pours a clear redish brown with a BIG beige bubbly head - filling up most of my tulip glass. Aroma has dark dried fruits, and a little toffee. Quite low in carbonation compared to the giant head. Flavour is surprisingly roasted with an undertone of raisins and plums. There is a definite dark bitterness to the end - perhaps a little chocolate even.

Scopey (11793) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2016
Bottle thanks to Shane at the 2016 Cotteridge Convention. It pours cloudy deep brown with a medium off-white head. The aroma is earthy, toasted brown bread, wood, leather, dull toffee and cardboard. The taste is bitter, earthy, wood, dark fruits, fruit cake, caramel and dull spice with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A bit chewy, but overall not bad.

Bov (11698) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 22, 2002
clear dark reddish colour, fine creamy head, nice lace, peachy and malty aroma, smooth, sweet and heavy, dry fruity finish - lacks of balance

madsberg (11283) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 4, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Unclear. Way too much head, even though you pour the beer gentle. Yeast, fruit (apple) and sirup in the aroma. Vague fruity, alcaholdense and malty flavour. Alcahol is too dominant for my likings. Very vague aftertaste. Alcahol is dominant again. Not a beer I'll drink again.

DSG (11279) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle shared at kerenmk’s place. Dark brown a big bubbly beige head. Malty aroma with a bit of fruity esters, a bit perfumy, yeasty spiciness, caramel, a bit of licorice and a bit of alcohol notes. Sweetish malty flavor with caramel, some fruitiness, light toastiness, a faint chocolate note, a bit of licorice and a drier finish, a bit bitter, slightly spicy and slightly alcoholic. Medium-bodied and over-carbonated. OK.
