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.

Medium Dark brown. Smooth and malty sweet with a bit of fruityness. Not as complex and robust as many belgians, but good in its own simple way.

Not much of a head on this one, maybe due to the swingtop bottle...dark brown, slightly hazy color. Light sugary, malty aroma with a bit of cinnamon and brown sugar. Pretty light-bodied. I might try this again to see if its a bit better with more carbonation.

Cloudy dark brown in color with a light cream colored head. Citrus and yeast aromas in the nose. Sweet toffee like flavor with some subtle fruit tones. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2002
This beer poured a very dark amber color and formed a nice very light tan bubbly head that subsided quickly and left some lace. The aroma was of malt and fruit, very sweet. The flavor was of malt, fruit and some spice. The body was a medium and the finish had elements of both the fruit and the spice. The alcohol was detectable, but not distracting.

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2005
This beer poors a dark amber to brown brew toped by a large off white head. ARoma is nice with hints of fruit and alcohol. The palate is average for a belgian but the flavor is nice with dried fruit, alcohol and a light woody note.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Ceramic bottle. Pours a medium brown, with a thinnidh head. Aroma is on the sweet side, with some dark fruits, yeast/dough and some malt. The flavor is slightly vinous, with a good dose of malts and some darker fruits. Nothing remarkable, but nothing negative. Very drinkable and the bottles rock!

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 16, 2008
Appearance: dark amber to dark mahogany color. Great head, lasting with beige color. Aroma: intensive in yeast smells and dark-malts. Liquory aromas; too raisins and banana reminiscences. Flavor: very yeasty and toast-malts taste. Caramel, sugar, wood, toffee, dark-raisins and, maybe, figs touches. Slight clove reminiscences. Light dry medicinal hoppy final. Palate: medium body. Medium to high carbonation. Beer with medium complexity taste.
