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.

Dark brown with a thin head and some lacing. Easy entry with a mildly carbonated mouthfeel and a raisiny, vanilla finish.

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Saint Sebastian Dark Pours dark brown with a huge thick long lasting tan head. Aroma of caramel malts yeast, spices (cloves, nutmeg) and raisins. Flavor is subdued some when cold, but the body filled in as it warmed up. Super bubbly all the way. Flavor is reminiscent of a Belgian Dubbel. Dark fruits and malt with a very slight sour note on the finish.

Nice red color. More hops in the nose than I expected - slight spice to it. Not bad, pretty drinkable Belgian.

Aromas of caramel and raisins. Taste is sweet and full of caramel. Body is weak and watery. Meh.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
500ml ceramic swingtop bottle. Pours dark mahogany with a thin white quickly dissipating head with minimal lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel, yeast, brown sugar and subtle dark fruits. Not much hops. Taste is very sweet. Unfortunately this beer was not very exciting.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Sampled from bottle. Presented in an attractive ceramic bottle that I will likely use for homebrew! ours clear, dark mahogany with no head. Perhaps I got a bad bottle, dang it. Aroma is molassas, caramel and prunes along with sweet malt. Flavor is sweet and dominated by over-ripe fruit and special-b malt (raisin/caramel). Not complex at all for the style. Full-bodied and barely carbonated. This bottle must be jacked up, so I’ll have to try it again.

12many (277) - Alaska, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Bottle. Very dark brown with a good tan head. Aroma is nice with malty caramel dark fruit and some yeast. However the flavor is disappointing. Quite bland in fact. Some sweetness at first with some bitterness, but it is very muted and unimpressive. Not bad but definitely a little bland on the tongue. Rather smooth and easy to drink though. For a standard belgian ale this is okay.

Aroma is some red fruits, figs, alcohol and diacetyl. Taste is rather dry, again dark fruits and some wood. Finish is malty and fruity.
