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.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2009
Bottle (750ml) Cellared for 1 year. Poured dark brown with a good sized, dense, frothy, lightly tanned head which lasted well. Aroma was of raisin bread with blackcurrant juice, muscatels, blackberries, cinnamon, pepper and some chocolate. Flavor was an extremely light bitterness with bready malts, over ripe plums, dates, sultana’s, cherry chocolates, cinnamon and allspice. Alcohol content was well masked. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation, a medium texture and an average length finish

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2004
Large, fluffy, dense tan head that lingers for some time. Mirky reddish brown in color. Malty somewhat alcoholic aroma. Despite the large head, not overcarbonated. Moderated to full bodied flavor. Flavor is malty, fruity, bitter and yeasty Finishes bitter and somewhat caramel and chocolaty. This is a good belgian ale. It lacks some richness and complexity, but has a very clean finish for the complexity it does have.

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2005
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.

DarkMagus (501) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 26, 2007
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.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2002
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.
