   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 10/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 19/20
rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a chalice. The bottle has a best before date of 16 04 12. The back label also lists the abv at 8%. Appearance: It has a dark burgundy colored body with a light haze and some yeast floaters. This is capped by a light beige head of frothy light foam. From the pour it left some yeast sediment on top of the head which looks like a dusting of cinnamon. The head hangs on well, slowly fading as I drink and making some nice lacing on the glass. Smell: There are fruity and estery yeast notes of raisins and apple peel with a slight hint of spice and funk. This is all comes with a nice sweet bready maltiness as well. Taste/Palate: Wow, this one has good complexity with fruity and spicy yeast, sweet bready and nutty malts. I get notes of cocoa powder blending with notes of walnuts and hazel nuts like Nutella within the sweet bready maltiness. Fruity notes remind me of raisins and as it warms I get some cherry as well. Hops are light and help to balance with mild bitterness and dryness in the finish. The palate has a solid medium body with mild carbonation. Notes: This beer has wonderful complexity and drinkability.

Bottle. Hazy light brown colour, small tan head. Aroma of red fruits, caramel, dark fruits, prunes, yeast. Taste is light to medium sweet, light bitter and very light tart, of caramel, prunes, red fruits, dates, yeast, with red fruits in the finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Really good and quite complex dubbel.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2017 Bière rousse, limite rouge, avec une belle mousse ecrue. Au nez une odeur légèrement fumée, un nez de gâteau, de céréales torréfiées. Une belle carbonation, un goût assez doux, un peu claire, léger goût de fumé, de céréales. Bonne bière pas trop forte.

Po St. Bernardus myślałem, że już mnie nic nie zaskoczy. A tu proszę, "młodszy" czyt. słabszy brat, niesamowicie lekki w odbiorze, genialny w smaku. Obfita piana, dość długo utrzymująca się, rubinowa barwa. Klasa !

IOzh (194) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - SEP 22, 2017

Dark brown, a bit red. Aroma has some sweetness but not dominating. Plums raisons and nuts. Taste follows, more dry at the end. Very nice double!

PhillyCraft (7707) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2017
Backlog, bottles over the years. Pours an amber brown shade with a medium sized top and good lacing. Nose is dark fruit, belgian spice, malt, and molasses. Flavor a lot of same with some caramel, plums, cherry, and yeast. Medium bodied with similar carb

Beamer (111) - Malden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2017
Donker bier met een mooie schuimkraag die best lang blijft. Als je het bier proeft is het vrij smaakloos zurig en plat. De nasmaak is best heftig en houdt wel even aan. Zoet en een beetje bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

luttonm (6634) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Thick creamy head, a bit tan. Dark, roasty brown body. Thinner malt nose. Sip is a full nutty, slightly metallic and warm malty dubbel. Malty and fairly clean, a bit full and foamy. Light leather, some grape fruitiness, some brandy. Very nice.

jopp (23) - PARIS, FRANCE - AUG 20, 2017
ambrée, puissance raisonnable, le vieux sur l’étiquette est marrant. saint bernard est célébré le 22 janvier. c’est aussi une marque de chien des montagne

NordicV (2425) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2017
Brun, dimmig �l med ett ljusbrunt skum. Doft och smak �r l�tt kryddig, belgisk j�st, torkad frukt och viss n�tighet.
