twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 20, 2008
bottle. Pours a dark, opaque brown, big chunky off white head that sticks around throughout. Aromas of raisins, black currants, and a cloyingly sweet maltiness. Flavors blend very well... starts with a light touch of floral bitterness, heavy raisin and fig flavors, and some yeast notes. Very even on the palate, a decent amount of active carbonation, and a nice, smooth clean finish. Very good brew.

ubamartian (155) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark brown. light two finger tight foamy head. Aroma is of pizza dough with a bit of earthy dark fruits. The flavor is even better, dark fruits, spices, a bit of a bread flavor, caramel, and malt. Medium body, has a good smooth feel. Overall this is a very good beer. Not as heavy as many, and more balanced flavor.

Suttree (6235) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Muddy brown, thin beige head. aroma of red aples and molasses, mixed with a bit of rum. Flavor is molasses and fruit, like maybe figs or prunes. Surprisng amount of alcohol heat for 6.7% beer. Nice earthy, rough finish.

MrBunn (2770) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2008
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with some light pouring through and a two finger or so head that is fairly dense. Has aromas that are woody and nutty with a bit of bread dough, yeast and spice. Flavor is a little different, however, as it mixes dark fruit, sawdust, allspice and rye bread. Thought this would be much different, although this is pretty darn acceptable.

ILoveNewBeer (113) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 10, 2008
I would expect nothing less from St Bernardus. Taste of sweet fruit, caramel, malt. Mid to full bodied and yet easily drinkable.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2008 0.33l bottle, pale brown pour with tan head. Quite light for a "dark"; beer, fruity, sweet and caramel flavours, some malt, no alcohol. Very enjoyable and full of flavour.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2008
Bottle, Stirchley Wines and Spirits, Birmingham. Poured a hazy brown colour with a dissipating white head.. Some fruit, yeast and spice in the aroma. Flavour was sweetish and malty. Some dark fruit and spice in there somewhere. Carbonation was a bit on the heavy side. Nothing special on the whole and expected a lot more.
