Pours a murky brown with a sizeable white head. Non-descript fruity aroma. Flavor is dark malt, not quite as sweet as I expected ... mild, dry fruitness with yeast and a touch of wooden cask. Very little hop presence. Not bad overall.

Nice, but not quite as good as the other St. Bernardus brews. Fruity with just a hint of slightly funky yeast.

Poured Pater 6 into St. Bernard glass. Found a variety 4-pack with glass for only $15. Pours a plum colored purple with a two finger head. Excellent lacing. Im following this up after having the Prior 8. In comparison, I find this to have more fruit notes, like plum and raisin. Has a slightly bitter finish with a chocolate twinge. Everything I have tried from St. Bernard is top-shelf.

thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy copper with quite a big head. Complex fruity aromas. Yeasty and chocolate flavours, some fruit. Medium carbonation, but quite full-bodied. Nice.

DarkMagus (508) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 5, 2007
Huge, thick, bubbly tan head. Dark amber-brown color. Sweet, brown sugary, malty, fruity aroma with some hop presence and some light spiciness. Mouth-watering dark candi sugar and sweet malt flavors, with dried dark fruits (cherries, raisins, dates, figs), fresh apples, caramel, a hint of cocoa, and a hint of hops. Smooth, silky, velvety mouthfeel that dries up nicely in the finish. Really great stuff, well balanced and with a huge range of flavors. St. Bernard Brouwerij never disappoints.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2007
11.2oz bottle Enjoyed in my St. Bernardus, Watou glass. reddish brown color, white head. Smells like a Belgian Ale. Aroma of dried fruits. Tastes is very light and easy to drink. Flavors of crisp fresh tree fruits like apples or pears. Very odd due to the color. I expected more caramels or chocolate. Very balanced.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Poured from 11.2 oz bottle. Used Trappist glass. Very large head that lasted quite a while. Lots of bubbles, reminded me of a hard cider in appearance. Dark, reddish brown in color, but still could see through it. Very yeasty smelling. LOVED the smell. Tasted hints of fruit right away, apples, maybe? Caramel and chocolate detected. The finish has quite a kick to it, almost a spiciness, hot flavor left in mouth...Very good. Very fun to drink.

11.2 oz bottle. Poured a medium reddish brown color w/a moderate white head. Not as heavy as some of their other brews, lighter w/a floral aroma. Had some sweetness, spice, with a yeasty, doughy flavor. Maybe some traces of figs/raisins/dates. Had some effervesence to it, a little kick. Long. light, fruity finish.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2009 Pours a murky, brown color with deep garnet highlights; head is off-white, lasting, creamy, and somewhat full with tight Belgian lacing. Nose is fainter than the elders, but very complex; notes of fig, light banana, lots of apple, darker fruits, and some clove, brown sugar, and molasses in there. Flavor is fainter than expected; light chocolate, faint fig, light roast, and apple with some clove and Belgian estery yeast. Palate is lively, more than medium, and creamy but with an almost hot alcohol note. Finishes short and bittersweet with some spice and clove; not too appealing. Overall, not too bad, like a toned down version of the bigger brothers, but just lacking in all the boldness and richness of the others. The nose was appealing but the flavor left a void in the beer.
