Bottle. Chestnut color, hazy liquid, white head. Aroma is malty, oak, liquor, but also a bit of yeasts and grass. Medium bitter. Good.

Cool_Bond (2565) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2017
The aroma of the farmhouse, yeast and hay. The taste is quite similar. OK bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. No good beer. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

mviljamaa (91) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Pours with good foam that stays for a while. Color is of dark brown mead. Aroma is filling with bread and yeast, nuts and seeds, olive oil, salt, pizza, soy sauce. Aroma is clearly more salty than sweet. Palate is very well balanced and the carbonation is nice. Taste follows the sensations of aromas in the sense that this is a more salty than sweet beer and that the taste has roasted bread, some malted grains, wheat flour, some pizza aromas. An okay beer, but not a personal favorite from the St. Bernardus range.

baralgin (26) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 24, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2017 Bottle 0,33L. Poured well chilled into a 0,25 beer glass. Dark buckwheat honey color. Thin threads of bubbles, medium carbonation. The head is brown. The aroma is subdued and delicate: malt, bread and soy sauce. The taste is of brown sugar, malt and coffee. Rather full body. Heaty and filling. Love it and will buy again. USD2.44

Speko (353) - DENMARK - FEB 23, 2017
Bottle 0,33. Pours chestnut with medium off-white foamy head, nice lacing. Aroma yeast, malts, toffee, brown sugar, dried fruits. Taste follows the aroma, somewhat sweet with brown sugar and raisins in the aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation.

rodsquad (174) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle as gift. Pours deep brown with a foamy beige head. Aromas of Cola Cubes, toffee malt and a gentle orange sherbet. Flavours of warm, spicy stewed apples and a light orange and lemon zest. Surprising light, sparkly body. This looked heavy but was beautifully light and sweet with real zesty refreshment. A seriously nice beer.

Braudog (6579) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle. Another icon that Im surprised to find Ive never recorded notes on this. As advertised, it is indeed chestnut colored, and emblematic of the style. Rich and sugary, tightly weaved, nutty, and sweet. My "score" may seem a bit low just because Im not a huge fan of the style. (#6508, 2/17/2017)

john44 (2986) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle. Reddish-Brown in colour. Fruity (dried fruits and berries). Malty (caramel, toffee, candy sugar, chocolate). Spicy & Yeasty (some floaties & sediment). Sweetish with bitter hoppy edge. Nice. (2008)

Bush_Docta (228) - - FEB 17, 2017
Pours with a big, thick head but dissipates to a ring quickly; copper-brown colour. The aroma is Belgian yeast and brown sugar. The taste is breadiness, caramel and dark fruits with a spicy, dry finish. Light-medium body, rather fizzy in the mouthfeel. A solid dubbel but expected more.
