COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Bernardus Prior 8 is a traditional Abbey Ale brewed in the classic "Dubbel" style of Belgium’s Best Abbey Ales. It has a ruby to purple color, smooth, creamy richness of texture that is almost oily, and a malt-fruit complexity reminiscent of coconut. It finds the perfect balance between sweet, bitter and malty tastes. One of the original recipes from the days of license-brewing for the Trappist monks of Westvleteren.

ComradeK (1279) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2018 Draught at Bitter Phew, Darlinghurst. Pours a deep ruby, verging on black, with a large light tan head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Baking spice, stewed fruits, port and whiskey hints make up the aroma. Light spice hops up front give way to nutty malt and dark fruits in the mid-palate. Dry at the finish, with a lingering sweet spice aftertaste. Very good.

Marstonlad (1013) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2018 Bottle at Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours dark brown with a medium-sized frothy head. The aroma features caramel maltiness, ripe dark fruitiness and a touch of spiciness. Taste is medium sweet, later drying a bit. Caramel, bread and dark fruitiness feature; a long malty finish. Yeasty, in a Belgian way, and a solid sweet malt base. The palate is medium to full bodied, smooth and average in carbonation. Warming, not alcoholic. Classy dubbel.
