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.

defabant (35) - ITALY - DEC 17, 2017
Bottiglia da 33 cl. Versa una buona schiuma corposa che svanisce lentamente. Aroma non troppo intenso di caramello e alcol. Gusto ben bilanciato con note di caramello e frutta secca. Retrogusto un po' alcolico con l'amaro lievemente accennato. Un'ottima dubbel.

Turtles (3016) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2017
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Deep chestnut brown color. Lasting dense head, good lacing. Sweet caramel and dried fruit aroma, some spicy yeast, cloves, sawdust and red apples. Smooth mouthfeel on the dry side, close to full bodied, medium carbonation. Nutty taste, mild peppery, cloves, dried fruits, soap and grass. Long dry finish, mild warming with woody bitterness. Harmonious!

Chocolate with honey bread aroma, fruity, full but not a strong body. Sweet and smooth in the mouth. Pretty good choice for ladies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MpNormy (12) - Modena, ITALY - DEC 4, 2017
Bottle from beer shop. Classic belgian dubbel colour (brown to ruby) with small and pretty persistent head. Taste of caramel, plums, caramel with a good alchoolic punch at the end. As the temperature rises, some roastiness takes place. Very good and smooth dubbel.

tellsplatte () - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2017 Like most real Belgian beers (from Belgium), they tend to have a lot of gas (head). When I am at home, I pour out the beer on a small container then put it in the freezer until the head settles, then I pour the beer into a wide mouth glass. You don't want to flatten the beer by degassing it too much, but you also don't want to drink this (or any other Belgian) out of the bottle, because there just too much gas, and you'll be gassy all night long.

Jonb5 (573) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2017
330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip. A: Almost jet black, large tanned head which faded quickly without leaving much lacing. S: Yeast and molasses. T: Phenolic yeasty molasses, some raspberry. Started sweet, but seemed get slightly bitter. M: Thick texture, low carbonation, slight burn from the booze. O: Fairly standard Abbey Dubbel, nothing really stood out in a good or bad way.

Ámbar intenso casi translúcido y cabeza beige cremosa de corta retención que incluso pierde su densidad tras unos segundos. Aroma recuerda un delicioso machacado de membrillo y peras acarameladas con un tenue bouquet floral. En boca, expresa generosas maltas acompañadas de notas de peras y pasas. El amargor herbal está libre de astringencia y el cuerpo es sumamente sedoso. El final es seco y persistente.
