radagast83 (7602) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Bottle. Pours a thick hazy brown color with a tan head. The beer has a very caramel and dark fruit aroma, heavy on the malts. The flavor is caramel, fruit, and something I just cant put my finger on. The alcohol is noticeable. This beer is one of the more complex that Ive had in recent months.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2007
33cl bottle - pours very hazy, dark brown with a big light tan head. Creamy. Aroma of lots of dark fruit, caramel, malts, lots of yeast, typical of this line of beers. Flavour is full of wheat and sweet fruit, including cherries and apple, caramel again, with a light sour tart quality in the finish. Fantastic.

Ansset13 (127) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - NOV 3, 2007
First impression it that like other St. Bernardus beers, this is very well crafted. While it is not as complex as the Abt 12, this is a special ale that stands on its own. The nose is dark fruit, sugar, with slight vinous accents. The flavor is rich complex, and slightly more refined than the nose, while at the same time keeps one wanting more. I will no doubt repeat this beer, and it maybe often, while supplies last.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - OCT 21, 2007
(on bottle, some 2 years old) Its weird to taste such a nice and complex beer, when words are so few. This is just a well made belgian beer. High on all levels, fruity like a day in the ochard in october, burning alcohol like the fireplace my wife lies before, colored red like our chestnut right there in the garden, earthy like my kids rubberboots. A great drink a sunday night in the fall.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours deep reddish honey brown with tremendous ivory head. The aroma is sweetish with light caramel and sugar, red apple, coconut, plum, and maybe even a hint of wine. The flavor is a little more mild than I expected, but is still quite good. Light caramel and raisin start, then some floral and fruity notes. It gets an interesting tart note toward the finish, and finishes with a slight dry woodiness over the mellow malt. Pretty good stuff.

bhensonb (14473) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Rich aroma of mildly dark fruits - plum and cherry, perhaps. Ripe hazy reddish amber color with a decent light beige head. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Flavor of caramel, plum, straw(?), coffee, citrus. The finish is lightly astringent, relatively dry, and mildly bitter. A soothing, ripe ale. Mouthsmackingly good.
