winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAY 21, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Poured a slighthly hazy deep red with a full and lasting tan head and good lacing. Aroma is very strong and consists of candied fruits and caramel topped nuts. Flavour starts out very sweet and malty with a good dose of fruits and again a slight nuttiness. the nut character is reminiscent of sherry. It has a watery complexion but plenty of residual sweetness to give a sense of fullness.

BrianO (138) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Aroma of malt, biscuit, and other cant really pinpoint belgium yeast charactistics. Reddish-brown with off white head. Slightly cloudy with yeasties floating around in there but to be expected. Kinda like the little brother to the Bernaruds 12. Good malt flavor with hints of bread and maybe even a touch of chocolate b/c I was looking for it. Medium to full bodies with a tad too much carbonation for my taste but with the approriate range. Getting better as it warms. Pretty dam tasty...

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2006
11.2 oz bottle. 04 08 10 (?). Dark brown with ruby edges. Dense tan-white head with spots of powdery dregs; coats til the end. Walls of lacing. Yeast, cocoa, woody alcohol and subtle cherry. Alcohol very prominent at first but silky mouth smooths it out. Sort of a smoky melon that sours into dry wild mushrooms. Good; different.

Another great beer from St. Bernardus. Brownish colour with a light brown moslty lasting head. Lots of aroma and flavour. Highly recommendable.

Bottle, at Benny. Dark brown with a light brown head, good lacings. Aroma moderate/heavy malty (brown sugar, raisin, plum) and hoppy. Flavor moderate/heavy sweet and bitter, in good balance. Medium/full body, syrupy, soft carbonated. Moderate in alcohol.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2006 Wow, so the second time I had this beer was even better; guess my taste is evolving. Lots of fruit smell with a very similar taste. Spices are ever present as well.

californiapete (9) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 28, 2006 does not count
Begins with a very strong and pleasant aroma, sweet and alcoholic with raisin notes dominating and, upon further reflection, a hint of lemon (?) tartness. While appropriately dark for a dubbel, Im just not that into the coca-cola brown yielded by dark candi sugar--as opposed to the roasted malts of a porter or stout. Moreover, unlike the thick contrasting color that can make a dark pint of Guiness so attractive, the head was very thin, although persistent. The strong aroma and dark color leads one to expect a full-bodied, malty sweet meal in a glass. But this beer is instead very dry and subdued on the palate--too subdued for my taste. Still, a very clean and balanced beer that, in true Belgian style, is extremely drinkable despite its powerful punch.

SHIG (4936) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 26, 2006
Dark brown with a froathy creamy head. Floral aroma with a sourish tint. Very rich malt fruit flavor which leaves a nice smooth after taste.

jcr (2647) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2006
Dark brown pour with thin, but appealing head that sticks around. This is an aromatic, flavorful beer. The nose is spicy with notes of clove and pepper. The flavor is filled with sweet fruits and notes of clove. Medium to full body and moderately long finish. Overall, a very enjoyable strong ale.

dkoonce (911) - Peoples Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2006
Pours dark and fizzy, looks like a cola at first. Hazy with visible suspended (protein?) flakes. The aroma is clearly malt. The flavor is sweet abd malty with a thick heavy body.
