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.

DavidSvinth (372) - DENMARK - DEC 19, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2017 Rødbrun i glasset. Klassisk belgisk aroma, frugtig, gæret og malt. Smagen har god fylde og både sød og lidt bitter. Malten er tydelig.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2017 Ciemnorubinowe lekko zamglone piwo z niezłą pianą. Aromat klasyczny dla dubbla czekolada trochę owoców głównie wiśnie, rodzynki i karmel. W smaku gładkie, zaokrąglone, słodkawe dominuje czekolada plus owoce, rodzynki, pierniki i trochę kokosu. Super

defabant (56) - 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 (3087) - 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

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.
