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.

Scipio (1276) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2018
Pours a brown or deep amber with a full, bubbly tan head. The aroma is has that Belgian feel, being slightly tart and consisting of heavy yeast, plum, raisin, caramel, and slight earthy notes. The taste retains the easy tartness. Its quite dry and is a little sweet. Yeast is powerful and caramel is pretty strong as well. Then there are the fruity flavors of plum, cherry, and raisin. Spice and alcohol complete the story. Quick caramel aftertaste. Medium bodied, sticky in texture, and with some extremely fizzy, bubbly carbonation. You can't go wrong with this one.
