COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The St. Sebastiaan Dark is a dark, medium to heavy high fermented abbey beer that tastes both sweet and bitter on the tongue. This St. Sebastiaan has a strong, sweet aroma of caramel and malt and gives you a full taste in the mouth. It is re-fermented on the jug and on the bottle by the brewery. The result is a nice, clear beer with a wonderful aroma and, for those who love it, a nice touch of yeast at the bottom of the bottle.

ghawener (1579) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - APR 22, 2005
Bottle: Black with a medium, dense, beige head. Aroma with some sweetness and burnt coffee plus dark chocolate. Taste is smoked with notes of bitter chocolate and coffee. Overall quite decent well balanced dark beer and it comes in a great ceramic bottle with flip top, too.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - APR 21, 2005
16 oz bottle from Mr. Liquor. Deep brown color with a very thick tan head that lasted the entire glass. Lacing also lasted. Aromas of alchol and carmel. Perhaps a slight cherry smell as well. Flavors were mostly espresso and milk. A bit of metallic aftertaste, but not bad.

Sammy (11642) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2005
very dark brown. Smell of toffee and roast and alcohol. A hint of sourness and dryness and sweetness, yet none of the above. Complex in every sip, yet simple and very drinkable. Very much liked.A surprise at Volo Cafe.

PeterA (342) - EL SALVADOR - APR 15, 2005
Rich, malty aroma. Dark brown appearance with decently thick beige head. Smokey mocha flavor. Sticky mouth feel, like theres a substantial amount of sugars hiding in there. An enjoyable beer.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Nice offering from St. Sebastian. Hints of roasted malt, chocolate, and a subtle yeast flavor make this a very refreshing brew.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2005
Another great sebaastian with a nice cola brown and a reddish offwhite head. Light a heated honeycomb with a touch of malt and chocolate. Strong on the sediment unlike the grand cru. Very good.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2005
Bottle. Dark chestnut reddish hue with light-tan bigbubbled head. Phenolic aroma. Flavor is dry with some chocolate and slight roast. Heavily carbonated and a bit thinbodied. As I poured the last glass, huge, sticky lumps of sediment came into the glass. I like my yeast, but not in these excessive, disgusting looking, quantities.

JorisPPattyn (9711) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 11, 2005
Thick greige head leaving fine lace; dark, red-brown beer. Very bready nose - and then theres (some) coffee. Dark malts in evidence. Coffee-ish taste, quite clean, ending more moccha-like, slightly sweetened. Bitterish more roasted malt than hops. Good balance, nevertheless. Very faint sourish in the finish. Rather light bodied, even a bit watery for a dark ale of 7%ABV. Rather dry. Reality or suggestion? I seem to like this better since its brewed at Moortgat. Good dark beer, rather original flavour profile.
