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.

C5Drvr (18) - Tinton Falls, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Pour was a bit disappointing, not a lot of head and it decayed quite quickly to a thin film, and in its defence it did have a descent lace. A nice apple aroma with a hint of spice. Taste is dominated by caramel and malt, slightest touch of hops (tails off quite quickly) with very little change to the finish. It taps the front of the tounge and the top of the mouth until the aftertaste which is primarly the back of the mouth.

Bottle. Aroma is a nice fruit (apple) scent. Color is deep amber. Very smooth caramel flavor with a touch of hops. Very smooth mouthfeel. I really like this one. It is worth the price just for the cool ceramic bottle!

IslandHaole (1250) - Misawa, JAPAN - MAY 1, 2004
A medium brown with orange tons and loads of particulates floating in it. A lumpy tan head. A sweet dessert smell, like rum poured over a rich spice cake. Taste is oak, candi sugar and alcohol.

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2004
Large, fluffy, dense tan head that lingers for some time. Mirky reddish brown in color. Malty somewhat alcoholic aroma. Despite the large head, not overcarbonated. Moderated to full bodied flavor. Flavor is malty, fruity, bitter and yeasty Finishes bitter and somewhat caramel and chocolaty. This is a good belgian ale. It lacks some richness and complexity, but has a very clean finish for the complexity it does have.

madsberg (11655) - Sborg, DENMARK - APR 4, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Unclear. Way too much head, even though you pour the beer gentle. Yeast, fruit (apple) and sirup in the aroma. Vague fruity, alcaholdense and malty flavour. Alcahol is too dominant for my likings. Very vague aftertaste. Alcahol is dominant again. Not a beer I'll drink again.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Pours a light brown color with a big frothy head, that is lightly tan. The smell is big and malty, with lots of caramel and toffee in the flavor, slightly smoked and sweet at times, the flavor is kind of unbalanced and watery. The mouthfeel is thin with little to no aftertaste.

JagerQueen (123) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Pours a clean brown with a light beige foam. Smells full of caramel and smoke...tastes similar to the smell only slightly watered down. Almost no aftertaste and no real thickness to it at all. A bit bland, but its sweetness tastes fairly good.
