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.

ruigo (2615) - PORTUGAL - NOV 26, 2013
Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours an almost clear reddish brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is yeast, caramel and toffee, roasted and bread. Medium carbonation and medium to full creamy body. Flavour is bitter with a sweet lightly boring and dry end. Overall, not bad but nothing special.

MRMedellin (284) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - NOV 7, 2013
Interesting beer, when its poured In glass a dark brown beer is seen. This one in particular exhibits a small and persistent foam head. The aroma reveals some coffee, floral, citrus, raisin and vanilla notes. When its tasted a strong body can be felt, the flavor is strong and constant, leaving a nice final perception. Really good Dark Belgium Ale.

Swaroga (2165) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAY 23, 2013
50cl bottle. Dark brown with tanned , cheesy head. Nose : yeeast, toffee, roasted, burned caramel, cheese. Sip : creamy with good carbonation. Medium body. Sweet and full of burned caramel, toffee background. Dark fruits, dried ones like figs. The beer had a mellow finish, very moderate bitterness. Quite drinkable and enjoyable in mouth thanks to creamy body. Its the best St. Sebastiaan I tried for the moment.
