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.

3.1
fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2003
Hazy dark amber color; generous head. Some malt, caramel, liquorice nose. Same impression in the mouth, lacking a character and some more bitterness; a bit astringent in the beginning, sweeter when more oxydized. Not my favourite Dubbel.

Theydon_Bois (20435) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2016
Bottle at Cotts 2, from a stone flaggon, cheers to SHartshorne 05/03/16. Chestnut brown with a decent tan covering. Nose is light charr, toffee, dark fruit rinds. Taste comprises fruit cake, toffee, astringent bitterness, light yeast strokes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so.

3.6
saxo (19246) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2010
Bottle. Nice head with creamy head. Color is dark brown. Aroma and taste are fruits, licorice, malt, yeast and hops.

3.7
rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2005
Nice amber color with an offwhite head. Aroma from syrup, nutty, malty, figs, plaums, some vanilla and with creamy notes. Flavor is fruity and malty with figs and plums and also some smoky notes.

2.9
Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
Amber-burgundy colour. Aroma is light, with treacle notes and a slight peach fruitiness. The body is light, but offers a vibrant character. Toffee and light orange notes abound, but are drowned out by too much alcohol in the finish.

3.5
TBone (17987) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2005
Bottled (BB 06/2008)
Dark brown color, nice creamy tanned head. Strong metal and lemon in the nose same time with caramel and prunes. Medium-bodied - a bit empty, carbonated. Strange metallic flavor also. Otherwise quite enjoyable: fruity but dry with hints of licorice, late hoppyness and some fruits and roasted malts.

3.7
yngwie (17168) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2008
Bottle. An amber beer with some floaties, and a beige head leaving nice lacings. Caramel-sweet aroma with some spicyness, maybe lacking complexity, but quite nice. The flavor is sweet,with dried fruits, spices and bitterness. Effervescent, full-bodied beer, quite sticky in the mouth. A nice one. (080412)

3.9

MiP (15960) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2008
Ceramic bottle, 6.9%. Vinous flavour. Sweet and roasted. Clear dark brown colour. Slightly slimy mouthfeel.

3.5
bhensonb (15601) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 4, 2007
16 oz. ceramic bottle. Aromas of sweet dark fruits and caramel malt. Near opaque color, but brilliant ruby red using halogen. Beige head that frothed and laced. Medium bodied. Mild carbonation. Sweet berry and raisin flavors. As the sweetness leaves, a mild bitter arises. The finish begins sweet, but as the sugars rinse away, a mild bitter stays. Dark fruits come and go. Very drinkable brew.
