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.

Pours almsot black with very slight head. Lots of inital carbonation. Aroma was pretty good. Malts and spice. Flavor was very bland and flat tasting. Sort of tasted like it came out of a can. The Monks dropped the ball on this one

I decided to pour this into a goblet to open it up. Once poured the head disapated almost intently, leaving a small 1/8 inch layer of beautiful head. The beer is a dark rubyish color, or as I call it, mahogany. The aroma from the glass is of toffee and caramel. The flavor of this Dubbel is strong at first, and then it mellows into its greatness. There is a very light amount of lacing with this beer as well. This Dubble is really nice especially when comparing it to several others that I have tried. After a few sips, my mouth feels clean, as if I had just drank water...this is not a bad thing, as the flavor of the beer is still lingering.

Shared this beautiful ceramic 16 oz bottle with my bro, buckeyebeerman. Thanx. Pours brown with light highlights and minimal beige head. Smells of softly fermented fruit, vitamins, and caramel. Tastes of plums, sugar, sweet malt. Dry but sweet aftertaste. Slight metallic finish. A little undercarbonated. Overall, I’d love to drink this again.

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.

Bottle thanks to Woodsman52. Pours a dark brown caramel color with a fizzy white head. Flavor is somewhat bland, but you can pick up on caramel and malt. Has a nice mouthfeel with well balanced carbonation. Crisp clean finish.

2.9
MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2009
Bottle (750ml) Cellared for 1 year. Poured dark brown with a good sized, dense, frothy, lightly tanned head which lasted well. Aroma was of raisin bread with blackcurrant juice, muscatels, blackberries, cinnamon, pepper and some chocolate. Flavor was an extremely light bitterness with bready malts, over ripe plums, dates, sultana’s, cherry chocolates, cinnamon and allspice. Alcohol content was well masked. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation, a medium texture and an average length finish
