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.

Alcohol is the first smell so only light tones of plums, dates and syrup are recognicable. Amber, more reddish, little head. Warming alcohol taste, plums are the main taste. A bit thin but fullmouth. Nice stone bottle.

I bought this beer because of the bottle. Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a nicely cloudy, dark-brown with little head that quickly disappears. Aroma is sweet with walnuts, hazelnuts, molasses, and slight alcohol. Flavor is nutty, yeasty, and alcoholicy... not much else. Easily drinkable. Sampled at 73 degrees Fahrenheit.

Dark clear brown. Smells and drinks like an English brown. Vanilla, maple, wood, sweat socks in the aroma and flavor. Somewhat syrupy, and a little bitter. Chemicaly-woody finish.

Very sweet brew. Malty toffee in the aroma. A little thin texture. Smooth feeling. Nice delicious caramelly toffee and chocolate flavor. Too sweet in the end, though. Finishes with a strong filthy heavy feeling of malt and toffee.

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.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Sampled from bottle. Presented in an attractive ceramic bottle that I will likely use for homebrew! ours clear, dark mahogany with no head. Perhaps I got a bad bottle, dang it. Aroma is molassas, caramel and prunes along with sweet malt. Flavor is sweet and dominated by over-ripe fruit and special-b malt (raisin/caramel). Not complex at all for the style. Full-bodied and barely carbonated. This bottle must be jacked up, so Ill have to try it again.

Bottle. Caramelly sweetness, some vanilla aswell. Quite yeasty, and definitely on the sticky side. A touch of tart sourness towards the finish.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2006 The weak hiss of the cap coming off worries me. Pours a clear mahogany with little head. Earthy, meaty aroma with some char. Sour and metallic with a meat flavor. This one is off. Re-Rate. Got a better bottle. Looks good, creamy head. Sweet, prune aroma with some stale smells. Nice prune and raisen flavor with some vanilla tempered by oxidation and a fair amount of bitterness. Quite tart also.

The aroma has sugar, toasted malt, and yeast. The appearance is dark brown with a medium foamy head. The flavor is like the aroma with some spice. The palate is ok but a little thin. The aftertaste is bitter-sweet. Overall its ok.
