33cl. exp. 9/5/08 St. Bernardus Chalice Great malty aroma. with a great dry hop finish I was not expecting but loved!. Id like to try this in a 750ml bottle to get a bit of that cork aroma and flavor. Overall great brew although from what I remember from a couple months back not as good as Chimays dubbel. Id like to do a side by side!

Dark brown body with a large tan head, lasting, nice lacing. The aroma is banana, figs, pear and perfumey hops. The flavor is pear, some banana and peach, figs, golden raisins, candi sugar and herbal hops. Medium body, moderately dry, very soft texture. Excellent and very deserving of its stellar reputation.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Dark chestnut color, thin wispy head. Slightly bready yeast aroma, Belgian malts. Some light fruit aromas present and nicely compliment the yeast and malt aromas. Light palate, mildly carbonated. Mild sour notes in the taste, nice balance to the sweetness and malt, dry finish. Extremely pleasant to drink and has a subtle complexity to it.

(330 ml bottle (stamped "05/11/05") from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/portland/ target=blank>Downeast Beverage Co., cellared for 1 year after purchase) Nice elegant beer but I found flavor didnt quite live up to aroma...Pours very murky dark rusty reddish-brown. Two fingers of biege head recede to about 1/4". Aroma is really nice - brown sugar, red wine, yeast, bread, dough, malt, dark fruit - very inviting. Mouthfeel is medium-full, lots of light prickliness actually detracts I think. Dryish, esp. in finish. Flavor: I was expecting a big wallop that didnt really come. Red wine flavor with nice maltiness and yeastiness mixed in. Flavor was rather "thin" though in comparison to aroma.

300ml bottle. pours w/a white head (slightly tan tinted) and a pearl brown hue. the head is quite spongy and slowly residual. aromas of cloudy hops, bread-like fruit, and fresh malts. taste is all over the map; dry hops, wet hops, toasted, but not burnt malts, lemon-citrus blend fruits, and an overall smooth yet carbonated mouthfeel with a pleasant, well-balanced finish. also - notes of oak and slight, non-offensive bitterness. A beer to enjoy...the dubbels are a new love of mine.
