This noble delicious beer with a high fermentation has a ruby purple colour with a full malty and fruity taste. This beer has a beautiful round froth due to the second fermentation with a taste that creates a perfect balance between sweet and sour.

    Pours a large frothy beige head and has a murky brownish appearance. Fairly weak lacing. Aromas of raisins, yeast, malts. Flavours are mostly dry type fruits (raisins, plums, etc...) Has some yeasty notes, toasty and caramel malts and a bit sweet malts as well. Average carbonation. Full bodied mouthfeel. Tingling and slick sensation. Really good beer.

    Pours out extremely dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is deep and rich of malt. The mouthfeel is nice and thick. The taste is sweet malt, figs and of some kind of fruit not sure I guess figs.

    So we're up in The Bar(n) after dinner with PfoxyJohn and he says, "Pick some good ones out of the cooler for us." I did. This was one of those "picks". Cloudy brownish pour, fluffy head, some lacing. Big yeasties right away, then plenty-o-malts, spicy, lightly floral, FRUITY and just plain stupendous. This was an old bottle. Musty-looking, torn label, vintage. John may know how old it was but it aged very well my friend. Epic.

    Dark yellow, ligh brown with thick foam head lacing to glass. Drank this at one of beer tasting evenings. Good addittion. Good Belgium beer. Aroma is bit sweet, but taste is not. (Utrecht 201203)

    Pours a copper-color with a great thick white head with great lacing. The aroma is grainy with dark fruits and some orange scents mixed in along with some caramel, toffee, toasted bread. The taste is sweet caramel malt, with a slight alcohol taste that lasts through the finish. The mouthfeel is heavy bodied, sticky yet smooth from the carbonation.

    I tried this beer on December 16, 2011 at "Bar Volo" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer pours a medium reddish brown with a thin tan coloured cap. The aroma consists of yeast, dark sugars, malt, and plums. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is sweet malt, fruit, sugar, grains, butterscotch, and yeast. Nothing like a good Belgian yeast.

    From Lafayette Gourmet (Paris). Poured a dark brown, so dark and so cloudy under a creamy ivory head. Lotsa sediment here. Aroma was dark fruits and yeast, so was the taste. Sweet, smooth mouthfeel and finish. Pretty damned delicious.

    A typical strong Belgian ale (the bottle refers to it as a dubbel) with all the hallmarks of Belgium....dark fruit, yeast, and malt. Not as sweet as the 12 but still complex flavours of roasted malt and yeast.

    Yummy velvety goodness. I want to stick my dick in it. I want it to stick it's dick in me. The head on this stuff is massive. 4 fingers? 5 fingers? Whole fist? But I digress. Now for the good part. This beer has an intoxicating aroma of fruitcake and ginger bread. Pours the most exqusite mahogany color that I've ever seen. Bubles constantly erupt fom the bottom of the glass. Where's that goopy crud that I keep reading about? You must of got an old bottle sukka! Mouthfeel is velvety and the taste is of smooth butter, brown sugar and alcohol. I taste cake. Yup. I said it. There's cake in here. The finish is warm and soothing. This is like a spiced bock beer, but so much better. Cost a lot but it's worth it. Drink this one in the winter and you'll thank me. If i had to choose one word, it would be "magnificent."

    dark fruit, yeasty character abounds, but i found the flavor to be lacking in comparison to the aroma. pretty highly carbonated like all the St B brews. nice offering, but not quite a standout.
