On tap at the Public House in Brookline, MA. Wow. The Bernardus 12 is the standard by which all others are judged. Pours a big dark brown, white foam, and then the aroma hits you. Caramel, roasted malt, then burnt sugar. These are all present in undercurrents of the taste, as well as some molasses, dates, and currants. With a 10.5%ABV, the Bernardus 12 provides an SUV-size vehicle to carry all the flavors. The big ABV still doesn't have any of the burn.
Serving type: on-tap

Had this from a 22oz. bottle at Madame Janette's in Aruba.
WOW! what a find. Succulent dark and sticky fruits and yeasty spice explode from the goblet. It is a symphony of luscious malty sweets and warming alcohol goodness. Very promising.
One sip and I'm addicted to this beer for life! There are layers of fruits to pull apart; plum, green melon, figs, banana, dark cherries, and more. It's delightfully yeasty, with raw dough and all the accompanying spice. There's a nibble of artfully added hops toward the end. It's sweet and fruity while maintaining it's dignity.
The mouthfeel is medium big, with a very creamy, full texture. It's ever so gently carbonated and really feels like velvet in my mouth. I lick my goblet clean when I am finished, it's that good!
