look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into a St Bernardus Chalice, served at cellar temp (~59f).
Intriguing tawny ruby like a fine a fine sherry with a 1 finger tan head that leaves decent lacing.
Aroma of Sugar, molasses and noble hops.
Mouthfeel: silky, smooth and layered. Top notch.
Taste: broad maltiness supported by a slight pruny fruitiness and a kiss of savory hops.
Notes: My 3rd St Bernardus so far and it is a runaway winner. The beer seems supremely well made and is great for as much as what it doesn't have as it does; no cloying sweetness, no wallop of Belgian yeast, no overpowering sourness, just a damn fine beer.

Pater 6 pours a cloudy amber color with no head. There is a very dry and very sweet aroma, with some dry grape almost wine like notes. The taste is dry and very very sweet, with some grape notes, and has a wine like flavor. The flavors are good and strong, but very flat feel. Overall its nice, but very very sweet, and too sweet for me.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Bottle dated 14 03 16 at 50 degrees into snifter
Aroma of fresh bread which gives away to a heavy malt odor
Head average (4.5 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing to 4 mm ring with center island
Lacing poor – a few irregular islands which slide back down to the ring.
Body dark brown, hazy from yeast from the pour
Flavor starts with heavy brown sugar and over-ripe date sweetness which slowly fades to an unpleasant sourness
Palate full, syrupy, lively carbonation
This tasted pretty decadent until the terminal sourness rolled in. After that, it was a literal bad taste in the mouth.
