Drank from my St Bernardus Chalice

A - Pours a deep Mahogany colour with a two fingered off white head that reatins well and laces the glass.

S - Plenty of fig, burnt sugar, dark fruit malts. Big aromas

T - Up front some nice chocolatey malts, unlike the aroma. Bits of aniseed, caramel and stewed cherries complement the exquisite flavour. The finish is long and a tiny bit warming.

M - Medium to full body with full carbonation.

O - This beer is exquisite full stop, and is the only dark version of this style that I know of. The benchmark it sets and difficult to beat.

A

750ml rested a year into a tulip. Pours a deep walnut cola, dark garnet when back lit, dense tan head, nice lacing.

The aroma is delicious. Heavy with dark fruits that have softened, a crate would have an ooze escaping the bottom. Significant grape bubblegum, chocolate and vanilla. A classic dense heavy bsda. wonderful

Flavor is strong, intense, exactly what the nose promised. Dark fruits now with a bitter sweet. Long lasting dark chocolate minor bitter aftertaste, lingers leisurely. A phenolic overtone stays in the background. Vanilla dark cherries. The alcohol, while obvious, compliments as a flavor ingredient. While the mouthfeel is lively it doesn't seem to be atypically carbonated.
warms wonderfully

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!

Served side by side with Malheur Bière Brut (Brut Reserve).

The beer is chestnut brown colored with a fizzy, beige head that leaves sparse lacing on the glass. The aroma is sweet, yeasty, fruity. The flavor is pretty tasty, with prominent yeast and spice notes. Earthy with some alcoholic warmth in the finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, I enjoyed this. Good for splitting several ways at a tasting.
