St. Bernardus Prior 8

Name – St. Bernardus Prior 8
Country – Belgium
Type – Dubbel

Appearance – Poured a deep red almost brown color with a slightly tan, bubbly head.

Smell – Sweet smells of grapes and raisins and slight smell of alcohol that burns the nostrils a bit.

Taste – Pretty on with what you get from the smell.  Sweet malts and the taste of the raisins and grapes.  Slight alcohol burn at the end.

I found this one to be a lot like the Pater 6 that I previously review but with a slightly more alcohol taste to it.  Still not bad.

Overall Grade – B

    It looks like Coca Cola…what are you trying to pull on us Mike?

    I really need to pick up their sampler. I love darker belgians, and I actually enjoy the alcohol flavor burn at the end.

      Blast! You are on to my scheme. I must flee to the underground!

      Sometimes it isn’t bad. It wasn’t bad on this one either. You really should pick it up. The Abt 12 is great and I still have to do the trippel.

    The 8 is not bad . . . I agree with the B rating. The 12 however is by far an A+. If you can get the sampler pack and try them all together, go for it; it is worth the money!
