Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
St. Bernardus Prior 8 Abbey Ale
Brouwerij St. Bernard NV
Trappisenweg, Watou, Belgium

Brain Damage Quotient = 8.0 % ABV

Postmortem Brew Review
Deep brown in color with slight cloudiness.
Fruity aroma with some caramel.
Creamy, tall, frothy off white head.
Figs, plums and other fruits along with a bit of molasses taste.

Even amount of carbonation. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
There's that grinning monk again.  Last time I had some St. Bernardus was a couple of years ago.  Why did I wait so long?

The date on the back of the bottle is good until 2014.  This ale was tremendous now as new and would have most likely been better if cellared for a year or two.  Worth stashing a few of these away for future tasting, to be dug out later.

A mighty fine dubbel of an Abbey Ale.  Get some.
