No 61 - St Bernardus Grottenbier

A deep, big nose with lots of raisins, dark plums, chocolate and a fine creamy note. Some christmasy notes. Deep and fine but not that exciting. Good though.
The taste is medium big with sweet black fruits, smoky notes and a nice bitterness in the finish, which is rather long and tasty. A solid built beer that is very good, but I had expected more from this brewery, since the other beers from here - the Abt 12 and especially the Triple - really have been my cup of tea!

89p   (tasted from bottle - 2010/12)
