St. Bernardus Christmas Ale

Beer #1496 is a belgian strong ale brewed by Brouwerij St. Bernardus in Belgium.

A rich sweet deeply fruity ale that tastes more like a red wine (complete with that aroma) than a beer. At a whopping 10% it hides the alcohol remarkably well and doesn’t come across as winey, despite the red wine comparison, leaving only a pleasant warmth in the taste. There’s little bitterness to speak of. I liked it, and half way down the bottle I found that it paired very well with milk chocolate Ferrero Rochet. I won’t have it again but I’m glad I’ve tried it.

The bottle size is 750ML with an alcohol content of 10.00% (containing approximately 5.90 AU / 7.50 UK standard drinks), and it cost me $24.99.

My Rating is 6.00/10 which means it’s a good solid beer and it comes recommended.
