St.Bernardus Prior 8 is a traditional abbey beer and sometimes also referred to as a dark tripel. The original recipe dates back to the times when we still brewed under licence (1946-1992). Named ‘World’s Best Dark Belgian Style Dubbel’ on the World Beer Awards, in other words, the best Dubbel beer in the world.
St.Bernardus Prior 8 is chestnut brown, emitting a deep red glow and presenting a lovely rounded head. The beer stands out with its fruity aroma, reminiscent of tree fruits like red apples, but complemented by exotic touches of figs and dates. The whole is rounded off perfectly by impressions of caramel and roast malt. The full taste is malty and fruity in equal measure and achieves the perfect balance between bitter and sweet.
