3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not my favorite Rocs. But still good. This 750ml bottle was heavy with protien globbies.
Poured rich brown, thick tan head.
Aroma is distinctly Rocs (I’m assuming it’s their yeast) malty richness.
Taste is smooth but nothing exciting.
I will re-rate when I can find a more clear bottle.

Bottle. Pours with big lumps of yeast. Large head with good retention. Metallic aroma. The flavor is rather complex with chocolate, dried fruit and alcohol.

Beautiful dark belgian appearance with tons of floaties. Taste is of dark fruit and brown sugar. Lush palate with the right carbonation. Spices- especially cinnamon. Not as complex as I would like. Delicious.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark amber with a creamy foamy head.The aroma from this is every bit as wonderful as Westy 8 or St. B 12.Luscious aromas of dark exotic fruits ie overipe bananas and aromatic spices.Not as thick as some of the Big Belgians but every bit as tasty.The Belgians strains of yeast are incredibly
complex in flavor.

Light brown with red highlights and a billowing tan head, this ale also had an abundance of yeast residue drifting about throughout the course of the drink. The aroma is sweet toffee with dried fruits and a dose of alcohol. The flavor is sweet and malty with brown sugar, raisins, some slight smokiness, and alcohol. The finish is a long, dry alcoholic one. I like this beer and all seven of its malts.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy dark orange with yeasties all over. Aroma is dry, estery, and alcoholic. Tastes of sweetness and fruity esters up front, and of course yeast. Spices in the background contribute some bitterness. Nice tartness works well to offset the alcohol. Texture is sticky and coating. Good beer.

much thanks to footbalm for sending me this brew.the drune poured a dark murky brown with loads of little "floaties" swimming about.i also was greeted with an inch and a half light brown head that took 5 minutes to start sitting down.as it did,it left a thick wall of webbing around my chimay glass.the aroma was a nice mixture of lemonade,earthy malts,spice,and salt.the flavor was super malty and smooth.containing a blend of sugar,wine,wood,lemonade,caramel,yeast,and brown sugar.the mouthfeel was semi thick,and stuck around after having a sip.this is very nice,and well balanced.
