elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Silty brown color, beige foamy head. Aroma is malty with dark fruit. Prune, cherry, some cocoa and hints of spice.Smooth, complex and balanced although a bit thin. A decent example of the style, but lacking a standout character of it’s own.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2004
Mellow chocolate and fig malts are embedded in a sultry bed of hops with a sweet banana and coffee flavour. Add a touch of cherry and this one was very similar in taste and texture to the rochefort 8. my dinner guests approved of this one over the 10. They’re insane... but this would be a common group pleaser for sure.

DYCSoccer17 (3442) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Bottle. Chocolately malty spicy pepper banana notes. Hazy mahogany color with a light tan head. Chocolate coffee roasty notes with some yeast flavors and banana hints. Good, but slightly thin.

TBone (13367) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2004
Bottled (BB 11/2005)
Dark ruby, creamy brown head. Strong aroma of prunes, cherry and malts. Smooth, carbonated, malty and easy to drink. Alcohol gives warming long aftertaste. Taste has malt and dark grapefruit.

TorbenH (908) - Frederikshavn, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2004
One of the finest belgian beers available. Dark brown colour. Lasting head. Malty and complex taste. Maybe its better than Rochefort.

imdownthepub (10989) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2004
Bottle conditioned at The Oude Arsenaal, Antwerpen. Dark brown with tan head. Sweet malty beer with a prune like hint and a spicey undertone. Chalky mouthfeel with some coffee and a alcohol nose.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Dark brown color with ruby hues and a thick tan head. Nose is yeast and dark fruit (raisin and plum). Flavor starts spicy with notes of plum and red grape turning lightly tart and finishing kinda dry with a touch of prune. Nice but pricy.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Poured murky brown with then tan head...smelled sweet and raisin like...tasted all earth fruits, like a thin and less sweet DFH Raison D’etre...medium mouth feel...finish wasn’t as cloying as the DFH though...disappointing...this really made me think it was a DFH spritzer...like I put club soda in one...

hopdog (9461) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2004
Poured a dark, murky, reddish brown with an averaged sized tan head. Initially, lots of carbonation bubbles on the side of the glass. Aromas and tastes of spices, caramel, yeast, toffee and some plums. Starts off lightly sweet and ends on a nice, dry finish. Lively body. Another kick ass monk beer…

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Brown Coloring with Good Head. Some Prunes/Raisins.. Thick on the Tongue...but Disappointing Overall. Not Much for Taste.. Maybe a Bad Bottle.
