Very nice double. Not as sweet as chimey and more Carmel and chocolate flavors. Definitely worth drinking again

ThreeCats (630) - ISRAEL - APR 25, 2015
Clear brown with lots of ruby highlights and a big tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, rich caramel, toffee, dark brown sugar, hint of roast. Taste a little thin, kind of disappointing after the nose. Roast, some sweetness (but not enough), some raisins, a good alcoholic warmth down the throat. Roasty and dryish finish.

Aroma is sweet and boozy, taste starts with wood, fades into spicy yeast, with a red wine aftertaste. I like this one a lot.

Brune au doux nez de sucre d’orge. En bouche, une fine amertume s’amalgame à des notes de sucre cuit avec quelques pointes acidulées ici et là. L’alcool est relativement bien dissimulé. À la SAQ, la Rochefort 8 est un peu plus chère, mais bien meilleure.

Look; light light tan low head, brown to red brown body, some fields of lacing. Aroma; sweeties, sweet malted candies and prunes. Taste; pruned malts, wooden hops, roasted malts, prunes, nuts, moves to a finish with malts, berries, juicy fruity stuff. Good body, soft feel. Good brew. [btl @ TromsøJernbanestasjon]
