3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a light brown color with a nice fluffy head that provided adequate lacing. The aroma was caramel malty and even had some grassiness and honey in it. The flavor had all of the above with a little bit of a sweet finish and some yeast in the flavor profile. Came across too sweet and a little thick and syrupy for the amount of flavor, but not bad. Alcohol was nearly abasent.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
My absoute favorite beer.!
Beautiful amber colour, fruity in the scent, sweet taste, chocolate and thick.
I drank it from the original glass, which have an interesting story behind it:
The glass is shaped the way it is because the bartenders in old time, could serve it to passengeres and drivers on the horse-carriages whitout them stopping. Then the glass would hang in a special mounted holder and no beer would spill... Great story, great beer.

Dark coppery color, big light brown head. Spices, medium alcohol, caramel and mild chocolate. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is better than aroma: chocolate, licorice, medium alcohol and spices, aftertaste is warm with dryness and some caramel.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A amber coloured beer with a nice slightly brown head and a beautiful glass. The aroma is sweet, malty and there may be a some banana noticeable. But the aroma is way to sweet. The flavour is also sweet and a bit spicy. The beer is simply to sweet. (Bottle 33cl)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What a great beer. Thoroughly enjoyed this all the way. Can’t say anything negative about it except I don’t have another to drink. Aroma was malty sweet and a touch of caramel. Flavor also had the same as the nose but a little sweeter, grassy, and yeasty. I do like a sweeter ale, so this was right in the wheel house. I’d definitely get this again!!"

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light amber gold body with a small white head. Aroma of peaches and yeast. Flavor was nice, if not terribly complex. I tasted peaches, green grapes, and yeast. Very drinkable, but not in the class of the great Belgian Stong Ales.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 58F Trappist glass, Aroma is very floral, very sweet candi notes. A very rapidy diminishing white head, I walked away to put down the bottle I came back and the head was gone. Very light amber color and very clear. Slightly sweet malts, with just a touch of roasted malts, hint of cherry, bit of decaf coffee, finishes slightly dry, nothing very complex. It holds a very light palate. With light carbonation. It seems a bit light for a Belgian Strong, the alcohol is masked very well. Not bad but not in the same class as the Rochefort 8. Still enjoyable.
