Bierdimpfe (327) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
Opaque black color with strong glass clinging activity and a yeast ring deposit at the bottom. Creamy and frothy orangy 5 finger island sparkling head sprinkled with some dark charred powder, lasting more than 30 minutes, with an average amount of legs. Flavors of dark fruits, cherries, ester fruits, banana yeast, oak, molasses, herbal spices. Highly sugary yet strong bitterness with an earthy feel. Medium body with strong prickly carbonation. Powerful puckering, leathery, and chalky finish, ending with a dry yeasty, dark fruity, and barrel aged feel. Overall the craft is well done but hard to enjoy. Good appetizer and hard alcohol style brevage. Very boozy, super dry, no freshness. I find it difficult to drink having no pleasing elements. It’s quite complex while overly intense.

Una abt/Quadruple de color castaño oscuro sin filtrar y espuma media. Su aroma es suave en las que se destacan notas de caramelo, frutos secos (ciruelas y pasas) y un toque de dulce de leche y café. Su sabor es fuerte, corpóreo en el que destacan los frutos secos (ciruela), chocolate y uva con un final seco, cremoso y duradero que mantiene un dejo suave de alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Si ha fin dal primo assaggio l’impressione di una birra dalla grande personalità. Sembra di bere la tradizione, un piccolo pezzo di storia che si manifesta attraverso un equilibrio eccezionale tra gli aromi in gioco. Colore splendido, schiuma assolutamente discreta, grande palato anche se il luppolo la fa da padrone.

Thought I had already rated this this one and that I was giving it a 2nd rate. But no, ntl I still think this beer is overrated. A little too artificial and the mouthfeel is not that great. I stick with 3.6.

Slight alcohol aroma masked by dark fruit. Exceptional dark brown color. Brown head that remains through drinking and provides wonderful lacing. I taste hints of caramel, molasses, and even slight chocolate. Wonderful beer.

ardeo (155) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2016
Bouteille de 33 cl. Déjà "goûtée" et dégustée à de nombreuses reprises mais cette nouvelle dégustation suit celle d’une autre bière belge du même type et franchement "il n’y a pas photo" : un monde de différence à tous les niveaux ! Tout est dans le détail, surtout la subtilité, l’équilibre, la finition. Là où certains pêchent par un ajout immodéré de sucre, d’autres qui ne soignent pas l’apparence et les plaisirs des arômes, Rochefort conserve sa finesse et son savoir-faire est toujours perceptible.

Color marrón oscuro con reflejos claros y sin apenas capa de espuma (marrón claro también). No mucha carbonatación. Restos de, probablemente, fermentación en botella. Aroma a malta tostada, algo frutal, quizá algo especiado, y un mínimo de alcohol (notable pero muy mínimo en comparación a otras cervezas del estilo). El sabor es similar, incluso con notas mínimas de café, y con el alcohol, de nuevo, muy moderado. Se percibe que hay alcohol, evidentemente, pero jamás pensaría uno que esta cerveza es de 11,3%, lo cual, al menos para mi paladar, es muy de agradecer. Esta cerveza me parece acongojante. Realizar algo así debe ser un trabajo complejo de narices. Gracias, Rochefort Trappistes, qué más puedo decir...
