4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl bottle, íbbeí Aug 2010. Chocolate brown with a dark mahogany shine and a pretty stable beige froth. Aromas of chocolate, nuts, cherries, a hint of bananas... Earthy and malty taste with chocolate and a background of dark fruit. A long bitter aftertaste and alcoholic mouthfeel.

One of the best beers Iíve tasted, fruity with a smooth light bitter finish, light in the mouth and refreshingly crisp for a darker beer. Awesome a top 5 for sure.

Sick of the sight of this damn stuff. Every day I have to tell people that itís rochefort, not fucking rocquefort... itís a beer not a fucking cheese.....
All the same itís a damn fine drop. To alcoholic on occasion. Iíll save the fruits and nuts renditions....

UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 Pours deep nutty brown with big beige head. Very creamy as well. Aroma is powerful, alcoholic and very much plum, woody and cherry-like. Taste is great as well. Warming and powerful, sweet and yeasty.

Outstanding! Deep rich color, slightly thick mouthfeel with a little carbonation. Taste is smooth and alcohol does not stand out much at all. Definitely my new favorite.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with tannish-beige head, disappearing shortly thereafter. Lots of chunks and debris at the bottom of the bottle. Faint hints of malts, caramel, and molasses in the aroma...the taste is quite malty with some slight fruit overtones and you definitely taste the alcohol. But itís (the alcohol) superbly mixed with the other flavors. As the mug drains, this stuff seems to be getting sweeter. Too sweet perhaps. Itís velvety-smooth and could really put a hurt on you with the alcohol content. Definitely not something Iíd ever want to drink more than one of in an evening, but pretty good.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2009 33 cl BeerBistro. Akin to the Eight, deeper sugary/malty flavor imbued with dried dark fruit, nice dry edge of hops and reasonably integrated alcohol. Okay depth, body and balance, overall pleasant!. Will have to try a few more samples from this inconsistent brewer, preferably not fridge-stunned. ** Re-rate ** several samples at Only Cafť have been deep, spicy, fruity, and complex with a creamy feel and a light acidity that is perfect, er I mean better than 4.0. So smooth and rich and balanced showing no sharp alcohol.
