4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Much like the 6 and 8, this stuff rocks! Again, start to finish this ale is total enjoyment. Similar to the 6 with the exception that I FEEL this beer warming in my stomach (alcohol?). Pours almost opaque brown with lots of small, white sediment. Very delicate lacing pattern, oily and quick. Promounced, estery nose with suble hints of spicy fruits and something unexplainable - like alcohol-soaked bananas? Complex flavors abound - sweet caramel, slight nutty bitterness, fruits, spices, sweet alcohol. Best consumed slowly - its quite filling and alcoholic. Quite literally a liquid meal of happy stupor! One can easily get into trouble with this one-drinkable and alcoholic...Nice!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Beer pours deep brown with almost white head. The aroma is intense and fantastic: lots of chocolate, malts, fruit, and alcohol - hints of fortified wine and dried cherries. The flavor starts bittersweet and thick on the tongue. Lots of malts, some roasted flavors, some dried fruits (cherries, raisins). Hop bitterness creeps in towards the middle and end of the flavor - but in an exceptionally balanced way. The beer has a long finish that is somewhat dry. The mouthfeel is very thick, but not syrupy or distracting. The carbonation lightens it enough to make it quite palatable.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 Poured slightly cloudy dark amber color with a thin, slightly tan head. Aroma of pit fruit, brown sugar, yeast, and a slight spice/pepper smell also. Began with a sweetness backed by a raisiny taste. Finished with a slight bitterness and a minor amount of heat from alcohol.

33 cl bottle, ’bbe’ 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 I’ve 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 it’s rochefort, not fucking rocquefort... it’s a beer not a fucking cheese.....
All the same it’s a damn fine drop. To alcoholic on occasion. I’ll save the fruits and nuts renditions....
