Bottle 33cl. A dark nut brown colour with medium high beige head. An aroma of malt, raisin, alcohol and caramel. The taste is medium sweet. A full body, oily and creamy texture, flat carbonation and a long duration. A well balanced beer and a really nice mouth feel.

Poured from bottle, 11.2oz, used porter stemmed glass. Large frothy whitish brown head above dark brown color. Smells as described with a hint of vanilla. Palate is smooth and enjoyable. High alcohol content noted in taste but not overwhelming and the overall taste is nice with hint of vanilla and hazelnut at the finish.

Very good, and tasty, dark beer. A bit fruity, but just to in the right amount. Maybe the best in the 8/10/12 Rochefort series.

AlfredoGarcia (69) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 26, 2015
330 ml bottle. Chocolate smell, with notes of vanilla, cherry, cream, very complex. Dark color with a beautiful white head that doesn’t fade. Extraordinary. Bitter taste, but very balanced. Elegant beer that even if intense, it doesn’t exacerbate nothing. Because is a strong beer, you can feel it with your throat, but not the alcohol, just the great taste. Fantastic beer, i can die in peace now.

Dark brown, tan and creamy head. Mild lacing. Raisin, plumb, dark berry, mild citrus and mild floral notes. Full bodied, sweet malt, mild roast, mild alcohol, fruity, earthy and mild lemon. Medium bitterness, nice balancing fruity malts, mild spice, and nice dry notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dado93 (151) - ITALY - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle, aged 2.5 years, deep brown color with dark red reflex, lightly tan head, not very persistent,. Sweet aroma, liquor notes, caramel malt. In mouth are smooth with really low carbonation, i have thinked about a much solid body, but it’s not heavy, almost silky, sweet sensation, dried fruit (raisins...), malt, liquor (good rum?), great sweet aftertaste.

Wanne (24) - - MAR 22, 2015
Color is dark brown, with a beige head. The aromas of caramel and malt are dominant. Dark chocolate, plums and raisins can be distinguished in the taste, combined with a tender vinous touch. Although the beer has an ABV of 11,3%, it is very smooth to drink. Top class beer. Best beer I ever drank.

Reddish pour, little head. Aroma is big, currant, plum, raisins, apple and caramel. Taste is complex blend of plum, raisins and apple. Very nice mouth feel on this. All flavors mesh well. Really nicely built beer. Top of the list for style.
