Brown ale. Médium head. Mainly Fruity aromas but some malty notes like cream and vanilla which introduce complexity. Medium and oleous body. Sweet taste and a warm sensation in mouth because of the high alcohol. Long ending with retronasal aromas of caramel and vanilla. It is a very nice beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
11.2 oz bottle served in a shaker- poured a heavily murky darkened to near black brown in color when held to a light source, medium carbonation, 3mm light tan head that was quite bubbly but didn’t fade away into oblivion because of it. Aroma of figs, plums, pears, brown sugar- quite a small sample to pick out because there are more. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt doesn’t need to be overpowering because various dark fruit sensations with toffee dominate it, middle has a bite of pepper and cumin, finish is slightly drying. Alcohol cannot be noticed at all. Just right for a pick me up!

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rochefort 10 pours dark brown with a red hue. The head is beige and frothy and sustains itself well for 11.3% ABV.
The nose is big and incrediby complex; it includes brown cane sugar, caramel, baked apple, pear, figs, blackcurrant, milk chocolate, biscuit, butterscotch, and bright bubblegum notes and even a hint of fruity ginjoko. The bouquet is not only as dark as you would expect, but is balanced with bright aromas at the same time. Incredible.
On the palate, the muted sugar counterbalance the heavy flavors up front, which include prunes, caramel, and dark bread crust, before the roastiness and bitterness from the hops invigorate the mid-palate. Peppery spiciness and warming alcohol conclude each mouthful with a dry finish, and leaves dark fruits and dark bread behind.
A deeply complex brew.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich, chocolaty brown with a vigorous beige head, which dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, toast, plum, licorice, and raisin. In terms of taste, there’s caramel, toast, plum, and chocolate, with a slightly bitter finish and the warming sensation you’d expect of a beer this strong. Full bodied, rich, creamy, and lively carbonation. very nice.

0,33 pullo@Kaisla Hki. Syvän ruskea, samea. Selkeä vaahto. Tuoksu kevyt maltainen, baarin keittiön rasvan haju sotkee oluen aromeja. Maku täyteläisen hedelmäinen, alkoholi tuntuu vahvasti.
