4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The dark color had a nice firm but quick disappearing head. Rich notes of plums and dried currants were the first thing I tasted. The alcohol was hidden so well in the malt. I have found a new favorite beer. I hope I can continue to find this incredible beer. This is what happens when beer is crafted beyond perfection

Simply a beast of beer. Nearly perfect. Years and years trying it. My impressions haven’t changed. You need more comments?

Bottle. Dark brown with small, persistent beige head. Aroma of malts, yeast, raisins, caramel, fruity, bananas, some apricot. Taste sweet, lot of malts and caramel. Full body, creamy texture, alcohol warming all over body. Awesome.

Really good somewhat dark beer. Fruity with a hint of vanilla anc cherries. Malts are present and had a decent head. Overall, I enjoyed drinking this but not my style.

Sehr dunkel. Hellbrauner Schaum. Geruch nach Dörobst, dunklen Kirschen und Bourbon. Für 11,3 % noch sehr mild im Geschmack. Ein Bier für besondere Anlässe!

33cl BBE 09/12/2019 Rather fresh. Aroma of caramelized cherries, bread, burnt sugar and some nutmeg. Pours dark brown with thin white head. Heavily hazy. Malty and fantastically caramelized beer. Sweet and strong. Medium bodied and extremely carbonated. Served at 12degC in to trappist goblet. A very strong example of Quad. I would love it to be less fizzy though.

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.

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.
