Pours dark brown with a full head. Aroma is fabulous with tons of dates, stone fruit, chocolate, black cherries and malt. The taste is viscous with more dates, rum cake. A bit sweet, but not excessive. Palate is surprisingly acidic for such a strong beer.

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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.
