Pours a dark brownish caramel color with a frothy offwhite head, sweet taste, fruit, bread, malt, alchohol, similar to other beers of the same style i’ve had, good beer overall.

Esta trapista não honra muito a tradição dos monges de Rochefort. Trata-se de uma Rochefort 8, só que com menos aroma e sabor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Criminally over-chilled bottle in gold-rimmed snifter. Inviting berryish sweetness on the nose, suggesting mellow English hops. Milk chocolate, pruney fruit and gentle roast. Yeasty sparkle, bready malt afters. Some licorice in the finish. Chocolate and demerara. Head fizzes out in seconds, but I’m blaming the glass. Not a trace of alcohol. Accomplished, smooth, murderously drinkable Trappist.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle ’06 Vintage- Pours a ruby red in the glass, although not as cloudy as other Dubbels I have had. There was a good white fluffy head that ended in lots of lacing. The aroma is full of sweet fruits. The flavor of this beer is a well balanced blend of fruits, sweet malts and a touch of alcohol fire. As the beer warms, it finishes with some of the same mouthfeel as a brandy or cognac would. Very nice.

2/2/05. 330 ml from BelgianShop. Hazy amber with small light tan head. Nice malty aroma. Sharp taste but somewhat thin on palate. Quick ending. Similar but slightly better when compared side by side with St. Bernardus 6.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Carries complexity, but a tolerable amount of it. Starts off frothy in the mouth and rides for a few seconds before formally closing with a citrus-esqe end. It lingers though in the mouth and you get a thick somewhat hearty flavor when you move your mouth. Overall this won’t be my favorite Belgian brew, and certainly not what I consider the best by the Trappists, but it’s still good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Deep rusty orange/brown in color with a dense tan head. The aroma has a ton of sweet Belgian malt; along with dates, raisins and brown sugar. Has a highly carbonated mouth feel. Nice toffee flavor with dried fruits like dates and raisins. Maple-like background makes it rich with a light alcohol touch. Straight forward and simple, but well crafted.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours murky semi-transparent brown with a small head. Aroma is dried fruit, molasses, and a hint of spice. Rochfort makes the best smelling beers int he world. Flavor is not as impressive as the nose. Sweet malt dominates and is paired with some dried fruit, and hint of alcohol and nice roasted flavors in the finish.

Bottle from the Hopduvel, Ghent. Dark cloudy brown colour with a decent off-white head that left plenty of lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, spice and chocolate. Flavour was sweet and fruity with more spices and a very smooth finish. Very easy drinking and highly enjoyable.
