3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown mahagony with a tall foamy and fizzy off-white head, somewhat diminishing with lined spotty lacing. Sweet light roasted nutty caramel malt (cookie) aroma with candy and fruit (plum) notes, yeast (dough) and maple. Mild sweet caramel malt lightly acidic flavor that creates a dry fizzy light hop finish. Medium bodied and thick dry, fizzy palate, lightly spiced.

This smells great - caramel and something else. Looks nice too. Flavor faintly reminds me of Doppelsticke, which I love. The finish is just a little faint, but a stellar beer. Of course, the price reflects that.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 3rd attempt with this beer and I still struggle with it. Pours a muddy brown colour. Aroma is strong with over boiled peas, sweet fruits like figs. Flavour is sweet with figgy dried fruits. Lacking in depth and overall a touch too sweet. Initially the carbonation is too strong. It needs to sit for 10 minutes before drinking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Hazy dark brown/ruby beer with thick lasting beige tight head. Lots of chocolate and darkish fruits. Really lovely dubbel, a cut above the others. Not as intense as the 8 or 10 but still a class beer.

Rochefort 6 has a pleasent aroma. A complex mixture of malt, spice, and alcohol. The color is a nice rich red with a long lasting light brown head. There are some wisps of lacing. The taste is both malty and slightly fruity. Rochefort’s finish is nice and smooth.

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, deep red, nice foamy head. Awesome aroma - nutmeg, allspice, eucalyptus, stewed toffee maltiness, cookie dough, orange rind, cider mulled with cinnamon. Seems to be lacking malt - it’s probably a bit worse for wear from the journey. Toasty, biscuity malt before quite a dry, chalky, slightly roasty and bitter, even soapy finish. There’s just not that much going on beforehand. A bit too light and fizzy, but very good nonetheless. Tasted a fair bit maltier in Belgium.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with creamy head. Rich aroma with banana, peach, plums and candy. Complex flavour with toffee, chocolate and dried fruits. Slightly thin, perhaps because it is impossible not to compare with no 10.
