"MMMMMM Poured a hazy brown color with a nice head some sediment. Aroma was malty. Flavor was solid, malty with a hint of alcohol not not overwelming. Nice beer."

Bottle. Nice brown color with dissapearing off-white head. Now this is a very very good beer. But I canít help but thinking (when Iím drinking it) that it tastes like number 10 but with water added - sorry :-)

Brown. Disappearing white head. Aroma of caramel/toffee, dark fruits, yeast, candi sugar, subtle alcohol. Luxury. Same flavor with a bit of roastiness thrown in. Smooth, full/medium body. World class dubbel.

The fragrances of yeast, dates, and caramel all contribute to the aroma of this beer. It is a cloudy mahogany colored solution that rests under a thin off-white head. This beer is smooth and rich. It has a nutty fruit taste that fades to the taste of prunes as it is swallowed. The taste of prunes is left lingering.

pours a dark orange/bronze color with a large off white light tan head, aromas of citrusy fruit, belgian style spices, yeast. Flavor is sweet malts, yeast, citrusy fruit, alcohol, and some earthy floral hops (slight), good body, good brew.

Now that is a long lasting head! Looks like an off-white satellite picture of a cloud. A very young sample, best before Nov 2009. I donít pick up a lot in the scent. Smooth body and although it is thin the foaminess is still present. A very nice sipping beer. Strong malt. Mild alcohol presence. A sessional Trappist?

Bottle at Bishops Arms in Sundsvall, Sweden. February 17, 2006.
Dark with a white head. Lots of unfamiliar fruity scent. Great taste, very sweet. No alcohol character at all. Really exciting!
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget, thanks to deft!

Shady copper color, big creamcolored head. Fresh malty scent at first, turns to mint and spicy, then sweet and earth tones, alcohol. Sweet, dry, malty taste. Alcohol aftertaste. Warming alcohol. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, low bitterness.

Beautiful slightly muddy amber color with great head. Great beer not as strong an alcoholic as no. 8, but still has the wide spectra of flavors. I wonder what the difference between strong ale and Abbey Dubbel is?

Excellent beer, completely inline with the stronger Rocheforts 8 and 10. Head was missing, might have been the glass. Rich caramel/toffee taste.

Dark tea colour, big head; however there was something floating in it, like dirt - maybe itís just typical for the type. Smells nice however, like some fruits, tastes also very well - rich, thick, winey flavour with almost no traces of alcohol. Dry end. Good overall, gotta try other Rocheforts with the higher numbers.
