4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Light orangy brown, beautifull creamy head and very lively carbonation. Smells like light fruit, caramel, apple, passionfruit, creamy, lemon candy, spices, sweet tea. A little bit light on the taste, very fresh and not too sweet. Nice palate, though a touch thin. Lots of carbonation at first. Overall: not one of the stronger beers, but this is really really well made. World class in its style.

Troebele caramelbruine kleur met aardige kraag. Fruitige, zoetige en caramelgeur. Smaakt lekker fris zoet en niet te sterk.

Cor âmbar escuro, colarinho marrom claro. Aroma suave, assim como o paladar. Malte médio, sem lúpulo. Condimentado levemente. Mais suave que a número 8. Bem equilibrada. Perfeita para um dia mais quente.

33cl. Pours hazy brown with a big but mostly diminishing beige head. Very nice aroma of caramel, chocolate, some alchool, spicy, sweet, very complex. Flavor is sweet in the begining fallowed by a light bitterness and ends with a honey flavor, also sweet, chocolate. One of the best strong ales.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light brown very foamy, malty aroma but pleasantly dry and crisp. Awesome flavor with slight maltineas but more like a golden pale in flavor with only slight malt kick.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark fruit gumbo of currant, date and especially plum with noticeable spicy yeast. Murky tan color, more subdued in appearance than some of the big brunes. Surprise bitter flavor, more hops than malt which I didn’t expect to find. Plenty of spice and zest. Has the overall zing and feel fountain cola, although it doesn’t seem all that carbonated. A fine Belgian brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, BBE 10/04/18. Pours a dark reddish brown with a large, off-white head. Aroma is a lot of dark fruits, some syrup, somewhat dark, rich, malt breadiness, raisin. A light hint of Christmas spiciness. Taste is semi-sweet with a lot of dark fruit and dried fruit. Prune and dates as well as light apricot. Somewhat spicy, complex. Some yeast there too. Quite carbonated, fairly light. Could be a tad fuller. Easy drinking, probably my favorite of the Rochefort-family. Would have to give the 8 another shot though.

Burgundy coloured. very rich aroma with loads of banana and red berries. Medium bodied, big toffee flavour. Sweet. Loads of raspberries in the finish. A very distinct and flavourful beer
