3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy brown-amber with creamy fizzy beige head. Smells is malt, spice, fruit (fig, peach, apple), mineral. Taste is even more sweet and spicy but not cloying. Some cloves and grassiness. Almost salty finish. Palate is frothy but fine. High booziness (9.2%) well balanced. Lots of things going on in this beer without getting too big - a refined and complex example of a strong Belgian ale.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 Bottle 330 ml, pours slightly cloudy hazel nut brown with ivory colored stable head. Aroma of nuts, raisins, dried fruits, barnyard, leather and earth. Low sweetness that switches fast earthy tartness with some bitter notes. In the finish there is again some light sweetness. Nice, but a little bit to tart for me. I prefer Rochefort 10.
