2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Pours rich golden brown with a heavy and persistent tan head. Aroma of hops, malt, and alcohol. Flavor is bitter fading rapidly into malt, with a strong note of some kind of grassy flavor, not entirely nice. A little too much alcohol for my tastes. Not my favorite Trappist.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[554-20070823] 330mL (06/09/11). Mouldy fruit plum bread aroma with dank cellar wood notes and medium alcohol. Clear, dark red amber body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Mostly dull fruity bread and woodsy dark raisin malt flavour with hints of chocolate. Dull medium-full body is a little dry. Very interesting combination of senses.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2007 Pours a maple syrup color with thin, tan head. Nose is fruity, malt, and very compex. Lacing slowly forms as the head disipates. Dried fruit, malt and a little chocolate make up the flavor, and the finish is slightly dried fruit and sweet. Very, very nice. I think I like it more than the Rochefort 10, but I guess I will have to try it again!
