Bottled Brugs de’ Beertje 03-11-05. Poured a very dark brown with a thickish white head, some toffee sugary malt and fruity aroma’s. Nice and malty, with just the right level of sweetness in the taste department, full bodoied and very moreish. Very good beer.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 33cl bottle. Brown and opaque body, large white head, excellent lacing. A lot of light brown sediments at the bottom of my glass. Molasses, spices and alcohol aroma. Taste is cacao, burn caramel, brown sugar, woody. Alcohol is present and pleasant. Finish is dry and chalky with a light astringency. A very earthy and complex beer. Lives up to its reputation and it’s now part of my diet. A balanced diet is a Rochefort 8 in one hand and a Rochefort 10 in the other.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured into a Delirium Tremens tulip. Huge beige head formed atop of a beautiful dark rubyish body. Tons of lace. Aromas of rum raisin, black cherry, and plenty of candi syrup. Very malty and rich, yet light on the tongue. Syrup, molasess, exotic sugars, peppery. Slight alcohol burn. World classic in every sence of the word.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours large, lasting head, slowly giving way to layers of lace. Hazy dark ruby/brown. Forward, sweet aroma, predominantly anise & molasses. Also shows sassafrass/earth, candied orange, raisin, and some alcohol as it warms. Flavor is complex malt. Rich, robust licorice/maple/molasses. Malt balanced with dark candi sugar, smooth, even, and lasting. Flavors and aromas mature as it warms in the glass. Fantastic. Can’t (afford to) drink enough.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours brown with a frothy off-white head that leaves great lacing. The nose found brown sugar, dark fruits, caramel, and a light hint of alcohol in the aroma. The flavor had dark fruits, mainly plums, and spices. Full bodied, with lively carbonation. Light bitterness throughout. I look forward to the "10" that’s chilling.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured out OK, with a lot larger particulate than I’m used to. The head lasted, but it wasn’t appealing to me in the same way Duvel or La Fin Du Monde is.
The flavor was classic, good but unremarkable. It was good, but I don’t beleive I got my money’s worth.
I may try it again. Maybe I was having a bad day.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown with slightly off-white, creamy head. Sweet, delightful, strong aroma of brown sugar and plum — an aroma that hits the nose with every sip. Flavor is filled with toffee and overripe sweet plum and toffee. Nicely carbonated, medium body, moderately long finish. Like drinking dessert. Very enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Muddied brown pour with textbook Belgian lacing. Butterscotch, brown sugar, caramelized sugars all encase the strongly plum-like aroma. A slight alcohol heat is present as well. Prickly mouthfeel is full bodied. Lots more fig/plum/raisin notes carry the body, with a nice touch of baker’s chocolate as well.
