4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Masuyo’s. Poured into a snifter. Pours a clear ruby tinged orange brown with a nice soapy two finger head that dissipates fairly quickly. Big aromas of fig, prune, and peach on the nose. Sweet on the palate but not overly cloying by any means. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. As it warms up the alcohol shows just a bit, but for 9.2% it hides it all fairly well. Soft carbonation with a really nice warming finish. World class strong ale!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour two and half fingers of head on a hazy dark brown body.
The aroma candy, caramel and dark fruits. Nice.
The taste is perfect. Balanced fruit sweetness, a touch of brown sugar, some other stuff, amazing.
The texture is light and fizzy.

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.

Nice typical strong ale aroma with tiny sour notes from the glass. Clear, copper color. Super pleasant taste. Alcohol perfectly covered. It’s big and really good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
