3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark ruby brown with a creamy head. The aroma is quite subdued, a little ripe banana, a little cloves but nothing strong. A strong clove taste, some banana notes, some spicyness. A great version of a Belgian strong ale. Not as good as the 10 though.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of dark fruits and wine. Nica taste of the same, but ends up with spices and alcohol. A complex taste. Very nice and worth its above 4 rating. Quality!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Short lasting rocky white foam. Aroma of stone fruit and caramel. No chocolate, no nut and no coffee at all despite its color which is about 16 SRM, so that I guess it’s all due by brown candy sugar additions. Very very attenuated (I measured its FG: it’s 1006! Ridiculous! It means the OG is equal to 1072 and the attenuation is about 92%!), its ethylic feel is more than just subtle: it’s actually invasive and a bit unpleasant. Really high carbonation. Body’s just absent. I’m a fan of Rochefort 10, a huge one, but this beer lacks the big sister’s complexity. They used more sugar than malt. Why? Do the monks have any money issues?

Bottle at home. Deep amber with a white head, leaves no lacing, doesn’t last long. Spice, yeast, bread, malt on the nose, intensive and pleasant. Medium to high carbonation, a bit alcoholic.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Found myself randomly drinking at a French place on UES. No fucking way have I never had this but apparently I haven’t and always assumed I did. Poured sloppily by bartender resulting in spillage from bottle. Chestnut coloration lovely two finger head. Nose is dark fruits and bready. Tastes of figs, plums, caramel, dates, some yeast, bread. Touch sweet and fruity on palate. High carbonation and hides alcohol well.

La birra si presenta con schiuma beige con una breve persistenza.
All'esame visivo risulta di colore ambrato, velato.
All'esame olfattivo il suo aroma è abbastanza intenso e si percepisce l'aroma del fruttato - maltato
Nel complesso questa birra risulta armonica e molto piacevole.
