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 itís all due by brown candy sugar additions. Very very attenuated (I measured its FG: itís 1006! Ridiculous! It means the OG is equal to 1072 and the attenuation is about 92%!), its ethylic feel is more than just subtle: itís actually invasive and a bit unpleasant. Really high carbonation. Bodyís just absent. Iím a fan of Rochefort 10, a huge one, but this beer lacks the big sisterís 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, doesnít 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 havenít 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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
That cheesecake beer pairing guide I shared a few weeks ago recommended pairing it with a Dubbel so I hit up Ohtsuki for a Trappistes Rochefort 8 (9.2%) and picked up some cheesecake to give it a try.
The rochefort is a dark oaky brown with minimal head and a rich raisins, bready cinnamon bun sweetness while the cheesecake contributes a creamy cheese and baked Graham crust in the aroma. Mouthwatering.
Full bodied but with a sharp carbonation and a bone dry finish the Rochefort presents boozy stone fruit, woodsiness and a herbal hop character.
The cheesecake counteracts some of the dryness with itís rich flavor and accentuates the spices and fruits. I get an image in my mind of eating butter cookies while drinking eggnog.
The beer on its own is too dry and gassy for me but with the cheesecake it rocks
