4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle into Trappist glass. Dark brown color with half-finger of off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel, roasted malt, light chocolate, dark fruit (prunes, figs), nuts and fruity tart Belgian yeast. Taste is much the same as aroma, adding some biscuit and wood notes. Heavy body, complex flavors balancing nicely, dry finish. Good stuff.

Het 'kleine broertje' van de 10. Fruitig aroma, zoete smaak met licht bittere afdronk. Elegante schuimkraag. De Rochefort is en blijft een absolute topper!

Beautiful color but no grain taste. No coocked grain taste ! This beer is made with too much Brown sugar. The taste is the same, this is caramel. Very llow bitterness. The foam is decreasing very fast. The general taste is good but i expect more than Brown sugar taste when i buy a beer.

330ml Bottle. This pours a dark brown topped by a light tan head that is thick and creamy (for a bottle). Its aroma is fainter than I had hoped reading the other reviews. However there is traces of sweetness, dark fruits and malts. The taste echos the aroma with dark fruits coming to the fore with dark chocolate and a sweet bitter finish. Thankfully this beer is not as sweet as i thought it would be and is full of complex flavours. A good un.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From 0,33l bottle. BBD: 03.08.16. Pours hazy amber brown liquid with dark apricot reflex, medium tan head. Aroma: beautiful deep rich aroma, cognac, red fruits, plum, resin, citrus, summer biscuit fruit cakes, caramel, well hidden alcohol. Taste: medium sweet, light to medium bitter, light to medium sour, biscuit cakes, citrus, fruits, Palate: medium body, oily texture, average to soft carbonation, long bitter sweet and warm (bit alcoholic) aftertaste. Quiet good drinkability because of medium body with watery/oily mouthfeel and good carbonation. Overall: Excellent aroma, taste bit less excellent, than expected (perhaps due to not best storing conditions), would recommend with summer fruits cakes or winter gingerbread.

High carb. V little aroma. Burnt fruit. Okay but nothing special. Not sure if I get this Belgian beer thing yet...

Donkerbruine kleur, weinig schuim. Fruitig aroma. Smaakt fantastisch, fruitig, zoet met een kleine bittere nasmaak. Goddelijk.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lovely brown colour, more lively than expected with a good foam top. Smells of fruit, Granny Smith even. Taste is not as pronounced as hoped, but the finish is superb. Cognac, apples, red fruits, citrus. Very complex.
