3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 330ml bottle poured into tulip. Appearance is hazy iced tea brown with red highlights. One finger head quickly fades to a ring. Bit of a bubble show with sediment resting on the bottom. Aroma is raisin, vanilla, fig, alcohol, light molasses, and grains. Taste is sweet malt and yeast with mild clove phenol, pumpernickel bread, brown sugar, and fig. Alcohol is prominent with fruit and spice notes. Medium-plus body, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation, spicy and sweet finish.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of my favorites! Much more balanced than Rochefort 10.
Subtle yet strong aromas, beautiful dark color with a yellowish foam.
The taste is just perfect with a strong but not overwhelming body.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Botella. Color marrón rojizo. Espuma beige muy claro de baja formación, jabonosa pero q aun persiste algo. Aromas a frutos negros, higos, malta, azúcar, levadura, cola, cereza, alcohol, amaretto...notas picantes y especiados. En boca es aceitosa pero ligera. Carbonatacion tiende a baja. En boca se aprecia los matices del aroma...dulce, algo alcoholica, y en final predomina la levadura "picante". Me parece q se aprecia el alcohol q tiene, no menos. Muy buena Birra...limpia...a ver q tal la 10.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is very subtle for a strong Belgian ale. Hints of fruityness, but of course caramel and roast. The appearance is neat: dark red, even brown, with a small yellow white foam. The taste is delicious: perfect mouth, with long, very long aftertaste. A strong palate, even with this 9.2 % alcohol version.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rated from beer log from 2009 Belgian Trip.... 2000 vintage from Kulminator in Belgium... Aroma is phenomenal, dark brown caramel color, foamy tan head that dissipated immediately... Aroma is brown sugar, candi sugar, maple syrup... Flavor is breathtaking, more balanced than the 10, alcohol less prominent... Candi sugar gives it a fruity sweetness that is not cloying, dark fruits... Finish is more gentle, subtle than the 10, but maybe not as good... Very clean, outstanding beer

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle at home. Such a great bouquet, notes of yeasts, sugars, bread, plum and figs. The flavour is very well balanced. It starts off with a yeasty breadyness that fades to a fruity character and ends very sweet with a marzipan flavour. Mouthfeel is full with plenty of carbonation. Very complex and extremely tasty.
