Very interesting beer. Thought I would check out all the hype. I wasn’t disappointed. Frightened at first by the cidery aroma, thought I might have gotten a bad bottle. I was wrong. Dark red-brown, mostly clear with bits of sediment making for an interesting appearance. Wonderful, complex taste. So many things going on inside: citrus, dark chocolate, too many to mention. Comes on strong at first, but finishes smoothly and sweetly. Lingers on the palate with a wine-like quality. Impressive!

33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A deep copper coloured pour with a thick cream head that falls back to a tight layer; the aroma has vinous fruits, soft brown sugar, and Belgian yeast; it’s quite light in the mouth with some soft carbonation on the tongue, and some raisins and demerara sugar; a a touch of spicy dryness, before a gentle warmth emerges to give a pleasantly rounded finish. A well balanced, well made, ale.

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.

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

Bottle. Pours hazy dark orange with off-white head. Aroma is very fruity, lots of grape, prunes, sweet-fruit forward malt. Taste is medium bodied, high carbonation, lightly sweet, malt forward. Overall, very nice.

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.
