Pours very dark with hints of brownish orange shining through. It pours with a medium sized tan head that fades relatively quickly, but not completely. The aroma has caramel and malts along with some soft fruits (apricot, banana). The aroma has also hints of toffee and distinct smell of alcohol. The flavor at the beginning follows the aroma, but with much more malt and caramel than fruit. Flavors of raisin bread, bitter hops, and dark fruit (plums) reveal themselves on the middle of the tongue. The beer finishes somewhat dry and bittersweet (some roasted grain flavors showing through in the end) with virtually no after-taste. The finish also has some alcohol warming the throat as you swallow. The mouthfeel is splendid - quite creamy and light - particularly light for such a strong beer.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2006
Dark hazy brown with a large off-white head, poor retention. Spicy christmas pudding aroma, caramel, yeast, alcohol.. so complex and inviting. The body is near perfect, full, but without a dominating alcohol. Flavours of spice, old blood plums, yeast and a warming fruity finish. Brilliant, I think Westy have a better product than St B in the ABT, but this St B thrashes the westy 8 with this beauty.

Very smooth aroma of fruit and true Belgian yeast that gvies me comfort in drinking this. Pitch dark brown hue with a creamy perfect foaming on top. Delicious in its flavor. Just so true to the style i cant believe i never picked up a bottle of this before.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Corked 750 from Ross. Pours brown with a nice off white head that laces beatifully down the glass.Fruity ester aroma, along with some alcohol. Not as murky as I was expecting. Very earthy texture. Flavor of dark fruits, caramel, and yeast. Finish is spicy with a medium alcoholic kick. The yeast flavor coats the back of the mouth after it goes down. Nice beer. Itís no Westy 8, but much cheaper and easier to get. I would love to A/B this to Rochefort 8. Thanks for another solid beer Ross. Keep them coming Mr. RR.
