poured into a riedel crystal champagne flute to appreciate the deep brown, yet translucent color, well-retained head, and exquisite lacing...an intense and intricate amalgam of aromas and flavors best characterized in terms of dried fruit, chocolate, molasses, raisin(see: dried fruit), banana, and subtle cloves with a sweetness that lingers but never degenerates into anything near cloying...a nearly perfect beer if ever one has existed!

Bottle. It’s hard to pay so much for a beer! I have to say this one is worth it for those special occasions when nothing but the best will suffice.

Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2007
Murky brown pour. Very fizzy. Sounded like Alka Seltzer. Aroma was faint from the start and picked up toward the finish. Served at 55 F. Chocolate,dark fruit,hints of tobacco. Veeery long finish. Very good but I’ll still take a St. B 12 or even a well aged bottle of Trois Pistoles. $5.69 a bottle. Took almost 1/2 hr with it.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2007
Pale, cloudy brown in color with chunks of sediment and a thin creamy tan head. Smells of candied fruit. The flavor is like thin maple syrup with an aftertaste similar to bananas foster. Delicious.

Wow.. strong beer. Will take a bit getting used to, but you’ll thoroughly enjoy it when you do.

KM (416) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 15, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2010 Bottle. Dark brown body. Big off white lasting head. Beautiful. Heavy complex aroma. Sweet chocolate, some licorice. Sweet heavy flavour. Roasted. Sweet malt. Hints of fresh hops. Not too sweet. Well balanced. Well hidden alcohol. Delicate finish. Sweet but not too sweet. (Hall’s Beer, Paris, 28.02.2010) -------- Cloudy dark brown body. Fluff head, mostly lasting. Heavy sweet aroma. Starts with a light fruity flavour, but a sharp bitterness and alcohol dominates the flavour. A bit too much carbonation. Dry finish. A beer you have to take time to like. (29.03.07)

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2010 330 ml bottle, $7.49. Aroma is heavy malt and moderate yeast with notes of sweet dark bread and a little raisin. Average sized, frothy, light khaki, mostly lasting head with a fair amount of lacing. Body is a murky dark brown lots of medium sized particles. Flavor is moderately sweet and ends slightly bitter. Malty dark bread flavors are well balanced and the alcohol well hidden. Duration is average. Palate is light/medium with a watery texture, soft carbonation, and light alcoholic finish. A good beer but I expected a little more.

Bottle: Dark, rich, brown pour with a creamy tan head. A gorgeous aroma with a sweet malty scent bringing to mind a subtly sweet bread or even a cookie with a hint of straw and an earthen yeast smell as well. Smooth, creamy feel with a reasonably soft carbonation balances out the palate. I cannot help but zero in on the sweet notes that range anywhere from apricot to sugared ricotta (it is possible that my imagination is getting away, but I’d swear by it). In the same breath though one cannot escape the more grounded flavors: faint cheese, meadow, and perhaps hundreds of others. This beer is so wonderfully complex and develops through the bottle so well that you could quite possibly learn something about yourself by what you taste in it. Always a favorite.

4.4
GaltScat (195) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2007
Thick, ample light tan head with a dark, opaque brown pour. Aroma was modest but contained caramel, fruit, chocolate, bourbon, malt, and yeast. Flavor was very similar with a mellow chocolate that rolled through the mouth. The alcohol was apparent, numbing the mouth during the finish. I was generally surprised at how good Rochefort Trappistes 10 was. A very pleasing experience.
