Jonb5 (520) - Greater London, - DEC 12, 2012
330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice. Colour was very dark copper, with auburn edges, opaque. One finger tanned head, very good retention, had a small scar on top of the head from the pour. Aroma was initally musty, notes of grape, caramel, malt, medicine and brown sugar. The first thing I noticed after pouring was that a could smell the beer from a lot further away than normal. Tasted medicine, brown sugar, molasses and strawberry. Booze was so well hidden I wondered if the decimal point was too far to the right. Texture was very smooth and almost moussy, very light body, perfection. Overall exceptional, aroma, look and mouthfull cant be improved. So far Ive never had a better beer.

Bottle at home. Aged a year or two. Brilliant! Taste of dried fruits, fudge, brown sugar, cinnamon buns and dark rye bread. Light perfect balanced bitterness at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piwo w kolorze ciemnobrazowym z obfita sredniopecherzykowa piana pozostawiajaca ladne zdobienia na szkle. W aromacie bardzo intensywna sliwka i morele, sa tez brzoskwinie, przyprawy i cukier trzcinowy. W smaku bardzo zlozona mieszanka tego co w aromacie z domieszka karmelu i drozdzy belgijskich. Wysokie nasycenie praktycznie bez goryczki z bardzo dobrze ukrytym alkoholem. Finisz troche wytrawny z ziolowym posmakiem. Klasyk!

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2017 Bottle. It pours dark brown with a light head. Quite a looker. Aromas of sweet dark fruits - raisins, dates etc., caster sugar and some spices. Taste is sweet and caramel like. The dark fruits are present in the taste as well. Some alcohol, but very drinkable.

GemmeDeReve (36) - FRANCE - JAN 15, 2017
Bire trappiste trs fonce, avec beaucoup de mousse mais qui redescend assez rapidement. Une odeur trs fume, un peu mtallique, assez ptillante, un got de fum, on reconnat bien le houblon propre la trappiste de rochefort, mais ce got ne reste pas, il laisse place un palais assez doux qui fait apprcier la trappiste

Aroma is fruity and surprisingly light for such a strong beer. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter, caramel, raisins. Very unique and strong aftertaste. Alcohol very well hidden. Excellent beer, but not easily drinkable. I would prefer no 8, but this is also very good.

Aromas of bread, banana, citrus and spices. Pours a dark brown with small off white head. Tastes of banana and wood with a smooth fizzy finish. Exceptional beer.

A very strong beer, extremely full of tastes, sweet, bitter, caramel, dark, but with a huge depth. A spectacular beer, that cant be taken twice in the same day.
