UPDATED: MAY 11, 2015 Bire brune quelque peu rougeoyante, compltement remplie de particules pouvant tre assez grosses et rendant le liquide parfaitement opaque, aspect mme un peu boueux, effervescence trs difficile observer travers ce magma mais qui semble bonne, et surmonte dun col bruntre, pas tellement large, mais bien dense, rsistant et collant. Armes principalement malts prsentant une bonne dose de fruits foncs trs mrs voire confits (raisin, cerise, prune/pruneau) et de caramel, avec du pain grill et du chocolat au lait, ainsi que quelques effluves de malt fum (fume, charcuterie, tourbe, lger bois), dalcool et desters fruits (bananes!). Le nez est trs agrable, belle complexit, intensit trs leve. En bouche, cest bien ptillant et lonctuosit au palais est excellente, cest rond, mousseux, soyeux, velout... Au got, cest largement fruit (raisins trs mrs, pruneaux, cerises) avec du pain grill, du caramel et du malt lgrement torrfi (chocolat surtout) et lgrement fum, bois. Lalcool est plus prsent au got quau nez, remplissant le dgustateur de sa douce chaleur, mais cest trs bien intgr, comme toutes les autres saveurs dailleurs. Excellent produit! Belle complexit, les saveurs sont trs intenses, et leur quilibre est savamment russi.

Bottle at home from Freshfields in Croydon. Pours dark red brown with an off white head. Aroma is boozy dried fruits, molasses, bread, caramel and a little clove. Taste is a sweet boozy hit of dried fruit, a bit like a good Christmas cake, some clove, banana and toffee in the background with just a little boozy bite as the sweetness mellows out. Nice and smooth and definitely drinkable.

ClearHead (18) - FINLAND - MAY 24, 2017
Bottle, BB date still over 4 years away. Good carbonation, head. Dark amber, clear. Aroma slightly spicy, fruity, caramel; very pleasant but delicate. Taste: caramel, dark berries, licorice; slightly tart, bitterness sharp but not overpowering. Very sweet. Mouthfeel medium to full. Short, slightly thin finish with a bite of alcohol. Too sweet on its own. Could be perfect with cheese after an excellent meal. Dangerous because one cannot really taste the alcohol...A suitable sourness would nicely balance this beer and make it greater still.

Fles gedeeld met LiekevdV. Het is een donker bruin bier met veel koolzuur. Het heeft een erg gebrande smaak.

A pesar de la bena presencia y color me resulta empalagosa, excesivamente dulce.

Een heel lekker tamelijk zwaar bier. Zeer stevige smaak die tot het einde blijft. De Rochefort 6 en 8 smaken identiek maar zijn wat dunner van smaak. Dit is geen bier om mee te beginnen, alle andere bieren smaken dan heel waterig, mooie afsluiter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I dont speak beer! Still very sophisticated aroma. This was my wifes favorites as it was smooth to drink with a respectable intrinsic flavor profile. Drink this it would make you cool!

balwanekfigo (117) - POLAND - MAY 17, 2017
W aromacie nuty chlebowe, lekki szlachetny alkohol, przyprawy. Całość niezbyt intensywna. Piana duża, duże pęcherzyki, beżowa, szybko opada. W smaku czuć ta Belgię, wyraźnie przyprawy korzenne, wysokie wysycenie, całość szlachetna, alkohol genialnie ukryty. Czuć śliwkę, ciemne owoce, rodzynki. Jak na 27blg nie jest zbyt gęste i wypełniające. Chyba liczyłem na większą słodycz. W zamian jest szlachetna wytrawnosc. Ciekawa pozycja.

wow wow wow. wonderful aroma of figs, plums and cherry. carbonation helps to push flavours around mouth, which includes figs, plums, cherries, chocolate and a slight hint of lemon. special beer.
