Poured a very dark colour from a bottle with a very thick head. The aroma was to me very caramel and spice but very pleasant. The taste was very good and not to sweet for the alcohol content. I really enjoyed this beer and hope to try again.
I bought this bottle two years ago in Amstein, it was a big inside war to let a time these beers in my cellar but I have found the perfect opportunity to drink these two bottles: the birthday of my brother. To say the true, I was a bit disappointing with the rochefort 6 and 8, so I was a bit afraid to try this one, best before 2020 but I could not resist and with my brother, we had a wonderful experience. Firstly, the color is a deep brown body, almost black, thin foam, average carbonation for the style. The taste is just an orgasmus in your mouth with intense aromas of plum, cherry, porto, nuts, malt, few hop, liquorice sensation. The taste in general is well balanced, complex, a great beer, you really don't have the sensation to have a so high degree of alcool. The taste is taking more power and the aromas stay a long time in your mouth like the eternity of the Atlantide, no marketing just ear by ear for a great beer, spiritual and poetic.

Flaska delad med Lilja och Vignale, från 2009. Brunmurken med liten beige krona. Ganska murrig arom med kola, dessertvin, övermogna äpplen, choklad, kakao, likörpralin, mörka körsbär och mörk torkad frukt. Ligger nära i smaken. Kroppen känner av lite lagring. Dock förvånansvärt mycket alkoholvärme kvar, och fortfarande lite spritsig - även om det är en del inslag av blöt kartong där med. Vissa smaker har utvecklats, men andra inte. Lite ojämnt utvecklad? Tveksam på om det skulle bli bättre av att stå längre? Sätter lite högre poäng än vad jag tycker att denna bör ha, med en mer färsk flaska i åtanke. surething_ii (801) - Šenkvice, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 16, 2017
Bottle from Pezinská pivná pumpa.
A lovely Q. It's actually a plum bomb and as I love Slovák plum "brandy" I only rate high. dynamiteninja (1890) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2017
Bottle. Medium off white heas. Dark body. Vomit, milk chocolate, malt, spice, hint of sulphur, dark red fruit, black malt. Bittersweet and sour. Dry finish. Full bodied. defabant (21) - ITALY - NOV 12, 2017
Un capolavoro di birra, sapore molto complesso con sentori di caffè e caramello. Retrogusto che lascia una piacevolissima sensazione anche dopo diversi minuti.
Il livello alcolico è abbastanza marcato, ma per nulla invadente.
