330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a fair head and reasonable lacing. The aroma is malt, banana, caramel. The taste is medium sweet with a grassy and peppery finish. davidf93 (112) - Stellenbosch, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 17, 2017
Light brown red colour. Brandy grapes notes. Light bitter taste, light caramel malts. tekstr1der (482) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 15, 2017
Hazy dark copper with lasting cap of off-white foam, looks as good as I’m hoping. Aroma is malt-forward with just a hint of spice and Belgian yeast influence. Rich malty flavors of molasses bread and mellow sweetness of dark fruits that’s just so another-level better than any of the best dubbels I’ve ever had. Silky smooth and no hint of booze, easily my favorite of the style. basjansen14 (366) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2017
Amber coloured beer with a nice herbal aroma and a nice fruity taste with some herbal notes as well.

Pours with a huge head with great lacing - marvellous appearance. Aromas are predominantly floral with fruity tones, very nice. What this beer excels in is in the flavour profile: earthy, but not musty, rich herbal, dry, beautiful flavours... but alcohol is fairly present and ends up being a bit drilling after a while. However, even then it still is very good. Nice medium body with just the right amount of hoppiness; oily texture, clear finish. Thumbs up.

Bottle @ The Capital. Medium brown, reasonable head, matching glass is nice. Mild leafy caramel aroma. Earthy marzipan caramel flavour. Sharp with spicy caramel aftertaste. Not really my thing. Demens (425) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 10, 2017
0,33l bottle. Hazy hazelnut-brown colour with long lasting small creamy beige head. The center of the goblet was bubbling all along. Aroma: Caramel, wine, matured cheese. Taste: Sweet rich malty/grainy start with a soft bitter mouthfeel with a light tarty tone. Has a cognac-like caracter with a noticable alcohol presence. Has a very creamy texture. (with a flourish/dough taste) Medium body with soft carbonation. Long lightly dry bitter/sweet finish. Malin_aiisa (1130) - SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2017
Amber, offwhite head.
Aroma of malt caramel alcohol
Taste sweet malt. Slight thin feel. Hint of dried fruit, like raisin. Evilman (236) - Taverny, FRANCE - MAR 6, 2017
Without any surprise, this is a lovely one. I only experienced the 10 one before and had high expectations for the two others and I wasn’t disappointed. Very smooth, almost creamy, rather low alcohol level for a trappist beer but a great and easily distinguishable oak aroma. Almost on the same level with the 8 one I tried just after, a great combination with the whole Rochefort set. Maybe lacks a deeper aftertaste, found in the 8 one and even deeper in the 10. Obviously APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW! EvNa (303) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2017
Bottle. Color: Reddish brown. Dense off white head. Taste: Medium sweet ripe red fruits, hints of yeast and sugar and notes of caramel and almond. Pretty much carbonation. Overall a nice fruity beer to enjoy.
