UPDATED: JUL 1, 2009 This thing is a religious experience. I prefer it to the ten, I find it more balanced and 3-dimensional. On the one hand: This thing was all soft edges, slick in the mouth, soft rich maltiness, pruneau or something, a little bit of smooth (debittered) chocolate. On the other hand: very spicy and dry, with a firm bitterness. Unmasked hot alcohol, at one moment even too much; very warming, with phenols reminiscent of spicy cinnamon (pungent cinnamon, not powdered) and even cardamom. Oh my god. I expect the people I was staying with thought I was crazy. I was doing stuff like sniffing my sleeve to clear my nose, swirling it and covering the top to collect volatiles, rolling it around my mouth. Neither of them wanted any (!!). The 33cl at 9.3% is the perfect amount of this beer, it’s exactly enough to experience it. So if you’re holding onto one of these - don’t share.
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2017 Aroma - medium, complex and rich, with lot of rotten/fermented fruits, flowers, caramel, malt and belgian yeasts, all diluted with alcohol. Taste - intense, rich and very pleasant, sweet to a minimum with some slightly fermented fruits, caramel and dark honey, over medium carbonation, a bit of bitterness, some spices and a bit of alcohol in the final and aftertaste. Very good, balanced and a true trappiste beer. loscovar (348) - Villeneuvette, FRANCE - JUL 23, 2017

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2017 Oklar brunorange med beige tunn skumkrona. Doftar lite fruktigt, sött och malt. Smaken fyllig, lite söt och besk. Eftersmaken lång, maltig, lite besk med karamell på slutet. Ingen alkoholsmak trots 9,2%. shawnmurphy (495) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2017
12-ounce bottle pours hazy brown-ruby with tan head and lacing. Aroma: dried dark fruits, brown sugar. Flavor: malt-forward; figs, dates, plums, nuts, molasses bread. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied. You can’t go wrong with Trappistes Rochefort 6, 8 or 10 -- all world class beers! Michael27 (1986) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2017
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Dunkelbraun mit viel Schaum im Glas. Ein süßlicher Malzteppich überdeckt den Alkohol. Brettsky06 (445) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 2, 2017
Dark brown pour. Long lasting beige head. Dark fruit aromas and taste. Some figs and booze also in the taste. Strong tasting but not overpowering. Nicely balanced ironcontra (312) - POLAND - JUN 28, 2017
Another knockout from the brewery, figs, fruits, caramel, bubblegum, but overall very rounded, not tiring or diabetic
