Review from Old notes circa 2005

A: dark brown it is nearly the same color as the bottle it comes in, some lacing but not too much, a little cloudy and brown in color.

S: Its complex blend of sweet raisin/plum like malt and a slight hint of yeast and hops. You get a medium blast of alcohol. a hint of spice, very interesting and complex blend.

T: At first sip you get a warm back of throat feeling of alcohol. The bite of alcohol is very easy to handle. Main taste is the sugary malt blend that has highlights of plum/raisins, I detect some pepper, and some clove like flavors with some sweetness of the yeast blend.

M: medium to thick body, heavy finish, you know your drinking a strong brown ale, as it should be.

D: I almost always drink these as a flight, but I also when In Belgium to buy these buy the case for about a buck a pop, so I drank 3 or 4 in a row many times.

Rochefort and Orval are the 2 beers I buy for myself every time we land in Benelux area.
