11.2 ounce Euro bottle poured into a shaker pint glass.

Appearance - A rusty brown color. Hazy. Mondo head. Bitchin'!

Smell - Malty. Baking chocolate. Musty. A whiff of Belgian sour.

Taste - Malty. Baking chocolate. Herbal. Peppercorns. Slightly bitter. Slightly sour.

Mouth - Moderate carbonation. Moderate body. Silky.

Overall - This beer taste great! The combination of bread, sweet, bitter, and spice is both unique and amazing. I could chug multiple Rochefort 8s if it weren't for the high alcohol content and even higher cost.

330ml bottle poured into a snifter

P- murky brown, with no translucence; 1f of off-white head, that recedes to a small foam cap within a couple of minutes; lots of yeast chunks noticed at the bottom of the glass
N- bold brown sugary sweetness paired with dark fruit notes (black cherries come to mind), all over bready malt; pleasant and inviting
T- follows the nose; brown sugar up front, sweet dark fruits mid-palate, and a chewy yeasty finish, with moderate alcohol presence; solid bready malt backbone; very well-balanced
MF- medium-full bodied with medium carbonation; silky smooth and creamy
O- a great example of the style!
