look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a rich brown with red highlights. A big, off-white head that lasts leaving me with the impression of cool-whip atop my beer.
Smell is sweet, sour, cherry, light apricot, oak, malt and thoroughly inviting.
Taste is even better than the nose with cherry, oak, malt, yeast, alcohol and eventually some hops.
Medium body, plentiful effervescence, warms the throat. An aftertaste that is reminscent of fruitcake with lingering cherry & brandy flavors though there was pine/resin up front. A very good brew, glad I finally got the Trappistes "trifecta".

I liked this one, worth every penny.

A: Dark orange and brown bodied brew that remained mostly opaque topped off with a large 2+ fingered head that settles slowly. A half fingered soapy film remains atop the brew throughout the tasting leaving some lacing in its wake.

S: Spicy notes accompanied by herbs to include cinnamon and cloves backed nicely with subtle sweet fruits.

T: Taste follows fairly closely to the smell, was surprised how well the ingredients flow on this one.

M: Highly carbonated, fairly dry, crisp with a nice burn from the booze.

O: A damn fine example of the style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip glass from a 11oz bottle. Freshness date is listed as 04/13/16.

Appearance: An astonishing reddish color that makes it look like cherry soda, with a big, frothy head that gives the impression of ice cream. If you aren't tempted by a beer that looks like this, that's a mighty shame.

Smell: A big, bold whiff of sugary, rum-coated raisins and dried fruits. The alcohol, just like Rochefort 10, is present, but not as overwhelming. There's a nutty, sweet aroma as well, which makes it a nice beer to sniff.

Taste: Extremely malty, and this seems to be the aspect for drinking this beer more than anything else. The nutty, raisin flavor seems to maintain the most throughout. There's a hoppy, slight sour (!) bite with it as well. A very tasty beer indeed - very strong yeast flavors here, so beware if you don't like it too yeasty.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, but enough balance with water and alcohol to make it a ridiculously easy drink. There's a slight bitter bite that makes it good. Very warming as I expected it to be. Very dry towards the end. Much easier to drink than Rochefort 10, but alas, not as fun.

Overall: Not as incredible as Rochefort 10, but still one of the top Belgian dark beers for sure. A welcoming, complex beer that is extremely easy to drink. All I need to do is try Rochefort 8 and see which one of these holds the longest redrinkability!
