11.2 oz brown bottle with a slim neck. Very sleek looking bottle. Traditional looking label. Poured into a chalice style glass.

A - murky light brown color. Very hazy appearance. Nice frothy head that is a dirty shade of white. Good loose lacing.

S - nice Belgian yeast aroma thats somewhat breach. Alcohol smells are present. Hints of dark fruits and some spices. Aroma is fruity and sweet.

T - nice fruity flavor although I expected more flavor. Dark fruit of maybe fig. Bread like malts with a breath yeast flavor. Slight hint of a nutty note. A little sweet along with some spice. Alcohol flavor isn't powerful, but is there. Fruity finish.

M - medium body with good carbonation. A bit lighter than I expected. Still enjoyably smooth with a dry finish.

O - a good brew. I would prefer it to be a little more flavorful as it seemed to be a bit watered down compared to some other Belgian strong dark ales.While it's a very very good beer it frankly isn't as flavorful as the Rochefort 8. Still good though. Ill experience this again.

Appearance is dark brown; somewhere between the color of cider and cola. It has a big fat white head that lasts with excellent lacing.

Nose has a lot of spicy yeast, with some dynamically sweet malt. There is also some dark chocolate and cola.

Taste is spicy with plenty of breadiness. Malts are subdued, with the yeast leading the way; with a mineral flavor. Mild alcohol finish and a syrupy-cola sensation, similar to most Belgian Strong Darks.

Mouthfeel is luxuriously creamy. Carbonation is medium, giving a refreshing balance and clean finish. Can't ask for much better mouthfeel.

Overall, it is a very good Belgian Strong with an excellent mouthfeel. It is not as dyanamic as the other Rocheforts, so no real "whoah" features other than the mouthfeel.

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.
