A few years ago I had all three of the Rochefort's and well, did not like them. For some odd reason I didn't write any notes on the 10 so here I am giving this another shot, after a few hundred (thousand?) different beers I may have developed more of a palette for this one. We shall see.

Served in a Chimey glass.

Pours a dark brown color, leaving a near black but not fully black body, a decent head forms full of tiny extremely compact bubbles, that quickly leaves and leaves marginal lacing and a tan film over the body of the beer. Swirling leaves carbonation that slowly drizzles down back into the glass, nothing staying on the glass itself.

Bitter/sour notes give way to dark fruits and subtle dark malt aromas. I am having a hard to placing any of these aromas. There is a vanilla creamy caramel effect (sounds too American to be right) that subdues the fruit aromas and leaves me a bit in the dark here.

Opening with a sweet yet sweet even till nearly the back of the tongue cream candy caramel chocolate type malt/yeast flavor. The flavors are very cream like at the front of the tongue and darker and deeper towards the back, finally finishing with a bitter hop kiss. This is amazing candy like in natures. I fully understand why I disliked this in the past. I disliked this in the past, it is just simply too sweet. It is like a glass of amazing candy/alcohol. I have apparently become far too much of a gluten because today I'm rather impressed by this tasty treat.

D. There is still a hell of an alcohol kick to open this bad boy. I worry that the subtle hops to finish it will leave forever if I were to age a bottle too long. The flavors mix so well that I would fear age simply dulling the intense flavors present. Not sure the age with 280415 written on the bottle. One would assume that's the best by, but I don't know how many years they claim this one lasts.

M Creamy, thick, smooth and just wonderful. I could use a bit of a bit from hops, can't lie, but just wonderful stuff.

This is a treat to say the least. Looks like 6 and 8 need to be re-reviewed, hell I might give Chimay Blue a shot....though I found it unimpressive fairly recently.
