Poured into a snifter - Smelled like a basket of dark fruits.

Pours a deep brown with a nice off-white head that fades away with minimal lacing.

Taste had lots of sweet, dried dark fruit. Raisins and dates played biggest for me. No real hint of any hotness until the beer was about room temperature.

Mouth feel was smooth and balanced, not too thick, but also not too thin. Very balanced.

Overall this was a great beer that I would like to enjoy again.

the best of the three by far in my opinion. pours mostly clear copper orange color with a very vibrant just off white head with pretty solid retention. kind of looks like oatmeal on top, thick and starchy. the nose is mildly spicy from the yeast, notes of dried fruit and molasses as well. the taste gives more hints about the fruit, apricots, cherries, and raisins come to mind for me. the yeast is less spicy than the nose indicates, but its still got some exciting peppery wild funk to it. the mouthfeel is quintessentialy belgian. a little sugary, super carbonated, and exciting on the tongue. the caramel malt notes last well through the finish, and my only regret is that i didnt buy a couple of these. the alcohol is totally invisible, impressive! a beer that only gets more eventful as it warms up. a really world class exemplary product.

Specimen tasted was 2 months old.

Pours a dark brown. Small head that disappears very quickly, leaves just a small ring around the glass. Lots of bubbles in the glass.

Nose is caramel, sweet cake, some chocolate. After it's warmed up a bit some dark bread comes through, together with some fruit notes; maybe very ripe cherries?

Taste is caramel at first, brown sugar and some chocolate. Then there's some malt and bitterness which balances the sweetness really well. Definately feel some alcohol on the tongue. Later it gets more creamy, with light fruity notes.

Mouthfeel is fresh, not very heavy at all, lot of carbonation which fades after the glass is half empty.

Amazing beer. Though this one might be just a little bit to sweet for me. I'm normally not that big on beers with a lot of alcohol volume, but with this beer everything is well balanced and the alcohol doens't overpower at all. This would probably be better after it's aged a while longer though, this bottle is not as complex as the 8 I've had recently.

Pours a deep, deep brown (almost totally black) in my tulip glass with a nice off-white head.

Lovely, complex aroma of dried fruit.

Just great flavor, super complex, with lots of sweet, dried fruit mixing with alcohol. Cherries, dates, plums, raisins and more. Hints of chocolate. Wow. A rare 5 from me.

The body is also great: creamy and slick.

At almost $7 for a 11.2-ounce bottle, this is a rare treat. It lives up to its world-class reputation. A must-have.

11.2oz bottle into a tulip. Bottled 7/2011, so a bit more than a year old.

A: Pours a deep mahogany with a nice off-white head.

S: Yeasty and endlessly estery aroma. Raisins, grape juice, fruitcake spice, banana bread.

T: Booze-laced grape, dark grain, fig, brown sugar. Crisp and dry while retaining some pleasant sweetness from the candi sugar and malts.

M: Chewy with pervasive yet soft carbonation.

O: Reaches a really nice balance between dryness and sweetness.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass

Appearance - beautiful black with a big, thick tight foam head that's about 1/3 of the body size. Head gradually disintegrates to a pencil-sized thickness and remains.

Smell - Hints of caramel, refreshing milk chocolate aroma

Taste - same as smell but the caramel lingers.

Feel - Perfection from the absolute TINGE of a bite as it hits the tongue to the smooth crossing before it goes down

Overall - delicious beer. Lives up to the hype. Amazing drinkability for a ABV north of 11%.

Poured from bottle into glass as part of a Blind Taste test along side a Westy XII and Koningshoeven quad.

Appearance: Dark Brown with caramel hues. Lots of sediment. Good carbonation that lingers around as a thin froth.

Smell: Full caramel. Dark Sugar, even some plum notes with some other dark fruit.

Taste: Dark fruit. Dark Sugar. Toffe, a little plum and oak. More sweet than the westy XII. A small dose of heat from the alcohol. Not much from any esters but some great molasses notes.

Mouthfeel: Less carbonated than the Westy XII but with a thicker mouthfeel. Spreads nicely across the palate.

Overall: Very good. Almost feels fuller and more substandcial than the westy and La trappe. Very well refined. After a while the sugar makes it a little decadent. Better than the Westy in the initial flavor but a I could drink more westy than the Rochefort 10.

Color is like muddy coffee with solid head , reddish - brownish . Aroma is refreshing, bubblegum, cherries, fermented fruits, molasses, melon, extremely rich aroma. Taste is like melon, grape juice, warming alcohol. Palate is well balanced and smooth, no bitterness. Well deserved 100 out of 100.
