AROMA: Very Unique; Gingerbread apricot, Apple.
LOOK: Dark Brown, Opaque, slight orange color. Sturdy head of small bubbles.
TASTE: Taste is comparably (to aroma) lacking. Some bread and earthy fruits, yeast.
FEEL: Excellent carbonation. Medium Body. Poured from a bottle in to a brandy snifter

A nice beer, but not even near the Rochefort 10. Funny though, I liked this better than the Rochefort 8.

Bottle BB 2/11/20; Reddish amber pour with fluffy white head. Beautiful belgian candy sugar nose with caramel, spice and fruity yeast aromas. The taste doesn't match that nose. The belgian candy sugars and stone fruits flavors are there but muted and a little watery. Ends with an astringent boozy finish. Light mouthfeel, a little watery. Soft pillowy carb. This is a good beer but I had very high expectations given how great their quad is.

Pours a sparkling brown with medium-large head that dissipates with only spotty lace. Nose is malt syrup, a bit of brown bread, marshmellow?, and actually some pleasant boozy notes. All of these were a bit weak at the beginning but come out more and more as the beer warms. Taste is similar but more towards the malt fruits. Even more than the nose, this improves as it warms and loses some carbonation. Simple at the beginning and a much richer flavor profile towards the end. Overall, a very good beer at the end...just don't drink this one too cold or you will be a little disappointed.

aged 3 and a half years but just past best by date. pours a cloudy (due to yeast sediment but not in clumps) amber brown with an off white head that dissipates quickly. the nose is caramel and toffee with earthy yeast esters. herbal hops and a soft presence of alcohol. medium body with a rich texture. carbonation and astringency are significant. flavor is a balanced combo of raisins, caramel and candy sugar sweetness supplemented by the bitterness. finishes dry as the astringency and bitterness fade.

It's a lot about nuts and a bit about banana and clove. This not too sweet in the taste and very dry almost tannic mouthfeel. It's an okay beer, maybe a good one to go with some food. It's very light for a 7.5% abv beer and no boozy at all. Still you can taste the historic craftmenship in that beverage

Serving: 12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau beer tulip.

Appearance: Slighty hazy tawny gold, increasingly cloudy towards the bottom of the bottle. Frothy, creamy head of tan foam and streaky lace.

Smell: Aromatic - caramel, honey and jasmine flowers. Slight estery alcohol.

Taste: Caramel malt body with fruit notes (plums, orange zest) and spicy Belgian yeast. Slight bitterness contributes balance.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light body with higher carbonation; semi-dry finish.

Overall: Great aroma; flavorful, malty and fruity.

Pours a hazy medium amber with off white head. Foam is frothy but quickly dies off with a slight ring that can be coerced with a swirl. Burnt orange on the nose with dark fruit in the background. Flavour is somewhat subdued but still lots of character. Finishes herbal with prickly carbonation
