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

Appearance: Deep nutty brown color with a fizzy tan head.

Aroma: Bready malt, dried fruits, hint of alcohol.

Taste: Very complex and robust. Dark malt, plum, raison, cocoa bean, and molasses. Each flavor surfaces and then disappears again between the first half and the second half. This is a beer that commands your attention as you drink. The chocolate becomes more pronounced later on. There is a hint of alcohol on the palate and a gentle warming effect but otherwise I wouldn't know this was 11.3% ABV. Almost no bitterness and an extra burst of concentrated caramel flavor in the finish. There was an ounce or so left in the bottle so I just poured the rest into the glass. The added yeast gives it a slightly more bitter aftertaste and a hint of sourness. Still a great beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with above average effervescence (exactly what is expected for the style). Real smooth and creamy despite the carbonation.

Final Thoughts: After drinking Trappistes Rochefort 10 it's no wonder why this beer is so highly acclaimed. The robust palate and drinkability speak for themselves. At $7.99 for an 11.2oz bottle it's not exactly a steal, but it's worth the price for those who seek the best things life has to offer. Would I drink it again? Yes, when I'm in the mood for a robust palate punching experience.

11.3 ml bottle into a snifter

A: Pours a hazy dark amber color with two fingers of off white head. Retention is very good. A film of head sticks around throughout the beer.

S: Lots of dark fruit - I get prunes, plums, and dried apricots. It's really like an assortment of dried fruits in a pungent, sugary way without being light or juicy. Behind the fruit, I get clove and a bit of licorice. The aroma is pretty complex and intense.

T: Intense dried fruit starts off again, though the flavor is a bit more muddled than the amazing aroma. I'm having a bit of a harder time distinguishing specific fruits. The flavor is certainly more burnt than the aroma, I get burnt sugars with prunes. Spice is a bit more subdued than the aroma, I get a bit of clove. Booze is quite evident but not overpowering, and the finish and aftertaste is strong dried dark fruits and a bit of licorice.

M: Medium mouthfeel with creamy carbonation.

O: The aroma on this beer is amazing - near perfect. So complex, so intense, i was impressed. The flavor is nice, but a bit muddled and a bit sharp. The finish is a bit harsh.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours hazy, deep brown with lots of sediment. One finger of silky, off-white head. Nice head retention and lacing.

S: Sweet, dark fruits (raisins, plums,  figs, cherry), biscuit, spice, alcohol and belgian yeast.

T: The taste is complex and consists of big bready and vinous notes, dark fruit, nuts and alcohol. Alcohol is pronounced, but very smooth, balanced and drinkable.

M: Creamy, medium-heavy mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

O: The alcohol peeks through a bit more than I would like, but overall it's a great beer. It's also easily accessible, so bonus points for that.
