Hazy brown with a small tan head. Aroma of overripe dark fruits, caramel, malt, toffee, dried fruits and brown sugar. Flavour is heavy sweet. Full bodied with light carbonation. Always a classic.
Bottled 22.06.2016, Sampled on october 15th , 2020. Always kept in my personal cellar (non wine cooler area) Pours a lighter, more clear, yet still very dark brown. Sediment has formed flakes. Foam is less stable, but still present for a while. Scent is a blast of fine port, dried dark fruits. heavy and complex. Taste is full, port, dried dark fruits, chocolate, a rediculously gentle yeast aroma, sweetness. Taste can create a heavy memory-throwback, and believe you me, beer can also create a feeling. How does a Rochefort 10 of 4 year old, served cellar temperature, perfectly aged féél ? Imagine a hug from your crush, for the first time ever. The perfect beer sure doesn't exist , but its laughable how freakin' close rochefort 10 comes. Bacth after batch, year after year. Available in all good bars, supermarkets, even nightshops (in BE ) for less money than your avarage, often dissapointing craftbeer.
Bottle. Pours a deep golden mahogany with a big creamy beige head. Aromas of dried sweet fruits, dark sugar, chocolate and slight nuts. Roasted malty taste with sweet fruits and yeast. Slightly alcoholic. Very soft carbonation. Not really worth 4.3 in my opinion but Trappists isn’t my favorite type of beer - at all.
330 ml 2016 bottle. Murky dark brown, big fluffy foamy head. Calvados, cognac, caramel, marzipan, dark chocolate, heavy red wine, booze. Malty sweetness, dry bitterness. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonated, dry finish. Great.
330 mL bottle from Whole Foods, poured into a snifter. Very dark reddish brown, with complex aroma and taste. Caramel malt and licorice nose, dark fruit boozy taste and finish. Impressive.
