Poured slowly into a Trappistes Rochefort chalice. Deep brown with amber/red tones....similar to bottle brown. A thin beige head receded to a constant blanket. The glass produced a steady stream of fresh bubbles and foam to the center of the glass. Cloudy and attractive.
Fragrances were of sweet ripe dark fruits, brandy, some clove, brown sugar. Nice and complex with new features emerging as temperature changed. Some mineral coming forth at warmer temp.
Sweet dark fruits and sweet malts dominate the palate, with heavy dose of banana bread, malts, brown sugar and some alcohol warmth toward the end. Nice evolution of flavors.
Mouthfeel was well balanced, right amount of carbonation to scrub away any excess slick sugary residues. Long finish terminating in a brandy feel.
Overall, very nice. complex and well balanced. No single flavor is over the top leaving a nice balance to keep you sipping and searching for more.

A: Great red/brown color with white head. The red color to it is cery appealing.
S: Smells of raisins, molasses, and caramel. Very sweet smelling malts with a small about of alcohol smell to it. Not a very strong smell to me. Hard to detect smelsl in this one.

O: OVerall, this is a good beer. I enjoy it. Not my favorite style but I would recommend it.

33 cl bottle coded 141216. Aroma of caramel malts, raisins and dark pitted fruit. Taste is highlighted by molasses, raisins, candi sugar, brown sugar, slight cola. And of course that lovely rochefort trademark yeast esters. Delicious, beautiful, no abv noted on taste. A classic.
