Appearance: Deep slightly hazy orange with a huge fluffy head of light tan foam that rapidly dissipates.

Smell: Alcohol and fruit, sugary malt notes.

Taste: Rich, deep maltiness right away, brown sugar, dried fruits, some grains, some spice-like notes help balance the malty sweetness, and the beer actually ends up finishing a bit on the dry side.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth, a bit of pep.

Overall: This was my first beer from Brasserie de Rochefort, and while I'm not absolutely blown away, I'm thoroughly impressed. I'll definitely be trying the Rochefort 6 and 10. Complex, interesting, and most importantly, delicious.
