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

330ml bottle, best before 14/09/10.

pours a deep reddish orange with a big fluffy tan head. the head drops slowly and leaves some chunky lace behind.

aroma is nice. alcohol. date. bit of raisin. dried cherry. light anise. yeasty spice. bready malt. bit of toasted character.

taste is good. alcohol. dark fruit - raisin and date. bit of dried cherry too. lightly toasty. bittersweet chocolate. yeast. bit of spice. bread and cracker malts.

mouthfeel is good. medium-low bitterness level. medium body.

drinkability is good. i really love all the fruit. well balanced. a really great beer. i think this is my favourite of the rochefort lineup.
