I discovered this beer by accident about 2 years ago and haven't regretted it.

Pours a reddish brown with about half to 3/4 inch of creamy white head. poured into a Rochefort chalice(got it for christmas last year!)
Taste is of malty sweetness with cherries, raisins, and figs. a hint of spice. letting this beer warm and open up makes a word of difference to it's flavour profile(drank mine between4-6 C)
the carbonation is a nice mouth feel.
overall one of my favourite beers, I always have 2 bottles cellared for special occasions.
