4.18/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 33cl ml bottle into a chalice.

This is my first of the Rochefort series. This beer pours a nice mahogany reddish brown color with some nice carbonation streaming from the bottom. The head is off white, fluffy with big bubbles but recedes very quickly and leaves a few spots of bubbles on the top of the headless beer. Aroma is of nice caramelized figs, a bit of dark stone fruits and some nice raisin spicy like notes. Pretty complex and interesting. Perfect with my short ribs i prepared earlier. The taste is very similar to the aromas, a tad thin for me but very true to the style. The plum, fig and roasted caramel notes play nicely but its a touch thin for me so this feels a little fake. I also get a touch of grape, maybe some red wine like flavors. The mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, maybe a bit too over carbonated for me actually, but refreshing with each sip. The best part of this is that you can drink it slow and it will flatten out so it does get better. Overall this is a great beer. Nice addition of red meat dishes, grilled pork and even with some ice cream this would work. I would avoid fish, shellfish and poultry at all costs with this as its a strong flavored brew.

4.04/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served fairly cold into a wine glass, at the hotel after picking up a bottle last night. 330 ml bottle.

Appearance - nice coppery brown color in the light. A large two finger head is poured and subsides fairly quickly into some wispy foam. Plenty of sediment in the glass too.

Smell - lots of cherries melded in with Christmas baking, also a signature Rochefort smell, that's hard to describe, but the 10 has it as well. I Can smell that this is a boozy beer too. Some other dark fruits for good measure.

Taste - the cherries come through here again with some other dark fruit, maybe plums. Spicy taste at the end of the sip although the aftertaste doesn't last long. A bit of a soda-ish quality to it to in that the flavour just evaporates out of your mouth. The heat is a little more than I'd enjoy out of a dubbel.

Mouthfeel - spicy, finishes boozy and well carbonated throughout. Drier than expected finish. The alcohol has an incredible warming effect in the back of throat. Different than I was expecting but not unpleasant.

Overall - very good dubbel with absolutely wonderful aromatics. The rest of the beer was a bit of a letdown, but that's only when comparing with the magical 10 and 8. Still one of the best dubbels on the market and a must try for Belgian lovers.
