A - Huge dark cream head that quickly dissipated, leaving little remaining head; it was a very bubbly disintegration. No lacing until the end of the beer. Beer is a dark brown and opaque from the side (but oddly very clear from the top), with tons of expected yeast floaties.
S - A little sour. Some dark fruit, but not much going on. I expected a much stronger aroma.
T - Very even and smooth. No hint of sourness (except the yeast remnants). Not as sweet as I expected: plum, raisin, candi sugar.
M - Relatively light and extremely drinkable. Coats the mouth very thickly. Medium feel, but light for a Dubbel. No sting or burn.
O - After falling in love with the 10, this wasn't exactly what I expected, but it was very tasty, very good, and very drinkable.

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.
