4.24/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

11.2 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a murky brown color. The head is a two finger white shade, looking a bit rough in texture. Retention isn't very good, though it does seem to settle at being a thin film instead of fading completely.

S: There's really a lot going on in this one - raisins, plums, currants, cherries, caramel, brown sugar, apple, white grapes, chocolate, and some savory spices. Not as sweet as the 8 or 10, yet nearly as complex.

T: At first, pleasant tartness from cherry and apple esters graces the palate. Afterwards it develops caramel and brown sugar flavors. The distant aftertaste has a spicy, herbal quality to it, seemingly from hops. I also note dark chocolate, tobacco, and some mild dark fruits. This isn't the most eye-popping of brews; rather it's elegant, subtle, and deep. I'll take that over a big, brash monster any day.

M: It's not that rich or creamy, instead featuring an airy, slightly refreshing feel. Plenty of yeast astringency and carbonation is there to tickle the tongue. I kind of like the focus on drinkability here - it goes down more easily than the other two Rocheforts.

O: What else can be expected here? It's definitely the lightest of the Rocheforts and knows this fact; yet it can easily stand toe to toe with the other two in terms of complexity. Just another excellent trappist offering, really.
