Bottle on sale at whole foods poured into a tulip
A- lots of effervescence reddish brown murky color with a fine tan head that dissipates to a thin layer just on top. bubbles up through solution like a champagne
S- yeasty, definite bread, prune, fig even some dark stone fruit. slightly sourdough bread.
T- slight toffee, whole wheat bread , peppery, a little gram cracker in the finish. very low hop character. Some warming alcohol but it isn't harsh.
M- even with all the bubbling this is a little dryer than expected.
O- I could see myself enjoying this beer with a steak, I would like to try the 12. Not an everyday drinker but I could definitely enjoy this on a rainy day.

4.04/5 rDev -2.7%

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.
