4.28/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Trying to get into Belgian beers a little more. Just finished reading "Brew Like a Monk," which I found quite enlightening and really revealed the styles a lot more to me.

First in the trio, I figure I'll go from 6 to 10.

Poured into a tulip. Lots of carbonation initially that eventually settle down to a three-quarter inch head thats very light tan in color. That head floats atop a Mahagony colored body. Not much for lacing.

Aroma initially struck me with a good bit of fig, then some other fruity aromas come through, some cherry, raisin and apple with some hints of clove-like spices. Has an overtone of just a bit of leather too. Something in there reminds me of hot apple cider spices.

I really like the flavor on this one, has a lot more going on with it than the overly fruity flavors found in a lot of dark Belgians. Cherry, raisins, and some apple come through again and some light chocolate or bready characters that works well with the fruity tones. Again, a bit of spice throughout, but mainly fruit ester dominated. Hints of alcohol, but not harsh at all.

Has a touch of a sweet finish, and the body, while thin, coats the tongue well and give a feeling of more to this. Its thin but not watery.

I think this is a really good beer. I've never been a huge fan of Belgians, as I feel they all kinda taste the same, but this one is just a bit different. Quite nice.

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.
