Had this at L'autre-oeil in Gatineau, QC.
A: Poured a light-brown with reddish hues with half a finger of head into a chalice. The beer looks very lively with a healthy rush of bubbles rushing continuously to the top. The head retention is great.
S: Aromas of sweet grapes and a tad of dark fruits. Very pleasing.
T: Molasses and brown sugar are the dominating flavors. There is also an earthy character. The taste was good but it felt like something was missing. It just never took off.
M: Very smooth and kinda thick with appropriate low carbonation.
D: This is almost too easy to drink. The alcohol is perfectly hidden.
Overall, this was interesting although not as impressive as it's 8 and 10 siblings. It felt a bit unidimensional.

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.
