Poured from a bottle into a beautiful signature Trappistes Rochefort chalice. The pour is a clear, very dark reddish brown color with a thin creamy-looking head. The nose is faint, but gives fresh and dried fruit, sweet berries, and some wine-like notes.

The taste was a bit unexpected. I expected something a bit sweeter. The beer has a medium to full body and very lively, zippy mouthfeel from high carbonation. On the front of the palate I get bready, biscuity flavors. At mid-palate some fruit notes come in and the high carbonation makes the flavor seem drier and more delicate than it actually is. At the back of the palate, more fruity, jammy flavors develop. The flavor is sweet, but never syrupy or cloying. It is more subtle and well-balanced. As the beer warms a bit and loses some carbonation, the sweet fruit flavors start to linger a bit more on the finish.

An outstanding beer. Fruity and slightly sweet, but perhaps the flavor is not quite strong enough to support the high carbonation. Nevertheless, it is a world classic.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a pint glass. Yes, a pint glass.

A- hazy medium-dark brown color with a mega head that melts down to a nice thin mocha cream layer with a bit of lacing. This beer can be called many a different color when moved about in the lighting.

S-like a loaf of freshly baked bread, very malty with a hint of fruit and alcohol.

T-for all that malt aroma, there is flavor from some dark fruits and a slight hop bitterness to balance those malts nicely.

M-body galore, it tingles the lip and tongue right away. The carbonation is visibly disguised by the beer's appearance yet easily detectable upon drinking.

O-I can't identify the dark fruits that I taste but I know that i like them. This is one real beer. Smooth and flavorful @7.5% is no easy task.

330ml bottle poured into a goblet.

A:
Slight hazy brown with an orange amber hue, one finger of light off-white head quickly vanishes to some foamy films on top. There is not much lace. Carbonation is actively high.

S:
Some dark fruits, mild phenol, floral, malty like dark bread, candy sugar like caramel, there is also a hint of slight roasted.

T:
Leading by fruity ester, sugary and malty sweet, grip of phenol reveals afterwards along with pleasant hop bitterness and somewhat burnt.

M:
Light to medium body, velvety smooth with fine amount of crisp and carbonation wrap up the palate, rather dry finish.

O:
Harmoniously well round balance, lively but not too harsh, very drinkable of course.

My reward after a weekend of chores around the house!

Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a goblet. Pours an opaque, silty brown, with a starter head of tan bubbles that quickly fizz off, leaving a few islands of thin wispy head.

Has a rich, complex aroma, with buttery toffee/buttercotch, hints of alcohol, dried figs and dates, and a slight tanginess.

Quite tasty, this ale starts with a warm toffee/scotch flavor, followed by banana, sweet fig, and a tanginess that is hard to tell if it is the taste, or an effect of the feel of this beer. Finishes smooth, leaving an aftertaste of an echo of grapes.

Medium bodied, with a softer feel contrasted against a tangy, carbonated feel that hits mid-tongue. The finish is a bit dry.

A very nice tasting beer, it has lived up to its hype. One I will definitely be having again.

Bottle dated 280114. Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a chalice. It pours hazy brown due to sediment with a frothy white head. The head quickly dissipates and leaves a little bit of white head on the top. Bubbles can be seen meeting the head, indicating high carbonation. The aromas of caramel, fig, roasted malt, and Belgian yeast hit the nose. I can also detect a small amount of alcohol. The taste is sweet, but not too sweet. The flavors of caramel and fig go a long way towards covering up the alcohol content, but the faint taste of alcohol is there. The mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation and a dry finish. The carbonation prepares you for the next drink. This is very easy to drink. Overall, this is an outstanding beer.

Enjoyed this 11.2oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pour a very hazy brown hue with a thick, frothy, 2-finger, whitish head that slowly dissipates in to a wispy lace.

S: Scents of caramel and dark fruits. Belgian yeast aroma in the background.

T: More fruity than expected – mostly dark fruits with a nice alcoholic twang.

M: Medium body and high carbonation.

O: Another excellent brew – all three I tried, 6, 8,10 were exceptionally. Really enjoyed drinking these brews.
