I poured this beer into a snifter style glass and immediately got about two fingers of foam. The foam dies down quickly into a thin scum. Off the top I smell a good dose of dark fruit and the yeast from the belgian source. It works out to be a very pleasant smelling rich beer. I recommend breathing this in as it warms.

The flavor is rich and powerful. The balance is really impressive. It makes for a very good sipper.

I really appreciate how a very high end beer is so readily available. These monks do an impressive job with their brews.

Pours a glowing golden amber, moderate bubble action. One finger off white head that takes time to receede. leaving a thick ring. The ring kind of cups the beer.

Smells of juicy dark dry fruit figs and dates, cherries, caramel malts and candy malts.

You can't go wrong with Trappist, Belgian beers. I mean, these guys basically invented craft beer, at least the Continental European styles. So maybe the blokes in Britain laid some groundwork too, but Belgium and Germany are like the Yankees and Red Sox of beer. Always good. Side poured from the bottle into a Boulevard snifter, standard vigor.

Appearance - Easily the most impressive part of this brew. Pours a deep brown, amber like color with a soapy, two finger head that piles on top of the beer like linemen on a loose ball. Really no head retention or lacing, but when you first pour that beer, it is awesome.

Smell - Big dark fruits right in your face. Musty, yeasty, Belgain excellence. Plums, grapes, figs, sweetness, raisins. Only thing to make it much better would be the smell of bacon.

Taste - Yummy dark fruits, an alcohol presence, malts. The malts come first and lay the groundwork for the sweetness and dark fruits afterwards. Dates, figs, prunes, raisins, all sorts of dark fruit wash the palate after the caramel maltiness. There is so much tasty sweetness, yet underpinned by a nice little alcohol pop.

Mouthfeel - Big time carbonation, finishes super crisp with lingering effects from the fruits and a little alcohol warmth.

Overall - Just like I thought, this was an excellent beer. I went into it expecting something good, and it did not disappoint. Condor recommended and approved, very good example of a good Belgian brew of any style. Those monks know what they are doing.

Pours a really nice red/orange color with a huge tan head. Really nice looking beer.

Smell is of malt, yeast, and a bit of spice, mainly a hint of clove and coriander.

Big amount of fruit up from, mainly citrus notes. That is followed by a peppery spice, bit of cloves, hint of orange peel. I am also detecting a bit of Belgian candy sugar, and it finishes with a hint of pepper.

Smooth and creamy feel to this.

Another very nice Trappist beer. Has a lot of flavor and a decent amount of complexity, I could easily drink more of this, but I only have one bottle. I love Trappist beers, and this one is no exception.

Bottled 12-28-11, poured into Rochefort chalice

A- one of the most beautiful beers I've ever seen. Rich red, orange, foamy white cap

S- typical of a dubbel- fresh fruits and yeast. lively

T- bitterness and cracker taste cover the tongue with love. breadiness, long finish- some warming as it goes down

M- highly carbonated, but perfect body and thickness

O- A must-try. Remarkable flavor for 7.5%. This stuff was gone faster than I thought it would be, and it was a great way to consecrate my Rochefort chalice. Another great beer from Rochefort.

A: Cloudy ruddy brown with an initial big foamy head, quickly fading to a small skim of bubbles. Not much lacing.

S: Sugar, strong over-ripe dark fruits, apples, some pungency. Rich and bittersweet.

T/M: A mix of sugary sweetness and pungent, bitter fruits. Pronounced yeasty finish, very heavy and thick.

O: A fine Belgian dubbel, strong and rich, rather bitter. Not as good as the 8 or 10, but still pretty tasty.
