look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 330ml to a Tulip

A- murky brown w/ floaties, 1/4" off white head

S- citrus, spice, caramel, apple cider, earthy, orange, roasted nutty malts

T- awesomely follows the nose, the apple is very tart

M- medium to creamy, high carbonation, acidic apple tartness tingles and curls the tongue

O- my favorite rochefort yet! Nutty, and fruity, and earthy, it's perfect for this time of year! The only negatives i can think of is the almost nonexistant head and the high crispy carbonation. Other then that, she's glorious.

Poured from a 11.2oz bottle into a tulip.

A: pours a deep brown with a slightly ruby hue, with an aggressive finger and a half of slightly brown head. Settles to a 3/4 finger head that remains through out.

S: the aroma is remarkable subtle and remarkably pleasing at the same time. Light dark fruits, particuarly rasin, brown sugar, light citrus sweetness, apple. Very nice.

T: yum, this is really tasty, taste is much like I described in the aroma, a nice bright citrusy sweetness, brown sugar, caramel, some light notes of dark fruit, an almost cherry note, a bit more apple then i got in the aroma. very delicious

M: light medium body with moderate effervescent carbonation, nice lush mouthfeel.

O: this is a great beer, well rounded, delicious, great mouthfeel, can't ask for much more.

Can't belive I never reviewed this. Someone strip me of my "I wanna be a monk" card. Pours dark brown with a very noisy, frothy light tan head that settles quickly without much lace. Smell is caramel malt, some citrus fruits, and a hint of wood. Taste is plums, followed by a dry woodiness. There is some citrus up front but when the wood hits....this just sounds wrong somehow...it dries out completely. The finish is dry and a touch sharp. IMHO it is a perfect example of what a dubbel tastes like. The mouthfeel is aggresively carbonated and seems a bit lighter than you'd expect from the taste or the look. Overall, its fantastic. It's only held back by the yeast strain constantly reminding me of the 10, which has the same flavor notes but more complexity. But this is a great, great example of the style.

330ml bottle into goblet.

A - Rich amber brown with a titanic off-white head.

S - Subtle dark fruit, spicy Belgian yeast, bread.

T - Bready malts and light dark fruit (plum, raisin) up front. Brown sugar, tangy yeast, and nutty flavors throughout. The finish brings in spice, fig and toasted malt.

M - Light-medium body. Creamy, silky smooth and refreshing. High carbonation, slightly dry finish.

O - A light, extremely drinkable Belgian ale. The flavors blend together quite nicely, and the alcohol is masked very well. Subtle yet complex.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a coppery brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains apples, Belgian yeast, caramelized malts, some spice and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with mildly sweet flavors of caramel, apples, brown sugar and some spice. Then some breadiness from Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character comes in. The hops presence is very mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium-to-high carbonation, slightly sticky finish.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent Belgian beer, but I didn’t think it was anything special.
