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

Poured into a tulip glass.

A - has a deep cherry mahogany look that I am a really big fan of, head dissipates quickly, almost no lacing

S - smells almost entirely like wine, very fruity, and a hint of floral

T - tastes like a high sugar content wine with strong fig notes. Also, tastes like a toasted sugar glaze with a strong sweet finish. I also get hints of oak and a strong molasses taste.

M - light mouth feel with light carbonation

Overall - I wish I liked figs because this would be my favorite beer if I did. I thought it was an exceptional Belgian ale and was a pleasure to drink, I recommend it.

Bottle to Goblet
11.2 oz

Purchased from Bevmo, Chino Hills for $5.49

App- Its very caramel in color. Didnt remember that from the 1st time I had it. The density is there with a good bit of haze and sediment. The head was off white and huge, but faded so quick. Maybe a couple dots of cling.

Smell- I am sorry, but this is not a BSDA. This is a dubbel. It was far to raisin and plum and sugary. Lacked a potent malt/yeast combo for me. Wasnt offensive just lacking.

Taste- I really thought it was lacking the soul of a BSDA. This was a dubbel all the way. More brown sugar, raisins and plums without backing notes to put it over the top. The ABV seemed a bit lacking and thin for style if so.

Mouth- It was a nice medium body with a medium carbonation. Dont let the bubbles fool you. The residual flavors are brown sugar and caramel.

Drink- Probably my least favorite of the Rocheforts. Had to review all 3 though. I need to buy more 10 to sit on.

4.13/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

11.2 oz bottle into a Hoffman House chalice. Date code is best before 08-09-15 at 10:04, indicating this was made in 2010 and should be in its prime.

A: Dark red to light brown with unusually soda-like carbonation with large bubbles that immediately fall into the beer leaving no head. Very disappointing appearance for a trappist ale at 7.5%.

S: Aroma immediately hits upon opening the bottle, plum and dark fruits with a deep malt nose.

T: Deep matliness, brown sugar and subtle cola-like esters. Very pleasant and complex.

M: The appearance contrasts to the rich and creamy mouthfeel.

O: Excellent beer - would be rated higher if not for the head and lacing problem. Perhaps I will re-evaluate with a different bottle at a later time.

Pours out with an explosive head formation, so I have to slowly pour it. Eventually it settles out to a thick cream sitting atop a dark leather brown body. Looks lovely in my Orval chalice.

Aroma is bready, fruity, sweet…candied fruit, molasses, brown sugar, hint of clove, dough, yeast. Lots.

So smooth for 7.5%. And sweetness is kept in check with a light, dry finish. A rich, malty ale with spice notes and even a slight tart edge to it. Body is classic Belgian bottle-conditioned. Feels like I’m drinking velvet. Finish has a strong chocolate note, and maybe dates as well.

I shouldn’t have waited so long to try this. Considering its price, it's not something I will have often, but when I do, it will certainly be a treat.
