11.2oz Bottle from Whole Foods Las Vegas for 5$

Appearance - Hazy brown colour with an average size fizzy beige coloured head. It's too hazyto make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for 4-5 minutes.

Smell - Malts, breads/grains, raisins, corn

Taste & Mouth - There is a high amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, grapes/raisins, and some corn. There is also some caramel and a bit of a woodiness. It ends with a malty dark fruit aftertaste,

Overall - A light and very drinkable beer given the ABV. It might be just a touch too carbonated but the tastes are well balanced and you can taste the quality ingredients. The Rochefort 10 is still my favourite by a mile though.

Best before 2015.

This thing looks amazing. Deep mahogany body. Slightly off white ring fed by a steady stream of bubbles.

Smell is loaded with sweet dried cherries. Booze laden dry cherries. Sweet in the best way. smells almost slick.

I was hoping for a syrupy sweet, slick, boozy BDSA, but it wasnt. It starts off with a peppery belgian yeast. Full bodied, yet not full of flavor. Its a mild beer for sure. I do get some nice semi sweet dark fruits later (mostly cherries) a bit later.

All in all, a fantastic beer that still has room to improve!

11.2oz bottle served in a trappistes rochefort chalice.

pours a murky brown tone with maybe a finger of a beige colored head that dissipates faily quickly; significantly weaker retention than i remember from the others in the family... lacing is good, but also not quite as impressive as its brethren. that all said, still an appealing BSDA.

the aroma fills your nostrils and you know you're smelling a rochefort. that familiar combination of their yeasts, caramel malt, dark fruit, spices, and alcohol is unmistakable. again, not quite as robust as say the 10, but very good. flavor profile follows the nose pretty closely. some bitterness in the finish.

medium bodied mouthfeel, medium, prickly carbonation. very drinkable. flavorful and complex, and although it doesn't quite have that palate arousing oomph of its elder siblings, you have to judge it against all BSDAs, not just in terms of the 8 and 10. a stellar beer.

11.2oz bottle (best by 03/10/2015) into a chalice. Pours a clear amber w/ thin off-white head, some suspended sediment, lively carb.

Aroma is bright and fruity. Raisins, plums, figs and sweet candi sugar.

Taste is likewise on the sweet side. Dark fruits, bready malt, light brown sugar, Belgian yeast. Really subtle balance between outstanding malt and yeast.

Mouthfeel is smooth and soft, as expected from Rochefort. Evaporates over the tongue on the finish. Bottle conditioning clearly evident.

Overall a very solid beer. From another brewery this might be a flagship. But it pales in comparison to Rochefort's other offerings.

Bottle into Rochefort chalice.

Looks like a dark cream soda. The head violently bubbled away as quickly as I could pour. A light tan head dissolved almost entirely before my first sip.

Smells of some caramel malt, sweet bready malt note, some ginger root, big Belgian yeasty vibe, and some dark fruits like plums and/or raisins.
The flavor is much the same with a touch of an earthiness to boot.

Feels a little overcarbonated, and therefore a little thin as a result.

Overall-- meh. I've had many better Belgian Dark Ales. This one is unimpressive to me.
