Enjoyed in a snifter
A: Pours a very deep brown that is fully hazy and does not allow even the smallest amount of light to permeate, pours with three fingers of extremely fine head that is medium tan in color and lingers very nicely, leaves a large amount of lacing on the glass
S: woody and musty in a very nice way, kind of like a favorite blanket from when you were a kid
T: oh yea, this is a quad, licorice lingers on the mouth afterwards after coming in mid sip, definitly has a slight alcohol tinge in the taste but not off putting, just enough to remind you that it is there, taste begins with something kind of sweet but in a deep way, kind of like caramelized sugar
M: very slight alcohol burn, medium carbonation, smooth and leaves the mouth feeling slightly burnt but in a way that induces salivation
O: a real nice brew, tastes great, appearance is spot on, from my experience the wonderful monk over at rochefort really just make beers that are spot on for the style, real nice job here

Much like the Chimay line of beers, and other Trappist brews, the blasé appearance of the bottle belies the complex flavor that lies within. It smells heavily like sugar, probably brown, and anise seed. It tastes heavily fruity, like a carbonated brandy, and is very yeasty. Goes pretty well with some Machego cheese and some hard salami. It's also got a pretty high alcohol content, around 11%, but the kick's somewhat delayed as it's just so darn tasty and toasty you don't really notice the wallop it packs 'til later.
