It appears to be dark, dark brown on the pour, but there are red highlights if held up to the light. I was shocked by how much fizzy head gathered on top. The lacing was absolutely gorgeous, lasting throughout the drink, repeatedly coating the glass in new layers. There's a lot going on in the nose, with dark fruits leading the way. A definite note of alcohol too.
This is my 2nd time trying the brew, and I'm tasting the alcohol a lot more this time. In fact, that's the only thing keeping it from the five I gave it before the notebook was with me. There's a lot going on though, with the fruit and caramel tastes almost masking the alcohol. At this point, it tastes very good, but the Rochefort 10 that exists in my memory tastes slightly better, if that makes sense.
Creamy and sweet in the mouth, but with more carbonation than I expected. Still feels like a treat though. The ABV prevents me from downing several bottles, but boy, with that taste, I'd like to.
