look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Appearance: Deep-dark reds and cherry with orange edging. The light brown/tan head was attractive and stuck around for a short while.
Smell: The smell of this beer is definitely intriguing and complex. It is the darkest Quadrupel I've ever had. Lots of raisins, figs, and other dark fruits on the nose. It's peppery, there's clove, and there's a rum-like background. I had to spend a few moments sniffing through this and doing my best to understand it. I don't think I was entirely successful.
Taste: Frankly it's just an amazing beer and the best of the Rochefort. It's very bold and highly complex. A beer you want to take your time with and sip carefully. I'm finding dark caramel, raisins, figs, cloves, anise, molasses, plum, and rum.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel was thick and well carbonated (appropriately so).
Overall: This is an absolutely outstanding beer that everyone should try at some point. I'm looking forward to future bottles and am happy to have a few in storage now.
Serving type: bottle
