Had 1-5-13 at Cafe Bruges (Carlisle, PA)
Wanted to revisit this one ever since we had it on Trappist Bier Night in May of '12. After sampling about 10 beers before we got to Rochefort, I got the sense that my palette had already been practically destroyed by the time we got to this delicious brew.
Love the look and smell of this beer: dark mahogany brown, with plenty of rich, dark fruits in the nose. Figs, raisins, and a little caramel mixed in with a hint of dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is out of this world: rich, creamy feel but the finish is actually drier than you might expect.
Paired this with a lamb burger, and I'm pleased I did. This is a "Telling Stories By a Brick Fireplace in the Dead of Winter with a Hearty Meat Dish" sorta beer. Distinct flavors score points here - blindfolded, I could pick this one out of a lineup. Also, insanely drinkable for 11%. A must-have, must-have-again Trappist.
