4.35/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Deep nutty brown color with a fizzy tan head.

Aroma: Bready malt, dried fruits, hint of alcohol.

Taste: Very complex and robust. Dark malt, plum, raison, cocoa bean, and molasses. Each flavor surfaces and then disappears again between the first half and the second half. This is a beer that commands your attention as you drink. The chocolate becomes more pronounced later on. There is a hint of alcohol on the palate and a gentle warming effect but otherwise I wouldn't know this was 11.3% ABV. Almost no bitterness and an extra burst of concentrated caramel flavor in the finish. There was an ounce or so left in the bottle so I just poured the rest into the glass. The added yeast gives it a slightly more bitter aftertaste and a hint of sourness. Still a great beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with above average effervescence (exactly what is expected for the style). Real smooth and creamy despite the carbonation.

Final Thoughts: After drinking Trappistes Rochefort 10 it's no wonder why this beer is so highly acclaimed. The robust palate and drinkability speak for themselves. At $7.99 for an 11.2oz bottle it's not exactly a steal, but it's worth the price for those who seek the best things life has to offer. Would I drink it again? Yes, when I'm in the mood for a robust palate punching experience.

11.3 ml bottle into a snifter

A: Pours a hazy dark amber color with two fingers of off white head. Retention is very good. A film of head sticks around throughout the beer.

S: Lots of dark fruit - I get prunes, plums, and dried apricots. It's really like an assortment of dried fruits in a pungent, sugary way without being light or juicy. Behind the fruit, I get clove and a bit of licorice. The aroma is pretty complex and intense.

T: Intense dried fruit starts off again, though the flavor is a bit more muddled than the amazing aroma. I'm having a bit of a harder time distinguishing specific fruits. The flavor is certainly more burnt than the aroma, I get burnt sugars with prunes. Spice is a bit more subdued than the aroma, I get a bit of clove. Booze is quite evident but not overpowering, and the finish and aftertaste is strong dried dark fruits and a bit of licorice.

M: Medium mouthfeel with creamy carbonation.

O: The aroma on this beer is amazing - near perfect. So complex, so intense, i was impressed. The flavor is nice, but a bit muddled and a bit sharp. The finish is a bit harsh.

4.43/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours hazy, deep brown with lots of sediment. One finger of silky, off-white head. Nice head retention and lacing.

S: Sweet, dark fruits (raisins, plums,  figs, cherry), biscuit, spice, alcohol and belgian yeast.

T: The taste is complex and consists of big bready and vinous notes, dark fruit, nuts and alcohol. Alcohol is pronounced, but very smooth, balanced and drinkable.

M: Creamy, medium-heavy mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

O: The alcohol peeks through a bit more than I would like, but overall it's a great beer. It's also easily accessible, so bonus points for that.

Poured from a fairly fresh 11.2oz bottle into a Duvel snifter. This review is biased as this is my favorite beer.

A- pours a beautiful deep deep red/brown. A one finger white head that falls after a minute and leaves a layer over the top the entire time.

S- DARK FRUIT. Dried figs, plums, cherries, and a slight alcohol warming. The alcohol does not make it apparent in a noticeable way, but it does provide a warming in the aroma. It's a comfortable aroma. Belgian yeast, too.

T- follows the nose well. Chocolate covered cherries (the liquid kind with the alcohol). Fills the whole body with it's flavor. LOOOONG finish. The alcohol makes itself known in the warming but not the flavor. Rich beer.

M- Full. Perfect carbonation. Silky smooth. Leaves pockets of flavor in your mouth for you to find.

O- Amazing. About as close to perfection as you can get. A true beer of beers. Something I could drink for years and never get bored.
