4.65/5 rDev +3.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
From an 11.2 ounce bottle with a stamp that says "140715 07:38." Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A: Deep opaque brown with a thin tan head.
S: Very sweet, brown sugar and other sugars are huge in the nose, slight alcohol, and slight cocoa powder. This is very strong and a lot to take in at first, very thick smell even. I'm not used to this, but I'm becoming acquainted with it as I sip.
T: Very sweet and malty, there's a lot of brown sugar on the finish with a slight alcohol kick. Bready malts take the forefront with toasted notes throughout.
M: This is the thickest beer I've ever had, I feel like I need to chew it. There's a lot of carbonation as well, I can't tell if the body is foamy in my mouth or turning to a bread like feel. This is great though, but be sure to sip slowly it's very thick.
O: After being very underwhelmed with 6 and 8, this redeems the Rochefort name for me. This is a very thick, very sweet, downright intimidating beer. You need to take your time with this to fully enjoy it, from the intense scent to the intense flavor and mouthfeel, this is a beer you'll find yourself liking more and more each sip and wishing you had more when it's gone. I would love to try this with some cheese.
