A- Dark dark brown on the verge of black. One finger tan head. Moderate head retention and pretty good even lacing.
S- Spicy yeast and some booze. Sweet dark fruit (mostly cherry) character and some earthy tones. The yeast is the overwhelming aspect of the aroma, but it is pretty solid overall.
T- Awesome. Spicy yeast, rich dark fruit (lots of cherry and raisins), bold oaky characteristics and some booze. There is a wonderful wine-like flavor to this beer. It has an abundance of dark fruit flavors with oak barrel and even some tannins. Really amazingly complex taste. So deep.
M- Smooth. Pretty highly carbonated, but it goes well with the flavor.
O- Exceptional beer. Really, really phenomenal. There isn't much I can say about this beer that hasn't already been said, so suffice it to say that I agree with most of the good stuff.

4.4/5 rDev -2.4%
Poured from a 11.2oz glass into a chalice.
A: Very dark, hazy brown with a 1-finger head that slowly falls to a 1/8" head that lingers for a long time.
S: Unique aroma of black licorice, brown sugar, figs, and tropical melon.
T: Complex. Sweet dried fruit, rich sweet malt, some spice/yeast to round things out. Possibly the most balanced Quad I've had to date.
M: Silky smooth, medium-bodied. Enjoyable. Over 11% abv but you can't taste it at all- perfectly integrated.
O: This is one to just sip slowly and ponder while you do so. Very enjoyable and very well made.

A: pours an opaque black brown, with some floaties in it, in to a Brewers Art goblet with a finger of tan head that hangs around for a long time and leaves beautiful lacing.
S: leather, sweet fruits, figs, grapes, plums, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, apples.
T: mirrors the nose well. The complex sweetness is amazing; from fruits like plums, apples and dates to sugary sweetness like caramel, candi sugar and dark brown sugar. There is some spice that balances it beautifully.
MF: the spice adds astringency, its got a great medium body with a lite chewy-ness and good lite carbonation.
O: I do not have enough good things to say about this beer, easily my favorite quad and one of my top beers.

This is the third, and supposed to be the best of the three rocheforts. Very excited to have found this, and it did not disappoint. 11.2 oz bottle poured into my chimay chalice.
A: Deep woody brown, almost auburn around the edges. The head is the color of tan leather, and is made up of millions of tiny bubbles. Frothy and very long lasting. Lacing and general appearance is absolutely unmatched.
S: Notes of belgian candied sugar, munich and crystal malt. Slight hints of plum, apple, hazelnut, and cinnamon.
T: First notes are of munich, crystal, and a touch of pilsner malt all combined into a heavenly complexity. Secondary flavors are plum, fig, corriander, and walnut . Non dry aftertaste with notes of cinnamon, citrus peel and banana.
M: Medium to medium heavy body, with low carbonation. Very pronounced alcohol warming. More sweet (in a malto-detrin thick way) than bitter.
O: This beer is one of the top tier, elite beers that have ever been produced. My favorite aspects of this beer is the sheer balance, complexity and depth. Amazing. This ruins all others.
Do yourself a favor, if you see this beer anywhere, buy it!!! and make sure to consume it at cellar, not fridge temperatures.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a Duvel Tulip.
A: Pours a hazy mahogany brown color with some amber highlights. Aggressive pour leads to a half-finger light tan head that fades slowly to a nice little ring around the outside. Lacing is pretty non-existant.
S: Ooh boy. What a nose. Tons of sweet malts, bready yeast, caramel, caramelized sugar and figs. Alcohol has to be there but everything is blended so well that is really tough to pick up.
T: Follows the noes almost di-rectly. With everything blending together to make such a wonderfully sweet and inviting flavor. At 11.3% it's high octane and well hidden. There's not a chance that you're picking up alcohol with all of this wonderful malt and subtle begian spice.
M: Creamy, subtly carbonated with just enough to lift the flavors to your taste buds and leave them.
O: A really wonderful beer. Quintessential Belgian beer and at $5 per bottle and always available at my shop, this is one to admire.
