look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
St bernardus glass, beer served around 8°c
A: Deep red brown color with beige head (nothing special but ok)
S: Fruity with a fresh banana smell, a bit yeasty as well
T: Good balanced between fruity (prune, 'old' cherry and banana) and spicy (liquorice, maybe a subtle coriander touch with a nice bitter and malty after taste
M: Good body, excellent saturation, not too dry
O: Excellent with a good strong cheese (I've tried it with a Herve cheese), I advice to drink this one cold and temperate because both are quite different

Poured from a glass into a Belgian Ale stemmed glass.
A: Dark, cloudy brown with tinges of deep red and orange. Thick head, some sediment (in bottle) can sneak out in an aggressive pour.
S: Big roasted malt body with strong notes of caramel, honey, molasses and peat. Some spicy and hoppy finish.
T: Primarily dark roasted malt body with spice and sweet on top. Big caramel notes and hints of clove and candy. Some cherry nose and a somewhat hoppy finish. Fairly boozy but very balanced considering its ABV and OG.
M: Smooth and silky, somewhat carbonated, not overly sweet or bitter. No unfortunate aftertastes. Very balanced and enjoyable to drink.
O: Another fine Belgian. Not quite as good as the Trappistes beers, specifically the Rochefort 10, but nonetheless an excellent beer. I enjoyed the malty body and tinges of cherry candy in the finish. Nice color, a bit more sediment than I was expecting (got a little in my glass, oops!).
