4.5/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

25.4 oz. bottle,

A: Dark brown with ruby highlights, a thick white, almost tan head, with excellent retention.

S: Dark fruits, malt, and molasses.

T: Very tasty, with dark fruits - raisins and plums, with molasses and rum, and very fragrant and tasty Belgian yeast esters, very complex, I think this is one of the best Belgian Darks that I've ever had.

M: Big and chewy, quite dry, however, smooth and robust in the end.

D: One of the most drinkable big beers that I have ever had, the 10% is completely hidden, an excellent beer, would recommend it to anyone. I'm glad I reviewed it for #100.

3.54/5  rDev -15.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Koningshoeven chalice. Best before 10/05/14 (10 May?).

A: Light burnished copper. Light white head with good lacing.

S: Caramel sugar. Apples and pears. Hint of phenol and spice.

T/M: Thinnish and odd. Vanilla. Pear. Can't taste the strength at all. The taste is so brief as to be ephemeral. Aftertaste is lightly sour.

O: It's good, but too strange to great. Maybe I got a strange bottle. Would try again, if not soon.

4.18/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a snifter

A: Light brown with a tan one-finger head that dissipates into tiny bubbles. Frothy lacing.

S: Bourbon, nutty, earthy, rum, sugar, caramel. Bring it on.

T: Follows nose. Smooth as hell. Nutty, dark fruits, malts and caramel. Love it. The 10% kicks in with gusto.

M: Medium with frothy carbonation.

O: A great celebration drink. I would say it's my favorite of the 3 des Rocs I've tried, but I love them all equally. Highly recommended for Belgian brew fans.
