4.1/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

11.2 oz. brown bottle with best before end date of 2007.

Opaque amber/brown with a large almond colored froth that left trails down the tulip. Second pour released a ton of yeast sediment that swirled in a torrent.

Juicy ripe fruit in the aroma: pear, apple, plum. A touch of caramel sweetness and quite a bit of EtOH.

The mouthfeel is unbelievable! Super creamy, slick, silky, and smooth like velvet. Fruit flavors come in at the top- apple, pear, raisins, etc. A caramel tinge comes in at the middle, fading into a biting alchohol finish that carries with it a peppery spiciness.

Had this one paired with pasta with alfredo sauce. The big boozy finish seemed to get in the way, though it did cleanse the palate of the cheese and cream. One hell of a mouthfeel with this beer.

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.
