750ml, capped and corked.

Pours out deep burnt amber and sits chocolate amber in the glass, murky, with a massive light tan head. Fades to a solid layer of skim, throwing lacings all around the glass.

Aromas of apricots, figs, rasins and plums ooze into the nose. Pistachios and applesauce push in from the sides. Hints of oak lie alongside pears and peaches with just the lightest hint of flowery hops in the back of the nose to compliment the rich fruity aromas that stand up from every corner.

If the nose was not enough, the flavors that come out are equally impressive. Golden rasins and prunes come out and are followed by a smooth flavor of steaming oak. Deep, browning apples press down with dousings of caramel and rich, dark brown sugar. Finishes incredibly clean with only the slightest hint of alcohol, glowing from the back of the throat with minor notes of black pepper and a light, grassy bitterness.

Incredibly smooth and creamy with soft and giving carbonation rolling around the mouth. Medium-full in body and a dream to hold around.

Gee wilikers Batman! This must be on of the best values out there. For $8 a bottle, this is a steal. Complexities are found deep within, giving an endless array of flavors for you mind to contemplate. Sip, enjoy, go comatose, wake up, and repeat...always repeat.

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.

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.
