4.43/5 rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
When first served, the off-white head stood almost 1/4 inch, eventually fizzing down to an enduring 1/8 inch on top of a dark amber body. Like unbleached wool, some thin beige strands remained from the original pour, lacing the glass with an unattractive residue. What remained leaned more toward a frothy/foamy head than a moist/bubbly one.
Smell was pretty intriguing: fruity notes of plum or fig, I noticed even a hint of banana lingering after I inhaled; honey and subtle brown sugar stood at the forefront.
My tastebuds were overpowered by the aromas. But, I noted weak traces of the aforementioned fruits on my tongue, in addition to red grapes. If anything, the honey masked an otherwise noticable taste of alcohol.
One of the smoothest drinking beers I've ever had. The bubbles are very unintrusive and unnoticable. Very sweet... in fact, I worry that a different batch could be too sweet. The sugars remained in my mouth long after the last sip. I'm looking forward to enjoying this a few times over the spring.

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.
