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.

750ml bottle served in a St. Bernardus snifter. About 1 year past the indicated best before date of 06/04/2012, but stored carefully.

A: Pours a dark reddish amber with a finger of off-white head. The head quickly recedes to a lasting partial coat and ring. Even the first pour provided a load of suspended sediment, some of which rose and fell in swirls due to the carbonation. Very peculiar looking and not so appealing. The sediment was not detectable by feel.

S: Very complex aroma; one of those rare beers where it seems a bit different every time a take a sniff/sip. Hints of dates, honey, apple cider and a host of fruits. The high ABV is most apparent here, being quite well hidden in tasting and in the gently warming feel.

T: Mildly spicy and sweet, with hints of dark honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, dark bread, figs, and roast nuts. Very nice balance between dark fruitiness, mild sweetness and spices.

M: Full body; creamy smooth; medium and very soft carbonation.

O: An exceptional beer that, given the sediment, is best enjoyed in a darker environment.
