A wine-like finishing beer. Excellent. One mate wanted more aftertaste. Orange brown. Complementing mix of Hops and malts and spicy cinammon works and worth paying for. Buy the right glass for this classic. Orange and candy sweetness. Alcohol basically hidden.

So, I am finally able to ge ahold of one one these bottles and give it a try. I have heard alot of fan fare regarding this one so I was definitly intrested in getting my hands on one. It was a very nice capped 750ml. Really some great artwork on it. It just looked big, and kinda bold and religous. Almost a bit intimidating to be honest.. But we had to celebrate so I popped the cap and poured out in three tulips for myself and a couple guests..

A - Poured a nice rusty brown with a huge tannish head. Great retention left it hanging around forever. Great sideglass lace and a really nice amount of carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass.

S - Very spicey. First thing I picked up was like some paprika or nutmeg, corriander maybe but definite spice. A touch of alcohol could also be picked up on the nose. Big smell though, lots of yeast everywhere. There was no mistaking this one was going to be one to be reckoned with.

T - Wow, what a mouthfull of flavor. So much to try and decipher with this one it was hard to tell where to really star. Huge sour fruit like taste was the first thing I noticed. This was very robust and followed up almost immediatly by a surge of spiceness. Lots of different characters here. Almost too many to actual name. But some flavors of peach and apple, with a touch of grape were evident. A decent amount of alcohol was evident in the profile, nothing overwhelming but definatly enought to take a notice of. Overall though the flavor was really good and quite unique. Even took in a sense of a dry hop like finish. It is really hard to describe, but this one was really really differen.

M - Very full and creamy would be the best way to describe it. The frothy like carbonation really gave it that creamy light feel. Was not overally thick or syrup like, Really had a good light but yet full profile. Quite nice.

D - Well to be honest this was a damn big beer and very difficult to drink much of so its hard to really give it a huge mark here, howver it was definatly a good late night sipper and I would really enjoy a tulip of this at night when it is cold. Could really warm you up from the inside if you know what I mean,

Overall I was quite impressed with this one. It did not really fit into the mold of anything I had had before. It was definatly something I would wanna try again as it was very differnt and full of flavor. Definatly would recommend this one.

3.98/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a murky garnet brown body with all kinds of suspended yeasties floating around (I had to run it through a sieve to break them up); the head is strong (and the bottle was a foamer) but doesn't last long; plenty of splashy lacing, however

Smell: Caramel, toffee, hazlenuts, balsa wood, raisins but not the bounteous aroma that others have noted

Taste: Nice and balanced, starts with a hazelnutty, cookie dough flavor that builds into a dark fruit melange with a woodie finish

Mouthfeel: A touch thin for the style, but well carbonated

Drinkability: Either I had a mishandled bottle or this one is going downhill since earlier reviewers hailed it with all kind of superlatives; a nice beer but not top notch

Bottle: Poured a dark brown beer with a huge foamy head with good retention. Incredible amount of yeast is contained at the bottom of the glasses and I decided to pour those in my glass. Aroma of roastiness mix with some nice fresh sweet fruit (Apricot/peach) creates quite an incredible combination. Taste is quite complex as it start with some sweet flavour and then roastiness come aboard and ends with a subtle bitterness coming straight from the hops. Wow! Almost up there with the Rochefort/Westy 8.

Can't help but to love this beer. Certainly the best of the Brassarie des Rocs offerings. Very mature and bold in all it's flavors, while retaining a perfect balance. The bottle really pissed me off. Upon poping the top, it's gushing made a mess of the counter top. I managed to pour a goblet and sat down to drink. Upon returning, the half-full bottle continued to cascade over the top and created, yet another mess. After that, good beer! Malty, prune-sy, raisons, woodsy, vineous, tart, spicy, and lightly barnyard-ey and leathery. Moderately full and rich with a less-thn-thick feel. Carbonation gives way to a smooth, tart finish. This one is deservingly of BA top 100 status.

Big thanks to ygtbsm94 for sharing a bottle of the 2006 vintage of this. Also had a separate bottle more recently, at which time I took better notes. Review from those.

Served in a wine glass. Gushed quite a bit, overflowing after I opened it. It was probably a bit too warm. Loads of floaties, though this is quite explainable given the gushing. Pours brown-garnet with a moderate head that quickly falls into a collar with a speckled cap. The nose is strong, earthy red grapes with some caramel and plum in the background. there are also some other dark fruits and a good measure of sweetness as well.

The taste is not quite as complex but there are strong grapes and a bit of cherries. This is quite sweet but never cloying. There is a bit of darker malt in the background; no roast. The feel is medium and cream. Light--though very fitting--level of carbonation. Incredibly drinkable. Likely my new go to Belgian beer.

A: The beer poured cloudy dark brown in color with a thin off white head that quickly faded into lacy patterns of bubbles covering the surface. A light to medium amount of carbonation is visible.
S: The nose is very malty and sweet with notes of caramel and hints of dark fruits and spices. The aromas become stronger as the beer warms up.
T: Like the smell, the taste is also rather sweet and has flavors of caramel malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a light amount of carbonation.
D: The alcohol is completely hidden from both the smell and taste, which makes this beer very easy to drink.

My first sampling of this brew in several years and I'm all atwitter!
Cap and cork are removed and the prey is sighted, the creamy nodule of foam that peeks from the neck, waiting to escape from the green bottle and into a worthy glass, eager for my consumption.
Cast in a gorgeous garnet color, cherry red, a sumptuous sight, the foam a lovely thing, all lace, all bubbly.
Nose is velvety soft, angelic, sexy. This aroma is a herald to beer nirvana, beautifully yeasty, happily hoppy. I reel in orgiastic delight, sent from the ecstacy of it all.
We sip, and the tastebuds are enticed, excited, set aflame, aglow, tossed back, and laid low...a graniloquent effect, indeed.
Magnificent maltiness! Abundant fruitiness! A symphony of rich, rounded flavors rings loudly through all corners and corridors of mind, body, and soul.
Sip after sip, a massive power sweeps over, wave after wave...magniloquent, effervescicant, scintillastic, etherealistic...I'm left inventing new words to truly transcibe such transcendence.
Like soaking in happiness, trading in your every cell for burgundy bubbles and floating into unearthly ecstacy. The very thing to judge others of this style by, Does it flood the mouth with flavor?
Does it devastate the senses?
Damn, but this sure does!

Thanks to MenekiNeko for reacquainting we two!

3.93/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a goblet glass.

A: The beer is a medium brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains brown sugar, caramelized malts, Belgian yeast some spice and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with strong flavors of brown sugar and caramel. Then some Belgian yeast and hearty malt character breadiness comes in. The hops presence is very mild but complementary and creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, it’s a solid Belgian brown ale but there are better options in the style.

BBD of Dec 31 2008. Pours a slightly hazed caramel/ruddy red with 1 finger of tan colored head. Suspended yeast is also noticable, bummer, but clears over time. Average lacing in dropplet form on the side of the goblet & a good film more so than actual head retention

S: Caramel & toffee with a slight smokeyness. A little bit of yeasty, phenolic notes sneak as this is warmed up to room temp

T: Belgian candy, caramel & breadyness up front. A little warming booze follows along with pecan notes. Oaky dryness & a little bit of grainyness is there as well. Finishes with warming booze, sticky candy & honey

MF: Medium bodied, sticky & low levels of carbonation

Drinks very easy for the heft, a really nice brune, starts to get a bit hot as this warms all the way up

Poured from a bottle into a Bruery tulip. Lots of sediment in this one. Luckily I have a strong constitution.

Beer is brown, dark, and really hazy with chunks floating in it. Brown thin dusty head, medium bubbles, nice lacing, strong forward carbonation.

Aroma sweet and bready. Mild, good though.

Beer is pretty sweet. Lots of carbonation on the palate, some caramel flavors, breadiness and esters on the midpalate, finish is a little dry, not too much though. Overall a nice beer.

The beer pours a medium brown color with a cream-colored head. There are huge chunks of yeast that come out of the bottle. (I also got this is then Grand Cru from this brewery.) Not very appetizing. The aroma is brown sugar and dark fruit. The flavor is dark fruit, alcohol, brown sugar, yeast and some darker malts. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy ruby-amber color, topped by a light brown head, that is raised to a three-finger thickness by a solid carbonation. Interesting, almost wine like aroma, joined by notes of tannin, apricot, sweet herbs, musty cellars, dust, and a spicy peppery note. There is quite a complex nose on this beer. The taste is lightly sweet, fruity, with perhaps a hint of sherry. The fruity notes are reminiscent of sour plum and apricot. Quite a bit of musty cobweb type notes going on here as well. Complex tasting, definitely a bit aged, as this is showing bits of oxidation around the edges, nothing harmful yet, it just adds to the maltiness and complexity of this brew.

Got a bottle of this beer from the Bethlehem Speakeasy about a year ago. I had purchased a bottle of Baladin Xfume for about $50 to take home with me. The bartender had then brought out the bottle of Des Rocs for me and started pouring it out. I asked what it was, he said it was a Dark Belgian Strong ale that they had just gotten in. He told me it was on the house for being a such good customer to them all the time. I thanked him and proceeded to enjoy this beer to it's fullest. The beer poured out as a really nice brown color with a tan foamy head. The lacing was pretty good on the glass. The aromas of brown sugar and dark fruits flooded my nose, there was also some yeasty aroma in there and some fresh wood also. The aromas were all very well balanced. The taste of the beer was lightly roasted, the sweetness upfront from the fruits carried over into the caramel wooden aftetaste. The mouthfeel was elegantly smooth and very eacy to drink. Overall I found this beer to be very good on just about every level. I'd love to have it again one day.

4.18/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a tulip glass. Best before end of 2009.

Pours orange/amber with a large, rocky head that descends to a lasting thin head. Too many "floaties" interrupted its clarity, which would have otherwise been very nice.

The smell is of caramel, peppery spice and orange peel. The aroma is reminiscent of spiced fruitcake with a caramel coating.

The taste is spicy and sweet. Caramel and sweet grains are balanced by mix of spices and a touch of pepper. Slightly medicinal in the finish.

The feel is creamy and coating with a bit of a kick. It does thin just a tad, even when suitably warm, but it is almost negligible.

For the abv, this is very drinkable. Goes down smooth with just a bit of the alcohol coming through. It does blend in well, though. Can't say this it's one of my personal favorites from Belgium, but it sure is nice!

I wanted (yet) another St Bernadus Christmas on tap, but the strength was just too high so I settled for a bottle of this on that fateful afternoon I first visited The Red Rose in Brugge.

The 9% ABV being a whole 1% less than the St Bernadus I felt very righteous and the wife didn’t notice the alcohol content (double bonus).

Nine tenths of the beer was poured for me into the glass, the remaining sediment infested tenth I swallowed at the end. The beer was a deep, deep brown, red, purple colour, mostly red I suppose: on top an off-white head that fades fair too swiftly.

The smells are mostly sweet: molasses and sugar on toast, there is also a yeasty, dirty aroma hidden away that comes out when the beer begins to warm in the glass.

This isn’t a gulper; you’ve got to sip it: the flavours are complex and confusing. Sweet up front with a malt flavour, leaning towards burnt candy floss and treacle tarts as you get into it.

Rich, but not as thick as you might imagine, certainly different to what I expected.

Strange brew, would have preferred another St Bernadus to be honest!

3.7/5  rDev -12.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: A vibrant glowing ruby brown tone with a tan thicket of frothy foaming head, leaving thickets of scattered bars of lacing just amazng appearance. Aroma: Doughy yeast spreads into a vegetable tone with a warming musky combonation of alcohol and yeast notes simply nothing like it out there in my opinion. A floral pine musty hop with a decadence of following flavor what a complex belgian style ale. Taste: Musty stir fried vegetables especially peas and carrots but somehow it works as a flavor with a woody finish and genuine sweet vegetables, it's a big question mark of what the fuck happened to this beer. Mouthfeel: Fuller bodied orgininal true to a mindblowing experience of flavor brew, very interesting could take some getting used to. Drinkability: Althought musky this beer does every questioning to one's senses I can imagine, wow I guess all I can say is try it and hope I am ready for this caliber of complexity.

Cloudy brown in color with a 2" head. Carbonation levels were a bit stronger than expected. Some lacing develops. The aroma is of caramel and yeast. The flavor consist of caramel, yeast, mild bitterness, and prunes. A hint of nuts and milk chocolate was barely there, but noticeable.

The mouthfeel was very crisp at the start and finish, and also finished slightly dry. Nice drinkability, as the caramel lingers softly on the tongue after swallowing. Overall this is a nice brew.

From 12/12/10 notes. Had at a local tasting thanks to ygtbsm94; thanks Brad.

a - Pours an amber color with two fingers of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Some sediment floating in the beer.

s - Smells of molasses, dark fruits, caramel malts, and a little bit of spice.

t - Tastes of dark fruit, caramel malts, spices, sugar. Definitely some sour fruit in the taste as well.

m - Medium body and low carbonation.

d - Overall I thought this was a pretty good Belgian dark ale. I really like the sour fruit taste and the mouthfeel. Would like to try again.

This is a 750 mL bottle of Brune served in a Chimay goblet. The ale is cool to room temperature.

A: The ale is a deep auburn color with big head on pour that does not retain well.

S: Nose is alcohol and fruity, with orange peel standing out. Yeast adds a nice aroma as well.

T: Taste is curacao with hints of cinnamon and thyme. Taste is very intense, on par with the grand cru brown in terms of alefruits and depth.

M: The mouthfeel is a cornucopia of flavors, quite nice.

D: Very dinkable, although the 9% abv is a little high.

Large bottle, capped and corked. Oh baby, this is my kind of beer, alot going on! Pours dark, murky and very cloudy, with a S*&% load of floating sediment. Nose is of burnt malts, ripe fruit, licorish and funkyness, Head is light tan, with amazing retention, frothyness, density, and creamyness. it was as thick as shaving cream for awhile. Respectable, thick and well developed lacing left sticking to the glass.
Lovely smooth mouthfeel, light and velvety on the tongue, coating the entire mouth and throat.
Tastes of rum, fruits of a thousand nations, vanilla, honey, light maple syrup. Yum Yum The yeast at the botom of the glass, adds a further layer of complexity to the mix. Nutty, smooth, heady stuff!

World class brew, seek out and enjoy!

The term "Nectar of the Gods" comes to mind

(Served in a chalice)
Best before 2008
A- This beer has a thick creamy light tan head on top a slightly dense warm reddish-brown body that has big lumps of jetsam slowly gliding around the body unaffected by the strong carbonation of tiny bubbles. No matter how gentle or slow the pour large lumps continued to flow with each glass.

S- The smell of light brown sugar and champagne notes has a light perfume honey note. The finish has a nice light spice note with some faint toffee hints.

T- This beer has a light caramel malt sweet flavor with some light cider and sweet champagne notes. There is a light sweetened condensed milk note in the finish with a nice alcohol note. The finish has a very light bitter hint that goes well with the alcohol.

M- This beer has a light airy mouthfeel with a light zing at the finish that is not really alcohol or tartness. There is also a soft alcohol heat after that which is nice at cleaning up the beer.

D- This is the lumpiest beer I have ever drunk. I didn’t taste the lumps or even feel them in my mouth, I only saw them during the pour and in the body. The beer was so tasty that I didn’t mind the lumps. This beer had a soft flavor but there were lots of layers and some nice complexity. The sweetness was also soft but balanced with the alcohol heat. Very nice and goes down very smooth.

Deep red, poured into a wide-mouthed branded goblet at 't Brugs Beertje. Body is clear and fine, quite slight bodied, but the head is full and attractive. Some sticky lacing looks more like a continuation of a subsided head. Colour is awesome, overall, it looks very pleasant indeed.

Nose is quite astringent and strong with booze and a savoury sweet character, a little like ketchup. Sweet tomato, slight spice and savoury moreishness. Full and quite lovely; before it gets too intense, there's a touch of lemon freshness to cut through. Very special and a little unique.

Taste is soft and flavoursome, with more of that savoury character and a lingering vegetative sweetness. All of this is softened with caramel, port, cream and herbal tones. Vanilla sweetness comes though, with even a hint of cherry or kirsch. Very filling, and rather finely and strongly carbonated however.

Smooth and strong, and quite full on, but nonetheless dry and respectable. Harder to drink than some; the carbonation is very high. But it's an impressive beer, no doubt.

Pours a clean/clear amber color, nice carbonation, very nice two finger creamy tan head, very nice islands and sticky lacing throughtout the drink. The nose is very nice of malts, grapes, figs, prunes, yeast and caramel. The taste is also delicious of sweet malts, grapes, figs, prunes, with a nice caramel undertone, the ABV is hidden very well. Medium body, a well rounded/complex brew. Very drinkable, an absolutely delicious brew, highly rocommended.
