I kind of feel like I woke up in a foreign country; all of a sudden Raul is tasting flavors he hasn’t tasted before... But as they say, variety is the spice of life. And Raul is glad to hop on the Rochefort express. A woo! Woo! It’s like the gingerbread man on acid; dark fruits, the best bread you have ever tasted... It’s glorious, it’s beyond glorious, it’s ethereal. And this is one beer Raul wouldn’t mind dreaming about every night.

Yep!

Deep purple-ish brown in color, big rocky white head. A wealth of aromas unfold: fruity esters, moderate spice, malt, alcohol. Spicy malt is at the fore, mingling with creamy caramel and then a good dose of alcohol heat, giving balance. Chocolate and toasty malt also figure into the finish. The alcohol begins to warm the body's core. By mid-glass, the lively carbonation has subsided nicely, lending a smoothness that complements the harmonious flavors of this fine beer.

Not quite the powerhouse that Rochefort 10 is, but there's still very little to complain about here.

Pours a murky, brown color with a tan head that falls to a small head leaving thin lace.

Sweet dried fruit aroma. Getting a sweet mocha aroma too?

Full flavor. Sweet, mild fruitiness. Sweet malt. Yummy.

Medium to full in the mouth. Fizzy and tangy.

Awesome beer. One of my favorites.
