A: Great red/brown color with white head. The red color to it is cery appealing.

S: Smells of raisins, molasses, and caramel. Very sweet smelling malts with a small about of alcohol smell to it. Not a very strong smell to me. Hard to detect smelsl in this one.

T: Very sweet taste consisting of raisins, sugar, and a lot of malt. There is a small amount of alcohol aftertaste.

M: Good mouthfeel, medium thickness and a small amount of carbonation.

O: OVerall, this is a good beer. I enjoy it. Not my favorite style but I would recommend it.

33 cl bottle coded 141216. Aroma of caramel malts, raisins and dark pitted fruit. Taste is highlighted by molasses, raisins, candi sugar, brown sugar, slight cola. And of course that lovely rochefort trademark yeast esters. Delicious, beautiful, no abv noted on taste. A classic.
