look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Dark brown Oak, with very think quick head.

Smell: Smooth, subtle. Many malt, yeast and bread notes with some alcohol breaking through. Dark Plum notes and some lighter floral notes come through in the end.

Taste: Initial malt and toffees. Some smooth caramel notes with some backing fruit notes: figs, plums and raisins.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, uniform and pleasant.

Overall: A great beer,, elegant and complex. A fine example of a "less is more" beer.

Serving: Bottle poured in Rochefort Chalace.
