It is good but milder in flavor than the other Trappistes Rochefort and I think I like the other two better.

Look: hazy red-brown, one inch white head

Aroma: raisin bread, dark fruit.

Taste: raisin bread, plum, figs, banana, a little bit of yeast.

Feel: medium body, relatively easy drinking.

4.07/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Look: Dark ruby, with minimal lacing and quite a bit of head (it's a rather carbonated beer) that dissipates within two minutes or less.

Smell: Mild, compared to its stronger sister brews. Hints of plum, fig, allspice and a bit of banana, but not much to talk about even after it warms.

Taste: Disappointing, given the context of the rest of the Trappistes lineup. By no means a bad beer, but considering the robust flavor profile of the Rochefort 10, it tastes merely like a diluted version of its older sister.

Feel: Honestly? Kind of unpleasant. A bit of phenol alcohol sting, which is a bit odd considering that it's only 7.5% ABV, coupled with some relatively heavy carbonation (compared to the other Rocheforts) that makes it somewhat of a chore to get through, especially if you're planning to drink more afterward. Still a cut above the rest if held up to bog-standard Belgian ales and their American imitations, but the carbonation and surprisingly noticeable alcohol make this ale less desirable than its peers.

Overall: Again, the Rocheforts are all lovely beers, but Trappistes' rendition of a dubbel is by far the lineup's weakest link. If you're going to shell out the $4-6 on a single Rochefort, you'd might as well go for one of the two higher grades.

Very different taste then its brothers: Rochefort 8 & 10. Not worth the price, in my opinion.

Description: Reddish, ruby, caramel appearance with a little off-white head that dissipates almost immediately. Aroma is sweet and yeasty with notes of banana, dark fruit and dark cherry. The dark fruit is more pronounced on the taste and kind of steals the show as there is little hoppy bitterness or even spice profile. Feel is light with very high carbonation. Lots of bubbles with a somewhat dry finish.

Overall: 4 (This beer is good and I may or may not drink it again) A tasty and well-crafted beer but a little one note. Really highly carbonated, but I suppose that goes with the territory.

Look: Light brown with some amber highlights when held up to the light. Decent tan head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Fruit and spices, with some yeast.

Taste: Mild bready flavor with a small amount of alcohol bite. Very smooth.

Mouthfeel: Fairly thick, heavily carbonated.

Overall: Tasty, easy to drink, and filling.

Wow...so this is a dubbel....very interesting. i'm somewhat of a tripel freak, and love my quads, but have not had more than two or three of these. I would say it's like a light quad, and not like a tripel at all. Very weird. It has a good head, not much lacing, but who cares. Smell is plum, honey and pinapple. Taste is between a tripel and quad, oddly enough: honey, pear, carmel and dark fruits. Very enjoyable, but lacking the hard personality of a tripel or quad.

A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 8th August 2018. Poured into a mini Rochefort goblet glass.

Appearance: A light-ish orange brown colour with a one finger beige coloured head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some sparse lacing.

Aroma: Dark fruit plum, prunes and raisins with a hint of caramel.

Taste: Like the aroma, there’s lots of dark fruit raisins, prunes and plum with hints of honey, caramel and toffee.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: Nice but not as complex as the other beers in their small but wonderful lineup.

330 ml bottle poured into a teku.

A- Red hues through a deep orange body, with some yeasty turbidity. Head towers, light tan, bubbly, with great retention. Some of that settled yeast lies on top of the head.

S- Fruity esters, stone fruit: peach/plum. Sweet bread malt, with some nice spicy yeast character. Faint caramel.

T- Sweet and bready, yeasty, and light caramel. Fruit notes a little darker: plum and cherry. A nice spicy character from the yeast comes through in flavor as well.

M- Body medium in feel. Carbonation is bright and a bit prickly. Finish dries, and presents an alcohol warmth.

O- Depth nice, with some more delicate flavors and nuances than the strong Rochefort beers. Drinkable, yet still a small detection of the strength in alcohol.

Sweet smell of caramel. Taste is crisp with a earthy sourness surrounded by a velvety sweetness. Easy to drink.

Pours a rich orange-plum with two fingers of khaki-colored foam retaining exceptionally well. Aroma is pale, bread, biscuit, and earth malts with rich notes of plum, clove, and yeast spices. Flavor profile is bread, biscuit, earth, and pale malts with plum, clove, and yeast spices. Yeast spices deliver that quintessential Belgian beer flavor. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy with a medium thickness. Overall, a big beer even if it's just sitting around 7% ABV. It's the complete package, with every aspect of the beer coming off meticulously constructed.

Served in a Chimay chalice from a 11.2oz bottle.
