Beer pours a very cloudy medium brown color with a very strong head that fills the upper finger of m Rochefort tasting glass. Bubbles surge to the top of the glass keeping the head creamy and somewhat rocky.

The aroma is very complex. Malt, alcohol, slight rum like aroma, hard to single out what all is making up the aromatics and what is coming from yeast, ingredients, or maybe spices.

The first thing that hits you is a caramel like sweetness followed by flavors of toast and biscuit. Finish is a little milk chocolate like with a very subtle hint of orange. There is some alcohol on the palate. As the beer warm I can start to taste raisin, rum, burnt sugar.

Mouthfeel is creamy, the head on the beer really helps with that along with the giant rim on the glass. Little bubbles tickle you tongue as you drink.

This is an excellent beer, the appearance is probably the low point just because it is so murky, not to mention the yeast on the bottom came right off and most of it ended up in the glass. The biscuit and bread go well with the raisin and rum that start to show as the beer warms.
