look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Dark brown pour with little head retention.

Smell is prune, date, raisin.

Taste is ashy, not as complex, almost a bandaid flavor.

Great mouthfeel but a bit of heat. Odd finish.

As it warms, smell gets toffee/fruit/candy. Still has an odd finish, sharp and offensive up front. Ends up with a barleywine feel to it.

This was the most like Westy, but I wouldn’t say either are the best Belgium beer, and I wouldn’t say it is close to the best beer I have had.

Bottle has a date of 090615. I assume this is "best by". This one is a couple years old so I'm guessing it's got a 5 year best by date (probably bottled 2010 which sounds right).

A: Pours a deep dark reddish-brown. Good sized fluffy and fizzy tan head. Head fizzes out fast, leaving zero lacing behind. Halfway decent retention at least.

S: Rich and sweet dark fruits. Wonderful dark fruit aroma in fact. Lots of raisin and fig of course, but notable cherries as well. Maybe prunes and plums? Candied fruits abound. No alcohol sting at all.

T: Sweet and decadent dark fruits again. Loaded with them as mentioned in the aroma. I swear I even get grape in addition to what I've previously mentioned. Sweet bready malt. Kinda reminds me of poundcake. No real noticeable alcohol, maybe the slightest hint of booze on the back end. Spices in the finish, mild and well integrated.

M: Fairly heavy but not cloying. Not too viscous. Just about right really.

O: A wonderful quad, one of the best. Destroys St. Bernardus Abt 12 out of the water and gives Westy 12 a run for its money. Super sweet and fruity, one of the fruitiest (in a good way) quads I've ever had. Ages well too apparently, flavors meld nicely and it goes down so easily. Great beer.

Tasted in a Rochefort goblet from an 33 cl bottle on August 4, 2013. Look is deep dark brown with a tan head and sticky lacing. Smell is spice, plum, raisin, currant and ripe melon with sweet malt aromas. Taste is spice, plum, raisin and currant with lots of sweet malt flavors. Feel is full in body and a little prickly on the tongue.
