A: Nice deep brown, with a nice 1 finger tan head on vigorous pour. Sediment present.

S: Although alcohol is present in the nose, the grains really keep the smell balanced overall.

T: Wow, what a smooth beer! At 11.3%, you really don't get overpowered with the alcohol like some other beers with this abv.

M: Carbonation is medium. When mixed with the abv, you get a really nice, yet slight, burn on the tongue. Really good coating on every sip.

O: I've been keeping two of these in the back of the fridge since Christmas. Glad that I finally tried one of the greatest, and well balanced, beers I've tried to date. Certainly worth the hype; and I love the fact that it is readily available in my area.

For me, the quintessential dark Belgian beer. Rich, dense, rummy, fudgy, raisins and sugary dates, buttery brown sugar, deeply fruity.

Very warming, impossible to drink slowly. One of my favorite beers, widely available, and impossible to beat in this style.

Consumed from a Trappistes Rochefort glass.

Appearance: This beer is cloudy and dark with a short life-span off white colored head.

Smell: Smells like figs and cherries ( some other dark fruits maybe) brown sugar.

Taste: Amazing flavor. Complex in texture and flavor, has a lot of the dark fruit and dark sugar flavors that I have come to expect out of the great belgian beers. amazing beer.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and very lightly spiced. Seems to have low carbonation and a complex texture.

Overall: This is a great beer and it has a great flavor as well as texture. This beer is on the same level as the Westy 12 (maybe not quite as good but it is close. Plus I can get it very easily at a local store).

Serving type: bottle

A - Brownish burgundy. Hazy and 65% opaque. Cream colored head that dissipated quickly.
S - Caramel and apples are prominent. A bit of alcohol when inhaling deeply but not overwhelmingly so. Some molasses or other sugary smell. I smells wonderful. It smells like a candy factory but not it's not cloying at all. It's almost like the smell of baking cookies but more earthy.
T - the taste lives up to the hype. The high alcohol content is not noticeable. It is nicely sweet and fruity, but there is still an easy malt presence. It could pair well with a dessert, but it also has a strength that would allow it to pair with meat. It is powerful but also subtle and well balanced. Lots of caramel. Not much bitterness if any at all.
M - The only small criticism I might have is that the mouthfeel is a little thin. But, it is still solid and easy to drink.
O - this is a great beer...one of the best I've ever had.
