Best you'll taste. No skunky smell, no bitter taste, full bodied, no bad aftertaste, nearly sweet hopsy swish. Any change to this recipe would be a decrement.

Appearance 4 - Beautiful dark brown colour with orange sparks. Very cloudy. Superthick ever-lasting light brown head, with darker spots of sediment (I should've stirred the bottle a bit before opening). Cute, even bubbles. Average lacing. Medium to low carbonation, but hard to see through the hazy colour.

Smell 5 - Very strong, heavy and pleasant smell overall. I smell dates, overripe fruit and caramel, some soothing spices and lot more of what I can't identify. Also some roasted malt.

Taste 5 - Quite multi dimensional with sweet fruit, coffee and malt. Heavy, bitter, dry tail. But also some alcohol aftertaste, which is quite understandable and not at all unpleasant. I am overwhelmed by all the flavours in this beer, wish I could describe all the goodness better. Letting it warm and rest a little releases quite a different pallete of flavors.

Moutfeel 4.5 - Pretty heavy of course, but sizzling and somehow quite crispy, refreshing and surprisingly drinkable.

Overall 5 - The most expensive, the most interesting and also probably the best beer I’ve ever had... in a way. I wouldn't drink this every day and surely more than one at a time is sort of a waste. I would call it a dessert beer for special occasions.

Had 1-5-13 at Cafe Bruges (Carlisle, PA)

Wanted to revisit this one ever since we had it on Trappist Bier Night in May of '12. After sampling about 10 beers before we got to Rochefort, I got the sense that my palette had already been practically destroyed by the time we got to this delicious brew.

Love the look and smell of this beer: dark mahogany brown, with plenty of rich, dark fruits in the nose. Figs, raisins, and a little caramel mixed in with a hint of dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is out of this world: rich, creamy feel but the finish is actually drier than you might expect.

Paired this with a lamb burger, and I'm pleased I did. This is a "Telling Stories By a Brick Fireplace in the Dead of Winter with a Hearty Meat Dish" sorta beer. Distinct flavors score points here - blindfolded, I could pick this one out of a lineup. Also, insanely drinkable for 11%. A must-have, must-have-again Trappist.
