Beautiful deep plum color with a full beige head that dissipates to thin film. Very nice lacing. Smells of raisin, apricots, and a generally sweet fruity aroma. The taste is amazing, plums, grapes, complex but so smooth, just a little alcohol burn on the end, just right. Medium carbonation and body is perfect for this style, a sticky finish. Among the elite this style. Great.

Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into tulip. There's is some kind of date on the bottle but I have no clue what the hell it means.

A: Poured a deep brown. Looks like liquid chocolate even though it does not smell like it. about 2 fingers of really light tan. As of right now when I'm reviewing this, there is about a finger and a half of head.

S: Upon my first sniff, I caught a very strong smell. Some dark fruits such as figs and raisins. Caramel and malts are also prevalent in the nose. There is also a slight scent of alcohol.

T: Some fruits start this out with some caramel coming through immediately after. A strong malty backbone with a bready flavor finishes along with a slight alcohol burn. Burnt sugar makes up the sweetness that is quite consistent with throughout this brew. The aforementioned alcohol burn is nothing that takes away from the flavor of this beer. Definitely some good stuff here.

M: Medium to heavy bodied. The bready malts linger on the palate and make this a bit chewy. As I previously mentioned, the alcohol is slight but enjoyable. And the chewiness makes me yearn for another sip. Well done.

Overall: I have had 1 or 2 quads and my life and this brew exemplifies what a quad is. The alcohol is pretty well hidden for a brew with 11% ABV. The complex flavors are fantastic and you can tell that these Belgians put a lot of time into their brews. This makes me want to try a Westy and see how they compare. I'm not sure if I'd buy another one of these at 7-8 bucks a bottle, but I will say that it's definitely worth it. Great job Brasserie de Rochefort in Rochefort, Belgium!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

a: Amber brown to brown with a significant head that dissipates gradually. Little carbonation.

s: A smell of sweet fruit, possibly cherries or plums.

t: A bit dry up front, with a sweet fruit and malty taste.

m: Rich with little noticeable carbonation. Very little alcohol warming. Not syrupy at all.

o: For being 11.3% alcohol, this beer is pretty drinkable. It tastes rich without being thick. A good beer, but for me, not in the same league as Westvleteren.

330 ml bottle poured into a tulip.

Pours a dark ruby brown. Decent head with average retention and lacing. Rich aromas, fig, leather. Similar flavors, fig, raisin, walnut, slightly cloying, but not overly sweet. Cloying is usually an unpleasant sensation, but it's not here. I may not be using the correct descriptor for this, but that's the closest I can come up with. Smooth mouthfeel. Pleasant aftertaste.
