This is the third, and supposed to be the best of the three rocheforts. Very excited to have found this, and it did not disappoint. 11.2 oz bottle poured into my chimay chalice.

A: Deep woody brown, almost auburn around the edges. The head is the color of tan leather, and is made up of millions of tiny bubbles. Frothy and very long lasting. Lacing and general appearance is absolutely unmatched.

S: Notes of belgian candied sugar, munich and crystal malt. Slight hints of plum, apple, hazelnut, and cinnamon.

T: First notes are of munich, crystal, and a touch of pilsner malt all combined into a heavenly complexity. Secondary flavors are plum, fig, corriander, and walnut . Non dry aftertaste with notes of cinnamon, citrus peel and banana.

M: Medium to medium heavy body, with low carbonation. Very pronounced alcohol warming. More sweet (in a malto-detrin thick way) than bitter.

O: This beer is one of the top tier, elite beers that have ever been produced. My favorite aspects of this beer is the sheer balance, complexity and depth. Amazing. This ruins all others.

Do yourself a favor, if you see this beer anywhere, buy it!!! and make sure to consume it at cellar, not fridge temperatures.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a Duvel Tulip.

A: Pours a hazy mahogany brown color with some amber highlights. Aggressive pour leads to a half-finger light tan head that fades slowly to a nice little ring around the outside. Lacing is pretty non-existant.

S: Ooh boy. What a nose. Tons of sweet malts, bready yeast, caramel, caramelized sugar and figs. Alcohol has to be there but everything is blended so well that is really tough to pick up.

T: Follows the noes almost di-rectly. With everything blending together to make such a wonderfully sweet and inviting flavor. At 11.3% it's high octane and well hidden. There's not a chance that you're picking up alcohol with all of this wonderful malt and subtle begian spice.

M: Creamy, subtly carbonated with just enough to lift the flavors to your taste buds and leave them.

O: A really wonderful beer. Quintessential Belgian beer and at $5 per bottle and always available at my shop, this is one to admire.

A: dark brown with slightly lighter highlights and a khaki head of good size. Nice looking beer. Amazing head retention.

S: yeasty smelling. I get banana, dates, raisins, and some roasted flavors.

T: dominated by the yeasty notes again. Slightly bitter and sweet, with a lot of dark fruit esters with roasted malt.

M: smooth, thick, and heavily carbonated. Not too thick, it allows the carbonation to come through, but just enough to be smooth. The carbonation is fine.

O: great beer, can't believe I haven't had it yet. Got it for $6 for an 11.2 ounce bottle - well worth it. One of the best if not the best quads out there.

Poured from bottle to a tulip glass. The beer pours a rich murky brown color with a thick 2 finger cream head. Good retention and lacing throughout. The nose is that of toasted malt together with fruit and malty sweetness. The yeast is light and adds a hint of fruity flavor. A hint of heat. The flavor is quite complex: roasted malty sweetness, fruit, hints of chocolate. The alcohol is hidden quite well but reveals some heat on the tail end. The beer finishes with syrup mouthfeel and hints of cereal grains with a lingering fruit fig-like flavor. Good. Overall, this is a good beer. I enjoyed it very much and would drink again, recommended.

My first quad.

A: Reddish brown color with an off white sea foam head.

S: Tons of fruit, spices yeast and a little bit of chocolate and alcohol.

T: A little disappointing, strong and sweet, heat from alcohol. Gave me a bit of a headache.

M: Creamy with medium carbonation.

O: I was expecting a little more, this had a BBD of 4.29.14 so it's about 3 years old, the alcohol dominated somewhat for me which I am not a fan of. I will try this again sometime in the future for a re-review and see if my palate is mature enough to handle it.

A re-review. My first re-review but I thought this beer needed more respect. I'm reviewing a bottle BB 050214. Assuming this is from 2009. New review is first.

A - Pour is an opaque dark brown with tons of sedinment. One finger of thick medium brown head sits on top with a dot of brown yeast sediment sitting in the middle. Good retention with a half finger and some spotty lace.

S - Huge dark fruit, port, sugar, yeast, very smooth smelling vinous notes. A great aroma. No alcohol present. I can only describe the aroma as very smooth and extremely pleasant.

T - Yeast, some spice, great dark fruit, definite port qualities, dark candi sugars, boozy fruitcake, sweet Belgian-style sugar and sweet malts. Nice. The mild alcohol note is pretty nice and warming.

M - Mild carbonation, big body, very viscous with sweet finish that lingers on the tongue. Incredibly smooth.

O/D - An extremely smooth, rich, and complex Quad. Even around 2 years age on this makes a big difference. No booze is present and the flavours really have blended together. Great.

Original:

A - Pours a nice murky brown. Tons of sedinment with a tan coloured head of one finger. Carbonation intermingling with the sediment is neat to watch.

S - Really inviting aroma. Smells a bit hot, lot's of dark fruit aromas and port.

T - Boozy and sweet. I don't get any of the dark fruits from the aroma in the flavour. Some dark sugars maybe. The heat from the booze really dominates unfortunately but some of the other flavours pull through and show you what this beer has the potential to be down the road.

M - Coats the mouth wonderfully and the carbonation is good but not too powerful. Taste lingers for a really long time.

D - If the booziness could drop off this with age then this could be really drinkable even at its high abv.

I've had this aged for 7 years before and it was superb. The booziness in the fresher bottle holds it back alot
