UPDATED: MAR 2, 2007 Bottle, bought at the brewery. I’ve used Rochefort yeast for this one, brewer Menno Olivier says proudly. Dark brown color. Apple, chocolate, cinnamon and yeast in the aroma. Indeed, there is some Rochefort character, but I wouldn’t have guessed it without knowing. Chocolate, apple and plums in the flavor. Malty, medium bodied, not too sweet. Blackcurrant, somewhat yeasty. Some distant hop character. Velvety. Likeable beer.
