Dark amber with a dense low head. Sweet and yeasty aroma with notes of chocolate, fruits and some liquorice. The flavours are tart and dark dried fruits with some complex spices. It is less sweet than itís bigger brothers, and not quite as complex.

Bottle from BevMo in Vacaville. Surprisingly, I didnít like this compared to other from Rochefort. There was way too much carbination, and it tasted more like sparkling water than beer. I canít understand how this brew lacks where itís siblings blow the competition away.

Bottle. Sweet smell of malt, a little bit like wine, fruity with some yeast in it. A little bit of fresh bread shines through. The head is rather small, foamy-fizzy and fast disappearing. The body is a deep red-brown. It starts light bitter, quite big amount of carbonation in it. The body is rather medium, dry and with lively carbonation, the finish is rather light. Very nice one!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A dark red colored beer. A beautiful big creamy beige head. It has an increible aroma, sweet, caramel, raisins, some other dark fruits, very complex. The taste is soft in the begining, after that notes of fruit, a touch of caramel. In the back some wood and dark fruit. Nevertheless this is the light Rochefort. The color is not that dark, the alcohol is the fewest. This is a very good complex great beer.
