3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy dark copper body with large, foamy and long-lasting off-white head. Moderate aroma is malty and fruity — plum, pear, raisin and a note of citrusy lemon — along with doughy yeast. Flavor is sweet to start, but turns tart like sour apple and slightly bitter. There is a light mustiness in the finish along with a raw dough flavor. Texture is slightly watery alongside a medium body. Fizzy carbonation. Nice palate. The alcohol shows up at the end.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a very hazy deep brownish red color. Head is a thick white that fades quickly. Aroma is of dark fruit, light chcolate and some floral hop make an appearance. Taste is of dark fruit, some tart grapes, belgian spice, and light stale hops

365 beers in 365 days!
4th beer in an attempt to rate 365 beers over the next year!
Wed May 23st 2007
33ml bottle from Red White & Brew poured into La Trappe glass
Bit of a muddy Brown pour, big head of small bubbles that dissipated to a smaller head that still left a nice quality lacing throughout the whole tasting. Nutty taste that lingered with a nice light-med body taste, but also a slight bit of a chalky taste…perhaps not the best bottle of this, have certainly had better of the dubbel style, and was not up to par with the other two Rochefort Classics
Look for the next 361 beers and for the entire diary on my BeerMagnets website!
Will be trying to go by season and style when possible with special cellared ales on special occasions.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown/orange look with a thick light brown head. Aroma of alchohol and bitter berries and some sour yeast. Flavor has that fermented sourness that i dont really like, other than that it has notes of bitter rasberries and some wheat like sweetness. My least favorite of the 3, but still good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Aroma and appearance were my two favorite aspects of this brew. Beautiful fluffy beige head with phenomenal lacing throughout an entire Trappist glass. Big nose of bananas, cinnamon, some pear, licorice and caramel. I expected more out of the flavor, I was wishing it would live up to the aroma. Still excellent, but quite thin and not much lasting flavor on the palate at all. Alcohol finish is not as subtle as the 10 or 8, but got better as it warmed. Would prefer those over the 6, but you really cant go wrong with any of the Rocheforts
