Rochefort Trappistes 8 (330ml Bottle)
Dark colour, full and very impressive taste. Strong plum, raisin, and black currant palate, with ascending notes of vinousness and other complexities.
Poured very dark brown with hints of red. Off white head was huge but left quickly. No lacing was a minus but the vast amount of sediment was a plus. Very cool. You can smell a ton of spices and alcohol. Flavor of alcohol was strong but the spices and grapefruit feel was nice. Great beer.
