Commercial Description

Abbaye des Rocs Grand Cru has a rich, complex fruit aroma of cherries, golden raisins, peaches, and assorted dried fruit laced with honey and caramel. Smooth, rich flavors reminiscent of cherries dipped in caramel, finishing with notes of dried chocolate, roasted almonds, and a hint of molasses.

    Almost jumped out of the bottle as I started to pour. Was a caramel brown with copper highlights. Eggshell colored head that was very active before settling to a ring of bubbles that left some delicate lacing on the glass. Sediment is also there.

    Smell was of malts, caramel, and candy sugar. Not very strong, seemed sort of subdued.

    Taste was great. Very vinous in character. Strong alcohol presence with a roasted quality. Also raisin in there as well.

    Mouthfeel was almost velvety and went down amazingly smooth. For the amount of alcohol it was not at all harsh. Alcohol does creep but it is a very good beer.
