4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A deep red beer with a fantastic head. The aroma is sweet and fruity - a very complex aroma. The flavor is very fruity and very complex with a good sweetness and plum-notes. Only slightly bitter. A really good tasting beer. The beer also helps a great sauce.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 33 cl) In this original version simply called "Abbaye des Rocs" - all other versions are newer inventions. Very dark brown with a frothy and very lively beige head. Flavourwise we’re talking Trappist-territory here. Fantastic complex malty notes full of dried fruits, caramel, chocolate, used diapers, candi sugar - well, you name it. This beer has got pretty much everything, and by each sip you discover a new senasation. Extremely complex with a nice, warming alcohol. A classic indeed. 301297

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Dark amber colour, huge foamy head. Aroma is complex, plum, alcohol and lots more. The flavour was not too good compared with aroma, very sweet and smoked hay. The flavour didn’t impress me, though it got a quite good rating it’s mainly because the aroma was lovely!

Cloudy brown beer, little pale tan head. Airy palate, softish. Minerals. All about the malt here - slightly tangy and with a little cream. A trace of dried fruits. Semi dry finish. Decent for the style.
