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.

Bottle. Active as soon as you pop the cap. Pours deep reddish brown, almost khaki head, some lacing dots. Nose is almost wine like, sugary, caramel. Tastes of caramel, wine like again, a little tart but not much. Really smooth a little boozy. Amazing beef.

Aroma is caramel/toffee, malts, mild fruit and earthy. The flavor is caramel/toffee, malts, dark fruit, mild/medium sweetness and a mix of slight fruit funk and warming alcohol in the finish.

Dark brown with thin, lacy head. Sweet and floral aroma with plenty of fruitiness. A very deep and complex flavour. Mostly sweet, dried red fruits but also some bitter cocoa.

11.2 oz bottle. Poured into a tulip....very dark reddish brown and starts with a fluffy off-white head that dissipates into a light lacing head. What a great flavorful and smooth strong ale. Rich ripe fruit, complex malts and a hint of chocolate converge for this Belgian delight. Bottle does read "best before 2-12-2013" - drank on 3-24-2014

Tap at Ashley’s. Muddy brown pour with a 1 finger foamy head that fades to a thick ring and a light film. Aroma is a powerful mix of dark fruit. Plums, Cherries, raisins, banana, figs, light chocolate, and light caramel. Tastes like expected. Dried cherries, plums, figs and chocolate mostly. Finish brings in some banana. Full body. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Very good Belgian Strong but not up there with my favs.
