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.

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.

Large bottle from the back of my beer fridge served with the New Years’ Day bowl games. Bottle is dated stamped Oct. 2014. Initially served at about 48-50F but improved with warming. Body is a deep reddish-brown, more or less clear excepting a large amount of suspended particles, some of which are rather large. The suspended particles really detract from the appearance, but i have previously encountered excellent Belgian beers with this trait. The particles had no detectable effect on mouthfeel. Aroma: excellent; rich, fruity and complex. Changed with warming. Flavor: a harmonious blend of a multitude of flavors, including dates, raisins, dark bread, roast nuts, toffee and dried cherries. Feel: medium-full body with light carbonation.
