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.

DuffMan (7845) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Murky medium brown with a tight light brown head. Sweet aromas of dark fruits, sherry, cocoa. Flavours of milk chocolate, dates, sponge toffee, finishing with a light fruity acidity. Incredibly drinkable and smooth, with a rising complexity as the journey progresses. Exceptional.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Serving: 330 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a murky brown with a small and short lived tan head. Lots of dried fruit in the nose, fig, prune, and raisin. A little earthiness in the flavor to pair with caramel and the dried fruit notes. Odd finish that seems to coat the tongue. Glad this one didn’t have the protein issues I’ve had in the past.

Moravius (810) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2013
Flasche (33 cl). - Tiefes Rotbraun. Schwere, dunkle Malzsüße, ergänzt durch üppige dunkle Frucht (Kirsche, Sultaninen). Noten von Likör, Bitterschokolade, Nüssen, Holz. Sahniges Mundgefühl; schwer aber nicht klebrig. Im Abgang eine ungewöhnliche, erdige, holzige Herbe, die an einen deutschen Doppelbock erinnert. - Großartiges Bier, das ich wegen seiner reichen Fruchtigkeit einem Doppelbock vorziehe.
