The top product from the Rochefort Trappist brewery. Dark color, full and very impressive taste. Strong plum, raisin, and black currant palate, with ascending notes of vinousness and other complexities.

0.33l bottle. Very dark brown, almost black body with a nice beige head that dissappears quite quickly. Very complex aroma with caramel, reisins, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, yeasts and floral hops. Taste is amazing as well. Lots of caramel, fruity hops, coffee and chocolate. Really sweet when you sip it, but the aftertaste is hoppy. Warming alcohol. Amazing beer. After a while, lots of sediment gathers at the bottom of the glass.

Quite simply in my top 3 of all time favourite beers. Outstanding in all aspects.

Martin243 (929) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle at home, served at room temperature, poured into a Westmalle glass. Deep dark brown with clumpy tan head. Prune and dried fruit aroma. Fruitcake flavour, cheese, shiraz...Rather delicious. Full bodied, thick, long juicy finish. Top notch.

smmaaren (389) - NORWAY - OCT 10, 2015
33 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. It’s not often I have a chance to test a 100/100-beer. Hazy dark brown with a beige head. Aromas: where to begin? Fruits, chocolate, coffee, raisins, hops, nuts, alcohol, apples and more. Taste is sweet, alcoholic. Lively carbonation - almost like champagne. Rich and complex beer. Top notch!

Moebbels (518) - FINLAND - OCT 9, 2015
Pours an otherwise fairly clear dark ruby body, but huge solid climps of yeast come and sink to the bottom of the glass. This one had absoutely no head, despite the high carbonation. Nose has intense notes of plum, raisin, sherry, The taste is quite sweet with some dark caramel and chokolate notes and some warmth from the alcohol. The finish is fairly dry and somewhat bitter. High carbonation and rich palate, quite easy to drink despite the high alcohol content and warmth that it imparts. Very well made, complex and balanced beer. Too bad there was no head, otherwise close to perfection.

CurbDog (45) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2015
Massive mocha head. Fades slowly, nice lacing. Murky reddish brown. Raisin, fig, plum, alcohol aroma. Matching flavours with dried red fruit, brown sugar, warmth, slightly rummy. Med-full body. High carbonation. Dry but lingering sweet finish. Complex and rich (opposite of me).

Nog zo’n typische Belgische Trappist. Een donkere kleur, weinig schuimkraag.

Grisza77 (181) - Poznań, POLAND - OCT 2, 2015
Brunatne, mętne piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i redukuje się do pierścionka przy brzegu szkła. Aromat przyjemny, słodkawy, alkoholowy, owocowy, rodzynki i śliwka. W smaku z jednej strony słodkie, wyklejające całą jamę ustną, a z drugiej strony wytrawne, ziołowe, alkoholowe. Goryczka wysoka, ziołowa, alkoholowa. Ogólnie bardzo udane piwo, z każdym łykiem czuć ciężar gatunku, ale mimo to jest ono dość pijalne, jednak u mnie przewagę o dosłownie włos ma z tego browaru "8".
