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.

Panzerfaust (679) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle from Whole Foods Market, Coddingtown, Santa Rosa, California. Pours a dark brown color with reddish hues and a giant long-legged off-white head that diminishes slowly into a perfect lacing and film. Smell is yeasty, fruity with some earthy and lactic touches. Very complex! It has notes of toffee, milk, dulce-de-leche, blueberries, blackberries, black currants, raisins, overripe apples, liquor, banana with palm syrup, sour cherries... I could keep going all day. The earthy smell is more obvious after a while. Taste is incredibly complex and intense, showing different aspects in every part of the mouth. Sweet and fruity flavor that shows notes of berries, cognac, honey, toffee, earth and nuts. This is a collossal Abt. Highly warming, it leaves a trail of warmth down the throat and the esophagus. Finish shows some booze. Different and so much more complex than anything else I’ve tried so far.

Aus der Flasche in Lüttich. Glänzende dunkle Farbe und fester cremiger Schaum. Intensives Aroma nach Dörrobst, Vanille und Rum. Schwerer Geschmack. Extrem vollmundig. Großes Bier!

2013 bottle pour..produces a medium caramel brown color with a massive amount of particles that eventually float downward..pretty solid tan creamy head..nose is abundant with dark fruit..plums..raisins..currants..brown sugar...wow the mouthfeel on this is impressive..bold yet subdued..quite light bodied..can barely get any trace of the very high abv in play..creamy texture..long solid finish that is full of the dark fruit reminiscent of the style..excellent..

Franckg (648) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2015
Embouteillée 20/12/2014, bue après 11 mois. Robe d’un brun rougeâtre presque opaque surmonté d?un épais col de mousse blanchâtre et crémeux. Dentelle très collante et laiteuse. Arômes de malt à la fois grillé et caramélisé, baies confites, levures, pruneaux et sucre brun. Comme la 6 et 8, l’alcool ne paraît aucunement. C’est doux, sucré et d’une belle complexité. En bouche, c’est fidèle au nez mais encore mieux. Un amalgame de fruits foncés: mûres, cerises noires, pruneaux et raisins rouges, le tout saupoudré de sucre brun. Un bon fond malté qui s’affirme tout en douceur dans un style mielleux. Notes de chocolat au lait, noix de pecan et légère torréfaction. Une complexité monstre. Le tout dans une belle texture onctueuse et un corps bien rond. 11.2% d’alcool? La pureté des saveurs le cache habilement. Sans contredit une des meilleures trappistes.

Ffelipe (59) - BRAZIL - NOV 19, 2015
Aroma complexo, doce, levemente tostado, alcoólico e frutado. Sabor também complexo doce, amargo e alcoólico. O amargor não persiste o que torna a cada gole único. Incrível, a melhor que já degustei.

Peter_L (1217) - SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2015
Flaska inköpt för ca ett år sedan. Mycket fruktig doft av dadlar, fruktkaka och russin. Intensiv och fyllig smak. Eldig och god munkänsla.

Ippopodio (43) - ITALY - NOV 14, 2015
Signori e signore: Madame la trappista! Di un colore bruno intenso con riflessi carminio, mostra una schiuma abbondante e persistente color cappuccino. Al naso c'è un universo di aromi: banana matura, pera, ciliegia, caramello ed un sentore di Porto riconducibile al robusto tenore di alcol. In bocca non si smentisce, ritornano i sentori di frutta rossa e legno e nel finale una secchezza che riporta alla liquirizia insieme al cioccolato leggero che si percepisce unitamente al velluto di un corpo morbido e caldo. Una poesia da bere.
