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.

WaddlingPlatypus (112) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2016
330ml bottle. Dark amber with an off-white bubbly head. Slightly hoppy aroma, mildly sawdust-like. Bitter flavour, with hops and notes of brandy. Not the greatest Trappist I have ever encountered.

Samtzu (121) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 12, 2016
330ml bottle. Huge aroma which is slightly sweet and has notes of something spicy. The flavour is much lighter body then I expected but the flavour profile is monstrous. While there are many flavours I am finding it very difficult to name any.

Satyroneto (294) - BRAZIL - JUN 10, 2016
Cor marrom escuro com tonalidade caramelo e sedimentos finos em suspensão; espuma bege de alta formação e persistência de uma fina camada com lacing razoável (no copo adequado a persistência e lacing diminuem). Aroma de frutas secas, frutas cristalizadas, nozes e pimenta; em segundo plano notas vinificadas e álcool. Sabor inicialmente de frutas secas e cristalizadas e nozes, acompanhado de uma picância intensa e deliciosa; evolui para um meio discreto de vinho do Porto com final alcoólico amadeirado e de amargor terroso; retrogosto alcoólico, amadeirado, terroso e picante. Corpo sedoso, carbonatação média. Incrível drinkability.

Comparable à la Westvleteren 12, mais beaucoup plus accessible. Un grand classique, qui existe depuis toujours... et pour toujours... amen!

EugeneStraver (161) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2016
20160605 Home; 33 cl bottle; BB 20210316: A bright rubbish colour with a good brownish foam layer which stays very good for a high alcoholic beer. The complex smell is sweet caramel, chocolate, alcohol; Red/dark fruit (raisins, black berries); dark malt. The taste is even more complex besides the alcohol and the sweetness. A malty bitterness which give the beer a mocca-chocolate taste with dark fruit (raisins and black berries). Also a liquor-like feeling. Just a little more carbonisation as a normal beer. A malty bitterness with some hops in the aftertaste. A nice complex beer for a finish of a beer tasting party.

6an är bra, 8an bättre men 10an är lätt bäst. Mycket doft och smak i denna! Torkade frukter, sötma, kryddor, karamell, jäst. Riktigt bra, en öl man gärna njuter av i lugn och ro! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
