COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Truly one of the worlds greatest beers! So complex, demanding but also rewarding especilly at wintertime. I have enjoyed this gem for many years and am just drinking a young example with the frothy almost white head and frizziness typical of Rochefort’s being drunk soon after purchase. This bottle has a best before date in 2019! and I have even kept examples after this date. They age exceptionally well, becoming less lively, but even more complex...actually I prefer them that way.

Belle robe brune. Mousse bien. Très fruitée, épicée, longue en bouche avec un arrière goût vanillé. Carbonatation plutôt fine. Une excellente trappiste.

This tedeemed my view of this beer series. I appreciate the malty brew, because the flavor profile is of alcohol, with medium creamy sweetness. The softer palate is a fairly long finish with a caramel/cereal essence. The ppalate also has a bit of dried candy and apricot and a hint if banana. The finish is semi dry and the aftertast finishes boozy on the whiskey side. This is pleasant and the sips call in to fave yet the yearning for another immediate sip- well done.

Lovely foamy warm white head. Mouthfeel is smooth but not oily. Slightly burnt taste but alot of dark fruits also. Warm finish with lingering taste. Great!

It is almost a perfect beer in its style. It pours brown in a smooth colour and appearance with soft and thin amber head. Excellent smell and taste with chocolate remarks. One of the best beers I have ever tasted.

Bottle. Going from previous notes, smooth with no lingering aftertaste. One of the best Quadrupels I have had.

Ysok02 (77) - MOns, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2015
Robe brune. Nez très épicé et complexe, sur des notes de malt, de houblon et d’épices. Bouche tout en rondeur et en élégance, malgré la puissance alcoolique, longue finale caramelisée. Une bière impressionnante de longueur et de complexité.

DroolYeast (314) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle @ home. Aroma of vinous raisins, dried fruits, caramel. Hazy brown with small off-white head. Virtually no head lasting. Moderate sweetness, moderate bitterness. Full body, oily texture, lively carbonation, long finish.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2015 Délicieux gout de banane en entrée et en arrière bouche. Une couleur brune de fines bulles, un must.

Excellent Trappist. Sweetness, fruit. But little sticks alcohol in taste and aftertaste
