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.

The high alcohol percentage shouldn’t scare you, it’s a very easy to drink beer with one of the greatest tastes ever! Dark brown beautiful color and the taste is very complex but extremely nice to drink. The fruits explode in your mouth while you can taste a sufficient bitterness.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Hazy brown, low quickly diminishing beige head. Aroma of liqueur, cherry, very alcoholic, fruity, notes of honey, date honey. Heavy cherry flavor, very sweet, malty, yeasty, woody. Lively carbonation. Full body. Sweetish sticky aftertaste. Very nice.

Bootlegger007 (44) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2014
Licorice aroma, cloudy dark brown with a small diminishing head, complex flavours very malty, long lasting flavour, has low carbonation very light to drink - smooth, considering the ABV was not at all overpowering it gives a great warming sensation

Served cool (set out of Fridge for 30 mins) Beer pours hazy dark brown, has a tall pillowy head and a carbonation strong enough to make the sediment "dance." Damp earthy/chocolate aroma. Creamy, slick feel with a medium-heavy body. Sweet, dark flavour with gentle a very bitterness. Very good beer.

Aroma is subtle, lightly fruity, nice dark coffee color with full head and lacing. Taste starts fruity and sweet with a full stout taste. Very complex, enjoyable beer.

leghorn99 (11) - Livorno, ITALY - AUG 17, 2014
Colore mogano scuro, leggermente opalescente per il lievito in sospensione, con schiuma color caramello, fine e persistente. Il naso: profumi netti ed intensi di banana, frutta secca, caffè tostato, liquirizia e pepe; dire che è ricca, multiforme, esplosiva non rende completamente l’idea. E’ una vera prelibatezza. 11,3°: la potenza sì, ma in assoluto controllo ed equilibrio. In bocca è calda e strutturata, morbida e avvolgente; moderatamente frizzante si fa gustare con lentezza e metodicità. Le sensazioni del palato: malto, sempre e dovunque, frutta matura, spezie, pepe e cannella, un po’ di cioccolato e liquiriza, lievito, ma non in ordine sparso: ognuno di questi al momento giusto e al posto giusto, senza doppioni né sovrapposizioni. La corsa è delicata, calda di alcool, generosa di sensazioni: ancora la liquirizia, l’amarino del cioccolato, un delicato luppolo finale che la rende armoniosa e armonica. Difficile fare meglio e trovare di meglio. Da servirsi a temperatura rigorosamente di cantina.

It looks and smells good. Taste a little bit sweet (caramel, fruity), but mostly heavy bitter notes of chocolate and alcohol. It is good balanced. Although it’s clearly a good beer, it fails to interest me.

Thick head. Lots of sediment. Dark espresso in color. Heavy malt smell up front, hint of smoked alderwood and fresh clover. Velvety texture with nicely balanced hops. Prominent flavor is nutmeg followed by citrusy hop bitters rounding out with sweet caramel malt.

High quality, delicious and complex beer. Smooth to drink and hard to predict amazing taste from a relatively subtle aroma. Very dark and opaque in color with thick frothy head and heavy sediment.
