UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Best Belgian I’ve ever drank. Very dark, almost an apple cider look. Aroma and taste: a cornucopia of malty fruits and sweets. Apples, plums, bananas, licorice. Alcohol is masked beautifully, and the finish is spectacularly smooth and pleasant. Leaves taste of a creamy, nut brown. One of the best, most complex beers I’ve ever had.

This is an awesome beer. It is high in carbonation. It almost seems like a soft drink. The flavor is exquisite. This is locally available every day. The Cuvee van de Kaiser and the Westvleteren Abt 12 are not so easy to obtain. They can be a memory for the better part of a year. It is good to know that a quality brew that comes close is out there. A wide range of flavor with a distinct fore, during, and after taste. The odor is not strong. The palate effect is not diminished by the lack of smell. I was only disappointed in the lack of a lingering aftertaste. It fades far too quickly. Keep spooling and swishing it in your mouth because once you swallow the flavor just won’t last long enough. Of course, that is a tribute to the great tastes to be found in this beer. There are so many great Belgian beers. This one’s flavor is similar to a number of the very best and just a little bit better than nearly every one of the others.

Dark brown color with a large quick diminishing head. Aroma of malts and fruits. Flavor much the same but with some strong hints of bananas. A great Belgium. I love this beer.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2007 Rating #100. Pours a dark brown with a frothy, root beer-like head that diminishes to a thin cap clinging to the snifter. Nice lacing. The nose is heavy on the malts with a candy-like aroma resembling raisin bread and dark fruits. The alcohol is also quite pronounced. The mouthfeel is a medium-full body, sticky and soft with a lightly sour alcohol finish. The flavor is quite "deep". In fact ,it is so well blended that initially it’s difficult to pull out individually distinguishable flavors. After a few more sips the flavor begins to define itself for me: dark fruits and pepper, almost like a dry red wine, with creamy effervescence and concluding with a smoky, dry, lightly nutty finish.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2011 33 cl bottle. Dark brown color, beautiful beige, creamy head. Aroma is fruit and sweet dark malt, coffe, yeast. Favor is raisin, plum, dark malt, liqourice, coffe, alcohol... Lovely, but I had expected the alcohol to be more integrated.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2009 Poured a dark brown. Smell was dark fruits and some candy sugar. Taste was much the same with some spice and raisin, plum and some bready characteristics. Very nice belgian. Complex and enjoyable.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2009 My first Trappist beer. Poured a dark brown with a solid head. The aroma was very complex of roasted malt and fruit. It may sound crazy but to me, the smell of pineapple was very strong. The flavor was candy-like. At first, sweet malt with gentle carbonation and a dry finish. Not my favorite style of beer but still very good.

ChainGangGuy (4721) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2007
UPDATED: APR 12, 2008 Appearance: Pours out dark brown, almost purple-ish. Generous head gave way to a thin layer of bubbles Smell: Generous bouquet of sweet caramel malts and candy sugar under a blanket of dark fruit (particularly raisins). Some sweet, juicy nectarines. A dash of spicy yeastiness. A touch of leather. All of it smelling quite "Belgian". Note: the high alcohol is surprisingly subdued in the aroma. Taste: A well blended, outstanding example of a quadruppel. This beer features brown sugar, black cherries, anise, raisins, and toasted toffee malts. There’s a great depth of varying flavors, so pay attention, but don’t forget to savor. All of this gives way to a long-lived spicy, white pepper finish. Mouthfeel: Strikingly smooth, very rich, and with a low, gentle amount of carbonation. Drinkability: A+++ Power Beer. Would buy from again! As good as folks say, perhaps better. Especially for me, someone who’s not overly partial to the style. (Edit: After trying several beers within this style during a blind tasting on May 21st, 2007, Rochefort 10 was the unanimous, clear-cut winner.)

Dedoulequeen07 (135) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2007
One of the first beers which i tried. This is certainly one of the most complex beers i have had. Brown beer witha slight reddish tinge with a tighe white head giving good lacing. Aroma is of fruit christams cake, raisin, nuts, dates with sweet candy sugar and rich malt. Flavour is highly intense with long lingering flavours of rich fruit cake, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt toasted grain with a warm sweet oliy, alcohol finish. It is difficult to explain the sheer volume of flavour from this beer. Definetly one to savour- a taste sensation!
