UPDATED: NOV 21, 2008 This beer is very different from anything Iíve ever had. Very sweet and rich, a slight wine-like quality. Very high alcohol content, but it cannot even be tasted. I could definitely taste plum, but I also noticed some nutty and honey flavors. A little too sweet/creamy for my taste, but still an excellent beer, and quite an accomplishment to get this mix of flavors and also cover such a high alcohol content.

very dark brown with decent tan head. dark fruits and alcohol dominate the aroma. very complex flavors...dark fruits, malt, yeast, maybe some honey....very well balanced and not overly boozy considering th 11.3% very very good a must try for anyone.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - MAY 17, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 Deep amber/brown color with a small quickly diminishing off white head. Aromas of dark grapes and notes of alcohol. Taste is of sweet fruits, grapes, sweet malts, with undertones of licorice and alcohol. Very nicely carbonated with a medium to full body. Very well rounded and balanced.

mkofron (155) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Liquid crack. Similar to me as the Rochefort 8 but with a stronger alcohol kick. The 11.3% is masked very well. Excellent excellent beer.

garthicus (2861) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 14, 2007
(Bottle in Porterhouse) Poured with only a hint of a head, a deep almost brandy like -cherry cum fruit aroma was a wonderful surprise. A sharp but sweet initial taste with a smooth and long finish, the alcohol is immediately apparant and I could feel the effect straight away, nice, but only for the one bottle per session!

petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2007
Huge head on a dark brown beer.aroma of sweet, dried fruit, cow manure and alcohold in a beautiful blend. The taste is of sweet malt, figs, banana, alcohol, tobacco and a nice bitterness. Full but drinkable. íMineralí-like taste, too. The palate is lively and nice and complements this big and flavourfull beer perfectly. Very complex

bleeng (1651) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle at Palace in Poperinge. Served in old Rochefort glass-sweet. Opaque,dark color. Thick brown, sweet, chocolate, coffee, aromas from the earth abound. Goes down way too easy for such a strong beer. In the league with Westvleteren 12. Wonderful.

horto008 (180) - Alabama, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Iím sipping a glass as Iím writing this review -- really. It took a trip to England for me to find this brew courtesy of the state of Alabama being in the dark ages. As for the beer, I really enjoy the sweetness of it. Looking at the alcohol content, I expected it to be a little bitter, but it didnít fail to surprise me. In the glass it has a moderate head (not too thick) and a dark nearly opaque color. It wasnít too thick and had an exceptional taste, feel, and complexity. I would put it in the top 3 beers Iíve ever consumed. If only I could have gotten a case back to the states.
