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.

Bottle dont know the age but it’s good till 2011. Pours a copper, brown, muddy beer. Taste is very carbonated. Smells like a sweet mix of raisons, dark rum, sweet apples, sour apples, and grapes. Taste is of all those combined, and topped off with wood, and a fine baked marshmellow cherry devil cake. Lacing on this beer didnt stick as well as i expected. NO malt a bit of hops and a lot of flavor i wish i could describe. I will return with an aged version of this masterpiece.

Pours cloudy brown with a pretty large head that’s mostly lasting. Sweet fruit and malt aroma. Sweet malty taste with prunes and just a hint of alcohol. Syrupy texture.

From bottle. Pours a deep brown with reddish tints and thin tna head. Nose is nicely fruity with brown sugar. Flavor follows with added spices. A little bit of alcohol noticeable. Palate is smooth with active cabonation. Very nice.

very dark with a subdued aroma of toffee, malt and faint citrus. very balanced and structured on the palate. Very complex and flavorful. The alcohol is noticable, but not unpleasant, and the slightly sweet, slightly bitter finish goes on and on.

Bottle, 330ml. A dark black colour with an average-size lasting head. Sweet aroma with some chocolate and toffee. Taste is magnificent: very malty, strong chocolate, caramel, slightly woody. A rather sweet, bitter finish with a fair amount of alcohol. Somewhat tannic with some dark fruit (plum, raisin/currant). Moderate carbonation (just right). If I was guessing the ABV, I’d say about 8% - doesn’t seem as alcoholic as it is. Rather like a super-charged Imperial Stout. This is finely balanced and surprisingly easy to drink.

duffman462 (175) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2006
Pours a very dark color with a big head. Flavor is velvety, with lots of toffee. Mine had lots of floaties in it too, which I love. The complexity of this beer is amazing. Also some citrus and fruit coming to mind....and just a hint of alcohol. Yea, the alcohol is really well hidden for 11.3%. This is an outstanding beer, one of the best I have had.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Very murky brown with off-white froth. Aromas of a million spices and fruits. Bursting with flavors. Sweet fruits mostly. Not much carbonation and the alcohol is very well hidden. Fairly full body and excellent mouthfeel. Incredible.

Had this one and the 8..The main difference is the taste of the alcohol content. The 10 being a little stronger than the 8.Still a very drinkable high quality Trappist brew I highly recommend picking these up if you can find them sweet,malts,spice,creaminess it’s all here a true pleasure for sure!
