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.

Ridiculously delicious. I honestly find it difficult to identify the flavours because it all seems to work so well together. Chocolate alcohol-infused plums blended with a touch of brown sugar? Maybe someone dropped a fig in there as well. Superb.

I managed to land this in my lounge and put it on the list. What a tremendous brew. Strong concentrated spicy fruit flavor with a nice lingering finish. I enjoyed it with a ribeye medium rare and a cab-demi glace. I see why it is such a highly rated and rare beer to find.

33 cl. bottle. Saved this one for my #500. Poured a gloriously muddy, murky and chunky brown color saturated with yeasty goodness with a frothy beige head. Aromas of smooth toffee/cakey malts with dark dried fruits such as cherry, currant, plum, and dark red wine grapes. Very rich and concentrated dark fruit flavors throughout a heavily earthy malt and yeast foundation, with some prickly vinous and black pepper notes punctuating the finish. The yeast in the body provides not just a great mouthfeel, but also a satisfying "stomachfeel," as if one were receiving special nourishment. This is an exceptionable beer that makes you smile and exude a warm glow of physical and spiritual satisfaction after each sip. Gloria!

A great on for #100. Have had other times but for the past few months it has been difficult to locate. Dark brown or russte pour with an off white head. Smells of plum or prune and other dried fruits, a little sweet finish, does not seem as strong as alcoholic content lists but that could be because of this brews excellence.

At first, at the shop, I glanced at this bottle and sure enough it matched the picture on this site. Then looked at the price... 6.69 for 1 bottle?!?! So, I gave in. Wow, Definately the best beer I’ve had. Strong walnut, raisin, almost cinnamon flavor. Not too heavily carbinated, goes down really smoothly. Leaves a bit of a tingly warm feeling in my chest, probably due to the 11 % alc/vol. Love the remnants at the bottom, gotta give in a little stir to ensure that your last gulp gets the full intended flavor. BELLISIMA

Creamy, tan head; gorgeous violet color. Aroma: dark, dark, dark, with spices, dark fruits, grapes, berries,strawberries...distinctly port-like,plummy, raisinish. Terriffically strong, incredibly warming, the feel and the heat of a glass of cognac! Absolutely perfect!

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2012 Poured a big, brown head. Opaque brown with sediment left in the bottle. Wow, great nose. Fruits and spices that blend perfectly. A big, beautiful beer.

This is a truly great beer. For me this is also one of overall richest beers I have ever tasted. So much so, that alough it is brilliant, I couldn’t drink more than one bottle at a time. Fantastic beer!

Pours deep brown with solid foamy lite-brown head. The alcohol is apparent on the aroma and and at first whiff seems to dominate, but it is merely just one scent in the bouquet. Figs and raisins are definately present on the nose as well as some bready, yeasty hints. Plums, peaches and raisins are on the palate, but there are also subtle hints of caramel and lingering spice:
