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.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2007 33 cl bottle dated 060710. Pours a deep, somewhat hazy burgundy with a thick, creamy light tan head that lasted through the entire glass with excellent lacing. Strong aroma of plums, raisins and malt. Flavor is sweet with all of the aromas also present in flavor. There is a warming alcohol finish not unlike the finish on a glass of brandy. Really, really good !

The best beer I have tried so far. Amazingly smooth, yet full of rich complex flavors. Way too expensive though.

Skidds (252) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2008 I was suprised to find this in Canada. I’m certainly glad I did though. Tasted strongly of chocolate, malts, caramel, fruit such as prune and raisons. My only complaint is how high it is in alcohol, as much as there is going on in this beer, it’s still very present (11.3%).

Much like the 6 and 8, this stuff rocks! Again, start to finish this ale is total enjoyment. Similar to the 6 with the exception that I FEEL this beer warming in my stomach (alcohol?). Pours almost opaque brown with lots of small, white sediment. Very delicate lacing pattern, oily and quick. Promounced, estery nose with suble hints of spicy fruits and something unexplainable - like alcohol-soaked bananas? Complex flavors abound - sweet caramel, slight nutty bitterness, fruits, spices, sweet alcohol. Best consumed slowly - its quite filling and alcoholic. Quite literally a liquid meal of happy stupor! One can easily get into trouble with this one-drinkable and alcoholic...Nice!

Beer pours deep brown with almost white head. The aroma is intense and fantastic: lots of chocolate, malts, fruit, and alcohol - hints of fortified wine and dried cherries. The flavor starts bittersweet and thick on the tongue. Lots of malts, some roasted flavors, some dried fruits (cherries, raisins). Hop bitterness creeps in towards the middle and end of the flavor - but in an exceptionally balanced way. The beer has a long finish that is somewhat dry. The mouthfeel is very thick, but not syrupy or distracting. The carbonation lightens it enough to make it quite palatable.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 Poured slightly cloudy dark amber color with a thin, slightly tan head. Aroma of pit fruit, brown sugar, yeast, and a slight spice/pepper smell also. Began with a sweetness backed by a raisiny taste. Finished with a slight bitterness and a minor amount of heat from alcohol.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2006
33 cl bottle, ’bbe’ Aug 2010. Chocolate brown with a dark mahogany shine and a pretty stable beige froth. Aromas of chocolate, nuts, cherries, a hint of bananas... Earthy and malty taste with chocolate and a background of dark fruit. A long bitter aftertaste and alcoholic mouthfeel.

One of the best beers I’ve tasted, fruity with a smooth light bitter finish, light in the mouth and refreshingly crisp for a darker beer. Awesome a top 5 for sure.
