COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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, pours a deep cloudy brown with a nice tan head that slowly turns patchy. Wow, the aroma grabs your attention from across the room, and is bursting with plum, raisin, apricot, blackberry, and too many more dark fruits to even put my finger on. The taste is creamy and rich, slight carbonation, with plenty to ponder on the palate, and just a touch of alcohol blending in. Easy to see why this is at the top of the beer world.

Holy crap. I was surprised that I could even find this locally. The flavor is amazing, the smell is amazing, and best of all is the taste as it goes down. I appreciate it as one of the best beers in the world, even if it isnt my favorite to sit around and drink. Try it and appreciate the fine craftsmanship.

Great dark raisin color and aroma. A sublime taste of raisin and plums backed by the wonderful warmth of the high alchol. Put me down for the ascending notes of vinousness and other complexities too. good finish on the palate. Great beer.

bottle: pors a dark brown cleaner looking than the other rocheforts, with nice fizzy off white head. the aroma is of dark dark fruits raisins for sure and sweet sugars also some vinous qualities. flavour is dark fruits raisin and plum with a nice bitter finish that is kinda dry. i cant get over how good the dark fruit taste is. fantastic.

Upon getting the first whiff of this brew, I immediately thought of plums, wine and raisins. Fruit and bitterness mix, with a bit more carbonation than I think necessary, to make one incredible beer. As close to perfect that I have tasted so far.

One of the best beers ive ever tried. Tastes of chocolate, roasted malts, fruits (raisins, plums). Nice carbonation. Alcohol can be tasted but it blends nicely.

This is pretty much the king. Low carbonation with a nose of alcohol, raisns, and other dark fruits. This beer has a lot going on. All of this is complimented by just enough bitterness to put this as THE classic beer. I don’t know if there is a better beer. But the search continues.

Really kicks you in the ass. I don’t know if I’d go so far as to give it a 100, but definitely a beer I’d get again. A big fan of quadrupels, this one has hints of chocolate and fruit.
