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: OCT 15, 2006 My current favourite beer while I still wait for a Westy 12. An inspiring and sexy beer which displays ever deepening levels of complexity as it warms from cellar temperatures. Perfectly lingering lacing, brilliantly paired malts with a definate raisin/plum finish and the lingering effect of bliss knowing youíve just sipped a true artisan beer.

TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2006 Pours a dark brown with a nice tan lacing head. Aromo is vinous, dark fruits, candied sugar and dark fruits. Flavor is brown sugar, alcohol, dark fruits with some roastiness in the end. This was a great beer, I can see why it rates so high. Thanks to Fatty for splitting this one with me!

This is a serious beer, almost like a fizzy port. Iíd say its world class rating is deserved.

pours a hazey dark brown color, with a tight cream color head. great nose. hints of hoppy grapes and plums very delicate. the flavor is strong alcohol flavor mixed dwitht the smooth taste of a good brown ale. soft palate. it goes in smooth, hits strong, then flows down gently bruning and warming all the way down.

A friend of mine brought me a couple of these direct from Belgium. So smooth. No way you would know that the alcohol% is so high. Very foamy. Great taste. Excellent

Really canít imagine my adding much to what already has been said - even though I havenít read the other ratings. Sublime and that a beer of this strength can seem SO incredibly smooth is amazing. Liquid silk. Bottled bliss

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 The true champagne of beers. Dances on your tongue. Highly carbonated. Pours reddish brown with tan head. Taste is highly alcoholic. Hoppy and sweet. Slight aroma of berries. Excellent beer but, in my opinion, not quite on par with the St. Bernardus.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 Served in Rochefort glass. An all-time favourite. Complex, fantastic aroma of all things dark + pears. Warming and tasty enough to spend an evening on, although I canít manage to not drink it at once.

Sregnar35 (971) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2005 This is a great belgian, but since I was so impressed by the 8, I was a bit dissapointed with this one. It just feels a bit muted, not quite strong enough to be a poweful abt. Not quite on par with St. Bernardus and Westvleteren.
