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.

grease (42) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Fresh bottle purchased and consumed in Bruges, Belgium. Wonderfully creamy with excellent roast background married well with the interesting fermentation characters. Subtle phenols of bubble gum and clove heavily masked by dark fruits (plum, prune). Massively complex and delectable. One of the worlds greatest when fresh.

Thick, dark pour with nice lacing. Let stand for a bit after pouring so the dregs can fall out. Rather sweet, fruity/licorice taste. Very very good, but also expensive ($6.50/bottle @ wholesaler).

bottle- what can I say? It smells of liquorice- looks and sounds very much like a cola of some sort. It tastes, gorgeous. In every sense of the word. If I could make love to a beer., It would probabaly be this one. wow. Its sweet. but balanced. Debatably the best beer I have ever had.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2007 Bottle at bar volo. Easily on my top list of beers that I have had the opportunity to taste and drank way too many times. Creamy mouthfeel with brown sugar on the tongue. A rush of plum, caramel, cardamom, coriander and raisins, with a sweet chocolate finish. Nose is flowery with vanilla and oak on the scent. One of my favourites to drink.

Bottle. Pours a muddy chocolate brown color with a huge creamy off white head, nice lacing. Aroma is dough, nuts, dried fruit, chocolate. Flavor is figs, yeast, dried cherries, prunes, malt, chocolate. Palate is full, silky smooth, easy drinking, yeasty, dry finish. Wow! Whole lot going on!

Stine (1713) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Pours to a thick chocolatey chestnut brown, hissing and moaning as it awakens from its slumber. Wooden aromas with toffee and caramel, dried peach and pear...just massive. Dry nutty flavor like brazil nuts. Nutmeg and cinnamon. Plum, raisin and some peppermint. Dark chocolate. Silk and oak impressions in the mouth imitate the softest scotch. Clearly theres no reason to try to ciphon every last flavor out of this brew or to labor to write them down. But its spectacularly rich and emotive, deserving of any and all grandstanding it precipitates. Wonderous.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2015 Bottled at Bar Asterix in So Paulo. Pours deep hazy brown with a creamy white head. Aroma is very complex with notes of chocolate, caramel and dry fruits. Full body with a complex strong taste. Alcohol is noticeable. Taste is spice, with notes of brown sugar and dry fruits. Excellent beer.
