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: APR 10, 2007 Bottle. Tons of complexity in this one through entire beer. Pour is murky brown and copper. Thin head fades quickly, but remnants on edge of glass. Aroma and taste are malt, spice, alcohol, and almost a sweet syrup (tasted more of this as it warmed). Love the layered flavors in this one.

Absolutely delicious. I didnít realize what I was getting till after I bought it then read the reviews on this site, and I most certainly agree. My new favorite by far.

Definitely a strong brew. Smooth, Malty, and very complex. I could sense the alcohol coming through as the beer got a bit warmer. I found the particles floating around rather interesting. Very unique.

thin tan head with a dark molasses-root beer like appearance, slight sedimentation in the beer, nose is of fig and plum very strong aroma. flavor is powerful, of rasens and other sweet flavors, very nice aftertaste. a beer of great depth and complexity, very very good

Cold 330ml bottle: Pours a dark opaque brown color with a thin layer of frothy tan bubbles and some lacing. Aroma and taste are of roasted malts, dark fruit, molasses and floral hops. Creamy texture, prickly carbonation and full bodied. Ending is dry and bittersweet with some alcohol bite and sour notes.

pours a deep brown with almost no head. aromas of dried pit fruits, molasses and spice. aromas carry through into the flavor, cherries, brown sugar, sweet malt. almost no hops. nicely carbed with a bubbley mouthfeel. very good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2006 Best damn beer I íve ever had. Iíve had a lot of types from all over the world. Iíve not yet had Westvleteren, but I find it hard to believe anything can be better than this beer. This is a shining jewel in the beer world. It is the Holy Grail (or is that íHoly Ale?). Best damn beer Iíve ever had!!!
