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-Just great, I mean great--I’m sure I’ll just duplicate the 1000 other reveiwers. Good frothy head with sediments found in it. The color of the beer was almost the color of raisins, but a bit darker. The aroma had loads of fruit, especially plum. The taste, well it was perfect, with no notice of the alcohol.

aroma has hints of red wine; nice light brown - dark amber tones with heavy carbonation. initial alcohol taste, but malt flavour quickly takes over including milk chocolate, molasses and hazelnut overtones. definitely for sipping and not for the faint of heart.

BenDover (217) - Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Pours very dark, creamy and thick yellow/tan head, very complex aroma. Flavor hides the alcohol well for a quad, very complex, hint of bananas and other types of fruit, sweet, no notice of hops at all. An awesome beer, one of my favorites.

Pours almost black. Creamy tan head. Rich malty aroma of raisins and red wine; no noticeable hop bouquet. Complex flavor of sweet figs and maple syrup; fizzy, creamy body.

From my archives, February ’06. Pours dark with a thick head. Aroma of many types of fruit with some yeast. Taste is the same but alcohol is a bit overpowering. I like the 8 better.

Beautiful aroma. Plums, blackberries, blackcurrants, cherry(wine), and some raspberries. It’s all in there! Very complex taste as well as aroma, but the fruit and berries disseapears a little in the taste, maybe because of the high level of alcohol. Tastes a bit like a mix of a belgian ale and some cherrywine. The alcohol is, as I already have indicated, quite obvious, but it doesn’t make the beer bad, just more slow to drink. The aftertaste is, maybe again because of the level of alcohol, like some sort of berries-liqueur, but after that it turns into a pleasant bitter hopping.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2007 Worth the 100 rating for its complexity alone; aroma of caramel and spices; flavor of toffee, raisins, something fruity, spices, etc., etc., etc.; alcohol is very present; a little acidic on the tongue; overall a GREAT brew.

Rich aroma - toffee, raisins etc. Pours a darkish red/brown. Can taste the alcohol, but it doesn’t take away from the complexity of the tase. Finishes smooth.
