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. Dark brown with fluffy tan head that lasts throughout-- really fine carbonation. Clear with a bit of yeast sediment. Balanced nose of dark malt, dark fruits, alcohol, toast, yeast, and bitter chocolate or toffee. Flavor is a wonderful balance of deep, rich malt and fantastic yeast, with a present, but not overwhelming, alcohol warmth. Finish is sticky-sweet and yeasty, like a good dark bread. Outstanding stuff, and well worth the price!

One of my favorite beers. Strong, rich,, deep and complex flavor. It goes great with any meal I’ve tried - mostly grilled hamburgers or steaks. Highly recommended!

When you have some beers in stock and you want to rate number 200 at ratebeer then I choose one of our beer royalties the belgium trappist. This trappist has a beautifull taste it is a real king. Despite the results of the footballmatch Italy - Holland 3:0 it was a perfect beer.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, with off-white head. Notes of dried fruits (raisins/figs), chocolate, and traces of alcohol, in the nose. Wonderful!

A dark cherry brown color with some beige head. Nose is yeast, dark malt, brown sugar, and some alcohol. Taste is a nice mix of caramel malts, vanilla, dark fruit, and yeast. Very complex. Very solid.

Excellent dark brown body, light brown head, leaves an intricate lattice down the inside of your glass. Deep, pleasant malty ale with hints of chocolate, raisin, & spices. A must for any high-grav enthusiast.

DRANK THIS IN A HORIZONTAL WITH A WESTY 12--huge raisin aroma as soon as i opened the bottle, some chocolate and fig. deep brown, thin head that fades down and laces the top of the brew. the body was slightly watery in comparison, with tastes of some chocolate, raisin, and a little bit of red wine flavor going on. slightly bitter on the end, and the abv is a little apparent. if i were drinking this alone, i might feel different, but next to a westy, this just is a bit of a disappointment.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2008 11.2 oz bottle. Poured a dark brown with a this off white head. The aroma is sweet, raisins, figs. The taste is plum and raisin and simply excellent. Clings to the palate with a pleasant flavor. The high alcohol level is masked completely by the excellent quality of this beer. This might be one of the best beers I have ever tried.
