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 from Plump Jack. Pours black with no light passing through. Persistant brown head even to the last sip. Aroma of toasted almonds. Suspended particles. Near perfect beer.

Deep murky brown, huge tan rocky head. Nose was very rich with notes of plum, raisin toast, caramelized fig, and toffee, with lesser tones of cherry and angel food cake. Flavor up front is all about dark fruits and soft booze. It rounds out nicely with a soft push of woodsy bitterness. Full bodied, moderate carbonation, lightly bittersweet, dark fruity finish. This is a fantastic late night sipper that is one of the best in it’s class.

This beer was absolutely amazing. I had the 8 and it was delicious. After tasting this beer I felt like touching myself; It was that good. It was too cold when poured so I had to wait a few minutes to truly enjoy the essence of this beer. Once the wait was over the flavors and true colors of this beer came out. It is a must have!

onystrom (1321) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - APR 13, 2006
Dark amber/brown color with great head. Powerfull flavor sweet and with a strong alcoholic aftertaste. It’s very strong and I actually liked it better at a low temperature.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - APR 11, 2006
The 11 oz. bottle poured a cloudy (it was bottle conditioned), dark reddish brown beverage with small fizzy white head that did not last long (probably due to the high alcohol warmth) and left very little lacing on the glass. The aroma was quite sweet and fruity dominated by banana with notes of raspberry, plum and assorted dried fruits. The body was quite full with lively carbonation and a smooth somewhat oily texture. The flavor started off quite sweet with berries coming out on the side and back of the tongue. The finish was long with a decided alcohol warmth and the sweetness persisted.

Pours dark brown, taste-wise: instant smiles. Big flavours, similar to the 8 but richer, and warmer going down (courtesy of its well hidden alcohol content). deservedly well renowned beer, didn’t knock me completely off my feet like i thought it might. still thoroughly reccommended!

bgburdman9 (859) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2006
Poured a dark cloudy brown with a very small head that rimmed the glass. At first it was too cold and the flavor was masked but as it warmed I realized this was one of the best beers in the world. The alcohol was very strong but it was a good strong. This was very malty and did not have much hop flavor at all. There was flavor of dark fruits and a wine like taste. I could drink this everyday if it wasnt so expensive.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 Re-rate; 11/25/2007 - Heavy; about sums it up. Alcohol is too pronounced, too much, too much.
