COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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: JUN 11, 2006 Damn this is a good beer. Only my 2nd Quad so far, but man this one is much much better than the first one i had. Alcohol is completely hidden out of view. This beer is so smooth, the flavors just balance together perfectly and really I canít imagine doing much more to make this beer taste better. The aroma was a little mild, but you can smell the fig, raisin sort of qualities this beer has. The taste is quite bready, not sweet, not bitter, not sour this beer is right in the middle of all the senses. I love it, itís great without being offensive.

good beer. Not the best Belgian Quad, but it is definitely a staple Trappist.

This is the best beer Iíve ever had. A perfect balance between full body, high alcohol content and drinkability. My only problem with it is that mine had quite a bit of sediment. Not sure if this is common, but next one I find Iíll check for sediment before I buy it.

Very cloudy dark brown. Good bite. Tastes of figs, plums, raisins, a hint of rye bread. Smooth malty feel. Some kind of smokey tobacco like dryness. For 11.3 alc is not too apparent. Very complex and interesting.

So far the highest rating Iíve given on this site. That seems right to me at this point. Left my mouth a touch sore, but on the right night, that could be just what Iím looking for.

Pours with a big head that stays around forever, leaving a nice lacing behind on the glass. Aroma is not as strong as I would expect. A very complex beer -- malty, dark fruits, some alcohol taste, bread -- too much to list. Well worth the price tag.

Pours hazy dark brown with a big, lasting head and nice lacing. The aroma is of dark fruits, yeast, and alcohol. This is a full bodied ale with lively carbonation. The flavor is very complex, which Iím not too good at describing, but dark fruits, subtle spices, and malts are all apparent. The finish is pleasantly sweet with some alcohol presence, as one might expect with over 11% abv. This is a wonderful beer as many others have noted. Itís expensive, but well worth trying.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2007 Cloudy,carbonated dark brown with a thick tan head. the aroma is a combination of malt, berries and raisins. the flavor features a caramel malt with changing berry raisin touch ended with a pleasant bitterness and a tiny bit of alcohol flavor but what can you expect of 11.3%. Outstanding! I saved this one for my 100th rating! Rerated 72607

Pours a thick milk chocolate brown with the slightest tint of burnt orange with a two to three finger spongy head that slowly dissipates and leaves a thick lacing. Aroma is chocolate, raisin, fig, and bread pudding. Taste is unbelievably complex Raisin, fig, rum, bread, bread pudding, port Ė spicy - it keeps changing! Apple cider, some sort of dark fruit jam as it finishes with the perfect bitterness. There is an incredible amount of stuff going on here, Iím sure I didnít capture it all. Palate is slightly creamy but very fresh, with a lively carbonation that really brings out the spicy flavors and seems to foam up as you work it around your mouth. As a somewhat of a novice, this is the best beer Iíve ever had.
