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.

WOW! Upon opening this beer, you smell the fruity overtones of plums and a hint of chocolate and spices. This pours like a dream with a deep rich body and light then you would expect head. Like a wine, you should let this stand. This beer actually get better as it sat. This is a definite worth while beer to try and stock in your house.

Pours dark brown with a slight bubly cream coloured head. Lovely chocolate and toffe aroma mixec with caramel and some vineous alcohols. Flavour is sweet caramel and coffey. Very smooth and lean on the palate. With a beer of this quality it is easier to list its small deviations from perfection than to write down all of the good qualities. I find it slightly fizzy and some of the higher alcohols disturb the overall impression. A marvelous beer it is nonetheless!

Bottled. A sweet aroma, with rasiny, wine-like notes. The beer pours dark brown, with a light tan head that fades quickly, leaving no lacing. The flavor is strong, fruity, with plum and raisin notes, sweet with undertones of alcohol, much like a fine dessert wine. Caramel notes to the malt, almost candy-like, without much hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth, the carbonation complementing the flavors. A truly amazing feat of brewing!

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2005 From bottle at The Bier Garden, Portsmouth, VA. Deep, cloudy brown with a light brown head. Sweet caramel-fruit nose. Flavor. My God man, the flavor! Complex, dark fruits - fig, date, raisin all sprinkled in brown sugar. Gets even more complex as it warms in the glass, the malts and caramel come through. Silky mouthfeel leaves your mouth aching for more, as the flavors hang in your mouth, you don’t want it to end. So I ordered another... Amazin’ brew! Simply amazin’!

And so my adventures begin in Trappist beers...being my first Abt/Quad I figured I’d start near the top...and I was not disappointed. This beer has a dark brown color with a reddish tint and a quickly dissolving off white head. Sweet grape and carmel aroma permeates from the glass. A dictionary of complex flavors including plums, brown sugar, sweet malt, grape, raisins and tobacco. Somehow they all blend into this amazing tasting creation that warms the belly. I’ll certainly enjoy this again.
