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: NOV 23, 2011 A great beer !! Such a smooth beer, great coffee, cacao, spicy aromas. Hides the 11+ % real well. The flavor balances excellently many different tastes, chocolate, plums, coffee, caramel among others.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2006 Very nice looking- almost porter colored with a lasting cappucino froth hued head. Initial notes are of soft alcohol which warms the back of the throat. Just looked at the bottle and realized it is over 11% alcohol. Wow. Underneath it has a smooth, chewy, yeasty quality. Notes of vanilla bean, licorice, dark chocolate, and ripe fruit. The thing I enjoy most about this beer is the soft chewy mouthfeel and deep complex flavors. The amount of alcohol in the beer only serves to make it more memorable! An exceptional beer.

Poured a lovely dark brown, head dissapated quickly. Couldn’t detect the alcohol much at all, very velvety taste. Fruit and a bit of chocolate dominate., what a great beer!

Sampled from bottle. This quad pours murky mahogany with an ample tan head which left a respectable amounts of lacing. The aroma is subtle and vinous with notes of plums, licorice, alcohol, cocoa and indiscernible spices. The feat in this beer’s aroma is that while it is isn’t over-the-top, it is still sophisticated. Flavor is well-balanced with noticable alcohol, caramel, dark fruits, pepper, and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, moderately-carbonated and warming. One of the finest beers in the World.

jahughey (65) - Franklin, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Immense Belgian aromas- estery/phenolic yeast compounds, raisiny, chocolatey maltiness, and vinous alcohol all in one potent package. Surprisingly dry and drinkable for an 11% ale. Monks ale is a spiritual experience, fittingly. Wonderful.

This is a totally solid beer. Smells sweet, and tastes the same. Has a light head that compliments the color. I detect some very interesting tastes in this one. There is definently some taste of alcohol, but the 11.3 % kind of sneaks up on you. Yay beer! *after drinking the beer after it had warmed up....the alcohol was much more detectable.
