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.

Wow. Really complex beer. Cloudy brown body with a huge off white head. Aroma was slightly sweet with some yeast and some alcohol. Flavor is so complex its hard to describe. I tasted the raisin, plum, and black currant, plus some caramel sweetness, a bit of tanginess, and a slight alcohol burn. A wonderful, complex, well-made beer.

Just deliscious, itís rochefort cheese features are great and the aroma is a little sweet, it is just a nice beer, better than the 8, and Iím not really into high alcohol percentage beers.

Strong in color and taste. The alcohol is strong but with all the different flavors going on it is not overpowering. I do get just a odd bit of salt.

Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Jul 2010). Raisins, bready malts, some chocolate, caramel and lots of alcohol. This was nice and richly balanced but two things prevented me from enjoying it more. Firstly the high alcohol presence and secondly the high carbonation level which seemed inappropriate in a beer of this strength and depth.

Poured a dark color and aromas were sweet and spicy. Flavor was sorta malty and a bit sweet but very nice. I really enjoyed this brew even though how strong it is.

Bottled. Pours a super deep brown color. A little sediment floating around. Sweet aroma. Caramel and sweet candy, along with some dark fruit. Slightly sweet malty flavor up front. Dark fruits and roasted malts. Maybe even a little chocolate. Slight alcohol burn.

33cl bottle. Pours a cloudy walnut colored haze with a thick slighly off white head. Aroma has notes of caramel, sweet alcohol, and has a burnt nuttiness. Flavor is of alcohol, dark fruits, with a hint of chocolate. Finish is somewhat souring. Fizzy, yet silky medium mouthfeel that coats the tongue. This is quite amazing.

33cl Bottle. Just as good as everybody claims. Fantastic aroma. Nice and "warm" taste with a touch of plum and caramel. Only a slight (warming) taste of alcohol (considering the %). A very complex beer that you can enjoy again and again (and again)
