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.

Pours a cloudy brown with small tan head. Nice arom of plums and apple. Malty, syrupy, beer that hides the 11% ABV very well. Bitter, dry, roasty, smoky finish. Very complex. The upper echelon of beers.

Great aroma. Berries, citrus, lemon, vanilla, chocolate, just wonderful. Appearance: Tannish brown with large particalia floating throughout. Some brown spots noticed within the off white tan head. The aroma is just enticing me to taste. But, Iím also trying to let it warm to the recommended 54-58 degrees. This is good, so complex. Nice brown sugar flavor with many of the aromas noted above as well. The 11.3% ABV is well hidden. The only negative to this beer is the price which I paid (close to $9). I guess you pay for what you get, which in this case is a top of the line beer!

33cL bottle from Belgium trip in 2000. Beautiful tan head and lacing. Malty aroma with fruit and leather. Alcohol aroma (but not as much as the 8). Vanilla & wood flavors with delicious malt flavor plus the alcohol. Perfect body to fit the full flavor. Excellent beer especially with the age. Yum.

BAM! Pours with very dark brown color with creamy tannish head. Laces. Nose is chocolate covered cherries, fruity, yet chocolatey. Flavor is of deep malty and chocolate tones with fig/plumlike character. Alcohol presence is very balanced. Velvety smooth, yet big and bold. A definite lip smacker!!

POW! What a beautiful beer! Itís a dark-brown black with a massive, lasting, off-white head. The carbonation is creamy and the palate is velvety. The aroma is amazing! Itís redolent with stone fruits, cherries and chocolate, brown sugar/molasses, and orange peel. Itís like dessert! The palate is medium-weight with a velvety feel, and a heavy alcoholic finish. The flavor is well-balanced, starting sweetly and ending in a long bitter finish. This is totally a tail-wagger of a beer!

Thereís no denying it, this is a great beer. Nice full body in palate, aroma and flavor. Upon pouring you can smell the plum and rasin. Well balanced and looks great. It finishes a bit astringent for my tastes, but that does nothing to take away from the quality of this beer.

Bottle. Dark brown, with tan head. Excellent complex aroma of fruit, smoked wood, rum. Warming and smooth. A great beer.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 If you havenít had this one yet, be prepared for a shock; This is a very flavorful beer! Makes most other belgian quads seem a little one dimensional by comparison. Earth, plum, wood and caramel falvors get along famously. Rated high and rightly so...
