UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 Poured slightly cloudy dark amber color with a thin, slightly tan head. Aroma of pit fruit, brown sugar, yeast, and a slight spice/pepper smell also. Began with a sweetness backed by a raisiny taste. Finished with a slight bitterness and a minor amount of heat from alcohol.

33 cl bottle, íbbeí Aug 2010. Chocolate brown with a dark mahogany shine and a pretty stable beige froth. Aromas of chocolate, nuts, cherries, a hint of bananas... Earthy and malty taste with chocolate and a background of dark fruit. A long bitter aftertaste and alcoholic mouthfeel.

One of the best beers Iíve tasted, fruity with a smooth light bitter finish, light in the mouth and refreshingly crisp for a darker beer. Awesome a top 5 for sure.

Sick of the sight of this damn stuff. Every day I have to tell people that itís rochefort, not fucking rocquefort... itís a beer not a fucking cheese.....
All the same itís a damn fine drop. To alcoholic on occasion. Iíll save the fruits and nuts renditions....

UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 Pours deep nutty brown with big beige head. Very creamy as well. Aroma is powerful, alcoholic and very much plum, woody and cherry-like. Taste is great as well. Warming and powerful, sweet and yeasty.

Outstanding! Deep rich color, slightly thick mouthfeel with a little carbonation. Taste is smooth and alcohol does not stand out much at all. Definitely my new favorite.
