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.

Cold 330ml bottle: Pours a dark opaque brown color with a thin layer of frothy tan bubbles and some lacing. Aroma and taste are of roasted malts, dark fruit, molasses and floral hops. Creamy texture, prickly carbonation and full bodied. Ending is dry and bittersweet with some alcohol bite and sour notes.

Best damn beer Iíve ever had!!!

33cl bottle - pours beautifully dark, hazy/yeasty reddish brown, with a gradient like quality from the top down that is actually sort of stunning to look at, topped by a thick tan head that dissipated about halfway through the glass. Aroma of dark fruits and malts with a significant vinous quality to it. This is followed through in the taste, with the edition of an earthy spiciness about midway. The mouthfeel is beautiful, very heavy and silky. Superbly complex, so smooth and rich, and you canít taste the alcohol at all, which, at 11.3% should be considered a feat of magic. Maybe it is. Who knows what these monks get up to. Very potent, radiant even. Deserving of itís place as one of the best beers in the world. Amen.

One of the best beers that I have ever had. Malt aroma of cookie and light molasses/caramel. Head was off white full lasting. The body was cloudy brown and had tiny to small particles in it very nice. The best I have ever had so far.

Marko (4948) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 6, 2006
Bottled at the Hopdevil in Zagreb
Poured an opaque dark brown colour with a teeny tiny head that vanished quickly. A lovely, strong banana and bubblegum aroma emanated from the bottle. Upon further inspection, a vinous background to the nose showed up, along with some yeasty hints. The taste is not as flashy and assertive as I hoped it would be but still lovely and complex. Dark malts, raisins, brown sugar, a hint of plums, a weak touch of dark chocolate mixed with chicory and some yeastiness. A bitter (and a bit roasty) aftertaste. Damn smooth. Reminds me of several beers at once but is way better than all of them. Canít say itís better than the 8, but itís not worse.
