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: JUN 1, 2004 HaHa, This looks like a Winner!
A deep dark murky brown body with an amazingly thick and downy kaki head. The aroma is full and slightly smoky. Hearty notes of Coco, almonds, and vanilla; I hit upon vibrant dark and fruity notes: plums, dates, apricots, raisins.. Mouthwatering!
Ohhhhhh…. Yeah… Talk about a rich and robust flavor.. Yep, It’s right here!
Raisins, and Dates.. Caramelized brow sugar, butterscotch, candied apples. A plethora of chocolate malts, some Coke a Cola notes, a toasty biscuit, yeasty and full! This is like a insanely nutty Porto, or a 30 year cognac, insanely complex…. Underlying notes of horse stables and cut hay. Chewing tobacco and a black peppery spiciness… WOW, it’s delicious!
I couldn’t imagine a more creamy mocha palate! This beer drapes the glass with the finest wispy lacing… must have coined the term! This my friends is TRUE Artisan Construction!

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2004 SOOOO RICH!!! This beer is the sort of thing you break open at your daughter’s wedding. RIDICULOUS!!!! Opened the bottle and let it sit for a few minutes. Poured. Lovely Garnet head and brown sugar chocolate rose colored body. Lots of little floaties. MMM. Smells immediately like fermented raisins and vanilla. Undertones of chocolate, coffee liquer and hazelnuts. Tastes very round. First element is chocolate. Next raisins. And finally a lovely bittering hop taste that lingers post sip. Mouthfeel is excellent for a quadrupel. This brew has a great balance between the alcohol, the carbonation and the malt. Find it. Buy 57. Cellar half and invite your friends over for the ride of their mouth’s lives. G-rat

Wow, a great night starting with this beautiful brew. Nice and cloudy brown pour with a fluffy head. The head is just sitting there, taunting me to explore what lies beneath. Odors of chocolate, yeast, fruit, toffee, and malt come through. Flavors abound with yeast, black pepper, plum/pears, and malt flavours. Just keeps you waiting for the next sip to open up another layer of complexity. Mouthfeel is medium in body with a nice slightly warming sweet finish. Superb!

Goblincat (381) - Westland, Michigan, USA - MAY 27, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2004 Pours a nice rich reddish brown with a thick, long lasting, puffy head. Lots of lacing here. Nice aroma of spice, fruit (mainly banana and plum), and pepper. So much wonderful flavor and a deep warming sensation. I’m tasting a complex mix of plum, pepper, spice, and some earthiness. Good mouthfeel and overall a truly great experience.

MiP (13525) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Bottle, 11.3%. Very dark brown colour seems hazy. Small, creamy light brown head. Fruity, malty and vinous aroma. Very complex, with fruity, peppery flavours and warming alcohol. Quite sweet, very alcoholic, very flavourful, OK balanced.

Deep, dark brown in colour with minimal head. Notes of caramel, raisins, and nuts. Flavors are more powerful with elements of port wine, prunes, chocolate, and dark berry fruit. Perhaps there’s just a touch of alcohol flavor in there too. This is some amazing stuff.

mwesth (279) - Skovlunde, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2004
Dark brown with light beige head, good lacework. Fruit, malt, spices and yeast in the aroma. The taste is all this + coffee, chocolate, raisins, alcohol etc. Very complex. Thick mouthfeel and a alcoholic aftertaste. Remarkably well balanced for such a strong beer. Perhaps the best I’ve had so far..

Definitely a fine beer. Pours a nearly pitch burgandy color, volumnous head, low carbonation. Nose is of dark fruit, wood, and alchohol. Flavor is amazingly smooth for a beer of this size, and is very tasty as well. Flavor is strong dark fruit, an alcohol bite, and a clean, grassy spell. Ends sweet and slightly grape-like, not unlike the aftertaste of a dark, dry wine.
