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.

Solid dark brown. Small, spongey, tan head settles quickly. Nose is licorice, dark fruit, candi sugar, alcohol. Same flavors with some rich malt and notes of bittersweet chocolate being added. Full, balanced body. Definitely an after-dinner brew. Excellent brew, but not top 5 in my book. The 8 is just as good, maybe better.

Bottle. Deep murky brown stew with small layer of beige bubbles. Dark fruit, sugar, coriander aroma, alcoholic strength present in aroma. Sweet, complex, and strong, with flavors as per aroma, plus licorice. Fizzy carbonated, potent alcohol. Medium bodied. Decent laccing. A bit overpowering, and I donít find many of hte notes in it others are tasting unfortunately, and, well just to contradict a previous reviewer, I believe I prefer a Trois Pistoles from Unibroue to this - itís a little smoother and less alcoholic tasting, if memory serves (which it may not).

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 12, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2008 Pours a murkey, light brown color w/ a full, semi creamy froth that recedes slowly revealing a full silky canopy. Aroma is musty sweet w/ dusty granite, cocoa, and tequila. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers creates a fantastic texture. For how strong this brew is and how the light in body, a fersh, brisk flavor profile is achieved. This is perfection. Flavors are all over the board w/ a defined mild sweetness. Stone fruit, Belgian rock candy, wood, bakers cocoa, earth, tequila, and herbs. The finish is balanced by a perfect integration of peachpit bittering. R10 leaves nothing to be desired. This brew is food friendly. Try it with day old hot buffalo wings right out of the fridge. Highly recommended to all.

Bottle @ Akkurat, Stockholm
BB 180111. Hadnít drunk this for many a years. Maybe 8 or so. Remembered it as too "hard" and too much licorice, but this time I have adapted. This bottle was very rich in prickly carbon dioxide. And very rich in taste. Very complex. Full of roasted malts to varrious degrees, licorice (but not too much), banana, chocolate, prunes, dades, raisins, well the whole winter fruit basket, really. Only downfall was the slight plastic off taste in the finish when warmed up to room temperature. Wonderfull beer!

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2009 Pours a deep hazy brown with a thick, frothy off-white head. Heavy smells of fruit, banana, and brown sugar, and molasses. Light scent of hops. Moderately yeasty. Creamy and softly carbonated mouth feel. A bit oily at first. Deliciously sweet flavors of fruit, molasses, malts with a nice balance of hops. Warming and earthy, hides itís high alcohol quite well. Coats the mouth in a nice flavor that lasts. Definitely lives up to itís reputation.

kramer (5501) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2006
11.2 oz bottle. Dark brown with chestnut highlights, one finger thick creamy light brown head with amazing retention. Deep fruity aroma, lots of dark candied fruits. Just loaded with toffee and caramel maltiness. Also alcohol, yeast, raisins, and candi sugar. Very vinous in itís aroma. Intensly fruity flavor with a complex interplay between yeast and alcohol. Very rich with some molassas and raisin character. Alcohol on the finish is a bit much for me, it doesnít come across as warming, more of a flavor, almost peppery. The longer this sits the creamier the mouthfeel becomes, yielding a full bodied rounded palate. This stuff is good, what more can you say?

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2006
This beer offers the drinker a plethora of scents. The fragrances of yeast, honey, dates, malt, rye, and berries can all be detected. It is a cloudy mahogany colored solution that settles under a thick almond colored head. This smooth beer is both heavy and rich as it flows through the mouth and tingles the tongue. The taste begins as sweet yeast that has honey and malt infusions. It leaves a rich wheat taste lingering in the throat and on the palate.
