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: OCT 9, 2005 Very fine beer. The taste was a little stong for my taste. Plus it got me a bit too tipsy. But it is a high quality beer, so I will still give it a high rating. The aroma is highly complex consisting of berries, peach, banana, white wine, hops, graitfruit, chocolate, mocha and liquorice. Only the experienced beer drinker can understand this stuff. I think this beer is great, however it is too strong in terms of the alcohol. It is not hidden that well. This is amazing, but the Westy 12 is my favorite. I had the two side by side and I give the Westy the slight edge in terms of the taste and the palate. The Rochefort I am currently enjoying must be aged because it is unreal. .

Bottled 330ml. Cloudy dark brown. Small tan head. Slightly hoppy with prunish fruity taste. Best at 65F. But still with too much bitter astringent taste.Similar to Westvleteren 8 but not quite as good becuse of the more prominant astringent taste. Multiple tastings.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2005 An excellent full bodied beer. Starts off with a hint of sweetness and ends with an excellent aftertaste worth savoring. If you can find this one, pick up one or 3 for yourself.

A near perfect beer. Very dark body with small light brown head. Aroma is malty with some sweetness from lots of dark fruits. Flavor is almost sherry or port like, very complex with fruit, yeast and alcohol. Very nice beer.

Divine stuff. Reasonably sweet but not too sweet, well balanced and an acceptable alcoholtaste. Heavy and rich, powerful and most of all: very, very enjoyable.

Appearance: Dark brown with moderate offwhite head that lingered. Aroma: Sweet like honey, touch of cocoa, and dark fruit. Flavor profile: Complex at first, sweet dark fruit mixing with the darker cocoa’s sweetness. Big mouthfeel. Very interesting but I don’t like the mix.

Dark red brown beer with a long lasting, creamy beige head. Very rich flavour with lemon, red berries and flowers. Complex flavour with lots of earthy notes and asome sweetness, but too my alcohol for my taste. Maybe I need to try an older one?
