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.

No snark or silliness on this one. Just a great beer. Even better mouthfeel than I remember.

Poured in original glass gives a nice dark brown color with thin head. Smells very fermented and kind of citric. The taste is Belgian but smooth and creamy at the same time, with notes of caramel. Really a good Belgian!

Deep murky dark brown with huge light brown creamy and long head. Strong malty aroma has Belgian yeast, bit alcohol, ripe dark fruits, raisins, plums, sweet with syrup, nuanced aroma with lots going on. Medium body, spicy palate with bit sting but not in a bad way, alcohol warmth, malty with elements from aroma, long tasty finish is also very malty with balancing dark fruits. Tasty and nuanced one with classic feel to it.

Had many times in the U.S. and Belgium. Finishing off the supply we picked up in Rochefort on Trappist/Ardennes trip. This is a beautiful and perfect beer. One of only a few Belgian beers that remind me of U.S. imperial stout, but in a way that is lighter, more elegant, more refined. For sure, one of the best beers I’ve ever had.

Cerveja com aroma muito agradável e bem frutado. Coloração marrom, com excelentes carbonatação e formação de espuma. Ótima retenção de espuma. Sabor complexo, frutado, levemente torrado e com lembranças do caramelo. Retrogosto adocicado e com lembranças da torrefação. Cerveja complexa e bem encorpada sendo uma excelente representante das trapistas. Altamente recomendável!

Pretty good. I found it a little treacly, but not overpoweringly so. Smooth and pleasant drinking though.
