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.

Bottle. Well, this one lived up to itís reputation. Pours dark walnut color, cloudy and opaque with a small off-white head. Rich malty aroma, lots of spice - nutmeg and cloves prominant - hints of maple and molasses with oaky notes as well. Flavor is also sweet and spicy, very complex with peppery notes and noticible alcohol. Smooth, full mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. A pleasure!

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2005 Ok. So I live in a beer desert. UNTILL, tonight. I finally made it up to this other place, Paradise Alley. Phenominal selection! w00t. Pricey, but w00t! I paid $11 for this one. Anyhow, coca foamy head that leveled nicely. Some floaty business all up in this glass.(cellar temp) Smell is alchohol, some floral, dark fruits, plum, malt. Very very pleasent. Taste carries a complex, welll balanced arrangement of dark fruits(plum), licorice, some spices and peppermint with a malty fetch. The breath-out has such a vibed breath of alchohol. damn! Palate feels earth and cool. after minute aftertaste is a little sour but not bad at all. I am glad I stayed in on such a cold night for this. Even if it is Friday! Listening to New Orderís "Ceremony".

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2005 Wow. Had this at the beer fest at Fort York in the summer of 2003, so Iím kind of relying on hazy memory here. I remember that the Rochefort was unlike most Quads Iíd had before. Dark, rich, and delicious. It tasted like winter (odd, seeing as how it was hot and sunny in the middle of August), but it was really chewy and complex. Fantastic coffee-ish nose, with malt and burnt sugar. The flavour just bursts. It has dark chocolate, coffee, treacle and spice notes all over the place. Quite frankly, it lives up to the hype.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Nice and dark, thin off-white head. Smells floral, brandy perhaps, dried fruits, malt. Definite alcohol presence but not overpowering like some high alcohol content beer. Kind of spicy really. Mellow but complex. Great beer for a nice winter night.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2005
Deep mahogany with a rocky slightly off white head and a ton of lacing. Bold aroma of dark fruits, a little alcohol, pepper, and malt. Aggressive but still well balanced flavors of rich fruit (figs, grapes), peppery spice, yeast and roasted malt. Alcohol really grabs hold of the back of the toungue and doesnít let go through the very pleasing finish. This is one of the highly respected and highly rated Trappists that lives up to all of it.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Pours dark red, almost black with a fizzy, soda-like, white head. Thick grape uice aroma. Dark grape juice like flavor with a big alcohol bite.

Thanks Joey Capps! Pretty dark mahogony body & off-white head. Nose is dark fruits and caramel. Some tanginess. Much lighter than I expected - caramel, yeasty lemon, oak, cherry. Vaguely dusty. Quite fruity and surprisingly dry

darkstar (69) - Eureka, Missouri, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Very dark color with light foamy head. Fruity with notes of plum, raisins, nuts, and licorice. Good flavor masks the high alcohol content. Iím not a big trappist fan but this one is pretty good.
