COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

dark dark with an off white head. big, lots of lace. So subtle yet so strong. Absolutely packed to the limit with flavor. Incredible. Fruity candy, pepper, chocolate, toffee, nutmeg, I could just list flavors ad infinitum. Incredible beer. Thank you Kaya

Allseeingeye (223) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2002
Deep chestnut brown. Humungous head of medium and compact bubbles. Tacky lace. Vinegar, fruit(figs, prunes), bacitracin, sweet and sour sauce, blue cheese, tobacco, leather, and alcohol aromas, to name a few. Figs, plums, sour berries, bitter bakerís chocolate, Stilton cheese, and an amalgam of spices and flavors I canít put a finger on. Mildly astringent and dry. A mild bitterness creeps down the back of the tongue, similar to the feel of an espresso. Really dry fruitiness as it warms.

Raisin aroma, dark brown color, small head, strong alcohol aftertaste. Very good but not great. Paid $6.99 at Samís in chicago.

Trying to rate this as honestly as possible. It comes across as a little harsh at first, but once you get used to the alcohol it becomes more pleasant. Quite woody, raisin, and some other things that Iím having trouble identifying. I get a lot of coconut in the nose. Iím not sure if a lot of the things I taste and smell in this are real or if theyíre just olfactory hallucinations brought on by the high alcohol content.

Heavily sedimented throughout, real nice, very erratic lace. Alcohol prevails in the nose, but of course it should, itís 11+ percent! I think Iím going to need a whole 750 just to get all the words out. The spices and dried fruits last quite a while. Incredible incorporation of a whallop of alcohol. the complexity and depth round the whole package out. a wonderful exBEERience! Itís tough to keep in mind that there is actually that much alcohol. kind of scares me about those monks =)

Zach Diesel (906) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 3, 2002
choclate brown with even head and lots of sediment, strong solid and straightforward like a qb sneak on 4th and 1, subtle spiciness and lots of raisins, absolutely incredible job at masking the alcohol

Finally i get my hands on this beer, and it surely does not disappoint. Amazingly complex and delicious. Alcohol wasnt apparent in my opinion. If only i didnt have to travel 300 miles to get it...
