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.

Incredie McDreadie appearence. Deep brown colour with a creamy off-white head. Cherry, nutmeg, cinnmaon aroma. Much more intense than the 6 & 8, but it falls right in line flavour wise. Sedimenty.

A real fine beer. Good, sweet and strong taste, that last a long time. And a aroma that goes with it. But it has a bit too much alcohol in both taste and aroma.

Great. I could drink this everyday. They should put it in a 40oz for us Americans. Amazingly masked alcohol. So damn smooth and wonderfully aromatic. If Westy is better than this, I’m in for a real treat. This beer rules.

I didn’t think I’d ever get my hands on this one, nor did I think it would be this delicious. This is smoothest, tastiest 11.3% one can ever drink.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2002
Pours a very cloudy, dark brown color with a big, tan head. Wonderful aroma of sugary malts and alcohol that make my mouth water. The flavor consists vanilla and malts with a very long sweet finish. No alcohol present in the flavor, but there is a good warming effect from the gut. Leaves a minimal amount of lacing on the glass. Medium bodied, sweet, and delicious.

Nate (3708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2002
Re-rate. Nose of raisins and plums, earthiness and alcohol. Dark sugar and molasses. Twizzlers and vanilla. Deep dark brown-black beer with thin lacing off-white head. Medium-high effervescent car with, surprisingly, light-medium body. A clean palate. Ahh, the taste: maltiness, sweet but not syrupy on the tongue. Mild nutty sweet finish with raisiny after. Cherry wood and vapory. Raisins and plums. Sugary and peppery. Bit of chalkiness from the dregs. Rich and complex, big taste and wonderful aroma. Hide the 11% alcohol well. A great winter evening beer.

zborgerd (187) - Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2002
Very strong ale. Very present taste of alcohol- much more than Chimay. True to a Trappist taste. Lots of head and carbonation like a glass of cola. Yeast, spice, banana, pepper, chocolate, plum, and rum taste. Most complex beer that I have ever had. It’s perfect, and will knock you on your ass with its strength and complexity. It’s a bit expensive though, especially because my local shops only have small bottles.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2006 another very fine ale taste of strong alcohol if not set down to warm to room temp. also sits very well on the palate. hint of malt and plum is noticed in it too.

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
