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.

BAM! Pours with very dark brown color with creamy tannish head. Laces. Nose is chocolate covered cherries, fruity, yet chocolatey. Flavor is of deep malty and chocolate tones with fig/plumlike character. Alcohol presence is very balanced. Velvety smooth, yet big and bold. A definite lip smacker!!

POW! What a beautiful beer! Itís a dark-brown black with a massive, lasting, off-white head. The carbonation is creamy and the palate is velvety. The aroma is amazing! Itís redolent with stone fruits, cherries and chocolate, brown sugar/molasses, and orange peel. Itís like dessert! The palate is medium-weight with a velvety feel, and a heavy alcoholic finish. The flavor is well-balanced, starting sweetly and ending in a long bitter finish. This is totally a tail-wagger of a beer!

Thereís no denying it, this is a great beer. Nice full body in palate, aroma and flavor. Upon pouring you can smell the plum and rasin. Well balanced and looks great. It finishes a bit astringent for my tastes, but that does nothing to take away from the quality of this beer.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 If you havenít had this one yet, be prepared for a shock; This is a very flavorful beer! Makes most other belgian quads seem a little one dimensional by comparison. Earth, plum, wood and caramel falvors get along famously. Rated high and rightly so...

Just shared a bottle with one of my friends and we were blown away. It had a deep reddish brown hue. The aroma was very complex but the taste is what really got us. No bitternes left on the palate with smooth rich flavors and a touch of sweetness. I have to get more of this in my cellar.

Wonderful beer. Poured a very dark, cloudy brown with an immense tan head that lasted quite some time, leaving behind some nice lacing. Aroma is rich and fruity, with some caramel notes and a hint of wood. Well balanced malt flavor with some roasted fruitiness and a definite alcohol presence. Very warm and smooth going down. Excellent Trappist brew.

Sweet cocoa, appley fruit aroma. Flavor is much of the same. Light Tan head. Mahogany color. Alcohol is present in the flavor but not the alcohol bite that I detest. Hidden extremely well for 11.3%. Great sipping brew.
