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.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2006 Very enticing aroma of sweet dark fruit, spices, chocolate, charcoal, a touch of alcohol. Dark brown with sedimented yeast and large off-white head that diminishes to a thick ring. Sweet, dark chocolate, mild alcohol, oak, dark fruit - especially plum, with an underlying earthiness. Lively carbonation. Mild alcohol warming. Strong body and very full mouthfeel. Enjoyed with MartinT (Thank you). Bottle.

Creamy, tan head; gorgeous violet color. Aroma: dark, dark, dark, with spices, dark fruits, grapes, berries,strawberries...distinctly port-like,plummy, raisinish. Terriffically strong, incredibly warming, the feel and the heat of a glass of cognac! Absolutely perfect!

temporrari (389) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 2, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 Dark amber pour. Large head develops and just sits on top of the beer. Incredible aroma. Dark fruits, Belgian spices and yeast, bready, sweet malts, maybe even a hint of chocolate. Just a hint though. Some alcohol as it warms, but really hidden. Not bad.

I went to Rozi’s Wine House with my RateBeer Top 50 list and purchased a dozen or so beers. So when my wife and I drink these beers, we say what a great beer. And, this is a great beer. It had a mild aroma, a light but full head, and a wonderful flavor that coats the tongue. It has a nice, not overpowering, sweetness. Who thought rating beer could taste so good?

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 30, 2004
Dark brown and hazy with off-white creamy head. Malty, fruity aroma with lots of alcohol and some herbal notes. Great flavors of sweet malts, raisins, dried fruit, cloves, and herbs. Excellent carbonation with smooth mouthfeel. Peppery bite of alcohol blended well with a fruity aftertaste with light chocolate hints. Overall very good.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - APR 29, 2004
Dark brown, a bit red, ale. Beige head. Very complex flavour with some roasted malt, banana, vanilla (ginger bread?). Hints of chocolate. Some underlying fruit (Black currant?), muscovado sugar?. Smooth palate, almost oily. Overall magnificent abbey ale!

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2004
Pours a dark ruby red with a HUGE biege head. Mild aroma of m\dark malts and dark fruit, and a touch of alcohol. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Spice, plums, dried fruits, and wood on the tongue. Nice lingering aftertaste. A fine beer, but I have to say it's not one of my favorites for the style.

Hey, it's one of the greats. Looks great after the pour. I drank it a while ago, I will have to rate it again when I have a bottle.
