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.

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...

A very good trappist ale but not the best, but as all trappist aleís it rates far above the average beer

WHEN I FIRST HAD THIS BEER IT CHANGED ME FOREVER...THE AROMA WAS SO AWESOME, I COULD HARDLY PULL MY NOSE OUT OF THE GLASS TO TASTE IT. IíM GALD I DID THOUGH, BECAUSE THE COMPLEXITY OF ITíS FLAVORS WAS AMAZING.DARK FRUIT AND SWEETNESS...IT MAKES ME WANT TO GO GET ANOTHER ONE RIGHT NOW! EVERYONE SHOULD TRY THIS BEER.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2003 a dark beauty with secret reddness and gorgeous creamy lather.. aroma was a melted bundle of raisins, mildewy cardboard, dust, & dirty socks, with the added pleasure of grape koolaid touched with drizzles of liquid chocolate and sprinkles of cinnamon & nutmeg..a secret party of evil fruit with grapes, plums, raisins, and apples..chocolate hot tubs..dancing licorice..vinous music..and alcoholic strippers..

Truely magical. I felt the warmth spread through me with the first sip. Flavors Iíve never had before that kept returning even days later. Truely the best beer I have ever tasted.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2003 Poured dark brown-amber with big chunks of sediment, which worried me momentarilly, but they settled. Medium fizzy head, dissappated to a thin ring of bubbles around the edges. The flavors in this are nearly overwhelming - It's a good thing that I took an hour to drink it, any quicker and you're gonna miss something. Start of the swallow is a somewhat sharp pear fruityness on the sides of the tongue. then comes various chocolates, plums, cinnamon. Later, I got nutty flavors as it warmed. The finish was dry on the top of the tongue, but the more assertive notes continued to play about underneath my tongue - a new experience.
