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.

Uma das melhores cervejas Trappistes que tomei. Não é tão doce qto as outras. Muito gostosa, leve sabor alcoolico, levemente doce, espuma perfeita e coloração escura.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2014 Al jarenlang een favoriete trappist van mij. Een heerlijk bier met een complexe smaak: zoet, licht bitter, caramel, mout, alcohol, gist, brood, in de verte wat chocola. De geur kon ik niet thuisbrengen, maar dat ligt aan mijzelf. Alles klopt aan dit bier. Het enige wat ontbreekt is de zachtheid die een Westvleteren trappist wel heeft.

Aroma is nuts, raisins, bread, alcohol. Taste is slightly sweet, LOTS of raisins. The alcohol gives a warming feeling. Complex and excellent beer.

This beer is delicious. The palate is interesting with fruit and layers if malt. Had from a bottle in a Rochefort glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rico em aroma e sabor, considero a melhor cerveja trapista que ja tomei, oculta bastante o sabor do alcool, mais saborosa na temperatura e na taça ideal!

Pours a very dark brown color with a decent head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is caramel, nutty, toffee, bread, dark fruits of plum and fig, a warming booze note. Taste is sweet, raisin, fig, sorghum molasses, chocolate orange. Mouthfeel is not as thick as the 8, somewhat dry and very refreshing. Overall very good, the booze becomes slightly stronger as it warms but is still very hidden for 11.3%.

330 ml bottle. Pours a translucent reddish brown color with a small beige head. Aroma has notes of dark dried fruits and cola. Flavor is sublimely sweet and complex. Lot’s of dried fruits and sweet sherry notes. There is a wonderful, rich, buttery maltiness that is exquisite to sip and savor. It’s somehow so very ethereal and indulgent. The warming alcohol conjures up memories of an old port, single malt scotch or rare bourbon. It’s that good. The finish is sweet and fruity, with hints of juicy plums and Calvados. A beautiful beer.

Bottles from Rehills, Newcastle, Carrefour, Calais, Oddbins Newcastle (now closed). A very dark brown beer with a rich red fruit and floral hoppy flavour, currants, red fruit, sherry and sarsaparilla followed by a sugary sweet, candy sugar and powerfully alcoholic finish. Excellent!

Fruity and cocoa liquier on nose. Cake, dried fruits, plum, gooseberry and some roasted nuts. Candy sweet also. Sticky, malty, yeasty.
