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.

Pours dark murky orange/brown with a medium off-white head. Aroma of fruits-sherry-plum-raisin. Quite sweet and malty, extremely smooth. Excellent finish with nearly no evidence of the high alcohol content. A brilliant beer!

Believe the hype. Effervescent pour with tan head that disappears within seconds. Dark cherry impression in the ruby red colour, nose, and taste. Heavenly scent - huge cherry, currant, raisin, fig profile. Taste is similar, but not as huge as the aroma; loads of dark fruit and some bread. Heavy carbonation adds a refreshing character without too much muting. Finish has a light hop note which I’m not used to in a quad, but it absolutely fits. An 11.3% with no booze taste, but has some heat going down. World class.

warming sensation, caramel tones, champagne bubbles, alcoholic goodness. Perfect drink for the festive season, Christmas tastes of raisin and plum.

Bottle, Pours muddy brown with tan head. Aroma of strong belgian yeast, almond, dried fruits, raisins, plums, light apriciot rather complex. Taste is heavy, not really that sweet or that bitte, but quite balanced. quite intense and smooth.

DavidAust (178) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2016
12 degrees Celsius in a tulip glass from a bottle. Nose is sticky sweet toffee and candied dark fruits. Pours beautifully dark mahogany brown to almost black with a thick, frothy three fingers of tan head. Head has dissipated quickly to simply leave a ring - no lacing. Taste is sweet, followed by sweet with a hint of alcohol at the end (but only a hint). Moderately thick and low effervescence. Gently warming on the way down. Medium length palate. Definitely a digestif which could easily replace a Cognac. I wish I had some chocolate mud cake to go with it. Lovely. Wouldn’t take to a BBQ though.

Dark brown. Brown sugar aromas, dried fruits, raisins, caramel, spice. Taste is heavily sweet, dried fruits like figs, apricot and raisins, brown sugar, yeast, spices. Long, sweet finish.

Luneylane (17) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JUL 9, 2016
A bottle from Jason’s near NCC Uni., drunk at home. Opaque, chocolatey colour, head dissipates quickly. Malty aroma with hints of caramel. Fizzy, carbonated mouth feel, not unpleasant. Taste is sweet and heavy, with a kick of alcohol at the end. An excellent Trappist.

Barbacoa in Boise. Happy Hour 2 for $10. Wow. Best before bottle 13.10.2020. Classic and what all quads strive to be. Deep flavor. Smooth lingering head. Happiness all around.
