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.

Bottle L30 11 10. Deep cola brown with a fluffy tan head. Bubbles range from tiny to large. Aroma is sweet candy plum, sour cherries, and a touch of alcohol. Quite appetizing. Palate is very smooth. Flavor is a touch sour when cold. Letting it sit and warm up highlights the sugars (and the alcohol twist). I’ve got another bottle I’m going to let age for a while. I’m going to let it warm up before drinking... this one has improved significantly as the temperature approached room.

Jako tamno pivo, okus kave i karamele, samo sa puno alkohola, okus ostaje dugo ustima, preporuke, medju boljim pivama

Maravillosa cerveza belga. Cremosa y con sabor persistente. Espuma duradera y dorada. Fuerte de alcohol. 11.3. Pero de sabor compensado. Muy recomendable. Cerveza para tomar con tiempo y en buena compañía.

danielemolino (74) - torino, ITALY - FEB 4, 2016
Bevuta in bottiglia da 33 cl alla birreria Petrarca a torino. Sempre un ottima scelta. Una buonissima birra trappiste. Corposissima. Finale reticente.

Scurissima, quasi nera, corposa ma morbida al palato, l’alcool non è invadente, anzi forte il caramello, un pelo speziata, un must drink abs

martpez (63) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2016 What a fantastic texture. Taste wise it is very good but underwhelming compared to the Westvleteren 12 but is still much better then your average Trappiest, the flavor is a little sweet and acidic in comparison. Still the texture is fantastic. A very good beer.

WhatDaddy (37) - Volos, GREECE - JAN 25, 2016
0,33lt bottle @ Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe, Volos, Greece Full body, dark cloudy beer. Aromz is sweet and reminds wine, got also some nuts and chocolate in the nose. Taste very rich, complex. Medium carbonation, brown foam that disappears quick. Better z bit more warm to drink (12-15 Degrees Celsius). One of the best, similar to the Westvleteren XII

Dark brown color, , foam disapperes quickly but it has strong smell, very complex aroma, sweet caramel start and great roasted nuts aftertaste, light carbonation, powerfull aroma and rich complex taste no doubt about it, the best word for describing it would be "wow"
