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.

This is the drink that made me fall in love with beer. Creamy, dark fruits, chocolate and cinnamon. Always a hint of wood and caramel that runs through every sip. A meld that only a master brewer can accomplish. The most beautiful complexion, dark and inviting. So complex yet so accessible. It will make you grin with pleasure as you try to analyse what the hell you’re drinking. Never bettered.

pityu (500) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle - Slightly hazy light brwn colour, massive creamy beige head, good retention and fine lacing. Amazingly complex aromas of plum, chocolate, honey, raisins, red grapes, some cloves, dates, candy, toasted nuts, toffee with a touch of cinnamon some wood, herbs. Taste bings that complexity a higher level. Very well balanced, sophisticated and complex beer. Truly amazing and exciting.

portwood (96) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2016 WOW! The 8 was excellent but the 10 is a wow! beer. This one rivals a good single malt Scotch! Smell: molasses, moldy raisins, chocolate, caramel, hint of licorice. Taste: well integrated alcohol, prickly carbonation, dried figs, slight acidity. Finish: sweet and spicy, coffee, light hoppy bitterness. (tasted 04/15/16, BB 12/24/19)

Bottle. What a beer, and it’s just awesome to find it in every supermarket (like every Quadruppel) at a really fair price. Good big cream head, strong carbonation. Very sweet and fruity. Flavors : raisin, chocolate, caramel. It’s not really hopy (it’s so malty that it should be overly hoped to be tasted). Strong alcohol flavour too...

330 ml bottle. Pours dark copper with a light brown head. The aroma is lightly yeasty. Full body with average carbonation. The taste is pretty sweet with some acidity from overripe stone fruits. Caramel, honey, and brown sugar and an warming alcoholic ending. A little to much sweetness for my taste.

AdolfoCC (130) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - JUN 17, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color marrón intenso con algunos destellos cafés a contraluz, con una corona de espuma color beige de buena retención de burbujas muy compactas. AROMA: es muy compleja, destacan las notas a caramelo, toffee, costra de pan, frutos oscuros maduros como ciruelas, pasas, dátiles, higos, notas a plátano, ligeramente el especiado de la levadura belga, licorosa. SABOR: al igual que el aroma es muy complejo; al tocar el líquido la boca se siente dulce, al trago nuevamente destacan las notas a caramelo, azúcar no procesado, toffee, frutos oscuros maduros como ciruelas, higos, dátiles, pasas, notas a plátano, pan, nueces, algo especiado característico de la levadura, muy ligeras notas a chicle y algunas notas herbales, sabor a vino jerez sin llegar a sentirse licorosa en boca, todo seguido de un amargor medio bajo. El retrogusto queda un amargor medio bajo no astringente con larga permanencia de los sabores. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio con mediana baja carbonatación. El alcohol bien escondido, sólo se siente una sensación calurosa ligera en garganta al correr el líquido. RESUMEN: excelente cerveza, de clase mundial.

WaddlingPlatypus (64) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2016
330ml bottle. Dark amber with an off-white bubbly head. Slightly hoppy aroma, mildly sawdust-like. Bitter flavour, with hops and notes of brandy. Not the greatest Trappist I have ever encountered.

Samtzu (87) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 12, 2016
330ml bottle. Huge aroma which is slightly sweet and has notes of something spicy. The flavour is much lighter body then I expected but the flavour profile is monstrous. While there are many flavours I am finding it very difficult to name any.

Satyroneto (291) - BRAZIL - JUN 10, 2016
Cor marrom escuro com tonalidade caramelo e sedimentos finos em suspensão; espuma bege de alta formação e persistência de uma fina camada com lacing razoável (no copo adequado a persistência e lacing diminuem). Aroma de frutas secas, frutas cristalizadas, nozes e pimenta; em segundo plano notas vinificadas e álcool. Sabor inicialmente de frutas secas e cristalizadas e nozes, acompanhado de uma picância intensa e deliciosa; evolui para um meio discreto de vinho do Porto com final alcoólico amadeirado e de amargor terroso; retrogosto alcoólico, amadeirado, terroso e picante. Corpo sedoso, carbonatação média. Incrível drinkability.
