Drank at La Morte Subite.... Served in a wide mouth classic trappiste style glass. Light tan head with lacing on the sides. The aroma is malt with vinous notes and fruity esters and background of caramel and dare I say Cola? Served celler temps good carbonation with good bite. Taste is candy like with some brown sugar coming through (sans mollases) Makes my cheeks pink like a swedish boy at Christmas drinking this one.... Toffee and dark fruit finish that is surprisingly dry at the end. Yeast profile really makes this beer different than other trappiste biers I have had. Also in the middle the beer exhibits a strange character that I can only describe is celery like with a cola note as mentioned before. I like it and it definately better at room temp 65-70

Darkest of all Trappistes Rochefort. Strong carbonation, mouthfeel divine. Very complex and deep taste and aroma, but not heavy. Superb balance. Syrup bread - which is the trade mark reserved just to the world class in this type of beers. Hallelujah! Would like to marry my son in the family of the brewer.

More or less the gold standard for quality in beer, it’s an amazing brew indeed, with so much going on (not least of which is the healthy 11.3% kick). Could be slightly more rounded in terms of mouthfeel but any criticism here is like mortals tossing pebbles at gods.

peponi (1228) - Mainz, GERMANY - APR 27, 2016
Aroma: plum, raisin, high alcohols. Appearance: hazy deep brown color and beige head. Taste: really warming alcohol, peachy, roasted dark malts, red fruits, plum, champagne notes (strange), black currant, quite dry. Palate: full body and medium carbonation, fruit finish. Overall: Really interesting stuff, for me alcohol is to high and even slightly rough.

This beer is what they say it is. Rich and complex. The strength though lies in its subtlety. The tastes and smells aren’t "in your face", its all smooth and well, subtle. This makes this beer to me one of the very best.

Studoffsky (39) - POLAND - APR 24, 2016
Cóż powiedzieć, belgijski klasyk, w mojej opinii lepszy niż Westvletteren XII i St.Sixtus Abt. Aromat karmelowy, dobrego winnego alkoholu (madera?), potężne drożdże. W smaku "trapistowskie" gruszki i jabłka, śliwka, marcepan, trochę banana i wanilii. Wszystko to można spotkać w wielu innych piwach ale tu jest idealnie zharmonizowane. Finisz długi, wytrwany, lekko przesuszający - alkohol robi swoje choć przy 11,3% ABV piwo to jest wyjątkowo pijalne. Majstersztyk.

rustbucket0873 (365) - Krikville, New York, USA - APR 22, 2016
Pours rasin, dark amber with tan head. The aroma is really fruity. Plums, figs, bubblegum, raisins. The flavor is sweet with plum, fig, sugar, caramel. Body is medium, overall very sweet well balanced witht the alcohol.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 Po przelaniu do kielicha prezentuje się przepięknie, ciemnobrązowa ciecz z bujną, beżową pianą, wygląd naprawdę klasowy. Aromat średnio intensywny, czuć nieco fenoli, ciemne owoce, nuty winne, nieco też szlachetnych trunków. Smak przebogaty, czuć nieco rozgrzewającego alkoholu, rodzynki, wino, nalewkę z ciemnych owoców, fenole, można analizować każdy łyk. Wytrawne, bardzo degustacyjne ze względu na bogactwo smaku i aromatu. Takie deserowe piwo. Choć mi bardziej z Rochefortów podeszła 8. Ale i tak to klasa światowa

IOzh (77) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - APR 21, 2016
300ml bottle. Pours dark brown with small beige head. Aroma of port wine, dried fruits, plums, caramel, alcohol. Medium body with soft carbonation. Taste is bittersweet, very complex and warming. Exceptionally great beer.
