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.

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

Donker bier met kleine gistdeeltjes en een bijzondere geur en smaak. Ook een fijne, zachte nasmaak.

12oz bottle into chalice. What more can be said of this monster? Rich, bold, complex and delicious. Full-on plum, currant, and dried fruits; viscous palate. Warming without being boozy. Comes in and out of circulation in town; never sure if, when it disappears, more will ever show up in town. Oh, to have an infinite cellar of it...

From 0,33L bottle bought at Vinmonopolet. Complexity beyond comparison. A great experience

Dark brown with a nice tan head, good retention. Nose is figs, raisins, caramel, toffee, marzipan, yeast esters. Flavour is so well balanced, notes of banana, dark fruits, sweet malts, brown sugar, bubblegum. Slight hint of alcohol, but for the abv it’s really well hidden. One of the best.

Ich werde das Bier nicht ausführlich beschreiben; die große Mehrheit kennt es eh schon. Daher bleibt nur zu sagen: Weltklasse. Eines der besten Biere der Welt, dazu Preis-/Leistungs-Verhältnis sagenhaft. Einfach nur toll.

I have nothing to add, that other raters have not already written. This beer is simply the best.
