COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2004 After multiple trials of this pinacle species I have decide that it is perfect. I have, therefore increased my rating to perfect. Long live the Rochefort Trappist Monks! The best beer I have had to date. Reminds me of a perfected version of Trois Pistoles. Rich and complex, yet extremely clean tasting.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2006 another very fine ale taste of strong alcohol if not set down to warm to room temp. also sits very well on the palate. hint of malt and plum is noticed in it too.

Huge chocolate malt aroma. Opaque dark brown body with big persistant beige head. Hey, this really does taste like an alcoholic, fruity chocolate malted milk. Aftertaste is of sweet malty wine and short bitterness. This must be the ambrosia of heaven. If I could afford it, I would live on it. I am not worthy. Thanks Duff

Awesone, full flavor nutty(?). If this is a quad style, it doesn’t have that port flavor like some. Excellent.

What can I say that Shadallion already hasn’t! This is truly a beautiful beer in the purest form. I’ve had the Rochefort 8, very nice also, and like he said, thought expensive you should experience this beer(s) at least once in your life, and at the same time pay hommage to the Trappist Monks who produce such a quality product.
