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.

Smelled wonderful, but didn't taste as good as it smelled. Alcohol content is masked beautifully. Complex fruity taste with hints of natural oak and wood like flavors. Unique, hard to describe aftertaste, and wonderful think brown color. Definately not worth $10 a bottle, but it is a pleasant sampling experience.

Bottle poured into Trappist glass. Smooth mouthfeel quickly hit by perfect carbonation. Toffee aroma and breaded taste. Aftertaste of raisins. Very smooth beer with absolutely no hint of this being 11.3 ABV. One of the best beers in the world for a reason!!

Jolie couleur brune intense avec une mousse ivoire très généreuse qui retombe assez vite. Une bonne odeur de pruneaux et malts grillés. Un velouté en bouche très agréable avec le goût de pruneaux qui domine. Une chaleur qui se prolonge avec une légère touche d’amertume. Complexité et équilibre pour cette bière où on ne sent même pas l’alcool qui pourtant est bien présent!!!!!! C’est le Pont Charles de Pragues!Un véritable trésor!!!!

Dégustée dans un verre calice Maredsous. Belle robe brun sombre, carbonatation intense et mousse ivoire persistante. Le nez est complexe et d’une parfaite harmonie : levures, malts et fruits secs, prunes, raisins... Le goût nous emmène vers les sommets : équilibre idéal entre les notes fruitées et les malts, complémentarité entre la douceur et l’amertume. L’arrière bouche prolonge longuement ces extraordinaires sensations. La Chapelle Sixtine des bières!

Pours dark brown with a beautiful tan head, mostly lasting, great lacing. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel, fruitiness - grapes and apple. Flavours are very smooth and well balanced: malt, Belgian-like yeasty, delicious bitter touch and a soft dryness to it. The alcohol is fairly well hidden, I only really notice it after a while. Extremely creamy, long gradual finish although just a medium body (medium to full at most). Very nice indeed.
