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.

Augdraught1981 (133) - Harlem, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2013 Pours a murky brown with a tan / khaki head that disappears quickly. Aromas & taste are of alchohol, caramel, butterscotch & a witbier spiced flavor. The flavors are deepened as it warms and absolutely should be drank at temperatures only slightly cooler than room temp. The initial mouthfeel is almost like a wine and I got an alchohol buzz on the very first sip almost immediately, WOW. I enjoyed trying to pick out the flavors & aromas as much as I enjoyed drinking it, fantastic beer!

King_Alex_II (170) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Dark brown color with white head. The smell is a little heavy with caramel and licorice notes. The carbonation strikes me as a bit too aggressive (it obviously gets a bit calmer after a while). The taste is less heavy than expected. Almost watery concerning the viscosity, the taste is far from watery. As expected, some coffee, chocolate, toffee and licorice . the taste is warming, as you would think, if you read the alcohol content on the lable. Still a nice beer, but not my favorite style, or my favorite beer of this style.

Machomortale (1) - BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2015 does not count
in my opinion, Belgium ’s finest brown beer without a doubt. So ritch in flavour, it’s a journey on it’s own.

Wischylini (144) - Grimstad, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2015
Pours a mahogany brown with a dense tan head. Aromas are completely subdued by alcohol and a nasty bubblegum aroma. Taste is sweet and not much else. There is a long aftertaste, filled with hot esters, fusel alcohols and solvents. Mouthfeel is slightly fizzy, but still feels sticky.

Dark brown, white head, really little bubbles, stays to the end. Aroma of dried fruits (cherry, peach), raisins, caramel, some dark chocolate. Taste: medium sweet, light sour, more malts less fruits than in aroma, with dry fruity-alcoholic (like wine) finish. Full body, slick texture, lively carbonation. Overall: Great beer for sure, although expected more.

LetsGoState (624) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Appearance is large white head with a deep, unfiltered amber and some yeast. Aroma is a mix of alcohol, spice, and sweet malt. Taste is some sweet spice with a hit of alcohol. Overall right in the middle of the pack of Belgians for me.

matty (220) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2015
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a deep brown, like mahogany with a 1/2" thick tan head. Can see some yeast floating around in the liquid. Definitely some dried fruit aromas with a touch of sourness. Full bodied and a little sticky, the taste is on the sweet side. Lively carbonation on the tongue. The finish gets a little sour. Not noticing the alcohol taste, but there is a little warming after the swallow. Can’t find anything wrong about this one!

TychoJames (253) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2015
Flaska systembolaget. Mörkbrun kulör med beiget skum. Stor härlig doft. Knäck, plommon, russin, mandelmassa. Mycket komplex smak med äpple och russin. Fat, lite tobak och bränt socker. Söt med fin torr avslutning.

Yorker (1394) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours murky dark brown with a lot of sediment and an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are dried fruit, malt, alcohol, and yeast - with a dry finish.

Stoned99 (213) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle from local Saq. Aroma: dark red fruits, sugar candies, app: brownish with nice medium frothy beige head. Taste and palate : full body, medium sweetness, short sweet and fruity finish. Good carbonation. Overall : enjoy this beer quite a lot. It’s perfectly balanced, it’s sweet but not too much. A quadruple at its best.
