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.

Poured a very dark colour from a bottle with a very thick head. The aroma was to me very caramel and spice but very pleasant. The taste was very good and not to sweet for the alcohol content. I really enjoyed this beer and hope to try again.

Toujours intéressant de revisiter un classique intemporel, surtout lorsque la bière a quelques années dans le corps. Ce millésime 2011 offre une mousse assez onctueuse qui se pose sur une bière brune aux reflets rubis. Au nez, des noisettes grillées et des prunes confites sont supportées par une vague d’éthanol bien présent. En bouche, l’amorce de la madérisation est très discrète, ce qui confère un goût fruité plus prononcé à la bière. Raisins secs, fruits rouges et malts joufflus sont enveloppés par une chaleur alcoolisée prenante. Elle a encore beaucoup de corps et de goût, une grande bière.

Bottle pour split. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a foamy head. Beautiful beer. Subtle dark fruit, raisin and malt aroma. Delicious smooth flavor. A warming beer with the higher alcohol, but it’s practically non existent in the taste. Couldn’t get enough of this stuff. Definitely going to track more down. Incredible.

330ml bottle. Aroma of malt, wood, fruit and sweet caramel. Flavour is alcohol, brown sugar, vanilla and spice. A brown coloured ale with a large off white head and a strong and complex flavour.

Ottimo aroma, corposa, alcolica quanto basta. Una gioia per il palato. La migliore birra che ho bevuto.

Nez: toffee, chocolat, pruneaux Bouche: sucre, caramel, blé, chocolat, alcool. C’est bon mais sa réputation est à mon sens très surfaite!

Dark beer with a tall head. Complex and spicy taste with a persistent aftertaste. Warming alcohol which does not compromise the taste.

BBE 1/2018 bottle. Pours clear with bits of yeast sediment. Brown head and reddish brown color. Nose has malts, licorice, raisins and hints of pure alcohol. Mouth is a balanced sweetness with just a little bit of bitterness and a complex thick texture. Finish is long and smooth. Overall a very kick-ass beer after a little under 2 years of maturing. I’m glad I have more of these in the cellar.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2014 Probably not really my style, after being an early fave in my craft journey. But a ripper if that's your thing. Big and fruity. Solid

330cc bottle. Fantastic beer. It felt a bit to alcoholic. I will buy a few to keep in for a year or so.

Molto buona, corposa, con molto carattere. Berla invecchiata di 3 anni permette di scoprire nuovi sapori.
