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.

Pours a very dark brown color. Smell is of dark fruits and alcohol. Taste is alcohol up front, dark fruits, spices. Overall not bad, but does not live up to the hype imo.

vinivini (714) - BELARUS - JUL 31, 2015
Deep amber colour, opaque, tall off-white head shrinking to a thick & creamy film clutching at glass. The aroma is yeasty, perfumy, some champagne, candy, roast, dry fruit, honeymelon, earth. Some notes are hard to define. Full body. Very warming. A dozen of taste aspects: dried fruit, sherry, champagne, liqorice, liqueur, praline, cognac, spicy yeast. It’s hard to find words for the complexity of this brew. Some hops delivers the finish of the perfect picture. Splendid.

Tolles Bier, tolle Farbe, super Schaum. Sehr rund, komplexe Aromen, leicht alkoholisch. Langer, leckerer Nachgeschmack.

ctipping (216) - Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Originally reviewed on 9/14/2011. 330 mL bottle poured into a chalice. Bottled 2/16/2011. Murky brown body that has the slightest red tint to it. You can’t see much through it, though. A surprising khaki head on top that seems to die down and come back to life every time I move the beer. The lacing is substantial and also fascinating to watch. The swirling patterns are like Rorschach tests. Yeasty aromas that manifest themselves as bananas. Lots of dark fruits of every variety. Amazingly complex and delightful aroma, perhaps a bit overpowered by booze. The flavors that come across are just amazing. Raisins, plums, figs, and an estery banana flavor to bundle them all together. Again, the booze is prevalent, but it’s nice. There’s even a slight bitterness at the end and I don’t know where it comes from. Full bodied and warming. The alcohol burn is present, but still appropriate. It’s a little bit dry in the finish. Outstanding, save a bit of excessive alcohol burn.

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...

dodskenta (91) - Rönninge, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2015
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.
