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.

My first time with this beer, thanks to Oz for supplying it. Smell is somewhat boozy but I also get a bunch of fruit notes as well. Nice pour with a really nice head. Dark berries, grapes, dark chocolate aroma. Very nice sipper, the alcohol does not overwhelm, just a hint of burn going down, but the dark chocolate bitterness adds a nice touch at the end. A really great beer!

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.

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.

Pours deep brown and clear with a frothy and long-lasting tan foam. Rich and complex aroma of caramel, chocolate, raisin and sweet plum. Medium/full body, creamy feel, lively carbonation. Taste is a bit drier than the aroma would suggest, and starts off with dried fruits, grape and some residual but well hidden alchohol. Long finish with sweet licorice, a hint of ripe apples and a subdued bitterness. One of my absolute favorite beers!

Pours a deep reddish brown with an off-white head and lacing. It has a rich aroma of raisin, wine, and some plum. The flavor is raisin, grape, and sugar up front with a semisweet backbone and long finish.

Even if lately i'm leaning more to bitter and bitter ales, this is one of my favourites. Simply flawless!

Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass. Trappist, so it’s juste good !!! We’re in front of a deep aroma, enhanced with a heavy but sweet trappist yeast taste. Great palate and nice dark brown colour. Go drink it !
