Abbaye des Rocs Grand Cru has a rich, complex fruit aroma of cherries, golden raisins, peaches, and assorted dried fruit, laced with honey and caramel. Smooth, rich flavors reminiscent of cherries dipped in caramel, finishing with notes of dried chocolate, roasted almonds, and a hint of molasses.

750ml capped bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger and a half of light beige head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and dark fruits with hints of chocolate and toasted almonds. Taste is a light fruit tartness with a caramel and chocolate malty sweetness with a spicy hop bitterness with some almonds in the mix. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice brew that suits the style well, with a good balance of flavours and body. Recommended.

Magnum bottle. The beer is very similar to the normal version. Look out for strooong gushing. I lost almost half of the bottle. I’m also surprised I didn’t rate it on RB the day I drank it. Anyway, still a great beer with complex aroma and flavor. Not expensive but not much different, maybe a bit more dry then the normal version.

Robijnrood helder bier met een caramelachtig, fruitig aroma. In de smaak komt de caramel ook naar boven. Smaak ebt snel weg. Zwaar bier wat je snel te vlug drinkt.

Pulloa avatessa olut ryöppyää ulos pullosta hirveällä tahdilla. Lasiin päädyttyään paksu vaahto häviää kuitenkin nopeasti ja jättää vain aavistuksen pienen vaahtoreunuksen. Tummanruskea olut. Tuoksu todella houkutteleva, suklainen, tummaa hedelmää ja luumua. Maku maltaisen makea ja pehmeä, tumman hedelmäinen kokonaisuus. Täyteläinen olut pitkällä maltaisen makealla suun täyttävällä jälkimaulla. Runsas hiilihappoisuus pehmentää kokonaisuutta tyylikkäästi. Todellinen taideteos.

Alone at home. Brown colored beer with small off-white head and no carbonation visible. Malty fruited aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is sour malty slightly roasted and alcoholic. Nice one!

Taster at The Mondial de la biere. The color is a dark brown with thick beige head. The taste is sweet and heavy of fruits like cherries and also dark chocolat and herbs with a good serving of malt plus yeast. The aroma is pleasing to the nose and lets you know what is coming in the taste.I enjoyed this beer a lot.

Lore (2990) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 16, 2016
hazy walnut brown colour with a lot of small particles, minimal beige head; aroma of dried cherry (maybe plum and figs, too), dark chocolate, walnut, wet leather and minimal herbal notes; taste is the same with less intensiveness and Belgian yeast notes; almost perfect - if the taste was as intensive as the aroma it would be a magnificient masterpiece...anyway, it’s still brilliant!

1.5l bottle thanks to Lore. Hazy dark orange body with lots of floating sediment. Aroma of caramel, orange zest, figs, raisins and pepper. Taste of candi sugar, orange zest, raisins, dates, cloves and some floral hops. Very smooth beer. Based on the aroma it seems to be stronger, but the taste is not boozy. Awesome beer.

A bottle that has been lying around for several years. It says "Brasserie des Rocs." I remember being unimpressed with this originally and put aside a couple bottles for a few years. A cloudy brown with small beige head, a ton of large particulate matter. Aroma sugary malt, caramel, chocolate, subtle toasted nuts. Medium body, lightly carbonated, a touch of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet but finishes dryer. Caramel, dark fruits, maybe a little dry hops, figs. Not sure if the original bottle I had wasn’t good or if it’s improved with age but this is quite nice.

Hazy amber. Rocky, airy offwhite head. Aroma has caramel and dried fruit. Flavour is malty with sweet fruit, light spice, fruit, brown sugar and warming alcohol. Light notes of anise. Good.
