Pours clear deep mahogany with tall off-white head. Aroma of nuts, dried fruit, brown sugar, mild herbs. Taste is mellow herbal and spicy up front followed by a raisin sweet lingering finish, some lingering herbal notes as well. Light to medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation. deepdrinker (385) - Leeds, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2017

Bottle at home.
One of the best authentic Trappist style beers out there. I would say, for me at least, this is better than Westmalle Dubbel.
I like everything from the carbonation, to the imense aroma and spot on belgian flavours.
Definitely a character I have grown to adore. Mpuntmuts (372) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2017
Clear brown pour with a small tan head. Yeast, roasted malts, bread, biscuits, caramel and burnt sugar, dried fruits for aroma. Balanced mild taste of sweet, sour and bitter with a nice little warming sensation at the end. Medium body with medium carbonation. One of the classics, one of the greats. pitch992 (254) - SLOVENIA - NOV 9, 2017
Bottle from Mercator Hipermarket. Good drinkability, ok aroma levels, somewhat too little depth in aroma and taste for a brune though.

Mahongin värinen lasissa. Tuoksu hiivainen ja taatelinen. Maussa hedelmää ja hiivaa edelleen. Suutuntuma tasainen ja keskitäyteläinen. Kohtalainen hapotus. DavidSvinth (446) - DENMARK - OCT 20, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Dejlig belgisk øl. Balance mellem det bitre, det søde og smagen af gær og malt. KevinReddirt (263) - Midland, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2017
At times one is fortunate, located Achel 8 Bruin in Santa Fe with a number of other hard to find beers. My Rochefort Trappistes glass receives half of the 11.2 oz bottle. It serves up a dark amber-brown liquid and an eggshell white head with steady carbonation. The nose is rather pleasant, yeast, spun sugar, grain. A sip delivers yellow fruit, yeast again, bread, green apple and an unexpected lingering bitterness. A great, late afternoon treat. Now for that other half.
