At first, at the shop, I glanced at this bottle and sure enough it matched the picture on this site. Then looked at the price... 6.69 for 1 bottle?!?! So, I gave in. Wow, Definately the best beer Ive had. Strong walnut, raisin, almost cinnamon flavor. Not too heavily carbinated, goes down really smoothly. Leaves a bit of a tingly warm feeling in my chest, probably due to the 11 % alc/vol. Love the remnants at the bottom, gotta give in a little stir to ensure that your last gulp gets the full intended flavor. BELLISIMA

Creamy, tan head; gorgeous violet color. Aroma: dark, dark, dark, with spices, dark fruits, grapes, berries,strawberries...distinctly port-like,plummy, raisinish. Terriffically strong, incredibly warming, the feel and the heat of a glass of cognac! Absolutely perfect!

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2012 Poured a big, brown head. Opaque brown with sediment left in the bottle. Wow, great nose. Fruits and spices that blend perfectly. A big, beautiful beer.

This is a truly great beer. For me this is also one of overall richest beers I have ever tasted. So much so, that alough it is brilliant, I couldnt drink more than one bottle at a time. Fantastic beer!

Pours deep brown with solid foamy lite-brown head. The alcohol is apparent on the aroma and and at first whiff seems to dominate, but it is merely just one scent in the bouquet. Figs and raisins are definately present on the nose as well as some bready, yeasty hints. Plums, peaches and raisins are on the palate, but there are also subtle hints of caramel and lingering spice:

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 The aroma is rich on alcohol and no wonder with over 11%. You can also smell the malt and perhaps some fruit, which I couldnt really figure out what. It tastes a bit burned malt and caramel and then of course the alcohol which warms. A very nice beer - the best of the Rochefort!

Pours deep brown with solid foamy lite-brown head. The alcohol is apparent on the aroma and and at first whiff seems to dominate, but it is merely just one scent in the bouquet. Figs and raisins are definately present on the nose as well as some bready, yeasty hints. Plums, peaches and raisins are on the palate, but there are also subtle hints of caramel and lingering spice: coriander, cloves and pepper...intriguing. The alcohol and warming effect are present but not overwhelming. The flavors certainly are complex and seemed to evolve throughout the tasting. Nicely carbonated and very drinkable for such a high abv, which is carefully balanced within the entirety of the beer. This beer deserves the reputation it has of being one of the best in the world. Fantastic!

Bottle, bought in Northern New Jersey. Solid, tall head with a rich dark color. Aroma has a hint of raisins and fruit. The flavor has a long pull of fruits, possibly currant with a smooth finish and chocolate finish. Great drink from start to finish, for 11.3% its absurdly smooth, fantastic beer to drink slow and enjoy.
