A great on for #100. Have had other times but for the past few months it has been difficult to locate. Dark brown or russte pour with an off white head. Smells of plum or prune and other dried fruits, a little sweet finish, does not seem as strong as alcoholic content lists but that could be because of this brews excellence. italianish (1) - Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2007 does not count
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 I’ve 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 nandi (1) - sombor, SERBIA - JUL 8, 2007 does not count
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! Kirill (277) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2007

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 couldn’t drink more than one bottle at a time.

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: uhre (384) - DENMARK - JUL 2, 2007
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 couldn’t 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! cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2007

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! gmcase (115) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2007
bottle. Impressive head with very dark color. Good flavors but I love the carbonation and lacing. B EAU TIFUL.
