Great dark raisin color and aroma. A sublime taste of raisin and plums backed by the wonderful warmth of the high alchol. Put me down for the ascending notes of vinousness and other complexities too. good finish on the palate. Great beer.

bottle: pors a dark brown cleaner looking than the other rocheforts, with nice fizzy off white head. the aroma is of dark dark fruits raisins for sure and sweet sugars also some vinous qualities. flavour is dark fruits raisin and plum with a nice bitter finish that is kinda dry. i cant get over how good the dark fruit taste is. fantastic.

Upon getting the first whiff of this brew, I immediately thought of plums, wine and raisins. Fruit and bitterness mix, with a bit more carbonation than I think necessary, to make one incredible beer. As close to perfect that I have tasted so far.

One of the best beers ive ever tried. Tastes of chocolate, roasted malts, fruits (raisins, plums). Nice carbonation. Alcohol can be tasted but it blends nicely.

This is pretty much the king. Low carbonation with a nose of alcohol, raisns, and other dark fruits. This beer has a lot going on. All of this is complimented by just enough bitterness to put this as THE classic beer. I dont know if there is a better beer. But the search continues.

Really kicks you in the ass. I dont know if Id go so far as to give it a 100, but definitely a beer Id get again. A big fan of quadrupels, this one has hints of chocolate and fruit.

11.2 oz bottle. Dark brown color with slight head. Aroma of dark fruits and malt. Alcohol is present but well integrated. Dark fruit flavor mix with caramel tones. This is as good as it gets.

Compact and creamy foam, I like it! round aroma, very long end, pleasant. Balanced, even if the alcohol taste is persistent. Maybe the n.8 is slightly better.. 33cl bottle, 11,3vol

Spied this beer while cruzing the aisles at the local grocery store and remembered the name... and was not dissapointed Appearance is of dark carmel with a full head that lingers a lacey goodness throughout the glass. Dont know if the look gets any better. Smells of slightly sweet malty with an almost herbal overtones. Has a nice mouthfeel of balance between creamy and carbonation. Taste is very easy and comforting with an alcohol hit thats almost medicinal, but more comforting than disturbing. Malt and carmel bring a second flavor and then leaves the alcohol to linger yet not overpower. Leaves you wanting more.
