What I like most about the Trappists is taht they seem to generate so complex beers with "just" hops, malt and yeast. I wery much like the "banana" in this beer, and Im going to make some stuffed chokolade with this next week....

Thick and dark with a one finger light brown head. Smells chocolate, toffee, raisin, pear, coriander, gentle orange, and mild alcohol. Taste is a delicious rummy caramel, brown sugar, licorice, toffee, and chocolate with a nice alcohol sting. Well balanced...utterly stunning.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 Pours deepest darkest purple, huge almond head. Dark fruit aroma. Flavor is mainly dark fruits with crystals malts, toffee, nutty, cocoa, chocolate, some light fruits apples, pears, raisons, fruits and spicy but with sweetness balancing it out. Alcohol is hardly there but definitiely warming, carbonation is very high and I like it, easy to drink, taste great. Excellent beer.

sleepingbear (27) - Lake Leelanau - Detroit, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 This beer was way over my head- or so I was told as the beer geeks prepped me for a sip of the only allocated beer in Michigan. I was ready to not be impressed as this is not my usual style of liking. A nose alive with coco and musty black raspberries. A body and flavor that was perfectly balanced. Very complex and flavorful- This one Ill ration, a twelve pack would last a year!

Definitly a sipping beer - Full/Complex flavors as noted in other reviews - very well balanced and creamy smooth - WOW! Although maybe not the best choice if youre looking to pound a few quickly... possibly too flavorful for some - just right for me...

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - AUG 17, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2007 Poured a very dark brown with a 2 inch head that slowly faded to a thin cap that stuck around, and nice lacing. Smells of sweet spiced plums/prunes and a little cherry, candied sugar and a touch of caramel. Taste is sweet and slightly chocolatey, with dark fruits, alcohol and a little bit medicinal. Very rich and smooth. This is definitely a beer to savor.

Another great trappist. Runner up behind Sint Sixtus in mine and many other peoples eyes. Personally I prefer the (8). The Rochefort (10) gets too strong. You shouldnt be able to taste the alcohol

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2005 Dark brown with a nearly invisible red hue, with lots of big particles and a brownish head. Complex malty aroma, alcohol, a little yeast and coriander. Raw, full bodied malty flavour, a lot less bitter than the other Rocheforts. Raw, earthy, malty finish. Clearly the less good part about this beer.

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 Very nice quality beer. Bitter, malty taste. Drink slowly and enjoy every sip.
