The top product from the Rochefort Trappist brewery. Dark color, full and very impressive taste. Strong plum, raisin, and black currant palate, with ascending notes of vinousness and other complexities.

Brown pour with plenty of sediment under a big, foamy white head. Aroma is of yeast esters from clove to banana, as well as coriander, dried fruits, etc. Flavor is immensely complex Belgian yeast esters and spices. Solid malt in the background. Drier than I expected from an 11% beer, especially after having had Rochefort 8, which I felt had much more residual sugars in it. Very floral in overall flavor impression. Excellent.

Very common in Belgium, you fall in love of it the moment you taste it. A real trappist with alcoholic/sweet taste. Excellent beer!

Bottle at home from Freshfields in Croydon. Pours dark red brown with an off white head. Aroma is boozy dried fruits, molasses, bread, caramel and a little clove. Taste is a sweet boozy hit of dried fruit, a bit like a good Christmas cake, some clove, banana and toffee in the background with just a little boozy bite as the sweetness mellows out. Nice and smooth and definitely drinkable.

Bottle, BB date still over 4 years away. Good carbonation, head. Dark amber, clear. Aroma slightly spicy, fruity, caramel; very pleasant but delicate. Taste: caramel, dark berries, licorice; slightly tart, bitterness sharp but not overpowering. Very sweet. Mouthfeel medium to full. Short, slightly thin finish with a bite of alcohol. Too sweet on its own. Could be perfect with cheese after an excellent meal. Dangerous because one cannot really taste the alcohol...A suitable sourness would nicely balance this beer and make it greater still.

Fles gedeeld met LiekevdV. Het is een donker bruin bier met veel koolzuur. Het heeft een erg gebrande smaak.

A pesar de la bena presencia y color me resulta empalagosa, excesivamente dulce.

Een heel lekker tamelijk zwaar bier. Zeer stevige smaak die tot het einde blijft. De Rochefort 6 en 8 smaken identiek maar zijn wat dunner van smaak. Dit is geen bier om mee te beginnen, alle andere bieren smaken dan heel waterig, mooie afsluiter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I dont speak beer! Still very sophisticated aroma. This was my wifes favorites as it was smooth to drink with a respectable intrinsic flavor profile. Drink this it would make you cool!

W aromacie nuty chlebowe, lekki szlachetny alkohol, przyprawy. Całość niezbyt intensywna. Piana duża, duże pęcherzyki, beżowa, szybko opada. W smaku czuć ta Belgię, wyraźnie przyprawy korzenne, wysokie wysycenie, całość szlachetna, alkohol genialnie ukryty. Czuć śliwkę, ciemne owoce, rodzynki. Jak na 27blg nie jest zbyt gęste i wypełniające. Chyba liczyłem na większą słodycz. W zamian jest szlachetna wytrawnosc. Ciekawa pozycja.
