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.

Bottle from Binny’s. Pours dark brown, slight hint of ruby; thin off-white head that didn’t stick around. Chocolate and cherry aroma, with a good bit of cough syrup thrown in the mix along with vanilla. Very rich and sweet, yet balanced well with a little bitter finish followed by a huge caramel aftertaste. Extremely full bodied, light carb. A bit boozy, but I have no doubt that this would improve with age. Overall, I’m still not a fan of quads, and it’s no westy, but still a fantastic brew, given the style. Solid sipper. 4.5/4/4/3.5/4 *** Tasted blind as part of top 10 quad tasting with callmemickey and sideshowe. A - translucent dark brown with little head. S - Banana peel, chocolate, some roasted nuts and a nice earthy smell. T - Very rich sweet treacle and toffee with a slightly roasty bitter finish. A sweet dark caramel lingers on the tongue. M - Perfect carbonation, little heat O - Incredibly drinkable and a fantastic accessible version of the style. Finished tied for 3rd with Westy 12 for me. 4/4.5/4/4.5/4.5

Clear dark brown with nice thick beige head. Aroma is plums, raisins, berries, bread and yeast. Taste is nice sweet and fruity with some chocolate hints. Nice complex mouthful. Medium body. Good beer, little bit boozy.

Dette er bare en af verdens bedste øl. Så kompleks og alligevel så rund i smagen. Den kan det som belgiske øl bare kan: Henrykke gang på gang. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a world class beer. I compare it to the sacred Westy 12. Easier to find and a very enjoyable, complex beer . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aromat to ciemne suszone owoce, cukier trzcinowy, spieczona skórka od chleba. Smak: czekolada, rodzynki, wędzone śliwki, czarna porzeczka, pumpernikel, karmel, melasa, oleiste, alkohol dość dobrze ukryty. Pite n-ty raz, ale za każdym następnym już nie robi takiego wrażenia jak na początku. Podobnie sprawa się ma z Westveleren XII.

Bijl (631) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2017
Heel donkerbruin met rode gloed, troebel, beige schuimkraag die vrij snel inzakt. Aroma: Donker fruit, rozijn, karamel, toffee, chocolade, donkere geroosterde mout. Smaak: Karamel, toffee, zoetig maar niet te zoet, geroosterde mouten, donker brood, chocolade,  donker fruit, rozijn, wijnachtig, flink kruidig en peperig gehopt.  Een prima hopbitter... zeker voor een Belgische trappist. Lekker Wat alcohol warmte die uitnodigen om te sippen. Volle body, zacht, romig en dik, voldoende koolzuur, afdronk is kruidig , zoet en ook iets bitter en ook plakkerig. Heerlijke volle Trappist.

Så er der belgisk øl for alle pengene. Stor smag af belgisk gær, humle og karamel.

Black current, stone fruits, golden syrup, molasses, roasty aroma and backed up by an eaqualy complex yet delicious taste. Rich creamy body witha crisp finish and a lingering alcoholic warmness. A meal in itself. A delicious heavy hitter!
