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.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Bottle from Binnys. Pours dark brown, slight hint of ruby; thin off-white head that didnt 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, Im still not a fan of quads, and its 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

0.33 bottle. Pours redish amber, with nice beige head and load of bubbles. Its like a living ecosystem in a glass. Aroma is huge: raspberry, sour cherries, liquorish sweetness, alcoholic spicyness. A medium to full body, topped with a light carbonation. Flavors are complex and subtle at the same time: rasperry jam, sour-cherry liquor, slight hint of yeast and sweet malts. Balance bertween alcoholic spicyness and warmth, sweetness is on point being tamed by a light bitterness at the end. Master class.

Dość słaby aromat karmelowo alkoholowy. Dość wytrawne, alkoholowe. Nie rozumiem hypu tego piwa.

Understandably one of the best beer in the world. A bit high strong. Still a very straight drink that goes down too fast.

Ciemnobrązowe o wysokim nasyceniu. W aromacie śliwki i suszone owoce. W smaku podobnie + lekko wyczuwalny alkohol, ktry rozgrzewa przełyk. Niewielka goryczka.

Davros IX (118) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2017
It pours beautifully with a small head and a lovely colour in the glass. A nice aroma of burnt malt, but there was, to me, an extreme dichotomy between the taste and the mouthfeel. The taste was a typical dark ale, but the mouthfeel was something special; rich, velvety and a tang from the alcohol. It was really quite odd and while enjoyable as an experiment, it is not something that I will rush to experience again.

Bottle. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark fruits, raisins and plums. The taste was similar to the aroma with more dark fruits, raisins, figs and some earthiness. Really tasty.
