My first time with this beer, thanks to Oz for supplying it. Smell is somewhat boozy but I also get a bunch of fruit notes as well. Nice pour with a really nice head. Dark berries, grapes, dark chocolate aroma. Very nice sipper, the alcohol does not overwhelm, just a hint of burn going down, but the dark chocolate bitterness adds a nice touch at the end. A really great beer!

This beer, as I feel ALL Belgium Trappiste ales are, are of the highest quality.Not much to say, other than this ale is supreme above most other beers. Its pedigree and quality is nearly above reproach! It does NOT get much better than this. Orval, in my estimation, is in the same category, but its aroma is a little better, more floral.

W aromacie suszone ciemne owoce, śliwka, rodzynki, alkohol, nuty chlebowe. W smaku jest dosyć wytrawnie. Są ciemne owoce, skrka chleba i ten alkohol. Może leżakowanie by mu pomogło, bo alko niestety mocno przeszkadza.

Bottle, bb 28.04.2020. Ruby brown color, big off-white head. Aromas of dried fruits, plums, brown sugar. Sweet with well perceptible alcohol. Quite good, but not my cup of tea.

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

WingmanWillis (274) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2017
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.

ClearHead (18) - FINLAND - MAY 24, 2017
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
