This beer was originally only brewed for New Year's Eve. Fortunately, this Trappist strong-dark ale from Brasserie Rochefort is now available year-round! And good thing too: its rich maltiness, brown sugar, dried fruits, is not one to miss. While this beer tastes rather sweet at the beginning, some spicy notes, high carbonation, and a semi-dry finish help to balance it out. Aromas of dried fruits, caramel, spice, and a warming alcohol just add to its elegance and richness.
Alongside five other Belgian breweries, the Rochefort brewery--located inside of the walls Saint-Rémy Abbey in Rochefort, Belgium--is one of only 10 breweries worldwide permitted to carry the Authentic Trappist Product label on their products.
