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.

LadyCooper (100) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2007
Tan head with a deep molasses colour. Deep plum aroma, with a flavour of malt, raisins, molasses, and brown sugar. Fruity, sweet, complex, big warm kick of alcohol at the end. Holy god, this is amazing.

Capa (2353) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 13, 2007
Pours a nice brown with a large light tan head. Pretty strong aroma. Spices, malt, yeast, dark fruit, and alcohol. Smells delicious. Mouth is full and fairly creamy with nice carbonation. Flavor is full of spice, sweet malt, molasses, dark and slightly bitter fruit, and some alcohol. FInishes with some dry bitterness and noticeable alcohol. I’ll see this one again.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2007
Drank in a trappist glass. Poors a slightly darker poor than its predecessors with a foamy brown head. Distinct Rochefort smell with dates, blackberries, brown sugar, creamy nutmeg and a hint of cinnamon and ALOT more. Extremely perfect mouthfeel, very thick and cream... even the alcohol is different. Good carbonation. Nice sweet caramel taste added the dark fruits. There is a salty feel to it as well...??? Explosion of flavors.... WOW!

Periander (50) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Pours medium brown with an off white fast disappearing head. Toffeeish aroma doesn’t really give away the complex and wonderful taste. Creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a very long finish. Noticable alcohol is only real mar.

Another obligatory rating, it seems ... and, concurring with almost everyone, yes, this is a great beer. All the fruits everyone always mentions ... raisins, prunes, plums, currants. Vinous. A bit nutty. Relatively simple malt base lets all of the yeasty goodness come through in this one.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2007 Beautiful look and nose. Dry bitter, mild, yet long lasting. Lacks the annoying sweetness and fruit peal acidicy that hampers most belgian brews. Complex mix of dark fruits. Masterful in all respects.

Beerdedone (3003) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Pours a very dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of sweet malts,figs, and molasses. Flavor was outstanding with dark fruit,caramel, and raisin with a nice strong alcohol taste. Very smooth on the palate and full bodied. A excellent belgian quad

Brix (647) - DENMARK - MAR 8, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2007 Fresh bottle. Tasted 2007-03-08. This one was in quite a hurry to leave the bottle. Tissues where applied! After settling down it poured nicely with a beautiful head, that disappeared a little too fast for my liking (30 seconds, and no sign of any head left). Very deep, dark colour. The aroma was unbelievable; Very heavy with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, banana, caramel and alcohol. Ditto taste. Texture: Creamy, full bodied. I very much like this one, though I feel it will result in a massive hangover, if not handled with care!

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 8, 2007
A nice strong dark brown munk brew, conditioned in the bottle. Bitter-sweet flavour with a somewhat bitter aftertaste. A great beer that can last for years! One of the top beers of the world.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 I couldn’t wait to try this beer. It poured a deep dark amber/dark brown color. The head on this beer is a creamy beige/light tan color. The bubbles were tiny and crisp in the head. The smell is malty with raisin, carmel and alcohol. The taste is medium bodied with hints of raisin, plums, dried fruit and chocolate. As the beer warmed, the alcohol was more apparent. The mouthfeel is tremendous and really sticks around a while. Rochefort 10 really warms you up after a few sips. This is the best of the Trappistes beers that I have tasted. This is a world class beer that should be worshiped.
