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.

Crazy expensive but this quad really does live up to its hype. Sweet and thick with an in your face alcohol presence [in a good way]. This is a special occasion beverage for sure.

Simply Outstanding! Tried this in Brussels and carried a few bottles back to the US with me. Dark color & full of flavor. A Must although very pricey stateside at about $7/btl.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 [Sampled summer 2005 at the outside fireplace with Ren.] Surprisingly less alcoholic in the "aroflavor" than the R8 with outbursts like "Irish Coffee". Personally I prefer mentioning "IC" as "Its like a R10". One of my favourites always ready for beergeeks.

milewide (1751) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Dark brown color. Lots of fruit smell and taste. Medium body. Huge head. This is a top quality brew, but a bit sweet and lacking in hops for my taste. Alcohol well hidden.

This is how a Beligum trappiste should be. Very strong and tasty. Has a very malty taste which also leads to its very high alcohol content. Color is a nice dark amber whcih lets you know that it could have lots of flavor. This beer is at top of the list in my book.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle from Systembolaget. Pouring more praise on this heavenly beer is unnecessary. It truely is a complete beer in all senses with the best palate of any beer I have ever tasted. Ive been lucky to try several bottles (one in particular that was five years old and would have warranted a perfect 5). The difference between that landmark beer moment and this particular bottle is that in my experience fresh Rochefort 10 has a more aggressive phenol quality to it that softens with age. The juicy figs and raisin notes also thicken with time, lending a heavier, more aggrandized character to this exeptional beer. Ill re-rate a vintage bottle in a few years to see if I can reach a perfect 5 once again.

Very good, strong raisin and plum flavor one of the best beers I have had.

Foxbush (1504) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 This was one of my beers of Christmas 2006. It is also my first Rochefort beer. The alcohol was a high 11.3% but it was well muted. There was little head and the dark color was opaque. The flavors of raisins and plums were present. I want to taste another to appreciate this beer. I received anothe r one Christmas 2008. The beer poured with much froth filling the glass. There were suspended particles in a dark amber beer. The high alcohol is very deceptive.
