UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 Bottle, 33cl. Pours a dark brown with a nice head. The sweet aroma was awesome. Had a malty, fruity flavor. This is one of my favorite beers of all. Enjoyed this while watching the Steelers win the Super Bowl, made it even better.

I was very impressed this is a well balanced beer, wonderful aroma, flavor was very good. If you haven’t had a Trappist Rochefort, you have to go and get one or two, best server in a trappist glass, this is a very fine and elegant beer. I make it a first for anyone of my friends when I introduce them to the world of Belgium Ales.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
An incredible beer with tremendous, complex, aromas and flavors. This beer is a world class brew, and one that any beer lover should seek out. Rochefort 10 pours to a murky, deep caramel color with tall, rocky, tan head, and a soft carbonation. The nose on this beer is complex and and aromatic with big aromas of sweet malt, raisin, plum, caramel, tanned leather, and peppery alcohol. The palate is lush and full with just layers of flavors. Sweet malt, raisin, plum, pipe tobacco, tanned leather, chocolate, candy sugar, coat the tongue and sooth. Rochefort 10 finishes with more of those big complex flavors, then ends with a warming, soothing, burn that lingers. Match this with a strong and sharp cheese course, or enjoy as an ultimate sipping brew.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2007 Dark with light brown head. Smell was of sweet fruit with an essence of plum. Very pleasant flavor of fruit and seemed diffrent in the fact that it wasn’t bitter as other trappist are.
Update: Recently had a five year aged bottle. It was very nice I think the flavor and aroma of the fruit was more pronounced. The taste was strong but the alcohol tangy bite had changed to a moderate tingle. Still pleasant from start to finish!
