4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow. Rochefort 10 is an opaque walnut-colored beer with an elastic cappucino-colored head that leaves hearty lacing. It is bright and fruity on the nose, with yellow apples, light sweet grass, cinnamon, raisin and wood. It is soft and fluffy yet lively on the tounge. It seems slightly acidic. It is well-bittered and well-balanced. The flavor is thick: chewy malt that hints at salty and even unami-- it spans the tounge. World class!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2007 Bottle Pours a cloudy dark brown with a big creamy light tan head. The lacing is excellent and the head lasts well. Aroma is very pleasent with hints of plum, wood, and cola. Has a soft sweet aroma. Taste is excellent. Carbonation is perfect, the mix is great, goes down with total ease. This is a full bodied beer with an oily alcohol texture. Has a touch of a sweet finish, but its very good. I like this beer.

Great, but expensive beer: $6.99/330mL. The bottle I had was a little skunky from being lightstruck. I bought it at Whole Foods. I’ve bought it before in Japan for $10/bottle. Pours very dark, with a full almost creamy head, that never went away. The alchohol was very well hidden. Very little hops. Perfect amount of sweetness (well maybe a touch more would be better). No strong flavors, I would almost call it mild. Great beer.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a dark, hazy amber-brown with an off-white head. Aromas of raisin, caramel, vanilla, and alcohol. Very rich and creamy in the mouth. The alcohol is very present in the flavor along with raisin, caramel and a little peach and pear. There’s sort of an earthy quality to the flavor as well.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good, drinkable, smooth, rich beer... not too strong a flavor and not totally overwhelmed by its carbonation. Pours a nice head but kind of formal-looking.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2008 Extremely indulgent beer, but almost a little too indulgent. If it weren’t for the price and this beers ability to remind you what alcohol is, I could drink it all day. I know, I’m not very descriptive of the beer itself but I’ll never forget it. Isn’t that what it’s all about? You should write your reviews about how you feel not the brew itself, unless it’s rare and extremely tasty.

Bottle. Trappist Glass. Dark crimson/brown ale poured with thin tan head. Aroma is profoundly sweet, fruity and malt comes through on this beer. Mouthfeel is really thick, but not syrupy. Pleasant beer that features notes of caramel, roasted malt, banana, apple cider, warming spices and alcohol. Very complex, fruity and overall Belgian ale. Very good.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Beer Bistro. Extremely complex and wonderful aroma. Can smell mango, pear, apples, a bit of strawberry even. Pours a cloudy brown with a thin head. Taste is very spicy at first taste, but the more you drink it, the most you are able to recognize and appreciate the more subtle flavours. Even 10-20 seconds after taking a sip, I am still picking up different flavours. Fantastic beer.
