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.

Dark Dark dark brpw wotj a very dense tan head. The nose is big and sweet and round with plenty of malt, raisins and prunes. Big ass creamy body with a rather thick texture. The alcohol seems to balance the malt here more than anything else, which is nice and liquor-like. Somewhat woody somewhat toasty aspect couples with the alcohol astringency to big balance and make this a dry beer with a slightly alcohol aftertaste, despite being so sweet. I loved this beer, but it was at the end of a heavy tasting session, so itís hard to make out my notes.. must try again!

starts with candy sugar flavors, fruity malt and finishes off with pleasing hop flavor then mild alcohol.

sampled this at Brugge Beejste. Even though I have had this in the US, it almost seemed of better quality over there. Very sweet, and highly alcoholic (my type of beer). I tasted raisens and plum flavors if that makes sense.Nice dark, almost purple black color, no doubt from the dark candy sugars. Ranks up there with the best.

Strong spicy aroma with plums and malts... pours dark brown with medium thick head, tastes of plums, malts and caramel with a sweet finish.. this beer has a nice silky texture and hides the alcohol really well

Bottle. Aroma is just about perfect. A great balance of heavy roasted, nutty and caramel notes for the malt, herbs and flowers for the hops and earth and broth for the yeast. Raisin, brown sugar and dark aged rum were also noted. The head is fizzy, off-white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is a murky brown with tiny bits a floatiní. Flavor is moderately sweet and lightly acidic to start and ends lightly sweet, moderately bitter and a touch salty in the long finish. The palate would be perfect except for slightly over carbonation and the heavy alcohol feel. Other than that, itís medium bodied and somewhere between oily and creamy. This would be a great accompaniment for a stewed game dish.

Great beer... #2 in the world, not sure if I agree. The Roch 10 had a smooth and sweeter flavor than most abbey ales--perhaps to hide the fact that itís 11.3% alcohol! Nonetheless, after the swallow, the palate was a delicious creamy, almost desserty flavor. Very complex and a good beer.

Pours Black with red hint could be described as mahogony. A nice long lasting head that leads to some lacing. An AMAZING aroma: Raisin, plum, prune, tofee, sweet malt, and a little alc it really doesnít get better than this. The flavor matches the aroma to a "T" (Iíve never tried to spell that before), with all those dark fruit flavors that were so apparent in the nose. Long lasting flavor that is sweet but balanced, light bodied but with a flavor to keep it from being dull. Alc is warming like a fine beer should. A definent treat, Iíve got to give to those monks.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 I enjoyed this beer but drank it right after the rochefort 8. I was alittle dissapointed. i was good but not great. 10 was, 8 wasnt in the top fifty.. i dont agree. This carmel colored beer is not a quenching as the rochefort 8, not as sweet either, but enjoyable none the less. a good but not great beer,I would pick a triple over a quad though..

330 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy peacan brown with a dense light tan head. Hints of fig, spices and a touch of pepper in the nose. Full head-on body with fruit and spice laying atop a slight alcohol burn. Lingering medium-dry to sweet finish.
