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.

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.

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.

Aegrus (49) - USA - APR 21, 2007
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.

mannika (140) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 20, 2007
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.

Isadaddy (11) - tampa, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2007
While in Toronto at the Bier Market my server convinced me to try Rochfort 10. After a great buildup, she came back to tell me they were sold out and gave me the 8 instead, which I enjoyed as a followup to my meal. I later tried the 10 at home, and quite frankly, I thought the 8 was better. Similar appearance and fizziness (which isn’t that appealing), but the added alcohol of the 10 was not an improvement. Other similar beers like St. B 12 are a better choice.

alexanderj (3512) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 19, 2007
Bottle. Poured dark red-brown; large head. Aroma of dark fruit, bubbelgum, candy sugar; light hints of chocolate, malt and candy. Flavor was very similar; but more vinous and a strong alcohol presence. Some caramel malt and spice. Some mouth warming. A lot of complexity and a good mouthfeel, but the flavor was not amazing for me.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - APR 19, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of bubblegum, pit fruit, and candy. Flavor is pretty much the same, but the pit fruit is mellow and balanced. The initial mouthfeel is a little acidic, but the finish is sweet and smooth.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2008 I had my first Rochefort 10 a few weeks ago at The Brickstore in Atlanta, Georgia -- it was in the standard 11.2 ounce bottle with the tan label and a blue encircled "10." It poured a ruby red-brownish color, with some pronounced carbonation (at first) and a thick, off-white/tannish head. The lacing went straight down the glass, slowly, but a little more clear than expected -- most likely due to the alcohol. The aroma, as per my notes, was fruity with specific emphasis on rum, dates, raisins, prunes and some molasses. The mouthfeel was full, with enough alcohol to give it breathing room (but not overdone). The flavor... Wow! Chocolately, with some cognac and a little bit of spice! A slightly bitter finish with caramel and other sweetness. Overall, this is one of my favorite beers.
