Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 7, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2008 One of the highest rated beers in the world and surprisingly easy to find. Even more surprising is that it lives up to the hype! Poors darker than the other 2, i would say a dark chocalate color with a hint of raisin purple. Tastes enjoyablly intense. Not over intense, but more intense than the other Trappistes. After the initial shock of taste/flavor/aroma, it goes down easy after a few tastes and sipes. Has the almost feel of a wine, with hints of it tasting that way also. Tastes like they put a lot into this one, very rich. Obviously a site favorite for the combination of ABV strength, but ability to hide the alcohol. My new favorites (6,8,&10) and would recommend to any beer drinker.

Pours a dark brown coloured beer with a creamy off-white head which leaves a lacing on the glass. The aroma is very fruity, with some scent of plums, raisins, grapes, and other dark fruits. Taste has a fruity, sweet character mixed with spices. Superbly well balanced and smooth long aftrertaste.

Willin8 (55) - Massapequa, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Gorgeous deep purple appearance with a large bubbly head. Nose of plums and grapes. Very bold flavoring of slight plum, slight raisin, slight grape - definitly can taste courant in there. Vast complexity. Alcohol is very well hidden. I’m actually quite impressed. Mouthfeel is dry but still smooth and a bit bubbly. Plum more predominant in the finish.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Deep dark color with thin white head. Deep caramel aroma. Flavors of dried fruits of raisin and dates. Smooth complex with good length without strong alcohol overtones. Superb beer.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2007
Bottle. Pours a deep, dark brown with a modereately sized beige head. Plums, currants, malt and alcohol possess the delicious aroma. Flavor is malts, darker fruits, yeast, honey, alcohol and some vinous qualities. This is a damm fine brew. So wonderfully balanced.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2007 For rating #400. Bottle. Pours dark chestnut/brown with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is a wonderful plethora of malts (toffee, chocolate, and sweet nuttiness) as well as dark fruits, strong on raisins and dates, wine-esque notes, and a bit of alcohol. Flavor is full of dark fruits (raisins, plums, figs), nicely balanced sweet malts, spicy yeast, oak, as well as some nice berry accompaniment. The alcohol didn’t seem as apparent as it is in the 8, although it is higher by volume. The mouthfeel is full, and perfectly carbonated to allow for accentuation of certain notes, without becoming too prickly or too syrupy. Revisited in a blind tasting with NachlamSie and tronraner: this one was the clear champion against St. Bernardus, and Allagash four.

Very complex flavors and perfectly balanced. To many flavors to even list...even some rasberry? I would definitely pick up another bottle when I see one.

The most complex beer I have ever tasted, hands down. My favorite beer style is the abbey double yet the Rochefort 10, a quadruple blows my favorite Dubbles away. Rochefort has an expertly balanced taste between hops and malt. It’s entrance is bold and its endnote leaves you never wanting to see the bottom of the glass.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2007
bottle. Deep ruby brown, with a thick tan head. Sweet and complex aroma - plum, root beer, dried fruit, red wine, and alcohol. flavor is just as complex; dried fruit, candi sugar, malt and alcohol. A bit heavy on the alcohol.Long chewy finish.
