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.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a beautiful tan foamy head. Very complex. Strong dark fruit aroma. Touch of sweetness mixed with nut flavors. Excellent.

dcshupe (1) - USA - JAN 10, 2007 does not count
bottle was shaken and needed to settle a bit. but I couldn’t wait. the particulate was rather thick and dense against a light. But aroma was very nutty and delightful. nose of alcohol wore off pretty quickly and there was no sense of it on the tounge

Crazy expensive but this quad really does live up to it’s hype. Sweet and thick with an in your face alcohol presence [in a good way]. This is a special occasion beverage for sure.

Simply Outstanding! Tried this in Brussels and carried a few bottles back to the US with me. Dark color & full of flavor. A Must although very pricey stateside at about $7/btl.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 [Sampled summer 2005 at the outside fireplace with René.] Surprisingly less alcoholic in the "aroflavor" than the R8 with outbursts like "Irish Coffee". Personally I prefer mentioning "IC" as "It’s like a R10". One of my favourites always ready for beergeeks.

milewide (2059) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Dark brown color. Lots of fruit smell and taste. Medium body. Huge head. This is a top quality brew, but a bit sweet and lacking in hops for my taste. Alcohol well hidden.

This is how a Beligum trappiste should be. Very strong and tasty. Has a very malty taste which also leads to its very high alcohol content. Color is a nice dark amber whcih lets you know that it could have lots of flavor. This beer is at top of the list in my book.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle from Systembolaget. Pouring more praise on this heavenly beer is unnecessary. It truely is a complete beer in all senses with the best palate of any beer I have ever tasted. I’ve been lucky to try several bottles (one in particular that was five years old and would have warranted a perfect 5). The difference between that landmark beer moment and this particular bottle is that in my experience fresh Rochefort 10 has a more aggressive phenol quality to it that softens with age. The juicy figs and raisin notes also thicken with time, lending a heavier, more aggrandized character to this exeptional beer. I’ll re-rate a vintage bottle in a few years to see if I can reach a perfect 5 once again.
