A dark, rich beer, almost opaque. Thick coffee colored head. Powerful aromas - brown sugar, perhaps licorice. The flavor is full - raisins, chocolate...it’s almost like drinking a fruitcake or some similar dessert. A nice warming effect reminds you of the alcohol content. Very unique experience.

DanielBrown (3697) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2004
Bottle from Stirchley Wines and Spirits, Birmingham. Deep currant black, with a massive beige head. Strong, rich aroma -blackcurrant jam and treacle. Flavour: some choc, coconut, berries. Warms the chest with heavy sweetness. Big, bushy flavour, with a sweet finish. Impressive, but not top of my tree.

The Rochfort 10, is this cowboy’s favorite beer. IT is dark, powerful, and very complex. I get some BING< and some currant in it. My soul comes to life when i sip this sweet nectar. i am transported into the depths of my imagination. I am upon an ancient beach watching the PIRATES AND THE MERCHANT SHIPS barter for MANSLAVES> I am in space, I am in heaven. I am everything i want to be when i drink this beer. invincible. Drinking his beer reminds me of an Emily dickinson poem...wHen i close my eyes all the world drops dead, when i lift my lids all is born again...........My fire is eternally burning.....

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 Dark brown with a long lasting medium tan head. Aroma is sweet of raisins, grapes and brown sugar. Vinous with some alcohol nose. Became sweet and more prunelike as it warmed. Flavor of dark fruits with a little bitter finish. Alcohol lends to the taste and warmth. You can tell this one is strong. Medium body maybe even a little thinner than expected. Re-Rare: Poured a very hazy very dark copper with a good bit of floaters. Aroma of old fruit, alcohol, estery. Flavor of alcohol, spicey and a bitter dry finish. Dull carbonation.

Spicy and "complete" tasting. Hard to define flavor. Fruity and a bit wavy tasting, but balanced somehow. I liked this quite a lot, and the vessel it came in was class in a glass.

Appearance is dark brown with tan head. Taste is a little nutty, with dark fruit flavors (fig). Also a coffee/chocolate hint. Definitely worth the price.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Bottle. Dark garnet pour with a thick beige head. Smells like fresh baked banana bread. Wow. Where to start. The taste is overwhelming. Thick and yeasty with a great sweet bite. Tastes faintly of brownies (bread and chocolate). Alcohol, medium malts, dried fruit, earthy notes, chocolate, molasses, and bubblegum come through. Finish is warm and nice. Some people say that this beer is overrated. They are wrong.
