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.

Aroma if sweet, banana, dates. Dark dark brown, with a thin white head. The flavor has some banana, alcohol, currants, some spice. Very complex, flavor gets better with warmth.

An incredible beer with tremendous, complex, aromas and flavors. This beer is a world class brew, and one that any beer lover should seek out. Rochefort 10 pours to a murky, deep caramel color with tall, rocky, tan head, and a soft carbonation. The nose on this beer is complex and and aromatic with big aromas of sweet malt, raisin, plum, caramel, tanned leather, and peppery alcohol. The palate is lush and full with just layers of flavors. Sweet malt, raisin, plum, pipe tobacco, tanned leather, chocolate, candy sugar, coat the tongue and sooth. Rochefort 10 finishes with more of those big complex flavors, then ends with a warming, soothing, burn that lingers. Match this with a strong and sharp cheese course, or enjoy as an ultimate sipping brew.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2007 Dark with light brown head. Smell was of sweet fruit with an essence of plum. Very pleasant flavor of fruit and seemed diffrent in the fact that it wasn’t bitter as other trappist are. Update: Recently had a five year aged bottle. It was very nice I think the flavor and aroma of the fruit was more pronounced. The taste was strong but the alcohol tangy bite had changed to a moderate tingle. Still pleasant from start to finish!

Wow. Really complex beer. Cloudy brown body with a huge off white head. Aroma was slightly sweet with some yeast and some alcohol. Flavor is so complex its hard to describe. I tasted the raisin, plum, and black currant, plus some caramel sweetness, a bit of tanginess, and a slight alcohol burn. A wonderful, complex, well-made beer.

Just deliscious, it’s rochefort cheese features are great and the aroma is a little sweet, it is just a nice beer, better than the 8, and I’m not really into high alcohol percentage beers.

Strong in color and taste. The alcohol is strong but with all the different flavors going on it is not overpowering. I do get just a odd bit of salt.

Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Jul 2010). Raisins, bready malts, some chocolate, caramel and lots of alcohol. This was nice and richly balanced but two things prevented me from enjoying it more. Firstly the high alcohol presence and secondly the high carbonation level which seemed inappropriate in a beer of this strength and depth.

Poured a dark color and aromas were sweet and spicy. Flavor was sorta malty and a bit sweet but very nice. I really enjoyed this brew even though how strong it is.

Bottled. Pours a super deep brown color. A little sediment floating around. Sweet aroma. Caramel and sweet candy, along with some dark fruit. Slightly sweet malty flavor up front. Dark fruits and roasted malts. Maybe even a little chocolate. Slight alcohol burn.
