What can I say that hasn’t allready been said? A true classic that has it all, aroma, appearance, flavor, a delight to drink.

Poured a dark murky brown color with a medium to small head.. Aroma is raisins, plums, figs and caramel.. Flavor follows suit with a heavy dark fruit flavor and some caramel and a light alcohol finish.. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation.

i have burried a bottle of this beer in the foundations of our new house as a charm(grigri) for luck and good life. Why would i do that if it wasn’t outstanding?

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2005 Dark Brown color like the bottle. Strong alcohol noticeable but well blended. This beer has volume and beautiful balance between Alcohol, Malts and yeast. Caramel tasting and since it is a newer bottle the alcohol is noticeable. All in all though I love this beer next to a Westvleteren 12. They are brothers in taste and style. Downtown Wine and Spirits in Somerville always has these in stock along with 6’s and 8’s. If someone told me I can only drink one type of beer the rest of my life, it would be Westvleteren 12s or Rochefort 10’s.

11.2 oz. bottle. pour was a muddy brown with some sediment and a big foamy tan head. aroma was of yeast, alcohol and some spice. flavors were a bit subdued. not anywhere near the complexity I was expecting. bottle said 061009 so I think it was a fresh one? I’ll have to try this again and re-rate. After all the rave reviews, I was disappointed.

What a wonderful follow-up to the Cave Creek’s Chili Beer!! This beer has a rich dark flavor. At first the taste can be a little overwhelming. Once my curiosity of what the many ingrediants were settled, I really enjoyed this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2006 Pours a very murky dark brown color. Aroma of belgian yeast, bannana, spice, alcohol, cherries. Flavor is alcohol, cherries, smooth, very nice. Still a little subdued for my taste.
