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.

ippopotamo36 (543) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 18, 2015
0,33 bottle 2 years old purchased in Skopje (RIP Beershop Macedonia) and consumed in Kosovo. Pours a very dark brown, mahogany with a medium ivory head which stays floating on the surface after having lowered. Nose: macerated cherries, red fruit, fresh black figs. So nice! Mouth: aging a couple of years has not helped that much carbonation getting flat but still it has improved it. Same complexity and consistency of a Porto wine which actually this beer recalls. Dates, dry fruit, again macerated cherries under spirit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tekstr1der (101) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 15, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2015 Pours hazy brown with a finger of dense, creamy head. Yeasty esters, bread, and lightly caramelized sugar take the nose.Tastes of bread, almost no alcohol (truly remarkable at over 11+%), and a slight sweetness make this the finest example of the style. This is the best brew in what’s also my favourite style, and thus is the best beer I’ve ever experienced.

The richness in flavor is amazing, like a big slice of brown bread with a black current and apple molasses. Too bad it’s not a great looking beer, otherwise this is the king of Trappist for me, next to Orval. Bottle from De Zwart in Wilnis.

Butelka, warka do 06.11.2018. Ladna piana, stosunkowo powoli opadajaca, brudzaca szklo. W Tulipie Duval’a (z tym... jak one tam sie zwa... no, grawerem na dnie ktory wyzwala babelki) piana jest obecna caly czas w trakcie picie, do samego konca, chocby i pol godziny. i to polcentymetrowa warstwa. Samo piwo ciemne, czerwonawe w odcieniu. Aromaty bardzo bogate - rodzynki i nne suszone owoce (figi? daktyle? cos w ten desen), swieze, ciemne owoce (sliwki, wisnie ale tez banany), przyprawowosc lekka (gozdzik? i niestety kolendra), troszke zbozowo chlebowych, troszke drozdzy, nieco karmelu... i pewnie jeszcze kilka rzeczy ktorych nie potrafie wylowic. W smaku tez taka pieknie ulozona kompozycja, z przewaga gorzko-slodkich posmakow. Wysycenie spore, odczuwalne na jezyku. Tekstura nieco lepka. Alkohol doskonale ukryty. SUPER piwo, ale zarazem taki nieco Adas Miauczynski - zawsze drugi... bo mi bardziej pasuje Trappistes Rochefort 8 z tego browaru... i quadrupel z la trappe z tego stylu.. obydwa o wlos, o kolendrowy wlos.

Deep chestnut brown with high and dense tan head that doesn’t entirely block the aromas of autumn: toffee, raisins, leaves, black bread. In the glass, there is also a light sourness like dried lemon, figs, cinnamon and caramel, wisps of chocolate, coffee and grapes. There’s a touch of gingery heat, but the high alcohol stays in the background. It’s a wonderfully complex and well-structured drink, so give it time to open up. We can quibble over whether Rochefort 10 is the best beer in the world, or the second, or the seventh, but it’s in that sentence.

Bottle from systembolaget. Amazing trappist! The taste is filling the mouth with love! Not much more to say, but try it. If not for anything else, do it for the experience!

simardsam (168) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Brune, opaque, avec une mousse de couleur crème. Nez sucré, fruité (raisins) et épicé. Goût fortifié (alcool), sucré, torréfié, anissé et épicé... Un délice, une merveille... un moment incroyable pour les papilles!
