GKillian (525) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Pours dark reddish brown to black with thick foamy tan head and lacing. Notes of raisins and vinegar. Taste is on the sweet side, like a dessert liqueuer, akin to treacle tart.

SinH4 (271) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Dark brown ale with medium head that goes down rather fast. Very rich complex aroma of plums, spices, candied sugar, more dark fruits. Taste is blackcurrant, spices, candied sugar, ripe banana peel, slightly astringent tartness, and with a huge spicy-peppery finish with a hint of banana peel and even grapefruit and a hint of bay leaf (or maybe just peppery). Still medium-bodied for this richness, but also heavy on alcohol, vinelike. Carbonation is very noticeable, but not too much yet. A fantastic beer and a true classic in the style, but a bit harder to drink than Bernardus due to its heaviness. I think Bernardus is a little bit more versatile.

realadam (81) - HUNGARY - DEC 24, 2014
Nice amber colored beer with fruity, bubblegum aroma and a brown long lasting head. You can feel a lot of alcohol in the taste which is quite bitter and also salty a bit. I know I am supposed to love it, but it’s just not my style.

Delicious strong and rich beer. Sweet, plums, caramel. But maybe a little to sweet for my taste...

dslam (69) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Poured from a 33 cl bottle. Very hazy brown with lots of sediment and off white head. Has a very good aftertaste. Almost no hint of alcohol. I could drink this all day!

Poured from 33cl bottle [29/01/2019]. Medium dark brown with beige head. Caramel, currant, plum, raisin. Medium body. Well balanced, but probably should’ve aged a bit.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2014 Een beoordeling van de Rochefort 10. Uitgeschonken in Rochefort bokaal. Een enigszins troebele, fraaie diep donkerbruine kleur, met een beige schuimkraag die na korte tijd weer inzakt. Een dunne schuimlaag blijft op het bier drijven. Geur: heel kenmerkend voor Rochefort, gedroogd fruit, en hout. De smaak van dit trappisten bier is een klasse apart. Een smaak van wederom gedroogd fruit, vijgen, en pruimen, geroosterde malt en kruiden, maar ook een beetje aardachtig en licht houtig. Verder licht zoetig, drop, en chocolade. Zeer complexe smaakbeleving! Het is erg bijzonder dat je in een bier zoveel verschillende lagen van smaak kunt proeven, hoewel het erg moeilijk is om de complexiteit van de Rochefort 10 te doorgronden. Werkelijk een van de beste trappisten bieren. De geur en smaak heeft iets mufs en ouds, maar dan uiteraard in zeer positieve zin, fantastisch! Ben benieuwd naar de smaak als je deze Rochefort 10 meerdere jaren bewaard. De afdronk is lang en zacht met licht bittere houtachtige smaak. Deze Rochefort 10 is het bewijs waarom België een fantastisch bierland is. Wel rustig degusteren dit bier met 11,3% alcohol, een echt geniet bier voor een winter avond.

A nice maple colored pour. Minimal head that is beige. Not overpowering. You can taste the plum and it tastes superb with anything sweet. A favorite of mine.

Quite enjoyed this one. Aroma of dark fruits, little Belgium yeast. Flavour of raisins and figs, pretty surprised on how the 11.3 ABV was disguised.
