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.

Rochefort Trappistes 10. Wow. Pours out a dark brown hue. The off white lacing had decent lacing but a little bit lower on the retention. The aromas was slightly roasted but more along the lines of dark fruits like plums. The flavor is where this on shines. It’s extremely complex. Definite malt flavor as well has a vanilla and caramel sweetness. Above those were the flavors of the dark fruits and floral undertones. You can taste the hops but it’s very balanced and works well with all the other notes. Great smooth body as well as creamy. Being an 11% abv beer you don’t get a hard alcohol hit. It’s well hidden under the rest of the beer. Amazing.

R4N5H (463) - SINGAPORE - NOV 29, 2015
33cl bottle in Amsterdam on 29-Nov-2015. Dark amber colour with a fluffy tan coloured head which dissipates slowly. Aroma of Belgian yeast, berries and malt. Medium body and soft carbonation. Intense flavour, with the ABV well hidden but still providing a lovely warmth when drinking. Chocolate up front, followed by berries, vanilla and molasses. A smooth and warm, slightly bitter finish. Excellent.

Bottle (11.2oz $6.50): Best before date 2020 five years from now. Need to have again to remember the details, but very enjoyable and will drink again.

Aus der Flasche in Lüttich. Glänzende dunkle Farbe und fester cremiger Schaum. Intensives Aroma nach Dörrobst, Vanille und Rum. Schwerer Geschmack. Extrem vollmundig. Großes Bier!

2013 bottle pour..produces a medium caramel brown color with a massive amount of particles that eventually float downward..pretty solid tan creamy head..nose is abundant with dark fruit..plums..raisins..currants..brown sugar...wow the mouthfeel on this is impressive..bold yet subdued..quite light bodied..can barely get any trace of the very high abv in play..creamy texture..long solid finish that is full of the dark fruit reminiscent of the style..excellent..

Franckg (654) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2015
Embouteillée 20/12/2014, bue après 11 mois. Robe d’un brun rougeâtre presque opaque surmonté d?un épais col de mousse blanchâtre et crémeux. Dentelle très collante et laiteuse. Arômes de malt à la fois grillé et caramélisé, baies confites, levures, pruneaux et sucre brun. Comme la 6 et 8, l’alcool ne paraît aucunement. C’est doux, sucré et d’une belle complexité. En bouche, c’est fidèle au nez mais encore mieux. Un amalgame de fruits foncés: mûres, cerises noires, pruneaux et raisins rouges, le tout saupoudré de sucre brun. Un bon fond malté qui s’affirme tout en douceur dans un style mielleux. Notes de chocolat au lait, noix de pecan et légère torréfaction. Une complexité monstre. Le tout dans une belle texture onctueuse et un corps bien rond. 11.2% d’alcool? La pureté des saveurs le cache habilement. Sans contredit une des meilleures trappistes.

Ffelipe (61) - BRAZIL - NOV 19, 2015
Aroma complexo, doce, levemente tostado, alcoólico e frutado. Sabor também complexo doce, amargo e alcoólico. O amargor não persiste o que torna a cada gole único. Incrível, a melhor que já degustei.
