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.

Very dark brown. Hazy and plenty if sediment. Off white medium head. Aroma is as advertised. Plenty if dark fruit. Very raisiny. Lots of plum. No booziness to speak of. A little bit of roastiness too in the aroma. Flavors are very similar but the black currant starts to come through more. Very clean for a quad. Easy to drink but still very complex. ---Rated via iPhone

330ml bottle at home. Very good Belgian quad. Dark brown, strong dark fruits without a taste of alchohol despite it’s high percentage.

Wonderful aromas of caramel and chocolate in harmony with fruity tones. Sparkling, frothy foam when poured. Clear dark-brown liquid. Well balanced sweetness and bitterness - not even a slightly taste alcohol even though it is 11,3%. Fresh and not too heavy. At first it is sparkling in your mouth followed by a creamy texture, and a fresh, light sweet finish. I really love this beer - a perfect quadrupel, in my opinion better than Westvleteren 12.

À elle seule, la Rochefort 10 définit et impose le style. L’ennui avec une bière si pointue dans un style bien précis est que tout le reste est déception. Dégustée en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina, la bière brune aux reflets rouges qui est devant moi est coiffée d’une mousse à la fois imposante et légère comme de la ouate. Le liquide est majestueux, onctueux, duveteux. Magnifiquement appétissant! Je reçois de profonds arômes de fruits bien mûrs comme d’un immense plateau sur lequel sont présentés pruneaux, figues, dattes, raisins noirs et myrtilles. Quelques chose qui me rappelle également la pâtisserie. En bouche, une gorgée de ce nectar suffit à graver à jamais ce magnifique tableau dans ma mémoire. La rondeur est exquise, l’effervescence vivante et vivifiante, Je passe des fruits confits au chocolat, au caramel... La complexité, le moelleux et la profondeur de cette bière témoignent d’une maîtrise absolue du savoir brassicole. Je suis privilégié de déguster une telle bière!

From a 33cl bottle purchased at Les Fleurs du Malt in Lyon (Thanks Cyril!)A very dark hazy orange/brown with a beige head. Remarkable aromas of plum, blackcurrant and raisins. Incredibly rich and complex with a mouthfeel that makes every taste bud come alive. Very long finish with tastes of fruit, caramel and dark chocolate. A truly great rich-tasting beer with great balance, harmony and complexity.

Un nez très léger avec une odeur de fruits des bois, de caramel. Un palet extraordinaire avec une fin très prometteuse : une vraie bière noire avec une très belle couleur .

COlore rosso scuro, marrone, molta schiuma. Odore frutta matura, fichi secchi, alcool, caramello, leggero vinoso. Sapore fruttato, caramellato, leggero tostato, dolce ma tagliato bene dall’amaro finale. Frizzantezza medio-alta, alcool ben nascosto ma molto corposa.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2015 Bottle (expiry date - X 2020). Aroma: from the bottle:dark cholcolate, alcohol, quite roasty too. Appearance: black, cloudy (almost pure black colour) with minimal head. Taste: heavy bodied with heavy bitterness, dark belgian chocolate and fresh roasted coffee beans, alcohol is present as well. Reminds me a bit of belgian chocolates with strong acohol (kind of liquor) filling. Actually sweetness is less than medium. Full bodied. oily, with medium carbonation and long coffee-bitter finish. The best beer I’ve drank so far, I guess. I’m tippytoing more and more towards belgian styles. I like them.

Tariczny (73) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Hazy dark brown with red and ruby tones. Nice big head caused by carbonation I think. Great lacing.. Aroma: pharmacy, cloves, cinammon, resin and herbs/flowers. Taste: toffi, cloves, christmas gingerbread herbs, a bit of good quality mead and alcolic aftertaste with low bitterness and sweet gingerbread tones. Oily and quie full body. High carbonation. In mouth sense: It creates some kind of spicy alcolic aftertaste combined with hint of milk chocolate. Very intersting beer, quite nice for long winter evenings, it causes really nice heating feeling
