Sweet aroma, excellent belgian style beer. Slightly sugar sweet with fruit and slight alcohol flavor. Incredibly smooth finish. Easy to drink and yet full flavored and heavy.

Rochefort 10 pours dark brown with a red hue. The head is beige and frothy and sustains itself well for 11.3% ABV.
The nose is big and incrediby complex; it includes brown cane sugar, caramel, baked apple, pear, figs, blackcurrant, milk chocolate, biscuit, butterscotch, and bright bubblegum notes and even a hint of fruity ginjoko. The bouquet is not only as dark as you would expect, but is balanced with bright aromas at the same time. Incredible.
On the palate, the muted sugar counterbalance the heavy flavors up front, which include prunes, caramel, and dark bread crust, before the roastiness and bitterness from the hops invigorate the mid-palate. Peppery spiciness and warming alcohol conclude each mouthful with a dry finish, and leaves dark fruits and dark bread behind.
A deeply complex brew.

RCx240 (19) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Pours a rich, chocolaty brown with a vigorous beige head, which dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, toast, plum, licorice, and raisin. In terms of taste, there’s caramel, toast, plum, and chocolate, with a slightly bitter finish and the warming sensation you’d expect of a beer this strong. Full bodied, rich, creamy, and lively carbonation. very nice.

0,33 pullo@Kaisla Hki. Syvän ruskea, samea. Selkeä vaahto. Tuoksu kevyt maltainen, baarin keittiön rasvan haju sotkee oluen aromeja. Maku täyteläisen hedelmäinen, alkoholi tuntuu vahvasti.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Mjukt sammetslen skum. Smak av russin, farinsocker. Svårt att plocka in dofter och smaker men helt underbar.

Une bière d’exception qu’il faut absolument goûter une fois dans sa vie. elle est encore meilleur si vous la laissez vieillir 3 ou 4 ans avant de la boire

Know this one thanks to Fabio. pours a nice thin beige head. don’t serve to cold. yeasty on the bottom, so only pour in 10/11. briefly stir/swing the rest in the bottle and toast with your buddy to get the nicest power-yeasty start in your Rochefort adventure. let it breathe for a minute or two befor drinking. see the bubbles form circle like pictures in your Trappiste glas. tastes of rasins, caramel and also flowers. not too dry or bitter with a (initially) long (cool) finish. one of if not the best beer i’ve ever had.
