COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Forget the pour and head and appearance. This product must be experienced if you even think that you are some kind of beer connoisseur. Imagine all the great buttery breads and candies and dark fruits in Europe. Put em together and imbibe. Truly something to behold. From Licorice and raisins to plums and walnut sweetbread. From Twizzlers and toasted nuts to bananas and apricot. The more you drink and think the more different combos and nuances you can come up with. A thing you must do. Wonderful and satisfying.

Een beoordeling van de Rochefort 10. Uitgeschonken in Rochefort bokaal. Wat 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, maar ook aardachtig en licht houtig. Verder licht zoetig, drop, chocolade en kruiden. Zeer complexe smaakbeleving! 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.

Pours deep cloudy brown with a thin beige head which dissipates quickly. Aroma of cherries, raisin and wine. Pleasantly carbonated and surprisingly subtle for a beer of this alcohol content. Crisp and rich with flavours of figs, plum, sweet cherry balanced with oak and cocoa. Superb Quad/BDSA.

Pours deep reddish-brown, less head and carbonation than #8. Smells of dark fruit of various ages - plum, raisin - and tastes of more ripe fruit with a hint of licorice. Sweet and bitter at the same time. Really awesome and likeable beer
