COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered In 1952, in order to place the modernisation of the brewery on the right commercial footing, much care was taken with the launch of Rochefort's two new beers. The refectory beer had been the basis for the development of the ‘Middel’ (also known as ‘Merveille’) which became the Rochefort 6. The 10, however, needed something else to elevate it: candy sugar, steeped in the wort in metal baskets, quite an innovation in those days. Furthermore, two malts were used in the brewing process: pils and caramel malt, as well as wheat starch, two varieties of hops and Rochefort’s own yeast. The result was the powerful Rochefort 10, a beer sure to warm your heart with its robust dose of alcohol.

DraftPupil66 (69) - - APR 1, 2021
UPDATED: APR 1, 2021 33cl bottle at home from an online store. Tried on 01/04/2021 BB 26/12/2023. Dark mahogany color with off-white, brownish smooth head. Very nice aroma, intense and rich with hints of alcohol, caramel, something herbal, and fruits. Great. The most perfect and complex taste among the Rochefort for me, not extremely different from the 6 and 8, but very rich and perfectly done. Taste is elegant, full and sweet with hints of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, yeast, prunes and dried fruit, somewhat winey. Good sparkling carbonation and very strong at 11.3% abv yet well hidden. More sweet than bitter but spicy and warm... absolutely incredible taste.

AlePupil43 (13) - - MAR 31, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2021 Dark brown opaque color with underwhelming head. Aroma is nutty, dark fruits, rich. Taste is intense with nutty notes and sundried apricots, generally dark fruits. Mouthfeel is great, quite intense carbonation. You don't taste the alcohol that much. I prefer the red version.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2021 Mahogany colour and nice head. Fruity aroma, complex and rich, the flavours keep coming after several seconds. Caramel, spices, cloves. Special beer.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2021 Bottle at home. Poured dark brown cream head. Bready banana malt grain notes. Strong.

thejackpacker (2060) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2021 Bottle from Systembolaget. I should really have been paying more attention whilst drinking this. But here goes. It was in many ways a classic quadrupel - interesting winey aroma and flavours; quite light on the palate for the percentage and girth. Didn't wow me but was lovely anyway.

DoctorHU (1562) - Transcarpathia, UKRAINE - MAR 1, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2021 330 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with beige creamy head. Aroma is lots of dark fruit. Full-bodied and increasingly rich flavour, but also immensely moreish. Perfectly balanced sweetness with light bitterness and even a little roasted malt too. The beer is perfectly balanced and the alcohol tickles the taste.

Gorgosh (683) - SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2021 Högt ställda förväntningar infrias redan innan ölet är i munnen. Aromen är tung av frukt, sirap och tobak. Luktar nästan som om det vore en buljong. Och ja...smaken är en mastodont av sötma, torkade frukter och lakrits.

wozap (1797) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - FEB 25, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2021 L.24.02.2021 330ml. Brązowe, klarowne, piana ecru, drobne bąble, wysoka, powoli redukuje do cienkiej tafli. Piwo ciągle pracuje w szkle. W aromacie suszone owoce, słodkie dojrzałe czerwone owoce, melasa, przypieczone ciasto. W ustach klasyczne dla belgijskich piw musowanie wynikające z wysokiego nagazowania. Piwo jest treściwe, w smaku całe mnóstwo suszonych słodkich owoców. Na planie drugim nieco pikantnych nut drożdży, mocno zaznaczonych również na długim finiszu. Przyprawowym, opiekanym, wytrawnym i rozgrzewającym. Z racji nagazowania dość szybko zaczyna dawać znać w głowie.

Grandrenard (36) - - FEB 21, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2021 Round malt and kandis. Very strong and clear taste of alcohol in beginning, but then full aromatic fresh with clear notes of dry fruit like raisin and a little plumb. One of the finest beers I have ever had. Reminds me of the Danish gambrinos dark only with a royal Belgian twist.

birreddy (24) - - FEB 20, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2021 Un po’ troppo dolce per i miei gusti e marcatamente alcolica, si sente molto il malto caramellato, dopo un po’ stanca
