It's about time I had a beer of this notoriety. Enjoyed one with the bro this evening. Very dark and pretty in the goblet with a thin head. Definitely slaps you in the face upon first whiff. Alcohol stood out the most. The taste was very complex from beginning to end. Very acidic and even sour in the beginning. About halfway into the glass, sweet fruitiness jumped out...plums especially. This is like one of those complicated movies which needs to be seen twice to get the whole picture. To be continued...

My bro bought me a bottle of this stuff as a late Christmas gift, along with some Westy-12 that will be consumed soon. Looking forward to drinking the #2 beer, it poured with a slight lacy head that was a bit smaller than expected. The aroma was a bit too strong almost, a bit overpowering, with sweet floral and perfume notes. Dark and nice looking, good color. At first it seemed a bit too sour and we were almost wondering if we had a bad bottle. But as the glass was drained on a perfect evening outside, the taste got better and better. Stunningly complex, hints of chocolate, plum, grapes, maybe a little pear? Quite nice, it definitely won't be my last!

'ZAP, ZING, PFLOT, ZOWIE' Batman, where this great beer been hiding, 'GUSLER' you 'FRIGGING CHUMP', yes 'CHIMAY' is great, but this beer 'Whips It's ARSE'. Deep, dark, and quite handsome is this beer!, head is beige, lace is decent, the nose is that of '5 Star' brandy, fruity, sweet. Start is heavenly sweet, the middle is relatively light, the finish is nicely hopped, strong alcohol, dry, high carbonation, acidic and 'Just one spectacular Brew' My retirement check from 'Uncle Sam's Army' just hit the bank, 'A CASE OR TWO OF ROCHFORT' is in my future, 'So says ' MISS CLEO</>'.

Rochefort 10 is one of the strongest ales I have ever had. Even though it has such a high acohol percentage it still drinks very smoothly. It has a very fruity taste to it and I don't find it as dry as Rochefort 8. It is the best of the Rocheforts. Should be drunk well above fridge temperature. Let it sit a bit after you take it out of the fridge. One of my favourite beers.

Deep brown color; Khaki colored head was thick to medium- not stellar retention; Nose was grapey, sweet and esthery. Good mouthfeel- lovely effervesence. Alcohol barely percepitble, but there. Some chocolate at the 1/2 mark. Raisans and anise. Incredible depth. Alcohol becomes noticeable at 3/4 mark. Oaky and earthy like whiskey.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2009 Dark brown, fine carbonation, huge brown head. Citrus and cherry nose with a light wooden note. Carries over and intesifies in the flavor. A hint smoke, orangepeel, caramel dark sugar. Very well balanced, does not get cloying and feels light on the palate. Light chocolate note retronasal. nom nom nom.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2004 Light brown, slighlty diminishing head. Dark copper brown appearance with lots of yeasties floating around. Sweet aroma, although weaker than I thought it would be. Very sweet flavor with hints of toffee, brown sugar. Estery. Absolutely delicious. Similar to the Westvleteren I had a few months ago. The two are almost indistinguishable to me. Alcohol lets its presence be known, but its very nicely masked for 11%+. Perfect on the palate. I guess I’m lucky in only having to pay $6.95 (US dollars) compared to what I see others have paid, but still expensive enough to only buy on special occasions (this was my birthday present from Me to Me, I need to do this more often..Valentines, labor day, groundhog day, kwanza, etc...)
