Served just under room temp and into a tulip glass. Was cloudy and dark in the glass with a large off-white head that stayed for about half of the glass. Malty smell, but not too much to the aroma. Taste was fruity and dry. Hints of apple and honey were present. There was a clean and foamy mouthfeel. This was a really enjoyable beer, but for $10 a single, I don't know if I'd buy it again.
A: mahogany in color and translucent, though dark, rochefort presents an impressive beige head with great retention.
S: bouquet is bold and extraordinarily complex, with notes of prunes, honey, caramel, just to name a few.
T: despite its strength, the alcohol is lost amidst the myriad flavors presented in this work of art. Caramelized sugar, prunes, honey, and a touch of coriander create an amazingly complex flavor profile.
M: full bodied and slightly syrupy, Rochefort 10 displays moderate carbonation.
D: after 4+ years, I decided it was overdue
that I revisit one of the most highly regarded ales in the world. I can easily say that it was a worthwhile effort. I'm not sure that in 2006, my first years in the beer world, I was able to truly appreciate the complex-yet-delicate nature of this outstanding ale. I stand with the masses and recommend this as one of the best brews available in the states.
