Reviewing the Rochefort 10. I have had the 10 fresh (1 year old) and aged 7 years.

On this particular night, I opened up Westvleteren 12 from 2007 alongside a Rochefort 10 2006 with my good friend Greg (BeerListMan) in Chicago.

Westvleteren 12 and Rochefort 10 aged are both super complex, but the Westvleteren 12 won due to it's smooth drinkability. There was absolutely no trace of alcohol and everything was so well balanced in the drink. Rochefort 10 still had some 'power' in it and it was extremely tasty and drinkable but the flavors were a little bit more unbalanced. The date, raisin, plum flavors in the Westvleteren 12 were more pronounced while I tasted more bready characteristics (almost like drinking rye) in the Rochefort.

The only difference is that I enjoyed the heavier, syrupy mouthfeel of the Rochefort 10 over the slightly lighter bodied Westvleteren 12.

A good way to describe this would be to drink a Highland Park 18 year scotch alongside a similar type of scotch with 15 years.. The 18 year will rock your world due to its drinkability and smoothness and the Westvleteren 12 did the same thing against the Rochefort 10. That being said, I would still age my Rochefort 10s because of its availability in the US.
