I took this following the day I had my Rochefort 8 so basically I conquered 3 Rocheforts in 3
separate nights. The Rochefort 10 is a Quadrupel which is highly acclaimed in the Beerdom and I
definitely agree that it is a great beer. The Rochefort 10 pours out brown black with a nice
thick head with pretty good retention. As with the 2 other Rocheforts, it looks great with a nice
smooth looking head. A strong smell emanates from the glass dropping a distinctive hint of rich
and unique fruitiness, a precursor to a truly complex fruity taste that is to be expected. Also
obvious in the smell is a certain tartness which further exemplifies the already promising smell.
The taste was big on fruits and indeed complex with many different kinds of fruit; naming a few,
I can sense apples, grapes, plums, dates, berries and other fresh smelling dark fruits. The taste
has a certain strength or character to balance up the entire feeling of the beer with a dash of
sweetness. The taste was also clearly mellow despite it being a very strong ale at 11.3 ABV; the
smoothness in the taste bears witness to masterful brewing which well masqueraded the alcoholic
strength. There is significant floral aromas blended with alcholic phenols on the nose and I
found that really pleasant; the slight bitterness in the finish did nothing to detract the
greatness from this beer. The body is sufficiently thick with a clear level of carbonation is
goes in really smooth boasting of great drinkability for an 11.3 ABV monster. The after taste
was another party for the pellates as all the complex fruitiness slowly converges to form a
citrusy, grape and plum like tastes which proves to be fairly lasting. The Rochefort 10 is truly
a great beer. Rocheforts are generally smooth, mellow, fruity beers with great appearance and
great in masking a strong ABV. The general improvement that could apply across the board for all
Rocheforts would be a thicker body and maybe a tad bit of sweetness more.

ever since reading about Trappist beers, I've always wanted to get my hands on one. being that I come from a long line of priests and a bishop, it made the style even more intriguing. I figured I would never find one, at least in my area. well, I took a trip to ocean city, MD and made a stop at Anthony's with the intent on finding a bottle of something new. sitting on the top self was a bottle of the Trappist beer 2nd on my list, don't think I will ever see a westvletern XII. I couldn't wait to get home and try it! I poured it into a silver goblet used by my grandfather (who was a bishop). all I can say about this beer is it is truly amazing....everything about it! definitely at the top of my list. there's beers out there on my favorites that are based a lot off of my personal drinking experience. For instance, erdinger because of the one I had in a small bar in Munich that opened my mind to German beers and even rolling rock (yeah, its a favorite) because it reminds me of my grandfather. however, this beer is my number one solely on taste, can't imagine there's a better beer out there.
