Decanted into a Rochefort goblet, the beer appears as a slightly hazy deep reddish brown color with deep crimson hues. A voluminous head emerges of a light sandy tan color that nearly spills over the rim of the goblet. An absolutely gorgeous beer in every way. The nose is an explosion of sweet tropical fruits (pear, banana, mango), some candy-like characteristics reminiscent of bubble gum and hard Christmas candy. Underpinning these notes, a solid caramelized malt base is evident. This is one of the most enjoyable beers to sniff you'll ever have the pleasure of enjoying, without a doubt. The palate is a myriad of complex flavors that wholly embody the essence of what a Belgian strong dark ale ought to be. Roasted coconut, spicy banana and pear, subtle floral hops, and a wonderfully rich, warm alcohol presence. Some rich chocolate-like flavors add to the incredible complexity of this beer. The mouth feel is no more than medium and not cloying in the least, even with the aggressive sweet candi and fruit elements. This beer contains a good amount of carbonation, leaving the finish clean and rather dry with some residual alcohol warmth lingering long. This is, without a single doubt, one of the finest beers I've ever sampled regardless of style or origin. This beer is the pinnacle of the Trappist brewer's art, in my opinion. Nearly perfect, the much sought-after Westvleteren 12 really has nothing on this beer. If you want to taste Trappist brewing perfection, you really can't do any better than the best of the Rochefort beers, and one of the best in the world, Rochefort 10.
