330ml bottle at Chancey Smith's. I quaffed this beer over dessert with my girlfriend in celebration of our third year together. Pours a dark ruby brown with a creamy tan head that subsides to thin ring of fizz. Strands of lacing cling to the goblet. Smell and taste are a beautiful symmetry of vinous, port-like aromas, fruity Belgian yeast, blueberries, pie crust, plum, toffee candy, chocolate liqueur, currants, and an elegant, red grape sweetness with plenty of warmth going down. Mouthfeel is rich, full-bodied, syrupy, somewhat sugary (but not overly so), delicate spiciness, sticky and powdery dryness to finish. Soothing. About midway through I notice the copious amounts of sediment lingering at the bottom of my glass. Overall, Rochefort 10 is a gorgeous Trappist ale that compares to the best of them, including Westy 12. It's packed with complex flavours and literally glides across the tongue while drinking. Don't let the wider distribution fool you: this is a world class beer that's well worth the money. An exemplary quadrupel.

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.
