One of my favorite beers! Dark color with minimal head. Taste of dark fruits. Really good!

Purchased from Brasserie de Rochefort Sept 14, 2014

A: The same huge foam head as the 6 and the 8 but with a slightly darker hue, tan or khaki color. Slightly less retention then its smaller brothers, it sustained for about a minute before falling. The beer is also darker with more woody brown and dark red. Almost opaque in appearance.

S: Sweetness is apparent in the nose and still on par with the other Rochefort beers but again – more evolved. Dark apples, cherries, plumes and raisins from the malt. Spicy hop aroma is mild and takes a backseat to the sweet malt. Esters are very low.. the spice might even be from the yeast.

T: The hop presence is much more noticeable in 10. Still spicy and noble but with more powerful bitterness that clings on to the end. Malt is also amped up in this version with the mallard type flavors coming through with bread crust and toast. Plumes, prunes and blackberries come to mind as I sip the beer as it warms. Not as much of the apple and berry as in the nose. Also getting some slight tobacco and cocoa flavors.

M: Carbonation is high with moderately large body. Alcohol warmth is moderate, there’s no drinking this one quickly.. Slightly harshness on the tongue, maybe from the hops used? But mostly in the finish.

O: The malt profile of the beer reminds me of a barley wine, lots of plums/prunes/raisins with complexity for days, significant alcohol and sweetness to boot.

Out of the three Rochfort efforts I’m going to have to say 8 is my favorite followed by 10 then 6. I felt like 8 had a great balance of aroma / flavor and strength to carry this type of beer. The beer itself isn’t exactly my style, but when on a pilgrimage to some of the world’s most legendary breweries, you going to find some of them are more legend than anything else.

maybe i just had a bad/old bottle, but this was entirely too boozy to be very enjoyable. tasted like rum. i certainly want to revisit, as it had been a while since i had one, and this is not how i remembered it tasting. so take this review with a grain of salt.

The appearance is a solid brown with a very faint reddish hue to it. The head is big, bold, and tan.

The smell is very sweet and complex. It has a very strong fruit character to it, but malt and alcohol are also present.

The taste is very potent. There's a sweet maltiness up front followed by dried fruit: raisins, dates, fig. The alcohol is definitely detectable, but its masked very well. The strength and sweetness of it make it a sipping beer. The prominence of the different flavors shifts as it warms. The warmer it gets the more they seem to blend together.

It's a very smooth beer and the strong carbonation it has makes it quite smooth as well. There's a bit of a warming sensation on the tongue from the alcohol, but with no sting of booziness.

Overall it is an exceptionally well balanced beer, and truly surprising that it has such a high ABV. The particular fruit notes do not fit my personal taste, but it is undeniable the it is an artfully crafted beverage.
