Best of the trappistes rocheforts. One must try this in their lifetime, even if their last meal. One of the best beers I have ever tasted. The specs: Mahagony cloaked by beautiful cream. Agree this is the ideal match for a steak. More so than wine. Drank it late evening - wonderful idea.It's kalula, pear and apple fruit, citrus, caramel all in a perfect yeasty combination. Alcohol rock. To savour.

Second tasting December 2004 and it met my desire again. (460 characters)

look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Pours a murky dark brown with a 2 inch beige head that fades to a film on the top of the beer. No lacing forms on the drink down. Smells of dark fruits, fermented raisins, spices, and yeast. There is a bit of a funky smell coming out of the glass too. Taste is very spicy and surprisingly funky. Lots of fermented dark fruits and super dark brown sugar. However, there is a definitely an off flavor here as I am tasting dirty gym socks. It's to degree where it's not very dominant but it's enough to be noticeable. The beer is pretty flat and combined with the taste it's a chore to even sip on this one. Overall, I need to get another bottle of this to rereview sometime because I think there is something wrong with this one. (727 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: three finger off white head with good retention. Muddy brown with orange-red hues.

S: dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar and some malt.

T: Lots of dark fruit up front with molasses, prune and hop bitterness notes. Finishes with a relatively strong alcohol flavoring.

M: thick body with a very oily finish. High carbonation.

Overall: I am not a fan of this genre but I will grade it based on how it is within its genre and not personal taste. I appreciate the fruitiness which is not overwhelming though the booz is a little strong. (537 characters)

A: It poured rather dark brown with a creamy beige head that took a very long time to settle down into a thin layer of bubbles. A moderate level of carbonation is visible, along with yeast particles floating near the bottom of the glass.
S: Alcohol is definitely perceptible in the nose, along with faint aromas of dark fruits and malty sweetness.
T: The taste is complex and very well balanced between flavors of malty sweetness, dark fruits and spices. A slight taste of alcohol is noticeable in the finish.
M: It feels both medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate.
D: For such a strong beer, it is relatively easy to drink, especially as it warms up. (657 characters)

G: 12-ounce Chimay goblet. Bottled on January 23, 2008.

A: Pours a thick, finger-and-a-half head that is cream colored and has a medium number of carbonation bubbles visible on top. The color is a very dark brown.

S: Dark sugars and fruits; mild alcohol.

T: Very sweet with fruity flavors on the initial sweep. A mild raisin flavor, filled with cream and perhaps a touch of caramel.

M: Smooth a creamy, eventually revealing slight alcohol warmth, which really hits the back of your throat on the swallow.

D: Quite good. Even with the additional alcohol feel, I think this is more drinkable than the Rochefort 8. (619 characters)

the best of the three by far in my opinion. pours mostly clear copper orange color with a very vibrant just off white head with pretty solid retention. kind of looks like oatmeal on top, thick and starchy. the nose is mildly spicy from the yeast, notes of dried fruit and molasses as well. the taste gives more hints about the fruit, apricots, cherries, and raisins come to mind for me. the yeast is less spicy than the nose indicates, but its still got some exciting peppery wild funk to it. the mouthfeel is quintessentialy belgian. a little sugary, super carbonated, and exciting on the tongue. the caramel malt notes last well through the finish, and my only regret is that i didnt buy a couple of these. the alcohol is totally invisible, impressive! a beer that only gets more eventful as it warms up. a really world class exemplary product. (846 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Pours out a cloudy iced tea brown color with a tan head that hangs around and leaves some lacing

Smell: A veritable basket of fruit - apples, pears, bananas combined with a bit of vanilla, milk chocolate, bubblegum and some balsa wood

Taste: A most unusual blend of smooth orchard fruit flavors, some wood and tobacco, and a touch of bubblegum for starters; about half way through, you pick up some bitterness and more tobacco flavors; the finish is dry with some alcoholic warming

Mouthfeel: Creamy and full-bodied; with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Extraordinarily smooth with so much going on (618 characters)

This beer poured out as a deep mahogany color with some red highlights in it. The head rises and falls rather quickly. The lacing a minimal but does have just a little that sticks to the glass. The smell is great in this beer, aromas of sweet dark fruits and some Belgian yeast. The taste is mostly the same but brings along a touch of spice in the finish. The mouthfeel is really nice, smooth, rich and creamy. Overall this beer is a gem. I'm looking very forward to having my next bottle. (490 characters)

Undoubtedly one of the best beers ever made. Such complexity, flavor, boldness, and so much togetherness; this beer ranks right there with the Westvleterns and St. Bernardus Abt. 12's of the world.

The murky brown liquid pours into the brandy snifter with a turbulant and froathy pour. An airy, lightly tanned head shows sprinkles of yeast and spices. The beer settles with a half-inch head and laced well as the beer magically disappeared. Despite the rusty and sediment rich pour, the beer has a nice appearance.

Cotton candy sweetness hits the nose with a lot of fruitiness, spiciness, and with a chocolatey, vineous hint that keeps my head spinning. The nose promises complexity immediately.

Malty richness of barley sugars, caramels, and toffee set the tone. Quickly a toasty, chocolatey flavor accompanies the malts and a rich concoction of sweetness begins to emerge. Fruitiness of berries, grapes, dates, figs, plumbs, and apples quickly give a balance and needed variety to the sweet malt taste. A light hint of barrel aged woods make a minor impact later with mild tang and mustiness on the mouth. A confectionate and complex reward to the tongue.

Initial powder-sugar textures develop quickly into a well-malted, well-rounded beverage. Full and suculant textures allow the acidic fruit notes and light hop bitterness to settle the beer and calm the sweetness. Finishes with a dry, well-attenuated, airy finish. For such sweetness, the beer leaves very little residual sweetness on the mouth.

Certainly a desert beer, but not one that relies soley on sweetness. The beer continues to develop with each successive sip and as the beer warms. Remarkably easy to drink seeing how malt dominant the beer shows. A magical beer that defies modern brewing logic. (1,769 characters)

Pourred a dark brew with a nice foamy white head with excellent retention time. Complex aroma of spice and roastiness arose from my glass. Taste of spice is complex and alcohol taste is subtle which is great achievement at 11.3%. Body if full and support well the mix of spice from this beer. Always great to review a trappist beer when they are so perfect as this one clearly is. The only thing I can compare this to is Chimay red. Wow!!! (439 characters)

My original review from 11-08-2006 is pretty embarrassing, so I'm re-ticking this one.

It pours a dark and turbid brown. Once in the glass it's completely opaque, topped by a light beige head that retains well.

This one smells great - rich toffee, caramelized figs, fruitcake, spices and a faint medicinal/botanical character that's very fitting.

Lush and velvety on the tongue, almost creamy, the mouthfeel is incredible. There's a lot of depth to the flavor, with an emphasis on rich caramelized malt, black licorice, dates, earthy figs, spiced cake. It drinks entirely too easy for a beer over 11% ABV, and there's barely a trace of heat. The finish is mild but lingering, spicy and semi-dry, almost vinous.

This is every bit as good to me now as it was 4 years ago, a true classic. (789 characters)

330ml bottle, a pleasant sight at a surprising number of liquor stores around town these days - nice.

This beer pours a dark chocolate-milk brown hue, with sediment reeling throughout, and two fingers of solid, yet airy beige head, which melts away at an even pace, leaving some low-slung mountain vista lace around the glass.

It smells of floral, spiced orchard fruit, lemongrass, a subtle graininess, and mild citrus vodka. The taste is big sweet candy sugar malt, a hint of yeasty rising bread, dark fleshy fruits, soused orange, Turkish delight, and mild earthy, leafy hops.

The carbonation is very laid back, rendering a cozily soft, creamy, and solid body, without allowing a drop-off into any sappy cloyingness. It finishes quite dry, with the floral candied fruit hanging on for good measure.

In all this sturm und drang, one is left to wonder - where went the heat? Like its little brother, the 8, you have to reflect somewhat in order to detect the alcohol beyond a slight general warming. Perceived drinkability will not equal actual end-game drinkability with this one, of that I am certain. Still, drink this, just because you damned well can. (1,163 characters)

2 year old bottle - 2006, served at 50º in a Westmalle chalice. BBD: 27 09 11

Bare skim of foam, ring around the edge. Deep mahoghany brown color. Banana, tobacco leaf, and spices in the aroma.

Very bready, spicy with rum, tobacco leaf, plum, and mild black forest cake sweetness. Deep earthy character as the glass warms up. Raisin and toffee, multi-faceted flavors. Feels robust yet smooth. One to sip and contemplate...

BBD: 24 01 12

Just arrived at my local shop, this is the "freshest" 10 i've experienced...

Pours into a wide-mouth goblet, displaying a deep mahoghany brown tone. Foam remains for a good length of time. Fits the part of a Belgian Quad in the looks department. Minor lacing laps against the edges of the glass.

Aroma is peppery, overripe banana, and mild spice. The combination reminds me of spoiled fruit. Not especially enticing.

Various flavors flash across the palate, at first the banana and pepper, mixed with clove. There is an earthy hop bitterness that follows any sweetness, which is only mildly perceptible. Alcohol is there, disguised as pepper. Not very nuanced though.

Mouthfeel is effervescent, carried by the subtle bubbles present. If not for this, a fresh Rochefort 10 would slide towards being way too boozy. The alcohol precludes it's sessionability...

An aged bottle is preferred for my tastes, and i'll rate one again in the future... (1,498 characters)

Autumn leaves russet with dark cherry and orange highlights when backlit with sunshine. The sandstone colored cap is attactive, but it isn't the masterpiece that I was expecting. Perhaps the ABV has something to do with that. A few streamers of sea foam lace grace the glass in the end.

The aroma tells me that 10 will be one of the darkest quads that I've ever had. It's full of dark fruit (raisins and figs) as well as a dark rum-like quality that gives it both power and presence. It's also peppery and clovey in a kick-ass yeast strain kind of way.

Trappistes Rochefort 10 is excellent beer, even if it doesn't crack my 'top 10 of all-time' list. The aroma didn't lie. This has to be one of the 'blackest' quadrupels going. In some ways it tastes like a Belgian stout... without quite getting all the way there.

I'm amazed at the beer's boldness relative to how well-integrated the various components of the flavor profile are. Proper aging is the key, I'm sure. For reference, the date on my bottle reads '19 05 09'. As I understand it, the date listed is five years from the time of bottling.

The flavor profile includes dark caramel, dark rum-soaked plums, raisins, molasses, anise and cloves. Maybe a dram of Islay Scotch as well, thanks to a certain smoky, phenolic vibe. A perfect taste score is not out of the question.

The slightly louder than expected 'pffft' on crown cracking was worrisome. Sure enough, the carbonation was slightly too vigorous early and is slightly too laid back late, passing through the perfect zone relatively quickly. Still good, just not great.

Trappistes Rochefort 10 is outstanding beer that is pretty close to as deep and as complex as they come. I didn't get that undefinable *magic* quality that I look for in the best of the best, but it's an amazingly libation all the same. It's also every bit the equal of Trappist Westvleteren 12. (1,885 characters)

I drank this beer to celebrate my first ever day as a teacher! I needed it!

A - Poured out a brownish/black with a one-finger head. It left great lacing.

S - It smelled of nuts, alcohol, yeast and grains.

T - The taste was dynamic...it had a spicy, heat to it. It tasted of yeast of grains, too. The alcohol really began to come through as it warmed.

M - It is crisp and medium-bodied.

D - A great Belgian beer. It was my first quadrupel and it was outstanding. I need to have this one around for other momentous occasions. (538 characters)

A - Poured a deep orange brown with an enourmous light tan head, requiring multiple pours to finish. Absolutly tons of carbonation, evident from streaming chains of bubbles. Awesome long retention reulted in significant lace. Looked awesome.

S - Smell was insanely fruity, and filled with tons of spice and delicate aromas. Biggest apparent were aaples, grapes, pears, and fig. Smell was otherwordly though, very very good.

M & T - Wow, I had to wince it was so strong. Alot of alcohol present in this one, became a bit of a distraction to all the flavors held inside. Once you got past that there was a huge flavor profile, lots of fruit and spice with a significant amount of bitter and sour notes on the back end of it. A slight hoppy dryness in the finish, but hardly noticeable.

D - Overall this is truly the defination of a huge beer. This was really a big sipper and I struggled my way through it. It was very good, and massivly complex, however just too strong, and hot with the alcohol to truly be enjoyed right now. (1,035 characters)

Poured into a Koningshoven goblet.

A: An opaque dark brown with a thin layer of white foam.

S: Chocolate, figs, sugar, raisins, and vanilla.

T: Chocolate, figs, and raisins with a nice sweet finish.

M: Good body, a bit of fizz, dry.

D: Wonderful beer. I'm not normally a big fan of Quads, but I am doing my best to try all of the Trappist ales, and this is one that has definitely lived up to the billing. (410 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours out dark brown, almost purple-ish. Generous head gave way to a thin layer of bubbles

Smell: Generous bouquet of sweet caramel malts and candy sugar under a blanket of dark fruit (particularly raisins). Some sweet, juicy nectarines. A dash of spicy yeastiness. A touch of leather. All of it smelling quite "Belgian". Note: the high alcohol is surprisingly subdued in the aroma.

Taste: A well blended, outstanding example of a quadruppel. This beer features brown sugar, black cherries, anise, raisins, and toasted toffee malts. There's a great depth of varying flavors, so pay attention, but don't forget to savor. All of this gives way to a long-lived spicy, white pepper finish.

Mouthfeel: Strikingly smooth, very rich, and with a low, gentle amount of carbonation.

Drinkability: A+++ Power Beer. Would buy from again! As good as folks say, perhaps better. Especially for me, someone who's not overly partial to the style.

(Edit: After trying several beers within this style during a blind tasting on May 21st, 2007, Rochefort 10 was the unanimous, clear-cut winner.) (1,092 characters)

**This was a 2.5 year old bottle from my cellar**

A - Dark brown with a large mocha head that has good staying power. Several minutes after pouring the head is still large, rocky, and creamy.

S - Dark, malty aroma of prunes and rasins. Alcohol notes, roastiness, and sublte, herbal hops.

T - Rich flavor of roasted malts and dark caramel. There is a distinct alcohol note and a fair amount of hop bitterness as well as some spicy yeasty overtones. The finish is full of wet, musty sherry notes boardering on cardboardy and a bit of a brothy, beefy yeast flavor. There are also some tobacco notes.

M - Moderately high carbonation. Slick medium body, relatively dry finish.

D - This beer is one to savor and share. The overall impression is of a heavy, flavorfull, cigar like beer. I was surprised that it retained so much carbonation after 2.5 years. It was starting to get a bit autolyzed, so I don't think I would age it any longer than this. (948 characters)

Served in a Chimay goblet.

Pours a nearly opaque dark walnut with almost a finger of ecru head that leaves a minimal amount of lacing behind. The smell is delightfully sweet, with notes of figs, chocolate, plums, vanilla, brown sugar, molasses, and wheat coming through and blending nicely. The taste follows, with the molasses, figs, vanilla, and brown sugar coming through strongest. At the surprisingly (but not overly) dry finish a final sugary sweetness pries its way forward, a fitting end. The body is medium, bordering on heavy, moves fizzily smoothly over the tongue, and does not sloggingly cover the mouth, allowing this brew to be highly sippable and enjoyable. (674 characters)

Poured from a bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy reddish dark amber. There is a half finger of off white head. Leaves a thin layer of head with a little lacing.

Smell: Quite sweet with strong dark fruit notes, I'm picking up some plum. Malty with a brown sugar smell, not a whole lot of spice from the yeast.

Taste: Reminds me of a barley wine, a very good barley wine. Lots of brown sugar and dark fruit. There is some smooth alcohol in the finish along with a very mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with mild carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

Overall: Also really good. Reminds me more of a barleywine than most quads I have tried, but I really loved it. Definitely will have this again. (720 characters)

Hazy with a huge rocky head over a reddish-brown body. The nose is quite impressive! Extremely fruity with notes of pears and bananas, as well as a big chunk of fresh bubblegum. The body is light/medium and it has a somewhat zesty mothfeel.The flavor is expansive with a silky, fruity maltiness that fills the mouth revealing a faintly milk-chocolate character just before a charge of hops coats the throat. The alcohol is noticeable but not obtrusive. The distinctively chocolatey flavor also comes through in a late, warming finish - accompanied by some vanilla, fruit and bready notes. An astonishingly complex beer that cannot be done justice with just words. (664 characters)

Best before 2018/01/23

Pours a big fizzy bubbly 1+ finger head into my goblet, fades pretty quickly though, lots of big bubbles popping, very little lacing left, super dark cocoa brown color with very little light sneaking through the thin parts, and plenty of chunkies on the bottom.

Nose is much more complex than I expected (even though I've had this before but it's been a long time), a nice caramelized brown sugar like with some candi sugar, very soft malt complexity, a nice soft brown malt like with the sweet characters, little toffee and caramel, but a really nice soft aged old ale malt like character. Then dark fruits, light raisin and fig, and a bit of candied plums, and a little creaminess with that. The toffee increases a bit and gets a little almost buttery biscuit like, with a touch of alcohol and phenols, there's a nice toasty brown malt in there, with toasted caramelized candi sugar all around.

Taste starts a ton complex too, lots of great malts, sweet characters, fruits, etc, all combined very nicely. I'll start with the malts for lack of any specific place, dark brown malts, little bit of a toasty brown malt, and a really nice soft aged malt like an old ale, with a little creamy character as well, and into some buttery biscuit, that quickly turns into the sweet characters, lots of toffee, some nice sugars too with a caramelized candi sugar, a pretty big candi sugar kick without too syrupy or even sweet, and a little molasses. Then into booze, a decent booze warmth and tingle but not quite 11.3% feel, bringing a bit of phenols as well, I can feel the booze warming the throat mostly. Fruits as there too, a little candied plum again, mild raisin and fig again as well, typical dark fruits. All that nice complexity somehow blended very well to a nice soft creamy delicious beer. Finish brings more warming booze, little tingle and warming the throat, a little sticky sweetness but surprisingly not so syrupy or sweet, little dry even, more candied dark fruits, lots more candi sugar, toasted brown malts and creamy dark malts.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, some warming tingly booze, and lots of carbonation, a bit too much on the carbonation.

Overall great! Pretty much a staple for Belgian quad style beer, and at the top of the top of beers in the world altogether, especially ones that I can regularly get. Perhaps the only real flaw is the over carbonation, that's probably due to extra fermenting in the bottle which added a bit of booze and phenols, but softened the beer a lot, plus the yeast chunkies. All around and amazing beer with great characters and great blending of all characters, smooth, rich, delicious! (2,665 characters)

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep brown color, with a large foamy beige head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of dark malts, dark fruit, Belgian yeast, some spice and a touch of hops.

T: The taste is malty up front with sweet flavors of dark fruits, caramel, brown sugar and chocolate. There's also a little bit of complementary tartness coming from the fruits. There's a good backbone of Belgian yeast. The hops presence is very mild and there's very little trace of the 11.30% ABV.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly sticky finish.

D: Tasty, goes down dangerously easily, not too filling, very strong kick, very good representation of style, I can appreciate the beer's complexity & craftsmanship and while it's a really good strong Belgian beer to drink for a whole night, I've had other Quads that I would pick first. (940 characters)
