Good beer. Not really my style but understand why people enjoy it. I think the smell is nice with that Belgian barnyard. Again I think this is a beer that should be consumed after sitting on it a couple of years. It is a waste of a beer if you open it fresh. Almost like a wine it is to young and tight fresh. I would by this beer if it was a everyday beer you can get at the store but I do not see my self ever trying to find it.

Again, more than enough reviews to get a feel for this beer, gonna review slightly differently:

Got the 6 and the 10 in my latest trip to Whole Foods, and tried both back-to-back, 6 first. Both are very smooth and drinkable. Both to me are malty in nature... there is just not much bitter hops pull in either. The 6 (Dubbel) has a little more bitterness, but that's to be expected as higher alcohol beers can tend towards more sweetness.

This beer pours dark amber-brown, and has more head than one might expect from a higher-octane offering. It also has a wine-raisin nose, pretty prevalent. As I take tastes, the nose stays prevalent, but the tongue get a bunch of fig versus the described nose. The alcohol is almost unnoticeable, as is any bitterness from the hops. The lingering taste remains sweet to me, I get toffee near the end at the back of the tongue.

I can see why this is rated so highly, very refined; counter that with not ranging the spectrum of tastes (pretty much stays on the sweeter side), but not lacking a certain complexity within the side of the spectrum it is on.

Served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful hazy brown with ridiculous bubbles on the body with a slight off-white head rising thick at first (just a notch over a finger's length) settling with perfect even lacing.

Smell: Has a slight hit of fruit and wine, real easy on the nostrils but very addicting...one sniff isn't enough.

Taste: A complex fruit infusion with a mellow tone of yeast. Comes off just notch sweet, almost grape like with a touch of brown sugar. It still does have a sight bitterness to it but not heavy in hops but more like a grapefruit mixture to go with it, absolutely well done.

Mouth: Very sticky, medium carbonation but super full bodied and the way it should be. You put this glass down and all you can think is how delish this brew is.

Overall: As many times as I've seen this on the shelf, big regret not picking it up any sooner...it is almost the total package but honestly for the eight bucks or so the bottle goes for it is worth every f'n penny. Salud!

Rochefort Trappistes 10 has a thin-to-medium, soapy, cream-colored head, a caramel-brown, bubbly, opaque appearance, with lots of brown chunks suspended throughout, and thin lacing left behind. The aroma is rich: very sweet malt, figs, dates, candi sugar, grain husk, and brandy wine. Taste is of those elements, with an overriding fruitcake note and a significant alcohol backing. Bitterness is low but present. Mouthfeel is heavy, cloying, brandy-like, and highly prickly. Rochefort Trappistes 10 finishes sweet, dry, rich, and boozy. Overall, this is a wonderful, world-class beer!
