This beer deserves every bit of the 99 rating that it has and more. One of my favorite beers of all time. This beer is great to age and by my opinion is best between 3 to 5 years. I have had the pleasure of enjoying many bottles of Roch 10, some as old as 10 years. Roch puts the date on the front of the bottle, five years ahead of the date it was bottled.

330ml bottle poured into Duvel tulip.

A: Looks great - very dark brown with a foamy 2 finger head that fizzes away to a creamy film of lace. Good lacing on the glass.

S: Malty sweetness, dark fruits, hints of chocolate and bubblegum or candy, yeast. Very complex and rich and inviting.

T: Matches the smell, or betters it. I got chocolate sweetness at the front, dark fruits or cherry in the middle, hints of nice maltiness, strong taste of caramel at the back. Nice sweet aftertaste. Also, it's not that you can taste alcohol exactly, but you can feel the size of the beer on the follow.

M: Very rich and smooth, quite creamy, full bodied for sure. Lightly fizzes on the tongue initially, and the beer produces a wonderful warming sensation that lingers. Incredible feel.

Overall: My new favourite beer, 100%. It lives up to its reputation for me, and then some. The smell and the taste are so beautifully complex that I can't wait to buy another one or two just to enjoy without reviewing. The mouthfeel too is something that's very important to me in a beer and this one is stellar. It carries the weight of the flavours and smells so well, and goes down much easier than an 11.3% ought to. I could big this one up for hours. Go try it, I strongly recommend it.

Poured from bottle into Chimay chalice glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown color with small hints of red within. The tan head formed upon pouring was quite abundant. It began by fading fast giving way to a head of about half a finger which lasted with some great persistence. After a long while the head faded giving way to an abundant amount of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is heavy of dark fruits; a huge cherry aroma, mixed with prune and raisin. There are also some nice yeasty aromas.

Taste – Sweet flavors for dark fruit first meet the tongue. They are of similar composition to what was detected in the nose; cherry, prune and raisin. Some yeasty flavors and malt flavors then begin to develop shortly after the initial sweet fruit flavors. These are followed by some more subtle lighter fruit tropical flavors of banana and citrus. At the very end some of the alcohol of this 11.3 % abv beer makes its presence known, and with the fruit flavors, leaves a warming sweet taste in the mouth.

Mouthfeel –The beer has a higher than average creaminess with a medium level of carbonation. The creaminess give the flavors a good chance to mingle on the tongue, but yet the carbonation matches the fruiter flavors well. While it is very good it is a little on the thin side for a beer of such strength and it makes it a bit too easy to drink.

Overall – This is a very good beer. It has wonderful dark fruit flavors and a nice warming kick. One to have every once in a while as a nice treat.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a fine tulip stout glass.

A-wow, this is a beauty. Dark mahogany brown color with a hint of reddish highlights. Opaque. There's a lot of carbonation in that dark room of a beer that sports a modest creamy brown head and minimal lacing.

S-like freshly bake cinnamon-raisin bagel or- dare I say- home-made babka, toasted and buttered. That covers malts, sweets, breads, and fruits. There is evidence of alcohol in the aroma.

T-Wake up taste buds because here it comes: an avalanche of the above mentioned bagel and babka flavors in liquid form. Raisins, dark fruit, strong malt; alcohols galore.

M-medium feel despite the alcohol content, not heavy or thin. It is a little fizzy on the tounge as well. Not AAL fizzy, tart and lively from carbonation that dances.

O-This is a great beer to finish up the evening after taking others brews. It's a 'one and done', but the 'one' is a '10'.
