"Although written records of brewing at Rochefort date to 1595, Rochefort 10 was developed in the late 1940s and early '50s. It appears on virtually every list of the world's finest beers. Dark brown color. Great strength balanced by a complexity of flavors and firm malt backbone. The bouquet covers a wide range: port wine, leather, apricots, oak, spices — a deeply intriguing beverage." —importer
"An authentic Trappist product, brewed at one of only seven Trappist breweries in the world, this is Rochefort's boldest and strongest offering. The bouquet is seductively rich, with dense aromas of roasted malt, brown bread, figs and barely-shriveled prunes, all accented by spicy notes of cigar box, coriander, pepper and cocoa nib. The palate is round and lush, with a full, creamy texture that goes down remarkably smooth. The alcohol is balanced, and nowhere near as noticeable as it should be, with flavors of caramelized malt, overripe apricot, plum, brown sugar, peanut skin and just a hint of mocha that all carry through the long finish." —Lauren Buzzeo, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"Appearance: Dark, deep, rich rustic brown with a creamy tan tight lace, which is semi-sticky. Smell: Spicy alcohol, ripe fruit (raisin and plum) and sweet ripe tropical melon aromas.

Taste: Upfront is an immediate prickly alcohol that rides upon a layer of tingly carbonation, making it smooth. Alcohol is extremely warming on the palate, throat, and face. The malt is big, sweet, and fruity, like ripe plum that melds with a spiciness that brings English Christmas Pudding drizzled with rum to mind. Some spicy pepper notes (from the yeast), some sweet sugary peppermint, almost medicinal to a certain point. Did we mention that this beer is alcoholic?

Notes: Beer like this gives us a reason to live." —BeerAdvocate Magazine
