Brasserie de Rochefort Trappistes Rochefort 10

What the brewers say

“Dark brown color. Great strength balanced by a complexity of flavors and firm malt backbone. The bouquet covers a wide range: port wine, leather, apri- cots, oak, spices—a deeply intriguing beverage.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Complex malt on the nose, with white bread, toffee, and caramel malt sweetness, and fruity esters with hints of raisin, cherry, plum, and date. A hint of sherry, red wine, and port suggests aging.”

Flavor: “Nice mingling between caramel and toffee notes from the malt and raisin, plum, and date esters. Slight chocolate. High carbonation creates a bit of a bite. Alcohol is present but not hot. Finish is balanced, with just a hint of sweetness that lingers. Again, port and sherry highlights suggest aging.”

Overall: “Very tasty, rich, and complex with a sherry and port character not found in most others. Sweet but not overly sweet. An excellent example of the style that honestly appears aged (very gracefully). Malt and fruit character work very well together, and the balanced finish makes it a memorable and remarkable example of the style.”
