  • Rochefort Trappistes 10

    Aroma: 9 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 8

    Bought 4 bottles of this brew after seeing all the hype. After losing a bottle to an accident (please don't ask...) i opened one right at the proper temp as recommended (12C). Poured with a thin brownish head in a chalice glass (I used a Leffe glass) Color is deep brown, pretty opaque, smells of caramel, raisins with some earth tones. Very interesting. Mouthfeel is very strong. Presence of alcohol is very present (at 11.3%, it was kind of expected) but not completely overwhelming. However, a bit too strong for my taste. Taste of caramel and malt are present, undertones of caramel and honey. Definitely yeasty. I had a pretty large yeast deposit at the bottom of my glass. Overall, i would say that it is an excellent beer... but for my taste, the 8 had better mouthfeel with most of the same taste present. It is a must try nonetheless,

    Hazy yellow color, very white and thick head. Aromas of hops, citrus. Very sharp and refreshing taste. Not too bitter. An excellent beer. One of the "must haves". I never leave the store without at least a few of these.

    Cloudy dark copper red robe, nice tan and dense head. Strong bitterness although not overwhelming. Long finish. Very carbonated. Absolutely a must try. One of the top beers evaluated here. Not the absolute best beer for me but a strong contender nonetheless.
