Bottle: Unfiltered In 1952, in order to place the modernisation of the brewery on the right commercial footing, much care was taken with the launch of Rochefort's two new beers. The refectory beer had been the basis for the development of the ‘Middel’ (also known as ‘Merveille’) which became the Rochefort 6. The 10, however, needed something else to elevate it: candy sugar, steeped in the wort in metal baskets, quite an innovation in those days. Furthermore, two malts were used in the brewing process: pils and caramel malt, as well as wheat starch, two varieties of hops and Rochefort’s own yeast. The result was the powerful Rochefort 10, a beer sure to warm your heart with its robust dose of alcohol.

Still a bit boozy, but really balanced and mellow

Bottle. Pours a deep golden mahogany with a big creamy beige head. Aromas of dried sweet fruits, dark sugar, chocolate and slight nuts. Roasted malty taste with sweet fruits and yeast. Slightly alcoholic. Very soft carbonation. Not really worth 4.3 in my opinion but Trappists isn’t my favorite type of beer - at all.

330 ml 2016 bottle. Murky dark brown, big fluffy foamy head. Calvados, cognac, caramel, marzipan, dark chocolate, heavy red wine, booze. Malty sweetness, dry bitterness. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonated, dry finish. Great.

330 mL bottle from Whole Foods, poured into a snifter. Very dark reddish brown, with complex aroma and taste. Caramel malt and licorice nose, dark fruit boozy taste and finish. Impressive.

Surprised to see I had never rated this. Consequently, I didn't make any notes. Bottle was a few years old and had lost a little of the usual floral/parma violets elements. Lots of dark fruit, very belgian, yeasty, thick and smooth. Yum. Another aged bottle, this time lots of treacle, caramel. Still great.

Aroma of yeast and hops. Yeast, chocolate, blackcurrant, coffee, alcohol and some roasted malt in the taste. Malty and syrupy with an intense long bittersweet finish. A classic! After several tastings on the terrace of Café de Engel in Oldenzaal, I'll stick to my rating. With every sample you discover more flavors and aroma's.
