Dominant impressions of latte coffee with powerful chocolate aromas in the nose. The alcohol esters are enveloped with hints of autumn wood, citrus zest (orange, lemon) and freshly baked biscuits. The initial taste is sweetly sinful. Beer and chocolate trapped into one single glass, a liquid milky draught with a backbone of bitter malt. The alcohol warms the throat and, in the finish, you will pick up traces of cloves, citrus, orange and mocha.
The heaviest of the Rochefort beers, the 10 is a quadrupel style beer and can be recognized by its blue label.
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.
One of Rochefort's three offerings, all numerically named (6, 8, and 10) after their "Belgian degrees," a traditional means of measuring gravity (or the sweetness of the wort before fermentation) and determining the final strength of the beer. This is by far their strongest offering in terms of overall intensity and alcoholic strength. Sweet malt and bready yeast dominate the nose and mouth alongside notes of prune, fig and brandied pear laced with sweet cigar spice and a chocolate dusting. Full bodied and quite heavy on the palate with the alcohol present throughout, but the assertive profile has all of the components to make this a beer that will age beautifully and mellow with time. #7 Wine Enthusiasts Top 25 Beers of 2011
