Trappistes Rochefort 10

trappistes-rochefort-10

Trappistes Rochefort 10 is both a certified authentic Trappist ale, and an fine example of a big Belgian Quad. At 11.3% ABV this beer is potent enough to be cellar-able, and the rich, blended flavors lead me to believe that it already has a bit of age on it. The nose is yeasty, sour with fruity notes. The middle is heavy, and thick with sweet cherries, oak, and vanilla. The finish is spicy, with a hint of booze and another of banana. This is a fine, well executed example of the Belgian Quad style and a excellent late evening drink that would pair wonderfully with dessert or a cigar.

I give it a 4.7 out of 5.
