Trappistes Rochefort 10

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.
