Trappiste de Rochefort are top-fermented, bottle-conditioned beers, brewed within the Saint-R?my Abbey in Rochefort, Belgium.

Interestingly, this beer was originally only brewed for New Year's Eve. Fortunately, this Trappist strong-dark ale from Rochefort is now available year-round! And good thing too: its rich maltiness, brown sugar, dried fruits, is not one to miss. While this beer tastes rather sweet at the beginning, some spicy notes, high carbonation, and a semi-dry finish help to balance it out. Aromas of dried fruits, caramel, spice, and a warming alcohol just add to its elegance and richness.

Rochefort Brewery is a Belgian Trappist brewery and has been brewing beer at the monastery since 1595--to this day using water that is drawn from a well within the monastery itself. In order to be a certified Trappist brewery it must meet the requirements that excess profits, beyond the monastery's operating expenses, are to be used for charitable endeavours.

Fantastic strong beer
Review by
I really enjoyed drinking this beer, once it was gone I really wished I had purchased more.
Best beer
Review by
Easily the best beer from the Trappist Rochefort range and would say probably my new favourite beer along with westmalle tripel and Kasteel donker. Quality well balanced flavours, top aroma, and just the right amount of alcohol for my taste. Rochefort 10 was amazing but near the end of a bottle it can get abit strong if you don’t slowly sip at it.

For the % this beer tastes pretty good! Bit strong for me to drink more than one though so wouldn't order again. Got a bit to much my the end of the glass

Nice Beer
Review by
A nice dark beer, very similar to the 10 but just not as strong so you can enjoy more!
Great beer
Review by
Great beer, not as good as the 10 but great
Review by
All the Rochefort beers our fantastic, the 10 has a fraction more greatness, but still a superhero of the beer world
One of the greatest beers in the world
Review by
This is my favourite beer.

Dark, nutty, full bodied, flavourful, sipping heaven.

Not one to be glugged and perfect for a night in front of fire on a winters day.

It is the Goldielocks 'just right' the 6 is not flavoursome enough and the 10 knocks your head off.

Buy now, by the case if you can....
Dark and mysterious
Review by
The Rochefort beers are amongst the best in the world with their rich fruity and spicy flavours. If you are not sure which to drink take the middle road and go for the 8.
For Winter and beyond
Review by
All three Rochefort beers are exceptional. The number 8 with it's dark fruity flavours is a great winter drink but too good not to enjoy all the year round.
