In the 1950’s, fellow trappist brewery Chimay decided to help out the Rochefort Abbey to improve the quality and image of their beers. After the renewal of their beer soon to be known as Rochefort 6, Rochefort 10 was created in 1952 and was a revolutionary beer in that time. To make this beer as full-bodied and strong as it is, 2 different malts (pils and caramel), 2 hop varieties (Hallertau and Styrian Golding) and a lot of candy sugar are used. It all results in a majestic beer with a whopping 11.3% alcohol content. In fact, this beer contains so many nutrients that it partly sustained the monks in their strict diet that denied them among others, food like fish and cheese. Rochefort 10 is a deeply intriguing trappist beer with a very fruity (figs, dark cherries) character and touches of caramel and dark chocolate. Warm, full-bodied, rich, intense; these are only a few words to describe the “blue” Rochefort, nicknamed after the color of its bottle cap. This dark brown beer perfectly balances great strength with a complexity of flavors. Some connoisseurs compare Rochefort 10 with whiskey and port. The “10” in the name refers to an old system used by the Belgian abbey breweries to measure the amount of sugar in an unfermented beer. 6 Belgian degrees indicate a specific gravity of 1080 or 20 degrees Plato.
