Rochefort 10 and Believable Privates

Flavius: I watched "Saving Private Ryan" but found the movie quite unbelievable.
Meterman: Critics felt this movie truthfully portrayed the gritty horror that is war.
F: I found it hard to believe that frontline soldiers had perfectly white teeth like Tom Hanks and Matt Damon.

Rochefort 10

Ratebeer 4.33 100th percentile
Beer Advocate A

Taste +5

The nose was oddly faint, but there were little amounts of dark sugar, licorice and herbs. The taste is hard to describe, WOW. Alcohol creeps out of the glass and burns your palate clean; clearing the canvas. Then your taste buds are bombarded with all flavours dark and sweet: black currants, brown sugar, licorice, raisins and plums. There was a tequila like sweetness you could pick out. Every sip gave you a new flavour.

Aftertaste +2

It was not really a coating, but a vapour trail of cassis and black berries.

Alcohol Content +1 11.3%

It was oddly drinkable for a 11% beer.
Value +1

I will always have fond memories of this beer.
Ingame Enhancement +1

This was the last beer of the Seattle session. A great ending to a great night of beer drinking.
Overall 10/10

This an outstanding and complex beer. If I could only drink one more beer, this would be it.
