The Rochefort Trappistes 10 is a Belgian masterpiece of a quadruple that rates 9th overall on RateBeer. A dark brown, hazy coloured beer with a thick aromas of dried fruit and roasted malt in a highly intriguing twist. The flavours that come through are on the sweeter side with notes of liquorice, dried fruit and plums. A high carbonation gives for a massive mouthfeel in every sip and truly shows off this beers perfect balance of flavours. A high alcohol content at 11.3% ABV allows for the warmth of the alcohol to shine while assisting the flavours to stand out as opposed to overpowering them. A truly magnificent beer that should be on every beer-enthusiast’s bucket-list!

In celebration of International Stout Day, today’s Rare & Limited beer is going to be a masterpiece of an Imperial Russian Stout.
Sitting at 10% ABV, the BrewDog Cocoa Psycho is slightly on the staunchier side and most certainly isn’t for the faint hearted. We recommend a drinking temperature of just above room temperature to truly bring out the depth of flavours this beer contains. A medium aroma of roasted dark malt and dusty chocolate leads to a complex whirl of flavours. Aged on cacao nibs, vanilla pods and toasted oak chips, the slightly sweet initial coffee notes shift towards dark chocolate and cocoa powder with a strong, bitter coffee finish. These flavours combined with a very soft mouthfeel and a low carbonation make this imperial stout an absolute pleasure to drink.
