I haven't tried the 10, but the Rochefort Trappist 8 was mighty tasty... Not quite as strong as the 10 at just over 9%, but still plenty high if ABV matters to you.

Nah, didn't buy it for the ABV, (never do). But I've been reading "Brew like a Monk" and trying the beers at my local bottle shop. It was usually hit or miss with Belgiums, but after reading the book I'm on a mission.

I got a whole case of it in fridge out in the garage. I prefer it to Blue as well. I have a case of Chimay Cinq Cents in the fridge as well. That's my favorite Chimay now days. I got burnt out on the Blue drinking it too much.

Yesterday I just noticed a receipt tucked into the case of Rochefort 10. It's dated February 5, 2009. It was sitting in my cellar untouched for 15 months before I moved from Belgium. The whole case is still intact untouched.

Well someone can only have one favorite Belgium because there is only one Belgium. As far as having a favorite BELGIAN, that's a whole different story!

Actually anyone who has spent any decent amount of time in Belgium can tell you there are 2 distinct and separate Belgiums, Walloonia and Flanders.
Heck for about six months while I lived there Belgium had no official government because one portion of the country refused to accept the government elected by the majority of the other part of the county.

Me personally, I prefer the Flanders Belgium after spending 3 years living in Walloonia.

I'm reading it as well and finding myself dreaming about picking up more bottles at the local store.

Bottling the Belgian: A Photo Odyssey

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I have a buddy who lives in Mons, he loves it there but I have to say the people in Walloonia can be hit or miss.

Yeah that's where I just moved from. Is your buddy military? Unfortunately the majority of people I encountered in Mons are prejudiced against outsiders due to the large NATO presence but the people in the outlying towns are much friendlier and accommodating.
