Hauled this 2009 bottle back from Bruges, Belgium. Pours dark brown in my glass with some purple showing in the edges where the light comes through. Small off white head that disappears pretty quickly. Aroma of dark fruits, figs, plums, light molasses and even chocolate, candi sugar. Flavor is sweet plums and figs, molasses, brown sugar, light chocolateyness, and a smooth nuttiness from the barrel. Age showing a bit here with some oxidization going on. Thick body, low plus carbonation, really rich and palate coating. Nice beer but would like to try one a bit fresher as this wasn't nearly the level of Reserva or even the regular version. Still yummy though, which speaks to how good those are.

11oz bottle poured into oversized snifter

A: Solid head that disappeared almost immediately dark murky brown does not cling to the glass at all

S: Banana, cloves, figs, plums, some alcohol, smells almost musty like a lot of quads

T: very soft almost sherry like taste with some very heavy banana, plum, alcohol tastes surprised about the alcohol taste, nice and sweet on the tongue with maybe some tobacco on the finish

M: a little clingy on the tongue but doesn't coat, I thought this would be heavier very sugary tasting

O: I had an 08 Grand Reserva and was blown away, while this is good I think Rochefort 10 is better it's odd what one single year would do to the taste. this is a good quad but I was a little surprised with the light harshness of alcohol. Overall a very pleasant quad

11.2 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter

A: I forgot about the sediment (I don't usually drink beers this old), so there is some sediment/yeast at the bottom of my glass, but you can't see it unless you know to hold the glass up. It is a very dark brown that comes across as pitch black. Almost no head, but a nice mocha collar in its place.
S: Toffee, Artisan Biscotti, Spiced Fruit Cakes and some nutmeg.
T: Delicious and with lots of dried fig and toffee. A great quad and all the flavors that come with it. Nuanced and full.
M: Smooth with just a tingle of gentle carbonation that comes on in a gently, breaking wave against the shore.
O: A beer to be had on special occasions but mainly for winter and on snowy nights.
