On-tap at 38 Degrees in Alhambra, 2012 version. On to the beer:
The base of 10 Commandments is a good Belgian Strong Dark Ale, but the twist here is there appears to be a potent spiciness to it, which to me tasted like ginger. Luckily, the base is strong enough to mitigate some of the spice and keep as an enjoyable beer to drink with a meal. Expect a profile of prunes, ginger, figs, and a kiss of liquor, with the addition of a dark bodied beer with good head retention, a fun smell, and a beer that's a little different flavor-wise per style.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance - dark brown with some carbonation and little to no lacing.
Smell - dark fruits, plum, fig, some chocolate. Reminds me of the smell of a Rochefort 10.
Taste - the dark fruits, figs and plums are predominate up front. Sweetens as it warms and has a boozy finish.
Mouthfeel - medium to high carbonation and full bodied.
Overall - a good beer up front. Lots of character and depth initially but does hold as it warms.

2012 vintage poured from a 750ml bottle into a chalice
A: Dark brown, opaque with a one-finger head that settles fairly quickly
S: Malty, sweet with the honey/raisin/rosemary notes mentioned on the label
T: Matches the nose. Very sweet, caramel/raisin/fig/honey notes, a bit boozey
M: Full-bodied, sweet/boozy as above
O: Not a huge fan of this. Full of flavor but off-balance with the amount of alcohol and sweetness. Perhaps fresher would help and I bought this at retail (albeit a trusted retailer) so I can't account for its entire storage history
