The much heralded Rochefort 10. Perhaps no other beer in the world is so easy to obtain yet so exquisite.
Pours a dark midnight brown with a tall off white head leaving lacing all over the place. there is a good amount of yeast dregs floating around the glass. This is almost mouth watering.
The nose gives hints of sliced apples, leading into a earthy flavor that in my mind i always imagine as minerals, maybe from the water source as i notice this in a lot of Belgians. Other subtle fruits like fig and pear give a whisper but not as pronounced as some other quads. Some alcohol heat which i find very attractive and a welcome compliment to the other flavors.
There was a good crisp "psss" when i popped the cap, so i knew there would be nice carbination, and it was a prefect amount. A medium body compliments the flavors nicely.
This is a long time sipping beer, not because its too hot, or not easy to drink, but because it's the only way to properly do it justice. After finishing one of these, almost anything else you could grab would not seem appealing....unless it was a second Rochefort. Well done Monks.
