4.38/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours out dark brown, almost purple-ish. Generous head gave way to a thin layer of bubbles
Smell: Generous bouquet of sweet caramel malts and candy sugar under a blanket of dark fruit (particularly raisins). Some sweet, juicy nectarines. A dash of spicy yeastiness. A touch of leather. All of it smelling quite "Belgian". Note: the high alcohol is surprisingly subdued in the aroma.
Taste: A well blended, outstanding example of a quadruppel. This beer features brown sugar, black cherries, anise, raisins, and toasted toffee malts. There's a great depth of varying flavors, so pay attention, but don't forget to savor. All of this gives way to a long-lived spicy, white pepper finish.
Mouthfeel: Strikingly smooth, very rich, and with a low, gentle amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: A+++ Power Beer. Would buy from again! As good as folks say, perhaps better. Especially for me, someone who's not overly partial to the style.
(Edit: After trying several beers within this style during a blind tasting on May 21st, 2007, Rochefort 10 was the unanimous, clear-cut winner.)
Serving type: bottle
