330ml bottle, bottling code 171116, which means bottled 17th november 2011
A- Near black in colour, but you still can definitely notice that there's some murkyness about it. Some reddish hints showing up if seen through light. Quite big, dense off-white head that shows great retention throughout the last sips, while still leaving some nice amounts of lacing
S- Pretty strong on the yeast side, with some kind of a sweet, sugary, earthy feel. Dark bready malts, slight roasted hint. Pretty strong dark fruit notes showing up. Also has a slight barleywine-like feel: delicate, warming booze; liqueur-like chocolate and liquorice notes. Great, and amazingly persistent
T- Strong malty character, a slight roasted hint along with notes of bark bread, caramel, maybe chocolate. Caramel is sure the most distinct note, with sugary sweetness probably having a role in this. Indeed, the beer also has a pretty strong, yeasty-earthy feel, that always remains on the sweet side. A slight, fresh herbal feel brings balance to an otherwise cloyingly sweet feel, as well as a slight hint of refreshing bitterness in the aftertaste. Lots of dark fruit notes on the back of things, as to be expected: berries, raisin, plum. Maybe some hints of liquorice too. And is what is most amazing, all perfectly balanced
M- Pretty dense in body, but still nicely smooth on both tongue and palate, with just the right amount of carbonation to bring a bit of life. Flavours are able to fully spreads on your mouth for seconds. Still remains a bit heavy on the stomach, but that is almost impossible to avoid in a dark, 11.3%ABV beer
O- Liked Rochefort 8 a bit more. Rochefort 10 may have a slightly bolder feel in terms of flavours, but the 8 still presents the same amazing complexity and subtlety, while providing even more balance and drinkabilty. Not that i mean to say that this one is not nicely drinkable or balanced, just that the 8 is even better than this one awesome beer

Beervana. Have been looking for this for several months when I finally found it and snatched it up. Chilled it to about 60°, then poured into a tulip glass. Appearance dark brown with a bit of reddish hue, half inch of fine small bubbled head, and good lacing. Some yeast sediment which aided in dispersing carbonation. Smell is amazing. Great Belgian yeast Aroma, brown bread, dark cherries, and a hint of brown sugar. Taste is amazing. Complex, with dark fruits, cola, toasted brown bread, and grape nuts giving way to a tart cherry and dried plum, with a bit of alcohol heat, but not what you'd expect, considering the ABV. Finished sweet and rich, with a lingering raisin toast flavor that faded towards coffee and burnt sugar, in a good way. I believe that this is the best beer I have ever had, and I've had quite a few trippels and quads, but this is simply outstanding. Wish it was more readily available.

$3.65 bottle from the LCBO.
A - Ruby/Brown colour with nice two finger head of small bubbles.
S - Dates, caramel, port.
T - Caramel, molasses, Belgian yeast, dark fruit, and some sweetness. Very complex and absolutely delicious. For such a high alcohol content this beer does not taste 'boozy' at all. Incredible.
M - Rich and luxurious with great carbonation. Outstanding.
O - This is definitely one of my favourite beers of all-time. I love quads and this is one of, if not the best.
