look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours opaque brown with a thick cream colored head that dissipates to about a single finger. Nose of cinnamon, figs, dry spice, clove, prunes and a slight peppery hint. Taste is dark fruits, prunes, cloves, cinnamon, a bit of banana and alcohol. The body is medium and its smooth. There's some bubbly carbonation but its much smoother than the 8 (although the alcohol birn kind of negates that). This is supposed to be one of the best beers available (all the trappist ales are). And its damn good. These monks know what they're doing. Rochefort 8 is next (higher rated everywhere than the 10).

A : Dark brown. Poured with a lively half inch head that quickly disappeared. Looks like what I'd come to expect the style to look like, but nothing remarkable different.
S: New to trying put names to smells in beers, but I get some plum and what I'll call other dark fruit, and a breaded smell. Not an explosion of different smells to me, but enjoyable none the less.
T: Taste follows the nose without the bread, with the alcohol being the main addition. Smelled a little better than it tasted to me which I guess means the alcohol did not benefit the taste.
M: Bubbly effervescent as I'm accustomed to and enjoy with the style and enjoyable. Not experienced enough doing reviews to nail down why I know I prefer the Westy 12 mouthfeel to this.
O: A great example of the style, and a quality brew. Overall ranking likely impacted by this not being my favorite style of beer.
