Holy moly...pours a rich mahogany color with a light tan head that is super thick with very fine bubbles that don't seem to be leaving anytime soon. The smell is of sweet candy malts, biscuits, wood and maybe slight citrus fruits (like orange peel?) and small berries and grapes....wonderful. The taste is near perfect...when I reviewed the 8 I had said that brewers strive to achieve the 8's quality...well, the 8 has been outdone by the 10. It is almost too perfect and too well done to put into words. What I can say, though, is that it taste of candied sugar, bread, wood, malt and very earthy with hardly any signs of the high ABV. It is silky yet light in your mouth and is extremely full bodied.
Geez...I'm still in awe of this beer...from now on when I purchase the Rocheforts, it will be the 10 an nothing else..this beer is godly.

4.35/5 rDev -3.5%

Pours an opaque deep brown with caramel highlights and more beige, dense, creamy head than body. Thick sheets of lacing line the glass walls. The head lingers and is so dense, it climbs above the rim.
Prunes, raisins, figs, bruised apple and burnt sugar form the initial aroma. Gives the impression of a rum-soaked fruitcake. Notes of cola add complexity.
Flavor is intensely sweet and bready, with prunes, pear, banana, and raisins underlying. Toasted, caramelly malt forms the backbone, but the dark fruit character dominates. The finish is slightly dry and boozy.
Body is on the full side, with low carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.
Very complex, estery character, with enough alcohol to warm the belly, but not detract from the experience. Truly a beauty of a beer.
