330ml bottle into Duvel tulip. Bottled February 2, 2011, drank February 17, 2012.

Appearance: Careful pour yields a 2 inch, fizzy offwhite head that dissipates steadily and leaves a single lacing arch. Pours a dark brown and occasionally leaves short lasting spots of lacing.

Smell: Red wine grapes and plum. Effervescent, with an undercurrent of fresh bread. Chocolate covered raisins, slight cola. Cherry and flowery aromas come out with time. That endless, constantly growing and developing aroma you want from a quad. Always complex, always balanced, always inviting.

Taste: Dark fruit, Belgian yeast, and dark candi sugar flavors. Moderately hot finish. Pastry like malt underneath, beautifully accentuated by the creamy mouthfeel.

In general, the flavor is like eating a light cake-y pastry covered in an amazing cherry, black currant, plum flavored jam. Leather and tobacco flavors reminiscent of some red wines coast on top of the hot aftertaste.

The flavor is as bountiful as the aroma, but bolder. There's uncountably many different notes, but everything marries beautifully. The overall impression is constant, tasting like darker red wine flavors, deep BSDA dark fruit, sweet cake pastries, Belgian yeast, and lively alcohol, with all of it being constantly elevated by the subtle complexities in each sip.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Soft and creamy. High carbonation that sometimes bothers me, but seems just right on this occasion (maybe 1 year is the best time to drink this beer, mouthfeel-wise, at least for my tastes).

Overall: Another beer that is widely regarded as a classic in virtue of it just being that damn good. I'll always remember the first time I tried it. The experience opened up my understanding of how exciting and delicious beer could be.

Every beer drinker should try at least one bottle of Trappistes Rochefort 10.
