Live review. Poured into the Rochefort chalice, it is quite a sight. Typical brown quad body, some floaties from the yeast pour. I like the dregs, you may want to be more careful.
In the nose, cinnamon bread, lots of raisin and cinnamon. Smells a lot like the beer bread I bake, actually. More cinnamon-y than I would have thought.
Ooooh, big luxurious malt bomb. Lot of sweetness up front, with that nippy clove and cinnamon drying things out a bit mid to back palate, but not entirely. Lingering malty and honeycomb sweetness on the aftertaste. Big full flavor - you're not getting cheated here. Some quads like to show off the ABV a bit, but I don't get the 11.3% in the taste here, only in the feel with a little nasal burn.
Speaking of feel, you would expect a world-class mouthfeel from a renowned Trappist brewery like Rochefort, and it does deliver on that front, with a substantive yet pillowy soft feel.
For how quickly the glass gets drained, scary-good drinkability at this level ABV. The 10's as good as advertised. You might think of this as a steak beer, but I could also see it going really well with many desserts....bread pudding? And of course, no slouch by itself either.
I concur with the overall BA review and that of the Bros, and then some. Avail yourself of it if possible.

4.48/5 rDev -0.7%

Dark brown with red tinges. A very thin head of foam. Correct for the style which is not the most visually appealing, Big chunks were visible on pouring the sediment in. I don't mind this.
Aroma is of raisins, prunes, cola and rum. Also smells boozy in a good way.
Taste is of rum, cola, raisins and alcohol. It is very warming and spicy and rich. Absolutely delicious and makes me want to drink it far quicker than you should!
Mouthfeel is very fizzy.
A delightful , complex, boozy Belgian strong dark ale. Not super hard to find and well worth trying for any Belgian beer fan. A must try in fact. Deserves its reputation as one of the greats.
My mark out of a hundred would be 95.
