11.2oz. bottler served into a Trappistes Rochefort goblet

Pours a cloudy, opaque even, mass of chocolate pudding looking brown. Whatever. The tight cap of beige head sits on top for ever and ever at 1/2 finger in size in this Trappistes Rochefort glass. It looks fine enough.

This beer isn't a looker, which is okay because it is a smeller. Dark fruits -- drunken raisins and prunes and figs -- explode into the nose. Some dark cherries too. Darkly toasted bread adds a solid backbone to all the fruit. There is alcohol present, as there always seems to be in Quads.

Rochefort 10 excels in taste. The smoothness in which all of the intricate dark fruits and yeasty flavors are blended into each other is remarkable. Raisin leads into vanilla leads into toffee leads into fig and they are all expressed simultaneously after the first few sips. The alcohol isn't as noticeable as I thought it was going to be. Its there on the back end but it mostly compliments the flush of cherry on the finish. This is malty delight; a beer of deserved renown.

For all of the strength of flavor that Rochefort 10 has the mouthfeel is pretty light. Its on the lighter end of medium-bodied. It carries all of the flavors pretty well; the smoothness of flavor is especially noteworthy considering that the body is not close to being creamy or anything. Drinkability is damn good compared to most other Quads I've had. The alcohol is barely noticeable on the tongue and the flavors are, again, so well integrated.

Trappistes Rochefort 10 is a world-class beer. You'd be hard-pressed to find a beer that better exemplifies the term "craft beer." This is stupendously crafted. A beer like this can only be the product of a wealth of knowledge executed over hundreds of years. I'd advise you to take advantage of its existence.
