From notes on 11/19/11:
Drink by: 02/16/16; Poured in a snifter.
A - Very dark, murky brown in color with a slight garnet hue; Two inches of light tan, frothy, finely carbonated head that leaves some lacing around the glass; Head has pretty nice retention
S - I pull out new aromas with each sniff - awesome! Notes of dark fruits like raisins and plums, cherries, pepper, toast, dark chocolate, molasses, cloves, and grapes; Very faint alcohol burn in the nose
T - Big, rich flavor here with lots of dark fruits up front, followed by warmth from the alcohol and a peppery taste; Afterwards, I get more dark fruits with molasses, sugar, caramel, toast, grapes and a little tartness; Flavors stay with you long after the sip, and they're very pleasant
M - Full bodied with low, but zesty carbonation that tingles the tongue; Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel; Slight tart and dark fruity coat left in the mouth, leaving it feeling pretty dry; Just a small hint of alcohol taste, but the warmth is much more noticeable
O - Rochefort 10 was my first ever Quad, and I'm truly convinced that it's one of the best beers I've had to date. The taste and mouthfeel of this beer seem perfect to me, making it very challenging to sip this at an appropriate pace. The smell may be a bit on the light side, but it's still very nice, with all aromas coming together harmoniously. Definitely take your time with this beer and enjoy the complexity that it brings. I can't wait to have some more of this beer in the future, and also try other offerings in this style.

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.
