Poured into a DFH snifter with the yeast left behind.
Pours a deep brown akin to a cider with a super fluffy, yet fine three finger tan head. Just huge, beautiful, and supremely dense. Moderate lacing on the glass.
Aroma is of candy sugar, apricot, belgian yeast with some earthy notes. A very sweet aroma! The fruits and breadiness of the yeast dominate overall. Smells delicious...
Taste is wonderful.. and follows the aroma closely. Fairly sweet, the fruits and yeast take over as does the ABV. Some earthy bitterness rounds out the sweetness and brings a great balance. This may be a relatively fresh bottle as the last time I had rochefort 10 I don't recall it as being as in your face.
Mouthfeel is chewy and viscous. There's lots of carbonation to round everything out.
Drinkability is good. I would never drink more than one in a sitting though.
Between this and Orval, I'd have a hard time picking my favorite beer.
