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.

4.33/5 rDev -4%

A : Dark brown. Poured with a lively half inch head that quickly disappeared. Looks like what I'd come to expect the style to look like, but nothing remarkable different.
S: New to trying put names to smells in beers, but I get some plum and what I'll call other dark fruit, and a breaded smell. Not an explosion of different smells to me, but enjoyable none the less.
T: Taste follows the nose without the bread, with the alcohol being the main addition. Smelled a little better than it tasted to me which I guess means the alcohol did not benefit the taste.
M: Bubbly effervescent as I'm accustomed to and enjoy with the style and enjoyable. Not experienced enough doing reviews to nail down why I know I prefer the Westy 12 mouthfeel to this.
O: A great example of the style, and a quality brew. Overall ranking likely impacted by this not being my favorite style of beer.
