Hooray! Finally, I get to put my Trappistes Rochefort chalice to its intended use.

From a 330ml bottle, Rochefort 10 pours a velvety brown with tiny gold highlights; Soon a mochalike froth of a head builds, and the last tilt of the bottle is met with a stream of delicious belgian brown sediment. The head leaves little lacing, and remains as a soapy ring around the murky brown surface.

Smells of raisins and slight sugar are drowned out by oaky alcohol scents - whiskey dominated. Not as strong of a scent as I've come to expect from a quadrupel, especially given the chalice, intended to capture all those scents and offer them up to the nose.

The flavor peaks with a lot more whiskey - There are some grassy tones, and very, very slight cherry, but alcohol and oak are dominant. I absolutely despise whiskey, so this really isn't the flavor for me. The flavor is actually a little watery for a quadrupel, so it reminds me unpleasantly of a whiskey and water.

Mouthfeel is zesty with carbonation, lively, if you will, and rather light. It finishes extremely dry, the alcohol stripping everything from the palate.

I'm uncharacteristically dissappointed in this one - my palate just doesn't like the flavors and experiences it provides very much. I won't rate it lower than average, because I understand that it's my mouth's problem, not the beer's. Your milage may vary.
