Appearance - Poured from the bottle into a goblet. Very, very dark brown with a tan head about 1 finger thick, dissipating slowly.
Smell - Not overpowering. The nose consisted of subtle hints of dark fruit and bread. About halfway though, a slight alcohol smell was more noticeable.
Taste - Dark fruit flavors spread over the palate. Sugar and malt flavors do a good job of masking the alcohol content. Aftertaste was slightly dry with the fruit flavors lingering and only then was I able to taste the alcohol sneaking out from underneath only slightly.
Mouthfeel - Very refreshing and not as "heavy" as I'd expect from a quad. Very palatable and each sip was more inviting than the last. Moderate carbonation.
Overall - Easily the best Quad I've had. I enjoyed this at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia and prior to this tasting, had only been able to try the 8, so finally getting to meet the 10 was a memorable experience. The Rochefort 10 carries an abundance of taste and fills the palate with a variety of dark fruit flavors. Very refreshing feel to it for the style of beer. If you're looking for a world-class quad, this is it.
