I've just bought a new Rochefort glass (the one with the writings and top profile in gold) so I could not dispense myself to have a Rochefort 10.
The appearance starts from the bottle, so simple and so impressive: Trappistes Rochefort is written in a font that arouses respect, with that pale yellow backgrounfd and the big dot that says "10"... and then the beer: so brown and dark , but still luminescent, with that tick, dense foam that stays there forever, the right thing in the right place, like the cord on the tunic of the monks.
Smell is of dark sugar, liquor, choccolate, cocoa and something toasted, more pungent than other quadrupels. Great.
Taste is a bit herbal, bready, peppery, again something toasted. Mouthfeel is where Rochefort 10 gives its best: the little carbonation leaves a hint of water that suddenly gives place to a smooth and creamy sensation that finishes with a very well balance on the taste side, not dry, not bitter, not sweet, a little tart.
Drinkability.... you can have just one and be very happy, or still want for more. This is a serious beer, I prefer have one and meditate on how great it is.
