I took this following the day I had my Rochefort 8 so basically I conquered 3 Rocheforts in 3
separate nights. The Rochefort 10 is a Quadrupel which is highly acclaimed in the Beerdom and I
definitely agree that it is a great beer. The Rochefort 10 pours out brown black with a nice
thick head with pretty good retention. As with the 2 other Rocheforts, it looks great with a nice
smooth looking head. A strong smell emanates from the glass dropping a distinctive hint of rich
and unique fruitiness, a precursor to a truly complex fruity taste that is to be expected. Also
obvious in the smell is a certain tartness which further exemplifies the already promising smell.
The taste was big on fruits and indeed complex with many different kinds of fruit; naming a few,
I can sense apples, grapes, plums, dates, berries and other fresh smelling dark fruits. The taste
has a certain strength or character to balance up the entire feeling of the beer with a dash of
sweetness. The taste was also clearly mellow despite it being a very strong ale at 11.3 ABV; the
smoothness in the taste bears witness to masterful brewing which well masqueraded the alcoholic
strength. There is significant floral aromas blended with alcholic phenols on the nose and I
found that really pleasant; the slight bitterness in the finish did nothing to detract the
greatness from this beer. The body is sufficiently thick with a clear level of carbonation is
goes in really smooth boasting of great drinkability for an 11.3 ABV monster. The after taste
was another party for the pellates as all the complex fruitiness slowly converges to form a
citrusy, grape and plum like tastes which proves to be fairly lasting. The Rochefort 10 is truly
a great beer. Rocheforts are generally smooth, mellow, fruity beers with great appearance and
great in masking a strong ABV. The general improvement that could apply across the board for all
Rocheforts would be a thicker body and maybe a tad bit of sweetness more.

Beervana. Have been looking for this for several months when I finally found it and snatched it up. Chilled it to about 60°, then poured into a tulip glass. Appearance dark brown with a bit of reddish hue, half inch of fine small bubbled head, and good lacing. Some yeast sediment which aided in dispersing carbonation. Smell is amazing. Great Belgian yeast Aroma, brown bread, dark cherries, and a hint of brown sugar. Taste is amazing. Complex, with dark fruits, cola, toasted brown bread, and grape nuts giving way to a tart cherry and dried plum, with a bit of alcohol heat, but not what you'd expect, considering the ABV. Finished sweet and rich, with a lingering raisin toast flavor that faded towards coffee and burnt sugar, in a good way. I believe that this is the best beer I have ever had, and I've had quite a few trippels and quads, but this is simply outstanding. Wish it was more readily available.

$3.65 bottle from the LCBO.
A - Ruby/Brown colour with nice two finger head of small bubbles.
S - Dates, caramel, port.
T - Caramel, molasses, Belgian yeast, dark fruit, and some sweetness. Very complex and absolutely delicious. For such a high alcohol content this beer does not taste 'boozy' at all. Incredible.
M - Rich and luxurious with great carbonation. Outstanding.
O - This is definitely one of my favourite beers of all-time. I love quads and this is one of, if not the best.
