4.47/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Brown bottle with no label or freshness date, only the cap denotes the type of Rochefort it is.

Appearance: Maximum stickage as the head leaves a dreamy looking lace as well as a pancake of head in the middle of the glass. Bold brown hue with bright ruby highlights, warm looking.

Smell: Dark sugars, perhaps a thick dark brown sugar, some herbal phenolics that are soft and hints of liquorice and cocoa in the nose as well.

Taste: Medicinal, peppery and warming. Thick maltiness with hints of light grade molasses and dark bread. Phenolics are soft but are dug in deep into the taste buds. Hops are mild and weathered with a leafy character. Faint detection of caramelized sugar and a ghost like smokiness. Esters are there but very mellow. It takes a while to take notice the strength of the alcohol as it warms the body.

Mouthfeel: Heavenly smooth and oh so creamy, solid medium to full body. Care has been taken to bring forth such a lush mouth feel.

Drinkability & Notes: Definitely a sip and savour brew and better to pair up with some different cheeses. I opted for a meat and cheese plate and it play well with this tall standing brew.

4.33/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 33cl Euro-style brown bottle. A freshness date of March 23, 2005, but it'll last much longer. Original Beglian label, no Enlgish. Brought over from Belgium. The (10) denotes it's strength, not abv, amongst a series of beers. They also brew a (6) and an (8).

Appearance: Dark, deep, rich rustic brown with a creamy tan tight lace, which is semi-sticky.

Smell: Spicy alcohol, ripe fruit (raisin & plum) and sweet ripe tropical melon aromas.

Taste: Upfront is an immediate prickly alcohol that rides upon a layer of tingly carbonation, making it smooth. Alcohol is extremely warming on the palate, throat and face. The malt is big, sweet & fruity, like ripe plum that melds with a spiciness that brings English Christmas Pudding drizzled with rum to mind. Some spicy pepper notes (from the yeast), some sweet sugary peppermint, almost medicinal to a certian point. Did we mention that this beer is alcoholic?

Notes: Beer like this gives us a reason to live.

330 ml Bottle best before 13.08.2018

A: Pours a lovely dark brown mahogany with about an 1/8th inch tan head that quickly fades to a light lacing

S: Belgian-y yeast characteristics, but definitely not overwhelming. Enticing hints of caramel maltiness with some dark fruit and dates lingering in the background

T: Almost don't know where to begin here, Definitely still a little bit of that wonderful yeastiness, morphing quickly toward the maltier side with some dark fruits and caramelized sugar coming forward a little bit. Very well balanced, absolutely no way to tell there's any alcohol at all - impressive for 11.3%

M: What one expects from a Belgian, certainly on the thinner side when compared to the really dense beers, but well carbonated and certainly not too thin, again, well balanced.

O: Although there isn't any aspect of this beer that I would say is the best for any beer that I have ever had, it is so well balanced and continuously brings hints of new and intriguing flavors that all work so well together, for that reason this is one of the best beers I had had in recent memory.

4.85/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Cloudy brown with a beige head that sticks around all the way through. Tiny sediment squares settle on the bottom.

Alcohol's apparent on the nose, also sour cherries.

Brown sugar with a malty, faintly chocolate, fig-like, pear-ish stain. Awfully rich, even for a quad but still doesn't knock out the palette. There's a delicate burn on the finish. Leaves nothing to be desired, honestly.

Well carbonated, heavy, dense beer.
