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.

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.
