Pours a very dark garnet color. Three-finger head of light brown foam. Retention is very good. Lacing is thick, but slippery, leaving an oily sheen on the sides of the glass.
A beautiful nose, indeed. Big notes of brown sugars and caramel malts. Figs, dates, plums and cherries are among the dark fruits present in this glass. Light notes of vanilla, spices candi sugars and sweet molasses.
Very complex and appealing nose.
As far as I'm concerned, forget the 6 and 8. Rochefort 10 is where it's at. Damn, that's a great brew.
Huge dark fruit notes dominate. Raisins, figs, plums, cherries, and more. Every sip seems to bring something new. Wonderful malty backbone. Caramel, brown sugar, light molasses and toffees. Toasted nuts. Great spice presence. Belgian candi sugars. There's so much going on in this brew.
This is a flavor-bomb of a beer and that's just what I like. This is NOT for the meak!
Nicely full-bodied. Nicely creamy, yet very smooth and easy-to-drink. Medium, almost high, level of carbonation, which is just about perfect, for this one.
While the 11.30%ABV is noticed, in the feeling department, it certainly doesn't seem that big in the flavor department. This is such a well-balanced brew. Very drinkable, especially in the land of Quads. The high ABV keeps it from a perfect score for drinkability, but I wouldn't change a thing about this one.
One of my all-time favorites.
