4.5/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

11.2oz bottle, best by May 16, 2012, this has about 3.5 years under its belt. Served at cellar temp.

Pours murky brown with a fair fizzy-looking off white/tan head that holds a small cap but doesn't leave much lacing.

Aroma is a lot of dark fruits, raisins, plums, figs, currants, grapes, good caramel along with toasted bread, yeast, some chocolate, a bit of molasses, candi/brown sugar. Very good strength and I seem to pick up something new each time I take a whiff.

Flavor is a rich combination of dark fruits, plums, figs, raisins, black currants, as well as chocolate, toffee, brown sugar, caramel, molasses, toasted bread and yeast. No real alcohol in the taste, but a touch of heat as it goes down. A bit of sweetness, not much bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy and lush, medium carbonation. Drinks all too well for such a big beer.

It's been a few years since I've tried the 10 and to be honest I wasn't blown away the first time...felt it was a bit on the watery side but this bottle certainly isn't. Very rich, complex and delicious. Definitely holds up well to some age.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Much like the Chimay line of beers, and other Trappist brews, the blasé appearance of the bottle belies the complex flavor that lies within. It smells heavily like sugar, probably brown, and anise seed. It tastes heavily fruity, like a carbonated brandy, and is very yeasty. Goes pretty well with some Machego cheese and some hard salami. It's also got a pretty high alcohol content, around 11%, but the kick's somewhat delayed as it's just so darn tasty and toasty you don't really notice the wallop it packs 'til later.
