4.25/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

11.2oz bottle poured into a wide mouthed snifter, yeast left in the bottle. Best before date of 11/7/17.

A: Pours a deep brown with hues of chestnut and garnet. The off-white head is huge, rocky, and comprised of fine bubbles. Retention is superb, lacing sticks to the glass in thick, uneven patches.

S: Peppery spice is apparent on the nose first. Definite black pepper and a good dose of herbal spice. Bread crust, bread pudding, molasses, chocolate covered caramel chews, bakers chocolate, just a slight hint of charcoal and smoke. Darkfruit aromas of plum, black currant, and concord grape.

T: Chocolate cake, rich caramel, molasses, slight coffee-like roast impression. Touch of smoke. Christmas pudding. Darkfruit flavors of plum, black currant, and concord grape. Subtle pepper and spice notes support nicely. Alcohol is dangerously well-hidden. Fleeting earthy, tea-like hop impression. Drying finish of plum, bakers chocolate, and peppery spice.

M: Big and thick in body. Chewy and syrupy. Carbonation is surprisingly low for the style, but it does enough. Very creamy. Only a slight warming sensation from the alcohol.

O: This is one brawny quad. It's definitely on the sweet side for the style, and it has more body behind it than many of the other Belgian quads I've had. It seems like a sort of brawn rather than brains trade-off. It isn't as nuanced and complex as some of the best quads, yet it's more drinkable despite its size. The alcohol is masked so well that it never occurred to me that this beer is 11.3% abv. That is until I stood up and had to catch my balance. Rochefort 10 is always in the discussion when the 'World's Best Quad' title is debated. It is very good, but now that I've had the time to sit down and cast a more critical eye over it, I don't quite think it's there. It falls just a hair short of its competitors.
