4.58/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Bottled 05/18/11.

Emptied (minus the decanted waste) the bottle into the goblet so gently and sacrificed the head... damn. The sliver there was has fallen and is now not. Deep purple-brown in color with some translucency.

Cocoa powder, plum, fig, medicinal phenols, bing cherry pits, orange pulp, light booze, pie crust, toffee, and pinot. One of the most complex noses on a beer that you will ever come across.

Figgy and roasty with delightful dark fruit notes of grape, black cherry, plum, candied orange, and nectarine. Malty and rich with fanciful swatches of dusted cocoa, pumpernickel, and oozey pecan pie filling. Rusty booze prickles the tongue. A far-from-balancing, but appreciated, dose of bitterness in the middle-to-end with a faint kiss of hops. Medicinal flavors shadowingly twist and contort into a more herbal finish. Godly good.

Medium-to-full body with a lot of carbonation. Booze is right where it should be for a royal sipper. Lively action on the tongue and warming comfort in the gut.

The 'War and Peace' of beers. A quad that only has competitors; which is to say, Rochefort 10 is in the upper-eschelon of all beers. Looking back on eight years of enjoying great beer, this was definitely my first quad and one of my first loves. I, and probably you as well, do NOT buy this beer enough, or as often. Overall, perfect.

4.81/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Dark brown with a slightly lighter brown yeast sediment at the bottom of the glass. Looks thick, hearty and inviting. Nice beige head that sticks around.

S: Raisins, figs, chocolate, and a nearly infinite deepness of rich Belgian-style ale.

T: All of the above elements, with a lifting taste of alcohol that adds both a bitterness and a sweetness that sticks to you in a delightful way. Elements of a finer wine or a port in the bite, but with the same multi-layered complexity of other Belgian ales that introduces its merits in stages. Overall, fantastic. A real treat, and likely the best beer I've had so far (no small feat!). It felt like a gift to drink.

M: Thick and engaging. The alcohol tastes warmed while its smoothness enriched. Amazing.

O: This would be a great after dinner drink, but it could fit anywhere, really. Delicious and satisfying, and very drinkable for the ABV. I'd reccomend this to anybody who loved beer. I'll definitely be buying more. A+

4.45/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This is such a great trappist brew that whenever I drink it I feel like a merry monk. Yes the ABV % is high but the flavor of this brew is full variety of flavors. It has a very smooth texture for me. The sediment is also interesting, it has a nice coloration and once it hits you towards the end of the drink it adds a subtle complex flavor that can only be expected from a trappist. Some trappist style brews do not have as nearly the great flavor as this one does, so this one for me is a favorite among trappist style brews.

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.
