Fresh bottle with a BB date of 07/2019 (bottled on 07/05/2014)

Appearance: dark brown with light showing on the edges of the glass. Very high carbonation; beer started leaping out of the bottle when we opened it. There was a nice and light head that sank to nothing in the glass.

Nose: alcohol, prunes, candi sugar, banana

Taste: prunes, raisins, surprisingly light mouth feel for such a strong beer, very spicy and smooth, slight hop bite in the end, warming alcohol finish.

Overall: in my head I had this one pegged as a perfect 5. I've had Rochefort 8 and 6 before and I had to try the 10 when I saw it on the shelf. I was disappointed with the appearance of this one. It is just a dull brown beer that has little to no head while you drink it. This is in part because of the high alcohol content but it would be nice to see more of a head on this one. Not the best beer I've had this year but a classic example of a Trappist Ale.

Glassware - Tulip
Aged 2 years

A - Brown and murky. The head is full but dissipates quickly.

S - A nice combination of dried fruits and alcohol. Raisins, figs, and perhaps dates.

T - The flavors are subtle and don't leave much on the palate. As it warms, those dried fruits come through a little more along with the alcohol presence.

M - Nice carbonation, medium body.

O - While a very good beer, I expected more. I anticipated the two years of age to bring out more flavors and contribute to its complexity. The flavors were just too subdued and left my palate too quickly. Perhaps two years is not the ideal aging time.
