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

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a fine tulip stout glass.

A-wow, this is a beauty. Dark mahogany brown color with a hint of reddish highlights. Opaque. There's a lot of carbonation in that dark room of a beer that sports a modest creamy brown head and minimal lacing.

S-like freshly bake cinnamon-raisin bagel or- dare I say- home-made babka, toasted and buttered. That covers malts, sweets, breads, and fruits. There is evidence of alcohol in the aroma.

T-Wake up taste buds because here it comes: an avalanche of the above mentioned bagel and babka flavors in liquid form. Raisins, dark fruit, strong malt; alcohols galore.

M-medium feel despite the alcohol content, not heavy or thin. It is a little fizzy on the tounge as well. Not AAL fizzy, tart and lively from carbonation that dances.

O-This is a great beer to finish up the evening after taking others brews. It's a 'one and done', but the 'one' is a '10'.

Poured from a bottle into a beautiful signature Trappistes Rochefort chalice. The pour is a clear, very dark mahogany color with ruby-red highlights and a thin creamy-looking head. The nose offers berries, jam, some alcohol, and that Belgian yeasty smell that reminds me of puff pastry.

Very full-bodied beer with high carbonation and a huge, robust flavor profile. It is syrupy-sweet with big fruity, bready flavors. I also get flavors of ginger and holiday spices on a nice, lingering finish. It's like liquid fruitcake. There is definitely some alcohol presence, but not enough to impart booziness. Combined with the fruit flavors, it gives the beer a strong port-like quality, making it a big league sipper.

This is a huge beer. The differential in strength of flavor between 10 and 8 is even greater than that between 8 and 6. The carbonation level is quite high on all these beers, but 10 has the flavor to support it. Although I rated Rochefort 10 the highest of the three, I have to admit I sort of prefer the relative domesticity of the 8 to the sheer power of the 10. Rochefort 8 has a lot of the flavor, and is easier to drink.

4.38/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Aroma: Mild fruity esters, mostly raisin. Some orange citrus. Pepper spice. Rose-like alcohol. Mild pale malt. Some floral and pine hops. Complex, but not overly bold.

Appearance: Dark brown. Cannot see through even with a bright LED flashlight. Pours a tall light brown head. Good retention. Dissolves leaving a thin spotty layer.

Taste: Sweet dark fruits, some chocolate, floral hops, spicy alcohol. The fruit flavor lingers and is extremely pleasant and refreshing. Some dark malt character. The first of this style that I've found any amount of wortyness. Mild orange citrus.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Mild to moderate carbonation. A little oily and creamy. Impressively it's not drying considering the 11% ABV. Very little warming from the alcohol.

Overall: Far superior to the St. Bernardus 12 that I had earlier this week (in my opinion anyways). Complex, super smooth, actually refreshing. Not overly sweet or bitter. A real treat.

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

11.2 ounce bottle poured into Allagash 40CL Tulip

A: Murky brown, reddish hue, looks like, whatever!

S: Delicious candy caramel, some earthy fruit, smells sweet and heavenly. A definite bit o' booze.

T: Apple cider, figs, dates, prunes, candy sugar, touch of spice. Sweet melded heavenly drink here.

M: Extremely smooth and balanced, refreshing, zingy, a touch of creaminess. Excellent.

O: This is by far the best Quad I've had, it simply an awesome brew and worth the price for a once in a while treat. A masterful brew.

Bottled on 1/9/10

Poured from 11.2oz bottle into an Ommegang chalice.

A: Pours a very dark brown, almost black color. 1 finger of light tan head that dissapates very quickly. No lacing.

S: Lots of sweet dark fruits. Grape, raisin, plum and yeasty esters. Very pleasant and inviting.

T: The sweet dark fruits come through again on the palate. A very nice balance between the grape and plum notes and the yeast notes. Some nice lingering dry fruitiness. Age has definitely brought some more goodness out in this one.

M: Soft pillowy feel overall. Moderate bod y with high carbonation. Slight stickiness on the lips.

Age has done wonders to this beer. It's a beautifully sweet fruity beer now. Perfect for dessert and very easy to drink. Nicely balanced and not too sweet.
