Review from 7/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a dark, dark red amber with massive head and lacing. Dark fruit aroma. Absolutely delicious. Tastes of dark fruit, caramel slightly floral with Belgian yeast and malt. Complex, creamy, rich and flavorful. Almost impossibly, smoother and more integrated than the 8. Perfect

11.2 ounce bottle poured into a snifter

A- Pours a very dark woody brown,amber. A massive three finger off tan head. Very nice lacing and impressive alcohol legs. Lots of particles after the swirl.

S- The first thing I get is dark fruits. A lot of caramel coated raisins, plums and dates. A sugary sweetness to them all. There's also a slight bread note.

T- I get a slight bitterness and alcohol sting up front. Followed up by a smooth array of breaddy notes, dark caramel and toffee. The back end of this beer is all dark fruits, There is raisins, plums, figs and dates. Finish is all dark fruit and it sticks around

M- This is a big beer that is very well balanced out by enormous amounts of alcohol and carbonation. Surprisngly easy to drink for its size. Goes down with high carbonation and a velvety feel.

O- Awesome Quad and it certainly lives up to its reputation. I cant say I like it as much as St. Bernardus Abt 12, it is very close and certainly a worthy adversary spite the two beers being so different. Get it.

I had this at the local restaurant as part of their beer incentive program. I had this on my list of "to-do's", so why not today?

I poured this into a chalice and got about two fingers of foam. I picked-up a decent amount of dark fruit and some light sour off the top.

This is a very good example of a quad. I like the balance of ale presence and dark fruits. It wasn't too heavy or strong. I like the balance.

The Rochefort 10 is a pretty easy to get beer. I recommend picking up a couple bottles. Drink one and cellar the bottle. This beer tastes like it is good for aging.

A- down the middle, she poured very quickly; that is any head created from the pour--1/4 inch or less--rapidly settled and disappeared. the color most reminds me of a table stained that "dark walnut/dark mahagony" hue. thin looking, like brandy.
S- light candied plum, light pear, really sweet smelling like a liqueur of some sort of dark skinned fruit, and a light brown sugar back-note.
T- malt bill is sturdy. tastes of malt syrup even: strong, rich, sweet, numbing in its intensity. plum is back in, as is the brown sugar, and some earth, like dirt wood, finishes it out. so beautiful and interesting. alcohol is slighy in balance by the strong flavors.
M- soft. very delicate for something technically this big. though the flavors are bold, she drinks really softly. little numbing tinge, but at 11.3, this is expected, right?
so damn good. so
good. so astonishingly available that i slap myself everytime i have this for not having a case to develop.

Poured from bottle into Founders snifter. Serious fizzy two-fingered light tan head. Dissipates to thin layer, retention is minimal but does climb and recede every sip. Blend of dark fruit coloring, I'd say raisin, raspberry, strawberry and cherry, and grape. Smell is light and of dark fruit aromas. I generally do not like dark fruit-based beers, like ommegang's three philosophers, but this is much different. Smell is crisp and sharp. Taste is otherworldly -- nectar, grape juice, unreal. Nutty presence, but not overwhelming. Mouthfeel is smooth and dry, aftertaste is a bit bubbly, like a champagne, but much less biting. This beer is awesome, prob #2 on my list of Trappispte beers.

This is a great dark beer that packs a wollop at 11.3%.

The appearance is dark with a reddish frame. The head is thin but the brew is robust with carbonation not flat like a lot of darker brews.

The smell is earthy and hoppy with a twinge of alchohol.

This beer tastes great! You can taste chocolate and caramel.

Mouthfeel is bubbly.

Love this beer just wish it was not so darn expensive at $7.50 per 12 oz bottle.
