look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Dark molasses brown, almost black in colour. One finger of bubbly eggshell head which fades swiftly to a collar and minimal lacing.

S - Sweet and warming, slightly medicinal. Prune, berries and treacle, very complex and enticing.

T - Ashy chocolate, blackberry, prune, raisin, strawberry, treacle, brown sugar and smoke.

M - Moderate to high carbonation, medium body, somehow fizzy but smooth.

O - Top quality quad with all the intricacies.

Being from the Kalamazoo, MI area(founders, bells, goose island, three floyds all within driving distance) and living in Portland, Or the past three years(beer city, if you will), I was a bit hesitant at the hype of this beer...alas, I'm converted. These Belgium monks know how to brew! Skeptics beware, this beer will blow your mind.

Pours smooth with a silky brown/hazelnut/caramel feel into a chalice. Head brings about a smell of dark fruits with a sweet, slight sense of alcohol in the nose. Very complex.

Taste is out of this world, it took my tongue on a smooth rollercoaster, hitting it in the front with a delightfully sweet, yet earthy start into the surreptitious and complex taste of the 11.3 abv, all while maintaining world class mid tones that add the complexity you would expect from a world class quad.

I've found it best to drink at slightly under room temp...lets all of those wonderful flavors come out.

Delicious.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into a Leffe Challice. Bottle is dated 090113, so I guess this makes it a little over 3 and a half years aged. Never been a fan of how this style looks so I always skew it up a little. Dark brown, sort of darker apple cider or muddy water, so it's hazy. Small off white colored head and a little bit of lacing.

Nice smelling beer, really nice. Candied and caramelized dark fruits. Particularly apples as the primary fruit, then some pears. Plenty of natural sugar aromas to accompany the fruits.

Since I don't like the look, I'm glad I like the smell and taste of this style generally. Taste picks up where the smell leaves off. Like most well done quads it has a natural sweetness. Apples, pears, raisins, and and chocolate covered cherries.

Mouthfeel is good. Full flavor with a really good carbonation level that's held up nicely. Very clean feel that I don't find characteristic of the style, you can tell it's quality. Has a very nice dry finish, sort of like a woody red wine. This beer is very drinkable too, goes pretty quick. I like this a lot, but I think I'd like to try one that's ore like a year or so on it. May edit this review upon further investigation.

This beer deserves every bit of the 99 rating that it has and more. One of my favorite beers of all time. This beer is great to age and by my opinion is best between 3 to 5 years. I have had the pleasure of enjoying many bottles of Roch 10, some as old as 10 years. Roch puts the date on the front of the bottle, five years ahead of the date it was bottled.
