A: NIce dark brown color with a slight hint of read. Poured nicely with a good amount of caramel head.

S: Smells of alcohol right off that bat. Smells somewhat of a sour beer with, smelling of cherries wine. This smell makes me what to try the beer and its a very unique smell.

T: Very strong alcohol taste. Hits you right away and takes a moment before you notice the dark chocolate,malt, caramel taste. Leaves a sweet taste on your tongue.

M: Good mouthfeel. Moderate thickness to it and light carbonation.

O: Overall, this is a very good beer.

This bottle was picked up at Julio's quite some time ago. Fairly sure this is either an 09 or 10 vintage. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a crystal clear chestnut pour with a thin off white almost mocha head that fades to leave a nice cloud and slight lacing/halo.

S - Strong dark fruits like figs and carmel malts along with some slight warming booze.

T - Sweet carmel malts, slightly heavy and syrupy. Nice dark fruits such as figs and some good booze notes.

M - Boozy and syrupy. Still, for this style and ABV its a good feel. Light carbonation.

O - Overall, I can understand the hype behind this beer now. Not sure if I should held onto this for so long though.

Enjoyed from bottles on numerous occasions. This is in regular rotation in my bar.

A - Deep and mesmerizing. Elegant like the flowing hair of a young brunette vixen.

S - Flowery but not overpowering. Definitely hints of sour fruits and chocolate.

T - Delightful. This is why I pay the premiums to buy this every time I'm at the local beer store to bring home a few bottles. Among the stars of "Belgium day" when I focus on Belgian food and drink for 24 hours...

M - The effervescense is pronounced for a quad; strong carbonation like most bottle conditioned Belgians, but it's not overwhelming.

O - One of my very favorite beers, right up there with Delirium's offers (all three) and Westy 12 (the holy grail of Belgian beers).

I make time to enjoy this beer. I recommend others do to; give it a proper pour and be careful of the suspended yeast; it's not like a hefe - you don't really want it - as it will cloud and sour your experience.

The Trappist Rochefort 10 is a beautifully dark, rich beer. It is very alcoholic for a beer at about 11.5% which is why it is called Rochefort 10. This beer retains its head for quite a while considering its ABV which, for me, is one of the determining factors of a quality beer. Deep, complex flavors that gradually change even as your pallet adapts to the flavor like all truly great beers should, in my opinion. Flavors change from hints of dark caramel-raisiny to light floral notes at the finish which are likely brought out from the high ABV. Because this beer is a quadrupel, the alcohol is very prominent and perhaps maybe too prominent for those who are new to the wonderful world of Belgian style beers, however, to those who are accustomed to strong flavored beers this one is great! It does sound like I am going on and on about how much alcohol is detectable in this beer, but don't misinterpret this as a fault, this beer is balanced near perfectly. In summary, this beer is very complex, has a beautiful dark brown (nearly black) color, strong slightly sweet/rich smell, and a complex taste. The Trappist Rocheforts are on my all time favorites list. Absolutely Delicious!
