A: The beer pours a dark muddy brown with a thick tan head that quickly fades. No lace is left on the glass.

S: I am getting a sweet grape smell with some raisin and plum, a little bit of alcohol and even some sweet sugary scent.

T: Where to start... Now it taste a lot like figs, a little bit of raisin and little bit of other dark fruits that I cant exactly pin point.

M: The beer is pretty smooth with a nice bit of crispness on the back of the throat and goes down with ease.

O: I reviewed this beer a year ago and wasnt too fond of it, but now that my palate has matured, this beer truly shines and I love this beer.

Finally decided to sit down and review this phenomenal brew, though I have had it many times prior to this one. Poured into a tulip. Best by 16 Feb 2016.

Pours a deep mahogany brown that is highlighted by ruby and garnet hues in the light. The head reaches about an inch before it quickly subsides to a thin film. Spotty and thick bands of lace grace the sides of my glass.

Aromas and flavor are tops for the quads that I have enjoyed. Raisins, dates, toffee, caramel, and rich chocolatey undertones are the main characteristics here. The flavor follows suit and adds some warm alcohol, a hint of sherry-like oxidation that just enhances the flavor. There are also some sweet cherry notes to round this out.

Medium-thick texture along with some prickly carbonation. This is definitely one of the best quads out there, if not THE best. I will have to drink a bottle of Pannepot to decide which is tops...

Poured into a snifter

Appearance: opaque, coffee brown, tan, one finger head that lingers. Great lacing

Smell: malts rush in with chocolate in their wake. Belgian yeast and dark fruits bring up the rear.

Taste: Chocolate dominates with Belgian yeast sliding in for a very smooth finish. Molasses lingers on the tongue. Didn't really taste the alcohol, but I knew it was there when my head began to fog up.

Mouthfeel: medium; chewy. Heavy carbonation. Love to let this one sit on the tongue and gestate.

Overall: A bit pricey, but an immaculate sipping beer. Perfect for those cold nights. Glad I finally got to try this highly ranked masterpiece.

Rochefort 10 is an amazing quad. Pours a deep brown with a creamy head and lacing. Smells of raisins, figs, caramel; sure enough, those tastes blend harmoniously with malt and pleasant spiciness. This is rich stuff. Mouthfeel gets a 5 - can't improve on this. If you don't have fancy beer glasses at home, use a nice wine glass. This is tops.

A big thanks to BaconIsLife for gifting this to me recently.

A: Pours a murky brown with hints of red..mahogany, I guess. Just about a finger of off-white to tan head, dense. Some light, soapy lacing and a cap that's just a thinner version of the original head..pretty dense for a cap.

S: Oh boy. Rich caramel, plum, fig, raisin, clove, slightly peppery. Very nice.

T: Bready, caramel, dark fruits mentioned in the smell, molasses, clove, banana maybe...slighty smokey in the finish. Very, very tasty.

M: Slightly chewy with a hint of alcohol burn. Warming.

O: This is an excellent, delicious beer and one that I'm glad is available locally. The alcohol is pretty understaded so this is very drinkable and could get you in trouble if not careful. I'll buy this again, no doubt about it. Thanks Tyler..you're a real doll.
