Poured from bottle into wine glass.

A: Rusty brown with a billowing tan head.
S: Grape juice and must. Brown bread. Cinnamon. Bran. Prunes. Buttery candy.
T: Sweet and alcoholic, with dark fruits and bready notes. Yeast character is spicy. Sweetness dies down to a nice warming sensation.
M: Medium-full.
O: Very nice quad. Dark fruits and sweet upfront, with a nice finish.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Very dark mahogany brown, topped by one finger's worth of tan head that quickly falls to a thin film in short order. Spotty lacing.

Aroma presents sweet malts, dark fruits, and spicy undertones, and an almost medicinal hit of alcohol.

Flavors come in sweet- toffee, dark fruit (raisin, plum), along with a sharp (but not unpleasant) alcohol tang. Spice flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove follow in soon after. The finish is semi-dry and warming, with lingering peppery-ness and toasted dark bread malt.

Mouth-feel is on the "full" side of medium-bodied, smooth but with tingling accents from the brisk carbonation. The 11.3 % ABV is quite assertive- you'll know you're drinking a BIG beer, here- but it never quite crosses the line into being "hot."

Rochefort 10 is pretty much the exemplar of what a Belgian Quad should be. Big, complex, assertive, and booze-y, with wonderful fruit complexity. The sweet/spicy contrast of the malts and the yeast works beautifully here with the alcohol lending a fortifying warmth. One of the all-time great sipping beers, to be sure.

Pretty much the perfect beer. And you can buy it any day of the week and never have to wait in line for it. Goodness
