look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from an 11.2 ounce bottle into a goblet.

Look - A beautiful reddish brown with a massive and long-standing pillowy sandy colored head. This beer is a gorgeous pour.

Smell - Bananas, cloves, milk chocolate, almonds. Some slight peppery and grassy notes on the tail end. A nice balanced blend featuring the typical Belgian ale features and some interesting newcomers.

Taste - The smell translates almost one-to-one into the taste, except everything is hidden behind a strong spicy alcohol curtain. You can taste every bit of the 11.3%.

Feel - The body and carbonation are easy and smooth, but the alcohol really bites going down. It's rough and a bit disappointing.

Overall - I want to love this beer, but the alcohol is so hard to get through. I've had plenty of other high ABV Belgian ales that were super smooth and easy to drink, but this one is not one of them. Still, once you get past the harshness, it is a wonderful beer.

I would prefer to grade it based on a few glasses from a keg but I've only found it in the bottle. Like others of this type (Belgian tripel/Quadrupel) the taste is very smooth for the ABV level. (If you have more than two, have a designated driver or call for an Uber or Lyft!)

I drank it an a bar outside so it was served with a standard plastic cup. (Still a better option than out of the bottle.) Despite the less-than-optimal choice of serving method, the beer poured well with the right amount of head. The feel is smooth on the palate (I hate lagers because they are too bubbly!). Alas, it's been a couple of weeks since I tried the beer so I don't remember the smell other than it was pleasant.

Now the downside. It's expensive. Granted, I live in Northern New Jersey where everything is expensive but the beer is $7 a bottle at a discount store (Total Wine). (I paid $9 at the bar during happy hour. The regular price is $14.)

330ml bottle from the lcbo. In my cellar for 18 months. After warming in the glass the smell has a hint of brandy. Taste is
very warming. The colour is like a dark whiskey. Very fine beer.

Wonderful offering from this Brewer. Tastes wonderful in any weather. I wish it were more widely available at a lower price. That being said, you definitely get what you pay for. Truly unforgettable.

Look, smell, and feel are only 5's because I had to put a number there. I only care about the taste, and it taste's damn good!

I love Rochefort 10. It’s a great Belgium treat. That said, 7 and 9 just don’t get me as happy as 10. So when you see 10, buy it. You will not be disappointed.
