A 330ml bottle, with a best before date of 3rd October 2022. Poured into a Chimay goblet.

Appearance: Dark brown in colour with an almost two finger tanned head that had decent retention but eventually settled to a nice self replenishing cap while leaving nice curtain like lacing.

Aroma: Strong dark fruits, plum, dates, raisin, black currants, caramel, light roast, toasted bread with a hint of clove and bubblegum.

Taste: Lightly sweet, dark fruits, plum, raisin, dates, fig, black currant, candied sugar, caramel with light banana and clove.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, light syrup, light booze, medium to full bodied with moderate to low carbonation.

Overall: Excellent, just so good. This is easily my favourite Trappist Quadrupel out there. It’s just so balanced, tasty and a joy to drink.

Rochefort 8 was my favorite offering from Brasserie de Rochefort, until I shared a 10 with Sergio (from Sergio's World Beers). Great!

I had this as part of a side by side with Westy 12. The three of us participating all agreed that the Westy 12 was much better. I was a little surprised that the Rochefort 10 didn't grab me more. It's good, to be sure, but not as remarkable as I hoped, and not quite in the same ballpark as some of my favorite quads, BDSAs, or other strong beers. The body of the beer was a little lighter than I expected. It's a bit tart. Of course, there are lots of dark fruit flavors.

The Westy 12 was three years old, and the Rochefort 10 was a few months off the store shelf, so that might be a factor. I think I'll sock a couple of bottles away, and taste again in a couple of years, to see whether my opinions change. If so, I'll update this review.
