Poured from a 33cl bottle at cellar temperature (Best By Date: 23 May 2022...Packaged 23 May 2017) into a La Trappe Trappist Goblet

A - Pours a ruddy, deep mahogany color with a pillowy, 2-Finger kahki colored head. Conservative retention is suggestive of the 11.3% ABV. (5)

S - Chocolate, Plum, Rasin, Caramel and hints of sweet Cherry make for quite a complex and impactful aroma. Absolutely no alcohol in the nose...quite impressive. (5)

T - It's like drinking a liquid Tootsie Roll. You are first engaged with sweet flavors Caramel and Chocolate followed by some juicy dark fruits. No perceptible warming in the chest even after it has warmed to room temperature. (5)

M - With only a Medium+ body, it drinks much lighter than most other beers clocking in at over 10%. It possesses both a creamy carbonation and finishes quite dry enhancing its drinkability...you will be reaching to take another sip much more quickly than one would think. (5)

O - This is my first experience with Rochefort 10 and drinking it in Belgium for 2.28Euro from the grocery store is pretty epic. Although better than Saint Bernardus Abt12 but ever-so-slightly less impactful than Westvleteren 12, this is an absolute worthy alternative (not to mention supreme accessibility). I can find no fault with this Quadruple and think it is one of the benchmarks for the style. Very much worthy of a perfect score. (5)

This was an ok belgian quad. It was overly carbed to my taste and sweet notes in the palate. Maybe needed to age it a little longer but this didn't do it for me.

From the bottle, it pours mahogany color with a modest head, soon reducing to a partial ring and islands. Huge nose! Candied dark fruit and boozy scent assaults the nose (in a good way)! Caramel malt, candied fruits and a bit of alcohol in the mouth. For some reason, I smelled it and saw a fruitcake in my mind. Feels wonderful in the mouth as well. Wow!

Tasted with a year and a quarter of age on this one

L -- Pours a beautiful nectarine flesh colored body with a large, dense off-white head produced by gentle pour. Great retention and lacing
S -- Raspberries, strawberries, peach, plum, booze, candied dark fruits, warming spices, caramel, toffee, and a hint of doughy yeastiness. Incredibly nuanced
T -- A little sharp on the booziness, but there is great complexity lingering in the background. Yeasty spiciness, vanilla, caramel malts, raspberries, currants, bourbon, oak, brown sugar, and earth
F -- Silky and mouth-coating. The high carbonation is comprised of very tiny bubbles, which seem to give the beer a third dimensionality as it jumps off the palate
O -- Would love to try this side-by-side with St Bernardus 12. Really nice fruitiness throughout, and pretty reasonably priced @ ~$7/12oz bottle. Tastes even better with the bottom sediment mixed in

Cherry color with medium foam upon pour. Cherry, caramel, dark aroma and flavor. Smooth… bit sweet.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a thick fluffy slightly off white head. Lots of different notes on the nose. Dark fruits most prominent with caramel, yeast, raisins, spices and perfume notes. Taste is very complex like the aroma. Very balanced quad. Plums, raisins, caramel, belgian yeast, bready tastes. Full bodied with a creamy and chewy mouthfeel. Incredible beer.
