Poured into a chalice...

A: Dark brown murky brew with a fluffy white head. Alot of yeast floating in there. soon dissipates but leaves behind a blanket of bubbles. near the end of the drink the bubbles get a brown color to them.

S: Plums and cherry, chocolate cake

T: rich, belgian candy sugar, black cherry, plum and cocoa up front. finishes with dark fruits, spices and woody flavors.

M: a full bodied brew with a good amount of carbonation. entry is smooth and finishes dry. gives tongue a tingling sensation, likely from the high alcohol content

Overall, this is a complex and intriguing brew with rich aromas and flavors. Alot smoother than expected with the high ABV.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A- Pours a murky dark brown with a thick cream colored head. Moderate lacing and head retention. Lots of murky sediment left in the bottle.
S- The smell of this beer is amazing. Caramel, fresh bread, some dark fruits and even ripe bananas. Some alcohol and phenol smell in the background, but dominated by sweet maltiness.
T- Very sweet malt presence, kola nut, bananas and caramel in the front, finishes with booze and cloves. Minimal bitterness. Becomes much more alcohol forward as it warms up.
M- Medium body with a lot of fizzy carbonation. Creamy finish.
D- A great beer for sure. A perfect example of a quad, although once it warmed up i did not enjoy it as much because the alcohol was that much more noticeable. As a side note, I used some of this bottle to replace the cognac in a steak au poivre sauce as well... a great pairing for sure.

Excellent quad. Should benefit from aging.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Look: Pours a light mahogany color with a billowing three finger, khaki head of foam that laces the glass exquisitely.

Aroma: On the nose, sweet milk chocolate, red figs, dates, fresh baked pretzels, soft caramel and some floral notes of yeast akin to banana and clove.

Taste: Docile notes of sugarplums and sweet figs coupled with milk chocolate and gentle caramel. The initial flavors are complemented by a backdrop of clove, vanilla, banana and black pepper on the finish. There is a clean, soothing alcohol profile to it as it warms, and pleasantly, slightly tart notes of tamarind and orange pith emerge as it begins to open up.

Feel: Full bodied and creamy. Not overtly heavy, but rich. Mid-heavy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Very supple and smooth. 11.3% ABV is very well hidden, I've had 8% beers with heavier alcohol profiles.

Overall: Rochefort 10 is a velvety, silky Belgian Quad with rich flavors of candied red, fleshy fruits and milk chocolate with undertones of sweet, peppery, somewhat floral yeast on the finish. Although the flavor is rich, it is never unctuous, unduly sticky or cloying. The mouthfeel is exceptional and absolutely perfect for the style. Worth every penny.

Rating: [A] Outstanding. 4.79/5.

A- Pours a deep dark caramel, frothy bone colored head that recedes quickly.
S- Grapes, black cherries, honey and yeast. Has some woody tones to its scent.
T- Earthy, woody and big alcohol up front. Burnt coffee and some really deep, complex bourbon throat warming characteristics at the end.
M- Frothy, bubbly. Slick in the end.
D- The 11% does not hide itself, one or two max.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a dark brown, with a short head with some lacing

S: Strong aroma, hops, fruits, sugar, caramel, malt

T: Very flavorful, sweet, spicy, strong alcohol taste, slightly overbearing but not horrendous, can taste dried fruits

M: very fulfilling, good amount of carbonation, thick, bold, has volume to it, solid

O: Its up there with the best, not really a fan of beers with higher ABV but certainly should not be a reason to disregard this beer, its rare, its imported, defiantly should jump on the opportunity if it becomes available.

This beer was a high alchohol content for my normal taste but you really only get the good parts of that warm feeling, no overpowering perception of alchohol. Don't be afraid if your don't drink this style of beer or beer's with such high ABV.

I did swirl sediment into poor.

Appearence: dark cider with a nice toffe colored fluffy head that disipates somewhat fast leaving a nice lace on top of beer but a clean glass.

Smell: sweet of malty dried fruits, hint of alchohol

Taste: Got better with each sip as temp rises opening more flavors. Currants, dried fruits and rum with a slight caramel/toffe maltiness.

Mouthfeel: Very fine carbonation expand in your mouth like a mouse, very rich and very smooth for alchohol content.

Drinkabilty: great, its not part of a six pack it's meant to be savored slowely. You will also feel the warmth in your belly and your head letting you know not to rush and/or start to slur your words.

Overall this beer was excellent .

What a dissapointment. Medicinal, sour and bitter. I really don't see what all the hype is about. I hope this was just a bad bottle, but at 7 bones a pop I won't be giving it a retry any time soon. It looked nice, it smelled nice, but it tasted like cough medicine served in an ashtray after you just brushed your teeth. The beer did get better as it warmed, and the alcohol did make it a bit more palatable, but all in all I think it was a bad beer. After trying all the great Unibroue beers this one fell far short.

11.2 FL.OZ bottle.

The pour revealed a dissapointing head that was short lived, and wasn't the head I've come to expect with many Belgian Ale's. I did pour real slow and gentle because of past experiences with almost exploding Belgian Heads.The color is a brownish-red with yeast floating around. Complex aroma of sweet malts with fruity notes. Absolutely exceptional creamy mouthfeel for a beer this strong. Alcohol is well-hidden and has perfect carbonation with a great finish. This could be dangerous because of how easy it goes down. Finish has a dry moderate bitterness with a full body. Hops are tasted more and more with each sip thorughout half the beer. This is very drinkable and a beer not for amatuers. About 3/4 through and I'm feeling the effects of the 11.30 ABV already. This was bought at Town & Country Liquors in West Springfield,Mass. for $6.99/bottle. Overall excellent and lived up to it's reputation.
