Pours a very cloudy dark brown color with a thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing are both very good. Has a big boozy aroma with dark fruits. Raisins and dates. Very boozy taste. Creamy and heavy bodied. Dark fruits and slightly sweet. Moderate to high carbonation. Well made beer, but just too much for me.

Ah, the mighty prestigious Rochefort 10... in my snifter... at cellar temperature.

A two-finger, pale-tan head which dissipates quickly. The color is the deepest, darkest, haziest ruby color it could be. Nice.

Smells like vanilla, brandy, and raisins. Maybe some maple syrup too. It's a REALLY nice scent.

The aroma describes the taste to a great extent, but with even more of the dark fruits. It has a fruity richness (...or rich fruitiness?) reminiscent of red wine, but more earthy. Tastes boozy. And of raisins and prunes.

The feel is viscous but spritzy. Feels like a HEFTY Belgian ale, which it is.

I don't know if it's good enough to warrant ten dollars for just under 12 ounces (By Bacchus! that's expensive!), but putting the price aside... It's a really good Belgian ale.

Bottled April 10, 2013

Appearance: Pours a murky red brown color with a finger of a light tan head. Minimal head retention and lacing. Body is nearly opaque with only small amounts of light getting through around the edges of the glass.

Smell: Dark fruits, raisin and fig, hint of caramel, some bready malt.

Taste: Follows the nose. Dark fruits, candi sugar, bready malt, hints of spice.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Carbonation bordering on high. Slight alcohol warmth in the finish, but overall the booze is hidden well.

Overall: Really good beer, but for whatever reason this just doesn't do it for me like some of it's other Belgian counterparts. Still worth a try if you've never had it though.
