Pours a very dark brown, not much light getting through it. Has about an inch of an off white head that dissipates quickly. leaving some nice lacing.

The smell of this one reminds me a bit of candy, mainly toffee and caramel. Bit of brown sugar and cookie dough as well.

Sweet and fruity, lot of dried fruit like raisin and fig going on. There is brown sugar and toffee, and that distinctive Belgian candy sugar flavor.

Full and smooth, nothing to complain about here.

I am reviewing this right after trying their 8, and while similar, there are differences. Both are nice and complex, but I notice the alcohol warming on the 8 more. This is a big beer, one you need to savor slowly. Definitely one of the best quads I have had, I can see why this beer is rated as world class.

A - Rochefort 10 is a deep,leathery brown with rusty highlihgts. Head is packed, tan colored and lasting. As it recedes, Belgian lace clings to the side of my glass.

S - Rochefort 10's aroma gives up front notes of leather, ripe figs, and dampe earth on an autumn day. Then comes the aroma of dried fruit and spices. Maybe Christmas cake spices? Notes of damp earth and dried tobacco provide a nice through note.

T - Rochefort 10 is medium full bodied and full of flavor. Dried ripe fruits combine with tobacco, ripe figs, and a gentle spiciness. On the tongue spiciness has a more cloves, rum and raisin quality than the nose led me to expect. Rochefort 10 is dry and crisp without overly accentuating the beer's spicy qualities. Finish is only slightly alcoholic and offers a pleasant warmth.

O - This is one of the best beers I've had to date. It's just so complex and well balanced. It's big in every way without losing its refinement. Rochefort 10 even manages to carry its 11.3% abv with incredible deftness and grace.
