Complex and distinguished. A fine brew for a fine occasion. Received as a gift from my gal who purchased a three pack in Belgium consisting of the 6, 8 and 10. Taste wise, each was better than the last. I'd say the 8 was most drinkable, and the 10 best overall. This Quad is certainly one to indulge in, or at least try.

Note: bought this one on March. It was on the cellar until this date.

A: Dark brown body with a beige 2-fingered head. It retains foam very well leaving a beautiful lace.
S: Yeasty smell with cherries, dark fruits. You can smell some spices.
T: Consistent with the smell, you can taste the cherries in it. It's almost perfect.
M: Creamy, carbonated, alcohol goes almost unnoticed (for a 11.3% ABV).
O: This is for sure the best beer I've ever had until today. I've had some Trappists before this one but this Trappistes Rochefort 10 sets the higher standard.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip.

A: An unfiltered dark brown ale that almost looks red. The head pours thick and off white. Then retains very well, leaving little lacing on the glass.

S: Thick, dark fruits and cherry come through in what is a sour aroma with a bit of a spice kick. Every bit what a Belgian quad should smell like.

T: Very true to the aroma, this strong quad gives sweet dark fruits tones. Much like raisins. The booze is apparent, which is very much expected from this huge quad.

M: Stingy from the carbonation and booze. Thick and dry.

O: Had to close my eyes a few times while drinking this one. It practically set off fireworks in my brain. The very sweet malts balanced well with the incredible Belgian yeast. The booze helped me feel like I was enjoying the same brew that some Trappists were drinking a few centuries ago. 10/10 will drink again.

Poured into a Saint Somewhere wine-style glass. Label says Best Before End 30.01.2018

A- Pours a mostly opaque medium brown color with a ΒΌ inch head that retains a bit before soon becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a big swirl of surface foam.

S- Soft aroma of caramel and toasted malt. Also a hint of spice and banana.

T- Flavor is much like the aroma with some toasted malt and sweetness. Very mild hop taste balances well against the sugars and alcohol. Speaking of alcohol, it's a tad hot and there's also some mild oxidation flavors of wet cardboard. Gets better as it warms

M- A bit stingy from the alcohol and syrupy. Medium-low carbonation and a full body.

O- One of the top contenders among quads but it doesn't quite drive it home as well as La Trappe or Pannepot IMO.
