A - dark mahogany brown with a thin cap of brown head that quickly disappeared.

S - Brown sugar, bread, raisins, fruit, vanilla bean, coffee.

T - Malty and sweet, bready, amazingly smooth, alcohol level is virtually undetectable, but warms your soul as you get to the middle of the brew. Slight smokey flavor.

O - This is an amazing brew and is a sipper. I'd choose this to celebrate a special occasion. I tried one fresh and have one aging that I'll try in a year. Looking forward to comparing the notes.

330 ml bottle poured into a Chimay chalice.

A- Pitch-brown with some yeast sediment floating around. Nice one finger light tan head, stays put the entire drink. Speckles of lacing appear on the glass.

S- Chocolatey caramel-covered fruit/cherry.

T- Spiced caramel with a subtle chocolate taste. Sweet and smooth.

M- Rich and full bodied, but so smooth and creamy. Alcohol is not very detectable ini taste or feel.

O- Delicious. Sweet, flavorful, and creamy. Beautifully crafted.

A- Pours a dark brown/deep cola color. A very underwhelming 1 finger light brown head rises and then quickly fades away to nothing. Zero retention and lacing. Color is nice, but very shocked by the lack of head and retention based on the wonderful appearance of Rochefort 8

S- Rich, malty sweetness. Moderate esters of dried fruits- dark cherries, blackberries, and plum. Slightest hint of chocolate. Not the spice I detected in 8. More malt and alcohol in the nose on this one.

T- Huge, complex, dark, robust flavor. Relatively disappointed up to this point, but the taste kicks it up a notch. One of those "oh my" beers when it hits your lips. Tons of fruity sweet malt upfront that is balanced out by the phenols and alcohol, accompanied by a terrific level of dry bitterness. Remains smooth throughout.

M- Despite the weak head, the carbonation remains intact and makes for moderate drinkability. Near full body with full flavor. Dry from the sip. Alcohol is noticeable, but refrains from dominating the palate.

O- Don't get me wrong, this is a fantastic beer, but a little more flawed imo than Rochefort 8. 10 does have a more intense flavor profile though. Simply put, one of the most flavorful beers I've had to date. I would still lean Westy 12 for this style, but this is a very impressive beer in its own right.

No born on date
$6.49 for 11.2 oz bottle
