Brasserie de Rochefort Trappistes Rochefort 10, 11.3% ABV, 27 IBU. Pours medium viscosity and very dark brown, with a 3 finger tan head that left little lacing. Nose is malty, fruity, and fresh, taste is sweet malt and bread, a bit of alcohol taste, with almost no bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel with perfect carbonation and extremely smooth. overall outstanding, a new beer for my top 10 list.

L: Dark mahogany with a 2.5 finger head (even with a very gentle pour) consisting of large bubbles.
S: Wine, dark fruits, and a hint of alcohol
T: The alcohol is definitely apparent but not at all in a bad way. Wine, dark fruits, some sweet notes, and finishes very dry with little after taste if any
F: Oh man is this smooth. The feel is essentially perfect for me. A very high alcohol beer going down like nothing. The carbonation feels great as well. Even though the alcohol is apparent in the flavor, it's barely noticeable in feel.
O: This is my first Belgian Quad and I fell in love. I love wine and this very much reminds me of it. I have nothing to compare it too since I've never had a Quad before, but I can vouch for it being an incredible brew.

Look is a very dark, rich color. Poured from a 330ml bottle into an ale glass at cellar temperature. Nice thick, rich bubbly light brown head.
Smell was faint raisin subtle fruity sweetness. Caramel even. Very pleasant, but the aroma was somewhat hard to detect, but its there.The alcohol smell took a slight precedence. Not a bad thing at all. It was not a cheap rubbing alcohol type smell whatsoever that i have found in some beers. Thin lace on the glass as i drank it down.
Taste is just as you would expect from the smell. Very subtle caramel/ chocolate overtones with a nice balance of dark fruit. Not too strong, but you know its there.
The finish is somewhat malty, but clear and clean, drinks like a fine wine almost.
Mouth feel is perfect. Well balanced and smooth. Mild carbonation. It all comes together just right.

This beer is not to be consumed ice cold of course, but I found it rather good at room temperature as well. Excellent to drink while having Long hookah smoke session.
Definitely a beer i woukd keep on hand at all times.

I probably should not rate this style as my palate doesn't agree with it so I find my ratings to always be on the low side but it is what it is. Its how I feel about the brew. Its pours a nice dark color as you would expect a quad to but the flavor is just not there for me. If you like Belgian Quads by all means give this a shot, its just not for me.

I am simply overwhelmed by just how great this beer is. Great slightly hazy dark brown in the glass with a great head that didn't last. Tons of complex flavors...far too many for me to list but they all formed quite a symphony that left me floored. The alcohol is there but is buried under so many flavors that it barely makes an appearance on this stage. A world class, and simply wonderful beer.

The beer is a very dark brown with a foamy head that thinned out and dissipated rather quickly. Strong alcohol smell with raisins and plums. Get sweet and tarty aromas. The beer follows the nose pretty well. Tastes like a whiskey with dark fruits infused. The sweetness of the fruits helps hinder the bite of this high ABV. Medium bodied and nice level of carbonation. Overall this is a good beer just not my favorite style all the time. Wish there might have been a little more punch in the flavor.

Dark brown color, thick head. Slightly sweet aroma. Very smooth and buttery mouthfeel, tastes of chocolate and molasses, with a moderately bitter finish. High alcohol content (11.3% ABV), which is very noticeable and is a bit overpowering.
