A- dark brown in appearance with a tan head. Some visible sediment.

S- brown sugar, alcohol, raisins, Cherries.

T- alcohol taste is very present but is complimented by a rich malty flavor. Almost a cola-ish aftertaste. Subtle dried fruits and molasses.

M- Smooth and creamy with nice carbonation. Alcohol taste coats tongue and lingers.

O- This is a great quad. I am happy that I found a bottle of this. It has a very nice complex flavor and is very drinkable.

Bottle was cellared for a year.

A: Deep red with a finger and a half of head that quickly dissapeared to nest to nothing left a tiny bit of lacing on the glass. Some tiny bubbles but other

S: Cherries, dried fruits (raisins, prunes) no hint of alcohol at all

T: Sweet up front, follows the smell - Cherries, prunes, hint of chocolate. Again, the alcohol seems to be hiding (but I can definitely feel it working)

M: Smooth with high carbonation. Those tiny bubbles dance in your mouth and are gone in an instant.

Overall: I love this beer. I love it when it's new. I love it more when it's aged. I'm so glad that I aged this, but sad I don't have another one aging for longer to see how it changes.

After having the Rochefort 6 and 8 recently, I finally gave the 10 a go. I tend to find Quads a bit too strong for my taste but after having this one, I think it's safe to say that the characteristics of the beer itself outweigh any of the negatives that too much booze brings to the table. This was wonderful to drink and may have been the strongest beer that I've ever enjoyed at a normal pace!

This poured quite cloudy with a plum hue and a nice, frothy head. There was a bit of sediment too and an overwhelming boozy aspect to the aroma. Most of the flavors were in the taste, accordingly, with fig, apricot, and a bit of candied sugar all melding together quite nicely. As the beer warmed up and I worked my way throughout the contents of my pint glass, this got better and better. By the time I reached the bottom, the strong and solid taste of this came through, with sweet fruit dominating over the alcohol.

Although this wasn't the most appealing beer up front, this was wonderful to enjoy once the strength of it receded a bit. Beers don't get much more classic than this but that doesn't mean that this is for everyone. I'm not a huge fan of Quadrupels but I can see why this is so popular on here. What this lacked in flash, it more than made up for with the array of dark fruits and perfect body I enjoyed here. Give it time to warm up and most likely, you'll warm up to this as well.

A- Dark dark brown on the verge of black. One finger tan head. Moderate head retention and pretty good even lacing.

S- Spicy yeast and some booze. Sweet dark fruit (mostly cherry) character and some earthy tones. The yeast is the overwhelming aspect of the aroma, but it is pretty solid overall.

T- Awesome. Spicy yeast, rich dark fruit (lots of cherry and raisins), bold oaky characteristics and some booze. There is a wonderful wine-like flavor to this beer. It has an abundance of dark fruit flavors with oak barrel and even some tannins. Really amazingly complex taste. So deep.

M- Smooth. Pretty highly carbonated, but it goes well with the flavor.

O- Exceptional beer. Really, really phenomenal. There isn't much I can say about this beer that hasn't already been said, so suffice it to say that I agree with most of the good stuff.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 11.2oz glass into a chalice.
A: Very dark, hazy brown with a 1-finger head that slowly falls to a 1/8" head that lingers for a long time.
S: Unique aroma of black licorice, brown sugar, figs, and tropical melon.
T: Complex. Sweet dried fruit, rich sweet malt, some spice/yeast to round things out. Possibly the most balanced Quad I've had to date.
M: Silky smooth, medium-bodied. Enjoyable. Over 11% abv but you can't taste it at all- perfectly integrated.
O: This is one to just sip slowly and ponder while you do so. Very enjoyable and very well made.

A: pours an opaque black brown, with some floaties in it, in to a Brewers Art goblet with a finger of tan head that hangs around for a long time and leaves beautiful lacing.

S: leather, sweet fruits, figs, grapes, plums, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, apples.

T: mirrors the nose well. The complex sweetness is amazing; from fruits like plums, apples and dates to sugary sweetness like caramel, candi sugar and dark brown sugar. There is some spice that balances it beautifully.

MF: the spice adds astringency, its got a great medium body with a lite chewy-ness and good lite carbonation.

O: I do not have enough good things to say about this beer, easily my favorite quad and one of my top beers.
