A: The beer pours a dark muddy brown with a thick tan head that quickly fades. No lace is left on the glass.

S: I am getting a sweet grape smell with some raisin and plum, a little bit of alcohol and even some sweet sugary scent.

T: Where to start... Now it taste a lot like figs, a little bit of raisin and little bit of other dark fruits that I cant exactly pin point.

M: The beer is pretty smooth with a nice bit of crispness on the back of the throat and goes down with ease.

O: I reviewed this beer a year ago and wasnt too fond of it, but now that my palate has matured, this beer truly shines and I love this beer.

Finally decided to sit down and review this phenomenal brew, though I have had it many times prior to this one. Poured into a tulip. Best by 16 Feb 2016.

Pours a deep mahogany brown that is highlighted by ruby and garnet hues in the light. The head reaches about an inch before it quickly subsides to a thin film. Spotty and thick bands of lace grace the sides of my glass.

Aromas and flavor are tops for the quads that I have enjoyed. Raisins, dates, toffee, caramel, and rich chocolatey undertones are the main characteristics here. The flavor follows suit and adds some warm alcohol, a hint of sherry-like oxidation that just enhances the flavor. There are also some sweet cherry notes to round this out.

Medium-thick texture along with some prickly carbonation. This is definitely one of the best quads out there, if not THE best. I will have to drink a bottle of Pannepot to decide which is tops...

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

Poured into a snifter

Appearance: opaque, coffee brown, tan, one finger head that lingers. Great lacing

Smell: malts rush in with chocolate in their wake. Belgian yeast and dark fruits bring up the rear.

Taste: Chocolate dominates with Belgian yeast sliding in for a very smooth finish. Molasses lingers on the tongue. Didn't really taste the alcohol, but I knew it was there when my head began to fog up.

Mouthfeel: medium; chewy. Heavy carbonation. Love to let this one sit on the tongue and gestate.

Overall: A bit pricey, but an immaculate sipping beer. Perfect for those cold nights. Glad I finally got to try this highly ranked masterpiece.

Rochefort 10 is an amazing quad. Pours a deep brown with a creamy head and lacing. Smells of raisins, figs, caramel; sure enough, those tastes blend harmoniously with malt and pleasant spiciness. This is rich stuff. Mouthfeel gets a 5 - can't improve on this. If you don't have fancy beer glasses at home, use a nice wine glass. This is tops.
