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.

A big thanks to BaconIsLife for gifting this to me recently.

A: Pours a murky brown with hints of red..mahogany, I guess. Just about a finger of off-white to tan head, dense. Some light, soapy lacing and a cap that's just a thinner version of the original head..pretty dense for a cap.

S: Oh boy. Rich caramel, plum, fig, raisin, clove, slightly peppery. Very nice.

T: Bready, caramel, dark fruits mentioned in the smell, molasses, clove, banana maybe...slighty smokey in the finish. Very, very tasty.

M: Slightly chewy with a hint of alcohol burn. Warming.

O: This is an excellent, delicious beer and one that I'm glad is available locally. The alcohol is pretty understaded so this is very drinkable and could get you in trouble if not careful. I'll buy this again, no doubt about it. Thanks Tyler..you're a real doll.

The quadrupel exits the small bottle with little fanfare. No popping cork or towering head here. As the beer settles into the snifter-inspired vessel, a dark smooth liquid emerges with a decent cap of foam. The color of the beer is dark chestnut brown. After allowing the brew to catch its breath the aroma is unmistakable. The alcohol is certainly noticeable, but it is mitigated by so many other things: burnt sugar, prunes, cloves, pear, chocolate. The complexity is demonstrated in the waves of the aroma. These characteristics come alive on the palate. The beer is much nimbler than expect and even manages some prickly carbonation. A bitterness pervades the entire experience providing balance to this Behemoth. The wonderfully melded components provide a deep rich flavor that is distinct and complex.
