From notes on 11/19/11:
Drink by: 02/16/16; Poured in a snifter.

A - Very dark, murky brown in color with a slight garnet hue; Two inches of light tan, frothy, finely carbonated head that leaves some lacing around the glass; Head has pretty nice retention

S - I pull out new aromas with each sniff - awesome! Notes of dark fruits like raisins and plums, cherries, pepper, toast, dark chocolate, molasses, cloves, and grapes; Very faint alcohol burn in the nose

T - Big, rich flavor here with lots of dark fruits up front, followed by warmth from the alcohol and a peppery taste; Afterwards, I get more dark fruits with molasses, sugar, caramel, toast, grapes and a little tartness; Flavors stay with you long after the sip, and they're very pleasant

M - Full bodied with low, but zesty carbonation that tingles the tongue; Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel; Slight tart and dark fruity coat left in the mouth, leaving it feeling pretty dry; Just a small hint of alcohol taste, but the warmth is much more noticeable

O - Rochefort 10 was my first ever Quad, and I'm truly convinced that it's one of the best beers I've had to date. The taste and mouthfeel of this beer seem perfect to me, making it very challenging to sip this at an appropriate pace. The smell may be a bit on the light side, but it's still very nice, with all aromas coming together harmoniously. Definitely take your time with this beer and enjoy the complexity that it brings. I can't wait to have some more of this beer in the future, and also try other offerings in this style.

I poured the 330ml bottle into my DFH snifter glass to find a nice heavy & hazy dark brown body with an off white one inch head. I really liked the way this one looked. The aroma was nice with a lot dried fruits dominated by plums and figs. The taste is just exceptional, a little more sweet than the aroma would lead you to believe and the alcohol is very well hidden. The mouthfeel is great, a bit on the heavy side but goes down smooth and very sticky. Overall a fantastic beer I don't know what else to say that hasn't already been said. Defiantly going to be picking this one for special occasions in the future.

One of the best beers I've quaffed to date. No trappist glass on hand so poured into old reliable, aka my Delirium tulip glass, so it really poofed out the head. It's all there - sugar, rummy raisin - but no sticky mouth, nothing lingering that shouldn't linger. It's a boozy beer but one that makes you feel like you can drink a few in one sitting. (You probably shouldn't.) An adult beer. I nursed this on its own while playing Super Mario Bros with my niece and nephew but could easily pair this with beef stew. An all-time fave.
