Good grief... This beer was enough to make me want to finally sign up for this site if that means anything. As good as sex... Aroma: Very deep, chocolaty, malty heavy smell. A hint of fruitiness but not very much. Appearance: A dark but ever so slightly opaque look... caramel and chocolate look for sure with about 55% light transfer. Taste: One word... WOW. As i said this beer is what made me sign up on this site... i feel i need to tell the whole world! It is a heavy COMPLEX burst of tasty flavors. I cannot describe it; just try it yourself. Redefines a quad for sure. Palate: Easy to drink with very little taste of the potent 11.3% ABV that is in there. It flows and fizzes like it was made specifically for me. Overall: The best beer i have had yet... i will be blown away if i come across another that is better/more enjoyable than this brew. You NEED to try this one for sure.

mmmbeer (1235) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2014
11.2 oz bottle served in a shaker- poured a heavily murky darkened to near black brown in color when held to a light source, medium carbonation, 3mm light tan head that was quite bubbly but didn’t fade away into oblivion because of it. Aroma of figs, plums, pears, brown sugar- quite a small sample to pick out because there are more. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt doesn’t need to be overpowering because various dark fruit sensations with toffee dominate it, middle has a bite of pepper and cumin, finish is slightly drying. Alcohol cannot be noticed at all. Just right for a pick me up!

Rochefort 10 pours dark brown with a red hue. The head is beige and frothy and sustains itself well for 11.3% ABV.
The nose is big and incrediby complex; it includes brown cane sugar, caramel, baked apple, pear, figs, blackcurrant, milk chocolate, biscuit, butterscotch, and bright bubblegum notes and even a hint of fruity ginjoko. The bouquet is not only as dark as you would expect, but is balanced with bright aromas at the same time. Incredible.
On the palate, the muted sugar counterbalance the heavy flavors up front, which include prunes, caramel, and dark bread crust, before the roastiness and bitterness from the hops invigorate the mid-palate. Peppery spiciness and warming alcohol conclude each mouthful with a dry finish, and leaves dark fruits and dark bread behind.
A deeply complex brew.

RCx240 (20) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Pours a rich, chocolaty brown with a vigorous beige head, which dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, toast, plum, licorice, and raisin. In terms of taste, there’s caramel, toast, plum, and chocolate, with a slightly bitter finish and the warming sensation you’d expect of a beer this strong. Full bodied, rich, creamy, and lively carbonation. very nice.

Dark mahogany pour. Beautiful Large thick creamy frothy lasting beige head. Complex malty, yeasty, and dark fruity. Lighter full body. Soft. Luscious and creamy. Pleasant spiciness. Welcomed alcohol warmth. Wonderful balance. One of the benchmarks of what beer can be.

0,33 pullo@Kaisla Hki. Syvän ruskea, samea. Selkeä vaahto. Tuoksu kevyt maltainen, baarin keittiön rasvan haju sotkee oluen aromeja. Maku täyteläisen hedelmäinen, alkoholi tuntuu vahvasti.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Mjukt sammetslen skum. Smak av russin, farinsocker. Svårt att plocka in dofter och smaker men helt underbar.
