Best beer I have ever had! Tried it at a Belgian Beer Festival this past week. I know why everyone wanted a sample once the bottle was opened

ARH (663) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2015
330 mL bottle poured into a goblet. The aroma is initially a bright cherrywood note with a touch of smokiness and a light resin quality. This aroma blends into a port wine note consisting of an alcohol touch with fruity flare - tart cherry, plum, strawberry, and a light banana note - with undertones of buttery pie crust and brown sugar. It’s a murky opaque dark cherry brown with a dense foam, tan head that retains a medium-thick ring and a solid, soft foam surface, and leaves only a light, but dense wisp, lacing on the glass. The taste is a medium high bittersweet port wine. The texture is thick and oily with an abundant fuzzy carbonation to smooth things out. The body is full with lots of plum and raisin notes as well as a woody feel. There’s a mellow and smooth wine warmth at the finish with toffee, sweet cherry, and plum flavors. The aftertaste is dry and clean with a toffee and spice touch.

Appearance: dark beer with a nice off-white head. Aroma: bitter, malt, dark fruits and a bit of coffee/chocolate. Taste: very deep with lots of different flavors. Starts slightly bitter and grows to a sweet dark fruit.

J’ai beau en goûter d’autres très bonnes, la rochefort 10 reste pour moi le top du top, qui convient en beaucoup de circonstances.

Bottle. Pours Hazy dark chestnutt brown with particles in suspension and a medium sized frothy tan head. Aroma of caramel, spices and ripe fruit. Taste is red fruit, caramel and spices latching on. Medium to full bodied. creamy texture. Really good.

matbli (60) - Poznań, POLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle 330ml, pours almost clear hazelnut brown with some yeast and hop particles swiming in it. Creamy colored head reduces fast to a nice lacing. Strongly sparkling. Sweet aroma of caramel, red fruits, nuts and biscuits. Noticable also some basement notes. In taste also a lot of sweetness with some light background bitterness. The beer is full bodied with a lot very fruitty character and some spicy aftertaste that reminds me of black pepper. Dry with a tart finish. Very nice one eventhough I’m not a big fan of the belgian style.

2/22 Bottle - Incredible beer! Very nice dark brown pour, nice head, very thick texture. Nice fruit and caramel smell. Excellent tasting beer, very nice strong kick going down. Quadrupels are among my favorite beers, and this one was one of the best I have ever had. Highly recommended!!!

Bottle. Tan frothy head, diminishing but leaving a very thin lasting layer. Aroma is complex and intense. A lot of ripe fruit, dark fruit and prune with some toasted malts tinge.Taste is also complex and rich, plenty of dried fruit flavours (prune, plum and raisin) with caramel and toasted malt tinge. Longing ripe fruit acidity aftertaste.

Beardbeerman (197) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
Pours a dark amber, cola-like robe topped by a fluffy tanned head showing great retention and lacing capacities. The nose is sweet, fruity, gives notes of chocolate, plums, figs, and salted caramel. The taste is also sweet but not overwhelming. The fruitiness is dominant with the figs and plums upfront and sweet chocolate in the back. The body is full but very cloud-like all at once. Some expanding booze comes through the back of the palate. This beer is complex and enjoyable. A perfect addition to any cellar, you can let it age a few years to increase its flavor spectrum. Cheers!
