Out of an 11.2 oz. bottle from Market Street (thank you very much) I pour into my favorite Chimay glass about 3/4 of the bottle. It yields a nice quad style dark amber body and an outstanding near-white head. First time encounter gives a tropical fruit and banana nose. Beam me up Scotty. The taste is exquisite, dark fruit, malt, a light bitterness. A red letter day. Two great tastings today. If I can find this again I will partake again, price be damned. What is it about quadrupels?

Gran cerveza trapista. Quizs esperaba un poco ms de ella, an as una cerveza de alto nivel. Bebida en copa a partir de una botella de 33 cl. Un aroma diferente, no demasiado intenso pero agradable, apariencia oscura, color chocolate con una corona de espesa espuma de color beige que se mantiene constante durante toda la toma. Un sabor intenso y agradable que combina lo amargo con lo dulce y un paladar al mismo nivel.

(330 ml bottle) Pours a murky light brown complexion with thin but persistent head. Fresh bread and prune aroma. The flavor is a perfect balance of Belgian malt and yeast with prune and fig. ABV is very well hidden. Excellent.

Birra ambrato/marrone. Schiuma colore bianco sporco, fine, cremosa e poco persistente. Allolfatto sentori di banana, pera, toffee. Al palato note di caramello, legno, toffe, fruttacsecca, dolce. Lalcol so sente ma non disturba anzi le da carattere. Una grande birra da conversazione.

Lekko przegazowane. Zapach mało intensywny zbożowy. W smaku zupełnie płaskie. Wręcz wytrawne. Może trafiłem na złą butelkę, bo piwo ktre 6 piłem jest słabe. Mam nadzieję, że rochefort 10 ktry czeka 6w kolejce będzie lepszy

Frothy beige head soon left a skim on reddish brown coloured, finely effervescent body. Dark fruits, malt & demerara aroma. Feels a bit thin. Smooth & tingly on the palate. Taste is similar to aroma with caramel, dark spirit, malt, toffee & dark fruits.

Nice deep dark brown opaque pour with foamy off-white head disappearing super fast. Aroma of dark fruit, alcohol, molasses and cinnamon/spice. Full mouthfeel, chewy and heavy on the booze. Figs, plums and raisins, oh yeah. A Belgian that doesnt mess around and worth the rep it gets.

Bottle at home. This is the first of the 3 beers from Brasserie Rochefort, which I have tried. Pours reddish brown with minimal head. Sweet malts, fruit, bread, caramel, yeast. Medium carbonation. Medium body, slight alcohol presence, but not bothersome. Very good.

Barwa ciemny bursztyn z obfitą super drobną pianą. Aromat czerwonych owocw, marcepan, likierowość i paloność. W smaku słodki jakby likier, ciemne owoce, marcepan i mid gryczany. Wszystko takie bardzo dojrzałe w połączeniu. Alko praktycznie niewyczuwalne. Mocno grzeje w przełyk. Kosmiczne piwo.

Bottle 33cl. Caramel dominates the aroma. Dried fruits, raisins, plums. Poured red brown, quickly fading head. Taste had a large sweetness to it, caramelised fruits, liquor. Aftertaste has something rum-like.

Bottle at t Brugs Beerjte. Commonshawn, rosskyle, samalito, and dubtully. Rochefort glass. Deep dark cherry wood color with a plentiful white head. Nose is mostly malty with dark fruit (raisin) present. Taste is a little milder than the 8 or 10 but still sports a welcomed balance of malt and dark fruits. There is a pleasant toffee and caramel quality. It reminds me of a traditional dubbel but its of a high quality. Sweetness comes through but not to the point of ruining the effort. Completed the Rochefort cycle today and very proud of it.

Bottle at Cambrinus with commonshawn, rosskyle, dubtully, and samalito. You can?t beat this perfect glassware. Deep plum color with an off white head. Looks luxurious. Nose is dark sugar and deep fruity elements. Some mild chocolate. Taste is crazy delicious with a complex dark fruit quality and a malty characteristic. Chocolate and caramel play really well with a depth of fruit notes. Big and assertive without overwhelming the overall flavor. I need more of this as soon as possible.

Bottle at Cafe Vlissinghe in Bruges. Beautiful almost amber or mahogany color. An off white eggshell head. Aroma of a faint chocolate with caramel and toffee. Plenty of dark fruit characteristics...raisins and plums. Taste is rich and full of traditional Belgian dark fruit elements. Caramel and maybe a little chocolate. Mouthfeel is nearly perfect...light bite in the middle with a soft, fill finish. Intoxicating beverage. One of the best.

Dark brown colour with a thick lasting one-finger beige head. Deep aroma of cane sugar, dark fruits and buttery biscuits. Flavor is big on Christmas spices, rum, clove in the finish, lots of alcohol, but not unpleasantly. Medium carbonation, quite a bit of hoppiness. The big alcohol presence makes R10 a definite sipper.

Biała, bardzo gęsta i zostawiająca wysoki lacing piana. Ciemno-złota barwa. W aromacie dużo ciemnych owocw i owocw w ogle - śliwka, pomarańcza, porzeczka, nawet lekka cytryna. Nuty bardzo zbite ze sobą. Trochę przyprawowości. W smaku słodkie, likierowe, owocowe, przyprawowe. Rozgrzewające. Bardzo smaczne. Świetnie zbalansowane.

Looks red/brown like tea, little or no head. Left sediment in the bottom of the bottle for the first half than dropped it in the remaining beer. Restrained nose of malts fruits and bread. Mouthfeel moderate to lively and warming The dried fruity notes of sultanas blend malt hints of caramel along with a light spiciness. There is a lingering fruitiness which is pleasant. With the sediment in it was slightly more earthy. Nice but I had hoped for a little more.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0.33 l bottle. Shared with Vinja 666 and Nikola. Had this one before, but didnt rate. Murky amber, small off-white head. Dry fruits, apricot, caramel, dusty, yeast, light nuts. Sweet, light alcohol bite. Medium body, creamy texture, light alcohol presence, medium aromatic finish. It is a beer without major flaws, but not very impressive.

I had higher expectations for this due to the successful number 6. I was a bit let down. Very dry and bitter and missing the desired and expected complexity. I am glad I tried it and have a spare bottle on hand to give it another chance.

Very complex and delicious. Often I find Belgian yeast to be somewhat distractingly earthy, but here, while present, was nicely balanced by the hops and malt. Well carbonated and nuanced; there was something new in each sip.

Kolor ciemno brązowy z przepiękną beżową pianą. W aromacie nuty ciemnych owocw i paloność. Delikatnie swoją obecność akcentuje marcepan W tle likierowe nuty alkoholu. Smak to szlachetne nuty alkoholowe, przypominających, likiery, nalewki. Pźniej ciemne owoce, marcepan. Alkohol jest nieco wyczuwalny, ma zdecydowanie szlachetną formę, rozgrzewa, dodaje charakteru ale nie odrzuca. Nasycenie średnie w kierunku do niskiego, mi zdecydowanie odpowiada.

This bottle had been knocking around in my garage for a while, so I finally took the plunge and didn't regret it. Rich fruit cake aroma wafts from a dark nut brown beer. Taste is rich with a super palate of raisins, digs and winter fruit cake. A one to sip and savour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
