COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer, the oldest of the three Rochefort Trappist beers, has the reddish colour of autumn leaves, a soft body and an earthy, herbal palate (a hint of Darjeeling tea), which develops into a deep fruitiness.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2006
330ml bottle. Cloudy dark Copper color with full off white head. Malty aroma and taste with bitter after taste. The 8 and the 10 are alot better!!!! There is not much to this one.

ogivlado (5672) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 6, 2006
Bottled(330ml). -How come that this beer is (so) bad and the rest of two are great? Nice murky reddish/brown coloured, medium sized pale brown head, slightly fruity nose. Aroma is malty and fruity with notes of toffee and cocoa, few metallic hints. Quite weak and big disappointment in comparison with other two.

Tasted on tap in a private room at Rochefort in Belgium.....OK, fine! 12oz bottle. The darkest dubbel Ive seen. Aroma and flavor are fruity with noticable malt, caramel, raisin, fig, etc. A nice bitter finish as well. Just terrific.

KLandon (6) - St. Catharines, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2006 does not count
Reddish in colour with a fruity aroma. It tastes of malt vinegar but in a good way. A great way, in fact. A creamy white head and a fruity finish. I totally dig.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2007 What a delightful beer. I was looking for Rochefort Trappistes 10 and grabbed 6 in error. Believe me it was no error. The head looked like an off white bowl of whipping cream and lasted for quite some time. Great fruity spicy flavor. Bright and sweet A really great flavor. Next time I must be sure to get 10. If it is a much better as many say I may just think I died and went to heaven

Pours a nice browns with a thick white head. Sublte sweetness and strong spice in the aroma. Nice bready, yeastiness in the flavor. Dried fruits, figs, brown sugar. Bubbly on the palate. Very good dubbel.

From bottle. Pours a murky brown with hints of orange. Thin ring of tan foam around the edge. Brown sugar malts abound in the nose with hints of dark fruits. Flavor follows with a noticeable bitterness throughout. Palate is on the thin side.
