A very good beer. Pours a cloudy brown with an off white head. Nice aroma, you can smell the yeast, fruit, and caramel. Sweet flavor from the caramel. Good balance with the spices and the fruit as well. Good stuff.

Ruddy brown, high carb head that quickly vanished. Yeasty and fruity. Zesty. Something almost creamy in it that I can’t put my finger on. Better than the last time I tasted it.

1.5 years old bottle. Dark murky brown, fizzy beige head. Dry and fruity nose, figs, some malts and soft spices. Flavor is more of the same, dark fruits and spices. Peppery and nicely hopped, dry finish. Medium bodied, soft palate. Fruity and interesting. I love all them Rocheforts.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bit of hazy pour and very bubbly. Light brown with a thick head. Very fruity aroma. Lots of apples; it smells almost like cider. Lots of malt and grain with a touch of oaky vanilla. Hearty yeasty bread flavor. The intense apples in the aroma are much more subtle in the flavor. Its there, but not overpowering. Malty with a touch of hops to finish. Alcohol is hidden well. A very good dubbel!

Rochefort 6 is lovely nectar that that pours dark brown with amber hues with a modest off white head. The aroma is fruity and woody with a hint of alcohol esters. The flavor is sweet and malty with woody notes and fruits like raisons, white grapes, prune and dried cherries popping in and out. It has a medium body and lively carbonation. The texture is smooth and coats the tongue. I really enjoyed this outstanding trappistes beer.
