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.

mike_77 (2963) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2009 Pours a muddy brown colour with a thin, quickly disappearing head. Aroma is slightly medicinal and has a scent of dried fruits. Texture is thin, carbonation on the tongue is intense. Some spice, cloves and dry sherry flavours come through.

saxo (13796) - HÝjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2005
33cl bottle. Hazy dark brown/ruby beer with thick lasting beige tight head. Lots of chocolate and darkish fruits. Really lovely dubbel, a cut above the others. Not as intense as the 8 or 10 but still a class beer.

Habanero (2436) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2005 Rather little beige head - quickly disappearing. Ruby-brown colour. Wonderfull fruity aroma with plums and peaches. Flavour of roasted caramel and malt. Some sweet and bitter aftertaste.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - OCT 27, 2005
Rochefort 6 has a pleasent aroma. A complex mixture of malt, spice, and alcohol. The color is a nice rich red with a long lasting light brown head. There are some wisps of lacing. The taste is both malty and slightly fruity. Rochefortís finish is nice and smooth.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2005
Clear, deep red, nice foamy head. Awesome aroma - nutmeg, allspice, eucalyptus, stewed toffee maltiness, cookie dough, orange rind, cider mulled with cinnamon. Seems to be lacking malt - itís probably a bit worse for wear from the journey. Toasty, biscuity malt before quite a dry, chalky, slightly roasty and bitter, even soapy finish. Thereís just not that much going on beforehand. A bit too light and fizzy, but very good nonetheless. Tasted a fair bit maltier in Belgium.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2005
Bottle @ Prespa. Plum, dark fruit, port/whiskey, brown sugar and vinous notes in the nose. Flavor is cherries, a bit of funk, brown sugar, grapes, slight alcohol burn in a chocolate finish.

larsam (127) - Southampton, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2005
Dark brown with creamy head. Rich aroma with banana, peach, plums and candy. Complex flavour with toffee, chocolate and dried fruits. Slightly thin, perhaps because it is impossible not to compare with no 10.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2005
Red-brown hazy colour. The aroma is nutty and vinous. The flavor is little bitter and malty. Also a hint from yeast. There is lots of flakes from yeast in it. To much carbondioxide! In my taste, a bad Belgian trappist!

CaptKirk (175) - Hephzibah, Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Nice deep red in color with a sweet smell from the pour. A very smooth and well rounded beer to enjoy just relaxing. Not as strong in alcohol as itís brother 8 and 10, but a nice beer that is worthy of a try.
