3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
