3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Aroma and appearance were my two favorite aspects of this brew. Beautiful fluffy beige head with phenomenal lacing throughout an entire Trappist glass. Big nose of bananas, cinnamon, some pear, licorice and caramel. I expected more out of the flavor, I was wishing it would live up to the aroma. Still excellent, but quite thin and not much lasting flavor on the palate at all. Alcohol finish is not as subtle as the 10 or 8, but got better as it warmed. Would prefer those over the 6, but you really cant go wrong with any of the Rocheforts

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very hazy deep brownish red color. Head is a thick white that fades quickly. Aroma is of dark fruit, light chcolate and some floral hop make an appearance. Taste is of dark fruit, some tart grapes, belgian spice, and light stale hops. The alcohol is more apparent then the eight or ten but this is still an awesome brew. Rochefort always delivers great complexities and an awesome mouthfeel. Carbonation is high but fits well. I’m glad the nearest liqour store that carries it is 2 hours away.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark amber color, with a little head that fails quickly. Nice smooth falvor, with a short lived aftertaste. A lot of particulate in the glass.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of my new favorites, and i’ve yet to try the #8 or 10. The aroma is sweet and fruity with notes of alcohol. Color is deep dark honey brown color. Fruity chocolaty, caramelly flavor, bit of spice, sweet at the start. You can see and feel the carbination, but i don’t mind that in beer as most do.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light brown color with lots of fizzy head. Sweet malt smell and similar body. Sweet dandy sugar and malt with faint apple. Massive carbonation that knocked down the beers overall rating.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pretty much a brown pour, maybe some rust, a bit hazy with small particles of yeast in the bottom, creamy tan head with fair lacing, mix of nut, sour and brown sugar odor, soft carbonation, oily to creamy texture, average duration. Hint of raison initial taste, doughy yeast, a bit of grain like malt flavor and a slight bitter finish. I’ve been unlucky at rating at the right temperature so this is my best attempt. I prefer the 8 to the 6 despite being a dubbel fan , but nonetheless a great beer Rochefort makes some of the best.
