This smells great - caramel and something else. Looks nice too. Flavor faintly reminds me of Doppelsticke, which I love. The finish is just a little faint, but a stellar beer. Of course, the price reflects that.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 3rd attempt with this beer and I still struggle with it. Pours a muddy brown colour. Aroma is strong with over boiled peas, sweet fruits like figs. Flavour is sweet with figgy dried fruits. Lacking in depth and overall a touch too sweet. Initially the carbonation is too strong. It needs to sit for 10 minutes before drinking.

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.

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.

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. Rochefort’s 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 - it’s probably a bit worse for wear from the journey. Toasty, biscuity malt before quite a dry, chalky, slightly roasty and bitter, even soapy finish. There’s just not that much going on beforehand. A bit too light and fizzy, but very good nonetheless. Tasted a fair bit maltier in Belgium.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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 it’s brother 8 and 10, but a nice beer that is worthy of a try.
