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.

La Bière Rochefort 6 est une bière trappiste à fermentation haute, conçue par les brasseurs de l' Abbaye Notre Dame de St Remy à St Remy les Rochefort (Belgique). D'une couleur rouge-brunâtre typique des vieux vins de Bourgogne, la bière est limpide et repose sur un lit de levures. Sa saturation est assez forte, présentant une mousse peu serrée et de durée moyenne. Son arôme pénétrant offre des notes épicées ainsi que des tons de levure aromatiques et profonds. On peut noter une dominante malt - caramel. A la dégustation, l'attaque est franche et légèrement piquante, la saveur est à la fois douce, ronde et forte, et offre une bouche pleine à l'étalement assez long remontant en fin de bouche avec une légère âcreté et une amertume équilibrée, l'amertume étant la plus nette des 3 bières de l'Abbaye de Rochefort. Le corps s'affirme dans sa plénitude maltée et fruitée alors que quelques tons épicés et piquants viennent nous appeler à une prochaine gorgée. Une bière belge de grande qualité idéale pour s'initier ou se faire plaisir. APPARENCE Robe marron relativement claire et mousse beige ARÔME Nez fruité et houblonné (raisin, caramel, épices) GOÛT Equilibre entre sucre et amertume

islay (2185) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 27, 2016
11.2 oz. bottle, consumed on 2-27-16. “Best before end: L.24.07.2019.” I assume that’s five years after the bottling date, so this has about one and a half years of age on it. Pours a dark amber. The liquid is hazy, cloudy, and highly effervescent. Large amount of fluffy, off-white head. Pleasant color, nice liquid effects, and good head. You can’t ask for much more in appearance. Very attractive beer. I narrowly decided to give it a rare 5 for appearance. Lighter in color than I expected; I had assumed it would be similar in color to 8 and 10. Tart, metallic, yeasty smell. Lemon and sneeze scents. Chocolate chip cookie, caramel, and toffee scents as well. Cinnamon. Pleasant but not outstanding smell. Dark cherry in both the aroma and flavor. Malty taste features flavors of toffee and a hint of lemon and lime. Cookie dough. Fluffy and smooth in the palate. Lively enough. Medium body. A very pleasant and accessible sipper. Overall, this is a good beer, even though it falls well short of the excellence of its stronger siblings.

Foffern (1654) - Bodø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle. The color is hazy reddish brown with a big beige head. Aroma of dried fruit, brown sugar, leather, wood and some cocoa. The flavor mirrors the aroma with a small addition of alcohol. Slick and soft mouth feel, full-bodied and has light bitterness. A nice, well-balanced and sweet classic.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - FEB 17, 2016
Colore ambrato carico con una bella schiuma crema. I sentori sono di caramello e frutti rossi, con un alcolico che richiama alla frutta sotto spirito. In bocca il corpo medio e la lieve carbonazione fanno il resto, mantenendo sempre un filo conduttore con il dolce dei malti.

TheHopster (1041) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2016
(330ml bottle) Pours a murky amber complexion with persistent head that almost lasts through the finish. Mild aroma of Belgian yeast, fresh air and faint fruit. The flavor is dried fruits, mild malt and Belgian yeast. A classic for this style. My 1000 rating on RB! So happy to participate on this great site and contribute to a truly worldwide democratic rating of beer.

Zilb (152) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - FEB 7, 2016
Odeur de chocolat au lait dans un 1er temps. Robe brune très pâle et brumeuse. Mousse fine qui ne tient pas.En bouche, très carbonée et fluide. Pas d’amertume, très très douce. Chocolat, malts légèrement grillés. Très bonne ! Bue avec Jacky et un bœuf bourguignon maison.

Rask0lnikov (657) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 2, 2016
Pale hazy brown colour. Steady medium head. Caramel in the aroma. Some malts and caramel at first. Flowery taste in middle. Sweet and caramelly finish. Well balanced, but not really interesting beer. Well balanced though. And well drinkable.
