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.

Butelka, warka do 05/11/2019, wiec bardzo swieze, nieulozone. Ciemno bursztynowe z czerwonymi przeblyskami piwo z dosc ladna i wysoka piana, ktora niestety bardzo szybko sie redukuje. Aromat glownie kwasne, ciemne owoce a la wisnie, czeresnie + rodzynki + alkohol. Czuc tez klasztorne drozdze, po ogrzaniu dodatkowo cos a la slodkie, kandyzowane figi i jakies bardzo delikatne ziolowe nuty. Generalnie dosc dublowy aromat. W smaku ladnie wymieszane odczucia, jest i lekka kwaskowatosc owocowa i slodycz karmelowo-figowa i delikatna goryczka - bardzo odswiezajaca mieszanka, z wysokim wysyceniem lekko musujacym na jezyku, alkoholu duzo mniej niz w aromacie. wytrawne. dobre piwo, lekkie w odbiorze, takie do wypicia przed poludniem :)

Warm nose and good looking beer in the glass. moderate head, rich brown color. Rich tastes of malt, raisin, toffee. don’t notice the alcohol, so very smooth and yummy. Overall, just a really good beer to drink. Depth and complexity without being over the top ... could definitely drink more than one.

Oelbas (219) - DENMARK - JAN 29, 2015
Klar, rødlig gylden med stabilt groft skum. Svag duft med sødme og blomster. En antydning af alkohol. Smagen er fyldig og livlig med karamel og malt. En lidt påtrængende fyldig sødme, der bliver holdt lidt i skak af en let bitterhed. Eftersmagen er sød uden megen bitterhed. Smager ikke så meget fra gæren, som andre trappistøl.

ippopotamo36 (418) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 26, 2015
0,33 bottle purchased at the Skopje Beer Shop (RIP) and consumed in Kosovo. BB 09/2018, so I guess the beer has been bottle in 2013 (over 1 year old). Pours a typical amber color, a bit cloudy with a very gassy and persistent ivory head which stays there. Nose: mild candy fruit, spices. Mouth: session beer feel for a 7,5% Belgian Strong Ale, easy drinking, dry end with a spicy body and a mild fruity aroma. Candy orange a bit of coriander. A very nice brew.

chinchill (2284) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Pours a cloudy brown-amber; cloudier if sediment added, as I did. Lovely lasting tan head, towering at first, but settles to a nice creamy top coat. T - complex and superbly balanced. Lacking the dark fruit flavor of a standard BSDA, this beer features a lighter fruitiness, lighter color and lighter aroma than usual for BSDA, but that’s not to be held against this beer which makes no such claims about style. M - perfect carbonation. Light-medium body. O - I had high expectations, based on my love of Rochefort 8. My high expectations were surpassed, although I believe I like the R8 better and I more eager than ever to try it, and the 6, again

Bottle @ home. Pours cloudy dark amber with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are caramel, dried fruit, sugar, and yeast - with a slightly dry finish.
