3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The date code stamped on the label stated L 21 02 12 08:23. I understand that indicates an expiration date of 2012, meaning a bottling date of February 2007. Poured into a large wine glass, the beer is a russet-orange color with a thick beige head. The head drops to a thin layer with moderate lacing. The aroma is muted with notes of caramel, spice and dark fruit. The flavor profile is on the mild side as well. Some dark cherries and bready yeast can be picked out, but there’s no particular flavor that stands out. There is a bit of alcohol warmth noted that’s more than I expected from the 7.5% ABV. The mouthfeel is smooth with a cider-like tang. The Rochefort 6 was an easy to drink beer that presents a very subtle aroma and flavor profile.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I bought it from An Amsterdam beer shop, which carries many of the other Trappist monks' beers, as well as a range of German, dutch, and other worldly beers.
Opening into this was like my birthday. The rush caramel color gave way to a smooth taste, and surprisingly good aftertaste. Would drink it again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mostly maltiness, light caramel, fruitiness, dried fruits, berries, light yeast, light spices. Moderate sweet with light bitterness in finish. Sadly for me it lacks intensity like 8 and 10, but anyways - quite nice brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aussehen: braun und trüb, im Licht leuchtender Bernstein weißer Schaum
Aroma: süß, leicht karamellig
Geschmack: der Einstieg ist überraschend scharf und rauchig, würzig. Nach kurzer Gewöhnung entwickelt sich ein spannendes Bier mit etwas Hopfen und einer guten Portion Röstmalz mit Aromen von Schokoladenkeksen.

É uma boa pedida tomar todas as 3 Rochefort em sequencia, iniciando por essa. É perceptivel o menor teor alcoolico, paladar reflete mais a presença dos maltes, tornando-a menos doce. Minha marca trapista favorita.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance- amber, a solid one finger off-white head which hangs around. Aroma- creamy malt, chocolate orange, biscuit, yeasty, spicy, hint of banana bread. Taste- very nice. Tangy orange, brown, malty bread, hint of pepper, orange peel and spice, vague caramel sweetness, fizzy and fluffy in the mouth, some dark fruit undertones, sugary raisin. Really good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy amber color with huge fine-grained steady head. Aroma is not strong but complex: caramel notes, some dry fruits, some yeast. Taste is lightly sweet, mild. Tastes like it’s not strong beer. Finish is surprisingly short. Very nice delicate ale.
