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.

Quite a sour aroma. Pours darker than I was expecting, a rich brown with a good head at first. Quite a complex palate, fruity, plums, raisins, obvious high alcohol. Grows on you after a while. Nice flavours

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 Underwhelmed with this. Dark amber red. Typical tastes of a Belgium double without being particularly interesting. Was surprised by how weak and watery I found it. Much prefer the 8 but do need to try this again.,a

Good, but a long ways from my favorite Belgium. It grows on you as you drink it. Notes of dried bread crust. Slightly sour, very Effervescent with a dry finish. It would be very good with some quality cheese and crackers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I'm South Korean. I served mandatory army service in U.S. Army post. I bought it at P.X. with my fellow soldier, and at that time I didn't know the fame of this beer. I can not forget when I drink it at first time. This beer is the top of my beers.

GhostS (426) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 17, 2017
Aromă cu multe fructe caramelizate și dulceață, puține fructe fermentate (gen caise și piersici), flori uleioase de câmp, ceva caise uscate și drojdii. Gust plăcut, ușor dulce (foarte plăcut și bine combinat) și puțin amar, cu multe fructe caramelizate, ceva fructe fermentate, note de drojdii belgiene, puțină aciditate datorată carbogazării destul de înalte. Foarte bună. O belgiană ușoară, balasantă și plăcută.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2017 Lidt karamel i næsen. Halvsød smag med den karakteristiske smag af belgisk gær. Bør ikke nydes for kold.

Bijl (752) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2017
Donker amberrood, crèmekleurige foamy schuimkraag, iets troebel van de gist en veel koolzuur. Aroma: Kandijsuiker, karamel, fruitige gist, mout, beetje jam fruitig. Smaak: Iets zoet, karamel, moutig zoet, kruidig en peperig, droog met een bittertje en een fruitige jammige hint van de gist. Allemaal iets rustiger als de Rochefort 8 en 10 maar zeker wel smaakvol. Medium body, veel koolzuur, prikkelig en bruisend mondgevoel.  Afdronk is droog en kruidig.

Color rojo oscuro, más claro si le da la luz, turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación alta visualmente. Textura oleosa y ligeramente chispeante. Aroma a fruta madura (pasas, sobre todo), vagamente floral, especiado, ligeramente dulce (azúcar, caramelo), con reminiscencias de bizcocho. En boca entra dulce, con fruta madura y mucho caramelo fortón, flores, toque herbal, especias. Final de ligero amargor y algo de sequedad. Postgusto a dark fruits y caramelo. Alcohol maravillosamente integrado tanto en aroma como en sabor. La recordaba más impactante, pero es verdaderamente sutil y se agradece.
