Rochefort 6 is lovely nectar that that pours dark brown with amber hues with a modest off white head. The aroma is fruity and woody with a hint of alcohol esters. The flavor is sweet and malty with woody notes and fruits like raisons, white grapes, prune and dried cherries popping in and out. It has a medium body and lively carbonation. The texture is smooth and coats the tongue. I really enjoyed this outstanding trappistes beer.

Bottle, from Noel Cuveliers, Abele. Deep red/brown horse color, sand colored layer of bubbles that refuse to leave. Old candy store nose, green grass, a pinch of cocoa and clove. Peppery milk chocolate sweetness, a little barn wood, mineral dry finish with a little lingering molassas tartness.

a great double...I think I like this more than the westmalle....more roasted malt flavor...at least in the smaller bottles of the westmalle for comparason....great estery notes and I must say....wow I hope to drink more of this in the future...great dark redish brown color and also tons of dried fruit flavors in the finish that works well with the roasted malt flavors

Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma is spicy with notes of meat, sherry and dried fruit. Flavour is quite spicy with notes of meat, spices, roasted malts and fruit. Not bad - but I prefer the 10!

elcaballo (101) - Beverly Hills, California, USA - MAY 10, 2008
One of the best beers I have ever had. The apperence of this beer is just amazing, dark brown with a fluffy head that leaves a thin cover all over the glass. The flavor is bready with some dark fruit and a touch of chocolate. The palate is fantastic...lacks a bit of the complexity of 8 and 10 but it hardly matters as what is here is near perfect. I could drink this forever

Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 10, 2008
Couleur ambre brune. Laisse une bonne mousse trs arienne qui se dissipe assez rapidement. Prsente un trs lger voile. Le parfum est intense et agrable; tarte au pomme, caramel, sucre brun, malte sucr. Le got est intense en premier lieu. On dirait un whisky rduit quelque peu. Il y a beaucoup de sucres aromatiques tapisss dune lgre amertume. Par contre larrire-got cendr est plutt unidimensionnel, il ma sembl. La bouche est carrment fantastique. Lalcool est chaleureux, la bire est ptillante. Cest un plaisir tactile! Cest une bire fantastique, mais je suis convaincu que la 8 ou la 10 seront encore meilleures.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAY 8, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2010 Hazy amber body with a large beige head. Herbal hops, light caramels and dark fruit aromas. Fairly dry with doughy bready malts, light toffee, spicy hops and plummy undertones. Medium/light body is soft. Carbonation is moderate to high and just a bit prickly. Extremely quaffable nonetheless.
