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.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2008 With a light, sweet and fruity taste and aroma, this is a very natural and refreshing beer. Rochefort Trappistes 6 is another wonderful trappist ale. My only complaint is that is a bit thin and watery. This beer does a great job convering the 7.5% abv.

330ml. Pours brown with ruby highlights. Head is kind of white with brown threads and is fairly light and whispy as are many in this style. Nose is caramel and butterscotch with the slightest notion of cola. Body has all these things plus maybe some licorice somewhere in there. Mouthfeel is very pleasant with good carbonation and a lighter mouthfeel. Hides the alcohol very well. I am always tempted to chill these but this one really shines very close to room temp.

330. Pours a deep but crystal clear dark amber with a thick, creamy, almost gooey tan head. Minimal lace. Big buttery caramel, dark fruit, booze, and slightly hay-like nose. Quite complex. Creamy, almost buttery body. Caramel, butterscotch, dark fruit, hay- or grass-like notes, and a bit of herbal hop on the finish. Lovely stuff.

Bottle from the Front Door in Boise. Pours a light brown with a nice thick light-beige head. The aroma is mostly fruit and yeast. The taste was really quite nice; smooth fruit flavors, mostly darker fruits like plums, but also strawberries. Yeast, some soft bitterness, and some sweetness. I enjoyed this beer a lot.

Feb. 2007 - Beer poured a light brown caramel, very little head of lacing. Amazing aroma of fruity grapes and figs. Flavor was a nice complex blend of dark fruits, chocolate, molasses and spices. Really carbonated mouthfeel. I little weak in the flavor compared to the 8 & 10, but I guess that’s to be expected. As it warmed, molasses really, really came out in the aroma and flavor...like too much so - molasses overload.

I tasted this beer before I got my account with ratebeer, so I can’t really remember all the flavors.

33 cl bottle. Darkish and opaque amber brown with a beautiful beige head. The aroma is very appealing as well - sweet, plums, maraschino cherries, brown sugar, and yeast. The flavour is caramel malty sweet, with fruit, milk chocolate and spice. Almost no alcohol presence. Medium body and well carbonated. Very good and very drinkable.

little bottle Pours out a hazy brown topped with a foam off white head. Aroma sweet pit fruit and raspberrys. Tast of raspberrys some odd yeast. This was my last of the 10 8 6. They all were very good. This one was tasty.

dchmela (3078) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Deep red pour with a thick white head. Fruity yeasty aroma. Lighter than a typical dubbel, but a medium body nonetheless. Big carbonation. Fruity, yeasty, and malty taste. Very Nice.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2009 Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville. Pours cloudy orange-ish amber. Aroma of brown sugar and raisins. Taste is metallic and medicinal. Don’t like it. I got it! If you pretend its cola its not so bad.

Rerate: Didn’t take tasting notes, but I had a small sample which was much, much better. Scores updated to reflect that.
