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.

Licht bruin bier met crèmekleurige romige schuimkraag. Geur: licht zoet, kandij, wat gedroogd fruit, vijg en licht florale hoppig. Smaak: licht zoet, brood, karamel, wat rozijn. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Medium volmondig. Afdronk: licht bitterzoet.

Figs, some chocolate or marzipan in there as well, plums, I see you with the Darjeeling tea. Very volatile head. Phenomenal balance, not too sweet, not tiring at all.

lkowalkowski (408) - POLAND - JUL 13, 2017
Bursztynowe, zamglone z gęstą pianą. Piana dosyć szybko się redukuje, nie zdobi szkła. W aromacie ciemne i czerwone owoce. Trochę przypraw. Jest też karmelowa słodycz. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie. Przyjemny karmelowy finisz. Przyjemnie się pije.

tlyx (102) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2017
Doft av parfymerat te, nypon. En aning fruktig smak, svart te, torr avslutning med en viss kärvhet. För att vara en belgisk ale känns det nästan som en vanlig öl.

Bouteille 33 cl - couleur brune opaque, mousse beige crémeuse épaisse et persistante, arômes cerise noire, petites bulles, goût sur le pain, torréfié, alcool qui réchauffe la gorge, complexe mais très agréable
