3.77/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the 11.2 oz. bottle into a Unibroue stemmed flute.

a: Nearly clear amber with a huge four inch thick white head which receded to thick even surface foam and patchy lacing, Required additional pours to fill the glass.

s; Mild ripe fruit with floral and vegetal notes.

t; A moderate fruity/vegetal flavor with some sweetness. Mainly dry finish with slight floral and vegetal aftertaste.. Higher ABV is not evident.

m: Light to medium, good body, good carbonation tingle.

o: A good drinkable Belgian dubbel with an unique flavor profile. However, not as enjoyable as anticipated given that I have previously tried both 8 and 10.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy medium to dark bronze amber with a healthy three finger off-white head with great retention and lots of pillowly lacing. Spicy aroma of light stone fruit, dates, raisins, light nuts, cherry; the clove and earthy spices really dominate this more than other Rochefort ales. Flavor is sweet dates, figs, apricot with rapidly developing spiciness of clove and other earthy spices, finisihing with concentrated fruit, caramel and light hops. Really complex flavor. Nice creamy, medium heavy body. An exceptional Belgian ale and possibly the richest, most complex dubbel I've had. I wondered why I never had reviewed this, and it's possible that I always went for its bigger brothers, 8 and 10. If so, my loss. This is as flavorful and interesting as those ales. An exceptional dubbel from one of the best breweries in the world. A total pleasure to drink.

Beautiful tawny hue with a thin white head, this beer is gorgeous. It shows signs of moderate carbonation and the lacing left on the glass is wonderful. Rochefort 6's aroma is reminiscent of black cherry, cognac, red wine, and plum. The flavor dances on one's palate with a splash of sweetness and a soft, bready foundation. Belgian yeast, nuts, and molasses all come through nicely. It feels relatively light as it coats the mouth, and the finish is satisfying. Overall, this is a top choice to serve to guests with hors d' oeuvres that have discerning tastes.

Bottle drank at Chocolate and Vines in Rochester, NY.

Smells like caramel, toffee, dark fruits, light Belgian yeast, and some vanilla.

This tastes interesting, and honestly, pretty great. I get a good amount of dark fruits, toffee, caramel, malt, prunes, and some grape-like tartness on the finish. I'm not getting any hop flavors, just a lot of great malt complexities.

This is medium bodied, with a not-too-sweet mouthfeel, luckily. There is a lower level of carbonation.

As expected, this was really tasty. I can't believe it's taken me this long to try it.
