3.74/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a chilled La Trappe goblet.

Appearance 4.0: Poured out a deep, coppery brown. Gorgeous, inch-high head quickly faded into nice swirling on top. Decent lacing. This beer bubbles like a witch's cauldron! Few times have I seen its like.

Smell 3.75: The bouquet of this beer is very subdued. What I can detect is quite nice: slight scent of chocolate, smoky grains and strange...almost apricot flavor.

Taste 3.75: Front is slightly smoky and also slightly sweet. Middle is almost completely obscured by the huge level of bubbles in this brew. I'm surprised these bottles do not explode in liquor and beer stores. What I can taste at this level is delicious: a tanin-enriched hit of sweet malt. By "tanin" I mean a deep taste of red-wine like tanins. Finish is smooth and very, very, short. Focus here is on a bit more light malt sweetness. Aftertaste is almost non-existent, but I do detect more of those delicious tanins.

Mouthfeel 3.5: Way, way too much conditioning in this beer. Too many bubbles. A shame.

Overall 3.75: It's amazing to me how so many elements of the taste sensation of beer can be accentuated or de-accentuated...so much so in either way that it becomes a distraction. In the case of this beer, the bubbles are out of control and dominate way too much of the taste sensations. A shame: this beer has many unique and appealing characteristics, but they are all overshadowed by that one thing that we take for granted with beer; carbonation.

4.53/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

330 mL bottle picked up in Port Huron; 'best before' Sept. 18 2018. As someone who has never found a truly memorable dubbel, and also was a big fan of this brewery's #8, this seemed like a very necessary pick-up. Served at cellar temperature.

Pours a cloudy amber-copper colour, generating two fingers of fluffy, pillowy off-white head that maintains cohesion for a good long while. Gobs of sticky lacing cling to the glass, as well as the top of the froth - this is one of the most attractive beers I've ever seen. Very fragrant on the nose and quite spicy, with some raisin, toasted nuts, figs, maraschino cherry, banana and chocolate. Convinced so far!

Absolutely delicious; a malt bomb that leads of notes of raisin, plum and fig before things start to get a bit spicier. Toffee and milk chocolate lead into a spicy, yeasty finish with banana, clove, cinnamon and pepper. Mild, balanced aftertaste, with some earthy hops and musty yeast that lingers. A little boozy for the abv, but this is just an observation, not a complaint. On the thicker side of medium-bodied, with a smooth, silky mouthfeel that contrasts nicely with the prickly carbonation.

Final Grade: 4.53, an A. Rochefort 6 is one of the most satisfying dubbels I have ever had the pleasure of quaffing. Honestly, if you like Belgian beers, you would be doing yourself a disservice by avoiding this - and I'll just leave it at that. A must try.

Chestnut brown in color; opaque. Huge foamy head when poured, though it dies down quickly, Nice smell - slightly sweet with hints of grain. Delicious taste; slightly sweet and mild taste of grain. Medium body; not too heavy yet not thin. Nice mild carbonation. Pleasant to drink! Very nice Belgium Trappist beer.
