Bottle dated 280114. Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a chalice. It pours hazy brown due to sediment with a frothy white head. The head quickly dissipates and leaves a little bit of white head on the top. Bubbles can be seen meeting the head, indicating high carbonation. The aromas of caramel, fig, roasted malt, and Belgian yeast hit the nose. I can also detect a small amount of alcohol. The taste is sweet, but not too sweet. The flavors of caramel and fig go a long way towards covering up the alcohol content, but the faint taste of alcohol is there. The mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation and a dry finish. The carbonation prepares you for the next drink. This is very easy to drink. Overall, this is an outstanding beer.

Rochefort 6 is slightly better so far than the two 8's I have tried, which were variable in quality, as seems to be the case here with other reviewers. I will try the 10, but for the price, I'll take Bernardus, Duvel, Orval, any day.
A: Pours a hazed, sienna body, well carbonated resulting in ample, mounding, but short-lived, foamy, off-white head that laces as you enjoy.
Smell: The aroma is the best part, with dominant, complex fruit like a wine: Flower shop, apples, cider, and ripe plums, and a back end of yeast, and more flowers, incense, varnish, and a bit of pepper.
Taste: Follows the smell, with more brown sugar and caramel coated fruits. .Bright floral highlights and fruitiness mixed with tempering yeasts. No hint of alcohol, but wine-like, warming, tannin and with a nutty finish. (DEFINITELY A MUST WITH CHEESE)
Mouthfeel: Well carbonated, a bit prickly, and thinner than I would like.
Drinkability: Very complex, enjoyable brew, for me a bit thin, too carbonated, and 2nd rank to the fuller dubbels out there. 4.25 for its rare complexity, and it's after dinner elegance.
I think I found ideal match with Comte & Irish raisin soda bread.
