Rochefort 6 (AGED: VINTAGE 1990s) (Rating 9/10) - 7.5 ABV - 6 September 2007

This is again an aged trappist ale from Wim hailing from Netherlands. This one did not disappoint me but after having a fan-frigging-tastic 1984 or 85 La Trappe Dubbel, it is hard to beat that unless you are a well aged Chimay Blue or a Westy. Well this Rochefort 6 is still, a pretty well
aged beer, most probably from the mid 90s or even late 90s; it has the old Rochefort label too. Anyway, this beer, like most vintage beers pours out a brownish color with little of a head and has a nice light foamy lacing. It smells of strong fruits and has the typical aged beer smell
which I detected in all my vintage beers thus far. Even at this age the Rochefort 6's taste is not something that hits you like the 1984 La Trappe Dubbel; some yeast and breadiness on entry but not significant; the taste is sufficiently strong and obvious and is mainly plums and maybe some berries; not exactly a very rich fruity taste but pretty tasty all the same and leaving some plum aroma on the nose. The finish brings more plums on to the nose and was a very soothing plum taste
to transit into the after taste which was plums, berries and grapes. The after taste lingers on for quite a bit before fading away with a raisin or grape backing. Mouth feel on this one is between medium to thin body; as like the contemporary Rochefort 6, it is a little too thin for its style;
carbonation is still pretty high for this one like the contemporary one but quickly drops over time. Smoothness and drinkability was simply revolutionary; it is as smooth, drinkable and refreshing as water but of course with the greatness of Rochefort 6 itself. I have never had a beer this smooth, drinkable and refreshing before and this part of it sets it apart really positively. Overall it is definitely a notch better than the contemporary Rochefort 6 and I would call it a well aged and pretty fruity tasty beer with a revolutionary smoothness and refreshing nature.
